Wait until boxing day, or maybe before then they will probably have the Canon Rebel XT 18-55 kit on sale. A few weeks ago they had it for like 550 bucks. It's a terrific camera to get started with. They currently have the XTi kit for 869, and it's worth the $ if you can afford it. But photo quality wise, you're not really gaining jack.

I'm a Canon fanboy (had an SD500, 20D, now have SD600, 30D and one of their little camcorders) but the Nikons are probably fine. They use CCD sensors which are inferior technology (the point and shoot compacts use these) but whatever, they work.
