What would you recomend as the best digital camera? I'm looking for a good camera that will take nice pictures, but I dont need anything really fancy. I'm a beginner photographer who doesn't know much about cameras.

There is no "Best" camera. It all depends on your needs and what you feel is more important. Sure, an DSLR will give you the best quality, but are you willing to carry such a big camera around (not to mention the price)? You will have to sacrifice certain things for others. Take a look at http://www.dpreview.com and check out the buying guide to compare a few camera side by side. Also take a look at their reviews and sample images to get a better idea.

I've recently bought a new camera, and after a lot of research, the Canon Powershot A610 seems to be the best one for my needs. A nice size and quick response, coupled with amazing picture quality and an even better price is what got me. I haven't been able to use it too much yet, but I'm really happy with it so far.
