    A prosumer cam with Manual controls will be good for learning. But this cam is pretty old and it's only a 2MP cam. I would suggest you get a higher spec cam to get better quality picture. Try looking for a Sony H5, H7, H9, Konica Minolta A1, A2, A200, Fujifilm 9500, 9600, 6500 or Nikon 8400, 8700, 8800. These are very nice cameras which you can get from the Buy/Sell section here.

    To me, a prosumer cam is a consumer cam with the ability to let you adjust the controls manually but does not have the ability th change lens like a DSLR.

    The budget you have may not be able to get you a prosumer with high specs. Do check out some used cams offered in the Classified corner.

    PM me if you need help or advise.

    With oyur budget, look for a second-hand Sony V1 or V3. Very powerful prosumer cameras.
