I suggest you read the guides that I and Dream Killer (grammatically incorrect, but phrased in the order you should read them) first. Link to mine is in my sig, link to DK's is in my guide.

As far as cameras go, look at a refurbished Rebel XS or Nikon D3000. The D3000 is covered in my guide as well, the XS is a now-outdated model that can still take some great images. Both are excellent choices for beginners.

I've gotta sell my XS. <1100 actuations, gripped, sitting in a box. Great investment.

Sell for $300 on POTN, or buy an $80 18-55mm IS and sell for $400 here. Or trade for a 50 f/1.4.

(My speech gets more direct the less sleep/more coffee I have)

For 300 bucks I would rather keep it as a backup. It still has the kit lens, and the grip is Canon branded.

For MF probably step it up to 6x6 or 6x7. Mamiya RZ's sell for cheap and are still being released by Mamiya (and now have a digital system). If you want something smaller though and don't want to pay for a Hasselblad then I guess 645 is fine. Just it's smaller in comparison to the other formats.

EDIT: And stay away from Bronica.
