    I have a friend that's in photography at school. They asked for a "fully manual" camera. Only examples on EBay I've found are $100+ whereas my friend would really only like to spend <$50. Tips on finding cameras that would work for his purpose? He was sent to a pawn shop and we'll check that, but if they don't have any he might be fucked.

    Well if he's studying photography he's going to need a fully manual camera so he might as well bite the bullet. $100 may get you a cheap used one. I don't think you're going to find much for less than that.

    Fully manual means that you can override the camera's ability to automatically choose the settings for you and choose settings that you want.

    Things like Aperature, Shutter, zoom, focus

    What he said. (My reply is so pointful...) But you beat me to the punch... by quite a bit.
