I currently have a Sony Cyber-shot (dsc-w35) which is a fair few years old now. I have always been interested in photography and have taken some nice shots with this camera. However I am due to start a photography course in May and want something a little more professional.
I have been doing some research but still can't make up my mind between a dslr or a csc. I am only 5ft with small hands so the csc leans with me on that side, but I want something that I am not going to 'grow' out of also. There isn't a great deal of difference in price between the entry cameras so it has left me stuck.
Any advice, my budget is around £400, unless there is a great deal out there!! I was advised to avoid cannon, so haven't looked at these in detail.
