I have a Nikon D60 that a DSLR and love it. I have a 14 month and and take tons of pictures of him with it.  I know for Nikon for their DSLR’s that the lens are interchangeable so if I ever do an upgrade the lens I have will fit . 

And just because I love showing off my cutie here is a picture of him took with the camera.

If you don’t plan on taking a DSLR off of automatic, I wouldn’t suggest investing money into it.  There are a lot of decent point and shoots that will do what a lower end DSLR does on Auto.

I would suggest either Canon or Panasonic for point and shoots.

But to be COMPLETELY honest, iphone’s are not the worst options for every day photos.  I’m a photographer and have a couple of photographer friends who use their iphone’s for their every day and travel pictures because they are that great of quality.  If you don’t have an iphone, then definitely look into Canon or Panasonic.

Have you looked into ILC’s? They’re becoming increasingly popular & give you the opportunity to get a hybrid between a digitial camera & a DSLR and are usually a little cheaper. Not sure how reliable they are though since they are a recent arrival in the photo world.

@carriejuly:   Well if you are familiar, or willing to become familiar, with ISO, f/stops, exposure, white balance, etc. then a DSLR could be a great option.

My first DSLR was a Nikon D40 and I’ve had Nikon’s since.  I would purchase it body only and buy the 50mm 1.4 (if you can afford it), or the 1.8 which is a little cheaper.  They call it the “nifty fifty” because it’s a great lens that everyone should own, especially for portraits.

@carriejuly:  I am no means an expert on cameras. I have had my camera almost 4 years/5 years now.  It is pretty easy to use and love it.  I have 3 lens so far for it and want another lens to do macros.

If I were you I’d probably just look at getting a good quality point and shoot. Like PP said, there’s not much point in getting a DSLR unless you’re going to make the most of it.

The Canon IXUS point and shoot range is really good and easy to use.
