Looking for....

I am in need of a new camera since our has apparently decided it's day has come and gone. Of course it decided this while we were on vacay to Paris...fabulous right?!!!  Sooo anywho I am really wanting to get a good camera that hopefully I will not have to replace again in just a few shorts years.  I keep seeing all these different types of cameras and to be honest with you I am totally lost.

I have seen quite a few cameras that sound fantastic but I would love to actually have some opinions from others who have and love their own digital cameras.  Please you all..and I know you all have them because I see your fabulous pics all the time..can you give me any advice or reccomendations at all?!!

These are a few I am really interested in...oh and btw  what is the difference between the DSLR and a non DSLR camera??!

Ok so these 2 are the ones I am really interested in. The Nikon I have actually seen in person and the pics seemed to be good but it also took a lot of blurry movement pics..Is this normal?!!  I know of course a lot of bad pics are user error..oh yes I am gigantic error trust me!!  I do not know much about cameras just that I want them to take really great pics and I don't want to have to do too much or else I will lose interest in the camera really fast!!

Ok so there it is folks. Please help me find a new camera before we head out again on some more travels and end up AGAIN with no pics to show for it!!

Seriously Desperate!!!

Well, I will claim to know nothing about cameras, because I don't, but my the SLR means you have the capability to switch lenses, so you can interchange lenses as you wish. Did that help!?

Thanks for the info Sara!! That is more then I knew before. I wonder if I could figure out how to change a lense? LOL

I am NOT a camera geek, but wish I was!
I love the super compact cameras, so I can always have one with me. My best pictures always come from Sony cameras, but I've not yet had a chance to play with a Nikon. The Costco by me is selling a Nikon DSLR camera with the whole kit for like $800 (WOW - too rich for my blood!)
As far as the movement thing, I know a lot of nicer cameras come with a 'sport' setting to capture motion shots. For me, its all about the image stabilizer, which Sony does really really well.

Thanks Gaile!! Yes my last camera had the image stabilizer and I loved it. I seriously would just rebuy the camera that died if I weren't so mad at it right now!
