I want something that would look more like a photographer. I saw that sony, canon, and nikon came out which new cameras what would be the better for a beginner photographer? and Why?

DSLR stands for "Digital Single Lens Reflex" which simply means it's a digital camera, and it uses one lens and a mirror to capture images. If you really want to know how it works, you can research it... but what it all boils down to is better quality images! Also, with a DSLR you can take off the lens and add different lenses for different types of photos. You can also manually control the exposure, focus, aperture, etc. If you're just transitioning from a point and shoot to a DSLR, I would recommend an entry-level DSLR. Something like the Canon Rebel XTi or the Nikon D60. These cameras are more affordable than other DSLRs and also offer a lot of automatic controls which makes getting used to a DSLR much easier!

I didn't know that owning a DSLR or any big and bulky camera will make anyone looks like a photographer! Anyway, yes, these days more companies are producing the lower end DSLRs. DSLR is short for Digital SLR. In fact, the prices for these lower-end DLSRs are rather competitive and much cheaper. You still have full manual control with added lenses and all. Browse the net for more information. Some brands/models are available in only in certain countries.
