I think a good camera to get would be the Pentax KX. I have this camera and Its perfect. Between 500 and 700 dollars, loaded with features and alot of photography websites are pumped on the good quality of the camera for how cheap it is. The camera is also very samll compared to some of the other SLR's which makes easy to work with in bad conditions. Hope I helped.
