Well, ultimately I want a really good professional DSLR/SLR combo, but I'm still learning and any decent camera that I can get my hands on without breaking my budget is definitely a good thing.

This one. NO $$$ involved. It cost me about 9 hours at the computer doing some serious digital imaging work. Likely I'll have to order the batteries for it on Amazon. I can never find camera batteries locally. I won't be able to play with it much till next week but when I do we'll see whether or not it was worth all the work I put into acquiring it.

If not, I guess there's always Ebay....
