Now I'm looking into getting a DSLR because I think they will take better pictures in various situations. (My house has horrible lighting inside, I want to take great macros, I want artsy shots of my kids, want to take framable shots of the gorgeous scenery here in Oregon, etc.) At the same time I'm a cheapskate and it HUUURTS to spend so much money on a camera.
I'm looking at Canons because I've heard a lot of great things about them, and my SIL with the photography degree has one.
Right now I'm favoring the cheapest model, the Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS, because, well, it costs the least.
Does anyone know or have experience with this kind of camera, will I be happy? Are you happy with your camera? Even though it's the cheapest, will I be happy with the pictures?
Halp! I don't want to buy the "cheap" expensive camera and regret it later. It's so hard for me to pony up so much money! (Not necessarily financially but emotionally!)

So IMO Canons are definitely worth the money.

ETA: We ended up having to put the $$ toward something else, but fortunately my current camera still works and I am saving up again.
