Yes I have one they can be very complicated mine is fantastic its a Nikon D700 costs nearly 2,000 & if you got one you would take poor pictures with it.
My son has a Nikon D40 camera its cheap second hand & takes great photos, its a beginners camera just set it to auto & away you go.

If you're buying a digital camera body with interchangeable lenses, you can compare camera bodies at Most camera bodies themselves do pretty much the same things. Once you decide on a camera body, the lens is the real key (or lenses). That's where you want to put your money--in quality lenses.

IMO you can't go wrong with Canon or Nikon. As stve says, if you're a beginner it's best to go for the bottom end of the price range. Mind you even the top models have an Auto function.
Also I concur with gogreen. The glass is crucial. You can get away with a good lens on a beginners body but you would be wasting your time putting a cheap lens on any camera.
I suggest you do some research before buying, both online and in review magazines.
I have a Canon 40D (now superseded by the 60D) and Canon lenses and I'm very happy with it. This camera is at the top end of the "consumer" range.
"Pro" cameras tend to have "full frame" sensors. They are the same size as a 35mm film frame. This gives greater quality with the same number of pixels as a APS-C sensor (as found on consumer cameras) purely because it is bigger.
The other thing you pay your thousands for is an extremely sturdy body, weatherproofing etc., which is suited to the many conditions photojournalists etc have to face.
Don't get hung up on how many megapixels a model has. More is not necessarily better.
Basically-read the reviews in your price range and then go in a shop and handle the camera.

Cheers, John:)

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Steve Ballmer Signature (jealous???)

I concur. Canon and Nikon are your best bets. The lineup of lenses and accessories for either brand is impressive and easy to find, and that's important. There are many manufacturers making accessories for Nikon and Canon.

I purchased the entry-level Canon Rebel XS (D1000 outside USA) two years ago, and they are still selling it new for the same price I paid: about $500 US. That's about as low as you can go to get your feet wet with a new DSLR. Best of all, if you get serious, you can purchase an expensive lens for it and dramatically improve your photos.

The more expensive cameras will give you extras like a full-frame sensor, magnesium bodies as opposed to plastic, and will be sealed better to keep out dust and moisture. The pro-level cameras feel like you drive nails with them.

Very true but for a beginner a expensive lens would be a waste of money, there are some good kit lenses & one of the best lenses for Canon, Nikon, Sony, Pentax etc...
is also one of the cheapest the 50 mm F1.8.
