i hate to burst your bubble, you don't need an expensive dslr camera - although they are nice. i have an inexpensive pansonic that has adjustable settings. you just have to put it on manual so you can change them sometimes. but not all cameras have that option. if you have $100 you can spend go shopping for a point and shoot that you can use now. they are convenient to have. then when you can afford the nice canon, you will have the smaller one for backup. i bought mine for like 60 or 80 during a black friday sale a couple of years ago.
