I am doing an independent study project in school about photography. An independent study project is a science project where we research and learn about a topic of our choice. I chose photography because a camera sounded like an interesting machine and I wanted to learn all about it.
My question is what kind of camera do you recommend for an intermediate photographer?
Do you suggest a SLR? Or maybe just a regular snapshot camera? Or a rangefinder (if they still exist)? I need to know what you think so I know what kind to get. Whatever kind you say I will try to get.

I suggest a good mid-level 35mm SLR in either autofocus or manual (your choice)made by Nikon or Cannon. Something like a Nikon N60 or Cannon Elan II should fit the bill nicely. You might want to take a look at rec.photo.net/photo/ for some good info on purchasing cameras and techniques. Regards, JLee
