    Depends on your budget and what you want to take photos of. There is a ton of good info on this site. Try a search if you have not already.

    I recommend getting a disposable camera and mess around with it to see what you like shooting.

    Once that is determined you can ask for portrait recommendations, landscape recomendations, etc.

    Hmmm, never heard of that idea asfixiate. But i think thats a good idea for people who have never taken a picture before in their lives. Just after you get the shots proccesed evaluate what you enjoy shooting the most.

    I don't recommend anything less than a Canon Xti plus a 17-50mm IS f/2.8. (only because it's what I started with) :) Now I have a 5D with 4 L lenses ranging from 16mm to 200mm. Hehe.. Ya I'm broke too.
