    your best bet is to go to a camera shop and have a look round and a good feel.

    I could tell you to go for Sony coz mine are both Sony, but someone else could go Nikon or Canon because those own them.

    I advised some one on a camera only a few days ago (yes a Sony) he search high and low for this camera it was getting 9/10 reviews etc, Every where he tried to reverse on the net it was sold out but he managed to get one.

    Lucky for us both he got it from jessops in the end and had a feel and it felt great in his hands when he was holding it, and after taking a few test shots he is amazed on how it feels to hold and how much better it takes pictures.

    Check out the 2nd hand market Rob.

    Nikon D40's like mine, you seen at the meet, and what pics are like. Good camera for the money. Can pick them up with a few lens's and accessories for under 300 nuggets.

    Don't dive into the deep end of cameras and spend a load of money. Just start off with a basic DSLR, just incase photography isn't what you hoped.

    Go for a Sony a290! I got one now as my first dslr and it's very good! Easy to use, a great cam to start with and can get a brand new one for about £280 from eBay!

    I got myself a Nikon D3100 and love it! very easy to use and even has a cool wee guide built in to show you how to take different types of pics. aswell as different pre-sets for different types of pictures, landscape,sport etc and they are not bad
    Just because it smokes like a taxi doesnt mean it goes like one
