    Compact/point and shoot won't push you further in photography! they are meant to be in your bag or pocket and you can just take them out and shoot! whereas a DSLR will force you to learn about photography and optics. so decide which one is your preference! i didn't understand what your budget is? so if decide to with point and shoot, stick to canon (ie G11), if you decide you want to go further into photography and get a DSLR then that is a whole different ball game. so whats you budget again?

    I am 100% recommending the G11. I have been using a G9 for about a year and it is an amazing camera. I could rant and rave about specifics but in summary, the Canon G series is beyond worth the money to me. :thumbup:

    When it comes to low noise then you have to go with higher end dslr, for your price range the best DSLR i would recommend is the Nikon D5000! so if you go the dslr way look into it!

    Go DSLR, you wont regret it.

    You can buy Nikon D40's on ebay for around 300-400$. Dont waste your money on a P&S and then realize you want a DSLR. PLUNGE! :lol:
