As I have mentioned many times in this forum, any entry level DSLR will be able to produce decent pictures when used within their limits. Have a look at the entry level cams offered by Nikon, Canon, Sony, Pentax, Olympus, Panasonic and Samsung. Compare their features and user friendliness and see which suits you best. Since you are the one using the cam, make sure you get something that suits you and you're comfortable with. Listen to your heart and not to the sales person or your friends. What your friends like may not do the same to you.
