    Welcome to CS
    Take your time to choose your camera. There are lots of brands & models to choose from.
    1st decide what area of photography you are interested in. Then decide if you are the type that don't mind hanging a DSLR on your neck or those that like to slip it in the pocket. So size & weight matters.
    Go around the shops & have a feel of the cameras & see if it fits your hands nicely & check out the features & functions. Also check out our very own clubsnap's forums on the different models in their respective threads.
    Most important is to do your homework 1st before taking the plunge
    Take the shot!

    Since I am currently still a Student, money is a problem for me eventhough i have been working the past few months so that is why my choice of cameras is limited as my budget is only around $300 - $350

    If you are not in a hurry, save up more. Don't buy just for the sake of buying & because my friends have them so I must have one also & then regret later. Spend wisely

    Welcome to CS

    Agree with madmartian. Since you have a limited budget which translates into limited choices, why don't you wait a little longer? Do more homework on the options available and at the same time save more money to open up new options.

    Cheers
