What would be the best DSLR to get for a beginner?

I'm planning on starting a beginners photography course in September but don't know what kind of camera to get. I want a DSLR or SLR whichever is best? For around £350 and one that will kind of grow with me if that makes sense, so as I advance into intermediate and advanced I can begin to use new features with it such as new lenses etc. Any ideas?

thanks.

Well presumably an SLR (as opposed to a DSLR) would be something that still used film.

You definitely want digital. Otherwise you'll always have trouble finding film, and then always have further trouble getting it developed.


CNET has rankings for three different levels of DSLR. And (good timing) they revised their rankings just four days ago. That is not quite the same as recommending what is best for a beginner, but it should give a good idea of what is a good camera at various price points.

Entry level:

Midrange:

Professional:

I didn't figure out the currency conversion to see what price point you are aiming for, but the "entry level" and "midrange" cameras are nearly at the same price point.
