Quote: Thank you all for the comments! I am looking at either a Fujifilm Finepix S8200 or a fuji hs50. Also im going to try some out tomorrow so hopefully that'll help
looks like the S8200 would be a fine choice and well within your budget too, There is a review on dpreview and probably more on the tube.
It does have a motorized zoom which would be slow for bird ,wildlife and action shots perhaps but your course work is probably going to cover lots more than action shots so it shouldn't be a hinderance.
if you are looking at the S8200 you might also consider the Fuji SL1000 which is pretty similar with a 50x zoom .
Fuji Finepix S8200 review
Thank you weseeyou I am seriously considering buying the S8200 as it seems to have everything I'll need, as nice as the HS50 looks it's just too expensive for me.
