I know very little about photography but need to briefly study it for my course at university. I've been quite interested in getting into photography for some time now, so, I'm looking for a decent digital camera.

I can spend around £200 - £250. Possibly £300. I'm not sure if I should get a compact or a DSLR. I'd really like a a compact for conveience... but I'm guessing the picture quality really odesn't compare to that of a DSLR? Any suggestions on specific models or things to look out for a welcome.

Photography thread pleeeease.
