A question

Hi everyone,
I'm new to this community, and I'm so glad I found it. Members have posted some incredible photos.

I have a couple questions that I'm hoping you'll help me out with. First, I want to get a new digital camera. Can anyone recommend one they really like? I don't have a lot of money to spend; I'm thinking probably under $200. I've heard a lot of great things about Canon.

My second question has to do with exploring abandoned places. What do you do when a placed is "closed" or there are "no trespassing" signs posted? I went to a local cemetery over the weekend (it's supposedly haunted), and the sign on the gate in front read "Closed except for family." All I want to do is look around and take some photos. Have any of you been confronted by a caretaker, groundskeeper, police officer before? And if so, how did you handle it? Of course, I know that you must always be courteous and leave when told. I'm just wondering about your experiences and how you've handled situations. I'm just starting to get more serious about exploring some abandoned places, and I want to be as prepared as possible.

Thanks (in advance) for your responses.
