    A DSLR is only worth the money if you plan on really learning how to use it.  There are a lot of point in shoots that take pictures that are of equal quality.  The DSLR is, however, a more flexible camera that you can take a wider variety of pictures with.  But, you must learn how to do so.  If using auto setting all of the time, you may be better off with a point and shoot that has a nice zoom.

    I own a Canon Rebel T2i. They are worth the money if you really plan on using all the time and wanting professional looking pictures. Another great feature of some DSLR's is that they have 1080p video. But make sure you check if the DSLR you want does. The great thing about DSLR's are they have different lenses. You can swap out lenses and get better zoom or maybe even a wider angle. I recommend DSLR if you are really into what you want to do with it. If you aren't go with a digital camera just for practice than if you want to pursue in this kind of hobby you should get the DSLR. That is my opinion.

    If you ever used a flm-based SLR camera, you'll want the digital version. Saying point-and-shoot cameras take as-good pictures is like saying your disposable Kodak is as good as a Nikon SLR. The differences are just as great. But you do need to learn to use them. The various lens, filters, aperture, and shutter speeds work exactly as they to in the film versions, including the ability to vary the focal field depth.
    Don't get overly concerned by pixel counts. If the lens doesn't focus correctly, you can have twice the pixels and worse pictures. The ccd is of better quality in a DSLR and there are many accessories available to extend the usefulness of the camera. These include filters, slave flashes, various mounts, remotes, etc.
