  2. A complex question as there are so many choices. Do you want advice on a
    point and shoot or a DSLR? I realize that you posted to a SLR group, but
    that does rule out some of the P&S cameras, which are very good choices for
    many users.

    If you really want a DSLR, check out the Canon XTi ... darned good value!

    Tell us what you would like to do with your camera.

    If you have one nearby, Costco's planning on having it (to replace the
    XT's that they sold previously in huge quantities) at an $899 intro
    price within the next few weeks. Of course, the original XT intro'd at
    $999 there, and within a year was down to $699. YMMV
