Camera Considerations

We are in the middle of an electronics shopping spree. We said that when we sold our house, we would buy some updated electronics...actually just some that actually worked. So, we have now bought a laptop (HP DV5220 Notebook) and a videocamera (Sony DCR-HC26 Mini-DV Handycam) in the past week. As with all shopping, it's kind of fun, but kind of a pain in my booty...except for shopping for the kids...that's always fun to me. Anyhow, just wanted to ask for any advice you might want to give:

We are now in the market for a new camera...digital one...a good-quality one. I personally love the Canon Rebel, but Joel likes the kind that you can just put in your pocket. You know my love for pictures. And, I would love to really get good at taking pictures, esp. of the kids...and then also, looking ahead, of the missions activities we are involved in in the future.

What are your thoughts? Anyone just love their camera? Please, give us all the input you can. I want to hear about all kinds of cameras so that we can make a good decision. Thanks.

Ah!! Electronic shopping! That sounds like fun if you actually know your electronics. I, however, am not that kind of person at all. I was blown away by the fact that you were bron on May 17th. Know why? 'CAUSE THATS MY BIRTHDAY, TOO!

I got a Nicon D50 for Christmas last year. I like it. The Rebel is lighter to carry and both have extra lenses you can get to zoom. That is one big advantage over the point and shoot kind. Although they are bulking in comparison. Hope that is helpful.
Good Luck!
