Are you thinking point and shoot or digital SLR?
I haven't owned a point and shoot in years, so I'll just tell you what I know about SLRs.
My first SLR was the Canon Rebel T3, and nowadays is a pretty affordable option (I think around 500 for the body and your basic lens). I think I read somewhere that you really don't need more than 12 megapixels in a camera, so anything more (I want to say the T3 is 15+) is gravy. The lenses you want depend on what you're going to shoot--the basic 18-55 that comes with the camera is great for your basic stuff. I also love my 55mm f 1.8 for portraits. You can do a little more research online to find out exactly what lenses you want after you know exactly what you want to shoot. Hope that helped a little!
