    If you are serious about photography and only have about $600 to spend, you should get a Digital SLR camera like the Canon Rebel XTi and not some point and shoot.

    B & H (www.bhphotovideo.com) has used Rebels bodies for as low as $529. You can get it with a 18-55 lens for as low as $595 (before shipping).

    On eBay or pricegrabber, you can probably get it even cheaper.

    The Rebel is a good starter camera for someone who wants to become a serious photographer.

    Also, if you don't want to do the whole DSLR thing I would encourage you to look around for a Canon S3 IS instead of the S5. They are VERY similar and the S3 (the slightly older model) is MUCH cheaper.

    Of course, once you get the Rebel for $400, you'll start talking yourself into spending hundreds and then thousands of dollars on lenses. Which are all totally worth it.

    :) Just be on your guard! Seriously, if it were me, I'd get a Rebel and the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 lens and you'll be able to capture some excellent images. Skip the kit lens and save yourself a few dollars.

    the G9 isnt bad, but remmeber it is the person behind the camera not the camera itself that takes the picture.
