If you don't feel comfortable with the camera you're using, then it's more likely you're not going to be comfortable with the results. One of the major reasons why I prefer Nikons are the ergonomics of the camera and how it feels in my hand. I personally wouldn't buy a DSLR without some sort of rubber grip already built-in. Yes, you can probably find an aftermarket grip, but that's just extra money that you could've spent on a camera that already had it to begin with.
    Damn you're quick!

    Yeah, you make great points. My g/f tried each one out too and said even though it's basically the same body, she thought the XSi (with the grip) felt 10x better.

    Also you could add on the extra battery grip which also will help for holding and the additional fact of having extra battery capability.

    As u see from pic it attaches to the base of the camera.

    Thanks for the link. I heard those were a good investment.

    I don't have the cash for that right now though. Just getting the XSi is going to stretch my budget a bit.

    I do have a birthday coming up in a couple months though so I may ask for one then, or perhaps a lens.

    Thanks again for all the help!

    DTR,
    I started out my DSLR move with an ebay purchase of a used Sony a100-K, with the box-stock lens, and an additional 75-300 f/5.4 lens. I think I paid $200 for the camera, lenses, bag, batteries, charger, lens cleaner kit, and a 2GB memory stick.

    I've never shot in RAW yet, usually in jpg, since I still have no clue what I'm doing with the camera, yet, but overall, it's a great learner-onner
    It is a bit on the brick-heavy side, but takes some very good photos, in hands other than mine. every once in awhile, I'll screw up and get an awesome shot, but it's quite rare. I've just recently picked it up again, and started to learn more about taking pictures, with settings OTHER than "auto" modes..

    I could sell it, I'm sure, and get my $200 back out of it, when I'm ready to step up to a better piece. Keep that in mind, as well.

    So which camera did you decide to buy?

    I am in the same boat but I am looking at the Cannon Rebel TI and Nikon D5000.

    Choices choices.

    I'm looking for a DSLR now and I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations based on the current market?

    I went with the nikon d5000. It is a good camera in my opinion. I am still learning it though.
