I don't have a camera and take all photos on my Iphone The poor quality is starting to annoy me...DS is blurry in most photos because he moves too quickly for it and not a lot turn out well. I really enjoy taking photos but I kind of need a camera to do that
I have spoken with a couple of people and they mentioned a DSLR type of camera? (or was it SLR?). Nikon? Canon?
Can anyone recommend a GOOD camera? I don't need an amazing, top of the range one, but I don't want a shyte one either.

I have a DSLR (SLR is the same thing, the D stands for digital), it's bottom end for a DSLR and cost DH $600-$700ish with two lenses included. It's the Canon 550D and apparently they're even cheaper now.
It's great for what I need it for: taking photos of my children and the occasional interesting photo, plus learning how to get more out of it has been easy and fun.

When we were looking for a camera the sales rep said any SLR camera no matter the price is better than the most expensive of the digital range.
We bought a nikon D3100 and love it

Entry level dslr with a twin lens kit would suit perfectly, what will be a big change is lugging it around with you compared to camera phone which u can put in a pocket.
Im a canon girl, so i'd agree with blissedouts reccomendation with the 550D.

I've just seen the announcement of the new entry level Pentax. Fully weather sealed, and much better specs than my k-7.
If I was looking to buy I'd probably hold out for that, but I do love my Pentax

I have an older model DSLR (Digital single lens reflex) a Canon 450D and it suits me fine. I got a twin lens kit and I wish I'd done some more research and bought a better lense. I use my nifty fifty all the time.
I do think they (DSLR's) are much of a muchness if you're using them on an auto setting.

Though I will say if you're not into learning more about photography etc buying a DSLR might be a waste. There are a lot of great compact cameras on the market that take awesome pics and are small enough to fit in handbag etc. look for high number megapixels and a good metering system. In addition to my DSLR I have a compact in my handbag to take random pics when I want to.

Eeeek canon!! No...Nikon for sure!
The best entry level DSLR is the D5100. Or even a nikon 1. DH has a LOT of cameras most are nikons the only ones that aren't are his vintage collectables.
Normally I'd say Canon are pretty good too but they have released a shocking 2012 camera range.
