I have a point and shoot camera right now, but i want to get a better one with income tax next year so i am wondering where to start to learn how to use the manual functions of my camera. My point and shoot has a bunch but i never figured them out. Is there any good websites that would help. Once I get my better camera I want to find a class to take.

I too, am new to photography and have been doing some research on the internet over the last week as I'm trying to decide which camera to buy...

Take a look at this. I found it on the Canon website. It's explains what an SLR camera is and what all it's components are, then goes through all the functions of taking photos (shutter speed, aperture, ISO, how the different lens effect the photograph etc). If you are at the same level as me (just learning), then this website will be great for you - it is REALLY helping me come to terms with all the technical guff and is explained so clearly!

I also find websites like 'Amazon.co.uk' really helpful as there is a lot of reviews on some of the cameras I've been looking at.

Hope that helps. If I find anything else, I'll let you know!

If you're thinking of getting a digital SLR, I would use this link:

http://www.all-things-photography.com/digital-slr.html

If you're thinking of getting a 35mm SLR, I would use this link:

http://library.thinkquest.org/25780/

Also, if you're going to be using a 35mm, I can offer some help!
