I am interested in buying a decent camera and need some advice. What would be the best camera for me to buy? Not just for plane photography but for other things as well. If possible, I would like to spend around $300 US. I'm completely clueless, help! I am looking for just a very good simple camera with a good lense, something that I can really learn with. Thanks in advance.

I had to make this decision last year. I got a used canon rebel G with 2 lenses (35-80mm, 80-200mm) for about $350. I'm very happy with it. You may want to get the latest model (Rebel 2000) for a little more. It has a better metering and autofocus system.
Look at ebay.com.

Mabye you could go to WalMart or a store that sells SLR cameras and get one at a bargain. Just check sores like Best Buy, Circut City, or other stores like those I mentioned. WalMart has a cheap Canon EOS Rebel X for $199.00. They also have Nikon and the Canon EOS Rebel 2000.
