Default Re: Any advice for my first camera?

I am no camera expert, but I will tell you that if you start getting into photography, you will quickly outgrow the fixed lens point and shoot cameras. I just purchased the Canon RebelXS for just under $600.00 USD, and it's less on for starters. It's an entry level SLR, easy to use, and once you outgrow the kit lens, you just add on lenses, unlike the fixed lens camera you have to totally replace. The lenses, at least most of the ones I want, will set you back several hundred to several thousand, though.

Or, you could go the route of an inexpensive compact point and shoot, if you don't think you will be interested in more than snapshots for the future.
