Its a good start for a newbie, do more research on other brands though, you will find choices better than this, like Pentax Kx and Kr, Nikon D3100 or Sony A33, A55 or within Canon itself, eg. 550D
once u have master the needs, u can upgrade to a 60D or 7D or 5D mkII

5D MKII,1000D,16-35mm f/2.8 L USMII,75-300mm,18-55mm,EF 50mm f/1.8 II,EF 85mm f/1.8 USM
I guess within your budget for the body just get the best you can afford so that you need not have to consider upgrading if you need better specs in the near future.
When I started out this hobby in dec 09 I was considering this and 500D and I thought I should spend more to get 500D as it has better specs like ISO etc. Now I am struggling a little with 500D's ISO performance and luckily I didn't get 1000D that time.
Lens, again depends on your budget. 18-55 kit lens is a good one for starter but of course there will be people encouraging you to get a better lens right from the start such as tamron 17-50 etc.
its got the very basic features to take a decent photo, good for a start
it's a good basic cam. i had one but outgrew it in a year.
you can at least invest in lenses while you learn the basics.
is using a digital camera that works ...
Great pictures have been shot with almost every model of cameras. Just get one within your budget and start shooting (you may want to read up the stickies http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=787393).
No. Go get Canon EOS 5D Mk2.
I'm kidding. I think its worthwhile lah. Nothing much to lose or depreciate if u in the end decide not to continue with photography.
My advice first is to determine what kind of camera you want.
do you want it to fit in your pocket?
then go for Canon S95 or G12
do you want a DSLR?
then go for Canon 550D, Nikon D7000
do you have enough budget?
if not then go for Nikon D3100 a little cheaper
If money is no object then go for the high end Nikons and Canons
not sure yet whether you want sa DSLR?
go for a bridge camera with manual controls and megazoom
like the fujifilm s1800 very cheap but with manual controls try it out if you dont like sell it off
not sure about prices?
check out this link
by the way i'm not connected to them but their website will give you an idea of current prices
how could this be cold truth? how did you gauge the lack of skill are you really sure that you are that good?
regardless of how the question may sound to you there was no need for the personal attack
we were all newbies at one time...
dun anyhow wave flag and be champion...
my advice to TS, are u sure ur ready to go into photography yet?
if u really wanna learn, start with film photography. the lack of the ability to see the shot immediately, will force u to consider the conditions more critically before u make that shot. this is probably one of the fastest learnign methods i have been through and within a month u can see obvious improvements, provided u do take time to think and understand the concepts behind.
then, u consider going digital to understand how things work, and continue brushing ur skills. 1000d is more than enough.
