    Hello, I'm new to the whole photography scene, I've never taken pictures before with the intent of making a good picture usually just family occasions small things where the pictures didn't really matter to a certain extent, but I've always had an interest in photography.

    I have no idea on what I need to look for, I figured a DSLR would be the best, however with very little experience on my behalf, I don't know if I should start with a high end regular digital camera.

    My Budget is between $200 - $400, maybe a little more

    So please give me your opinions

    Thanks.

    Have you looked at the Canon G11. That is a nice little camera, be perfect for taking some really nice photos without the complications and expense of DSLR's.
    In your budget. I saw one this weekend for under $400.

    I like the look of that one, however I suppose it's because i'm in the UK but the cheapest I can find one is around $530 + but I will keep that in mind.

    I buy all my stuff on the internet, B&H is very trust worthy.
    I imagine you will get some more feedback on this from other posters, just my opinion.
    I see so many people diving into DSLRs that frankly would have been much better served with a camera like the G11.
