    I currently have a FinePix A210 (3.2mp), I use my camera for the following things:

    - Snapshots
    - Band photos/Movement
    - Photos for use in projects (posters etc)

    I'm starting a Graphic Design course in September so I need a higher res camera - 6-8mp?

    I have around £200ish to spend, so any suggestions?

    Cheers.

    What kind of memory card does your current one take? If your budget is only £200, I'd guess you don't want to fork out another £30 on cards?

    If it's xD, then consider looking at the Fuji F10/11 - they were going for £199 at Christmas and likely lower now that the F30 is out. Great pics in lowlight, 6MP and amazing battery life. Screen is slightly low res though

    The Canon Rebel XT is my choice, if you want a more professional model spend a few more bucks and get the 20D.
