Digital Cameras - update post #23 with questions

I'm looking for a new digital camera too. So, I'm bumping this thread!

I *love* my Canon S5 IS!

If you're *really* willing to handle the bulk, I recommend a dSLR. But I love my camera if you're going to go the point and shoot direction. I just graduated to fully manual when using it, but just in auto it works well, too. It's a really awesome camera.

So hubby and I are going to go check out some cameras at Ritz Camera in the next day or two.

We're going to look at DSLR and Advanced digital P&S.

If you have a DSLR - which one? Do you like it - what do you like and what don't you like? Do you find it easy to use... and was it easy to learn to use?

If you have an Advanced digital point-and-shoot - which one? Do you like it - what do you like and what don't you like? Are you happy with the quality of pictures?
Ah, it all makes sense now. Goldy is the puppet master!

I have a DSLR (Canon Rebel XTi) that I bought a couple of years ago and I am really happy with it. Canon has since come out with a few upgraded Rebel models--XS, XSi, & T1i--so you can probably find my version at a discount.

The latest model (T1i) is on pre-order right now & also has an HD movie capture mode. <insert drool smilie right here>

There are auto modes on DSLR cameras, so, really, you should be able to just take it out of the box, charge it up and start shooting. Reading the instructions probably won't hurt, either.

If you want to take advantage of the manual modes, I'd suggest you buy a supplemental book or take a class. There are plenty of good websites out there, too, but it was all pretty foreign to me until I had someone right there in front of me to explain it all.
