Need recommendations as I'm starting a photography course and where I study the cameras are comparable to mid 90's webcams.
All help is appreciated.

under £99, probably only film cameras will make the cut. you can get going with b/w film for very cheap if you develop it yourself; but then, it's another technique to learn.
maybe you can get an digital canon 300d or 400d for that price, that is, an old dslr, but still very good image quality (compared to point-and-shoot cameras, smartphones etc).
just checked ebay.co.uk and seems that you can get an canon 400d/450d for under £99, easily.
it's a very good deal.
these cameras aren't up to most recent technologies, but, up to £99, no camera will be. they aren't no slouch either: 8~10mpx on a larger sensor (aps-c) are more than enough for amateurs use; especially when coupled with a reasonable lens (such as 50mm 1.8).
just be careful to assure that the camera has been well cared for.
Got pentax mz-5n with two zoom lenses for around 32 usd.
Hopefully one day I can take photos like pic related.
Got to agree with looking at the samsungs line.
Not a system you want to invest into too much in terms of lenses but you can pick up some of the NX1000/1100 for very cheap £150/160 (much less if you get the ones without a kit lens and you buy or adapt one you own.)
Though those little fuckers dont have a view finder which makes bright light a pain in the ass to work in due to the screen glare.
no idea why i typed >400d ignore plox.
but here is a body only listing for the nx1100 as an example.
