Would you be willing to spring for a DSLR? We have a Nikon and adore it.

We have the Nikon D60 and love it. It’s not as fancy as a lot of the newer ones, but we got a good deal by purchasing it body only (R already had compatible lenses from his Nikon SLR) and then splurging on a great zoom lens later on.

Go Canon. The XS is super easy to figure out and the price range is about what you’re wanting to get. It is great for beginners. I do not own the XS but my friend does and it was super easy for her to figure out. I have a 30d and a 40d currently. The lens it comes with it pretty versitile. Walmart carries the Canon XS in store as does Target and Best Buy. Also check out Craigslist. You can find good deals there too.

I’d get a Panasonic Lumix. It’s still a point and shoot, but with various manual modes.

I have a Canon Rebel Xsi and I find it very easy to use as a beginner.  It is a big improvement just from my canon point and shoot. It is close to your price range with a lens.

I did a lot of research when I worked in corporate communications for a point and shoot for our department. I was surprised when, hands down, the Panasonic Lumix blew everything else away (one of the higher-end models). It’s fantastic, easy, and takes gorgeous pics.

If you think you might be interested in learning more about photography, then go with a dSLR; otherwise, I’d definitely go with the Panasonic Lumix.

I have a Nikon D40x SLR. It’s about two years old. It takes fantastic pictures and I adore it.
