There is a wide array of cameras out there. I shoot Nikon , but Canon is also very popular. What is quite important is the lens you get. A mediocre camera with a great lens will take better photos that a great camera with a mediocre lens. There are places that will let you rent cameras and lens to try out before you buy.

Exactly, I'm in the Canon camp but there is no substitute for quality lenses. Most DSLR cameras are capable of great images provided you have good glass in front of it. There is a company (don't remember who it is) that makes instructional DVD's for any camera made. I highly recommend one for the camera you decide on. It will teach you a lot about your particular camera. Maybe QuickPro camera dvd's or something like that.

Also look into Sony's line of DSLRs.

Ditto on the good glass comments. A mid level camera will take great pics with top quality glass. The Canon 7D series is a really good crop senor camera. Lots of good used stuff on Fred Miranda. Buy used and put the money you save towards the better glass. I shoot Canon exclusively and their L glass is good. Even the older used stuff. Good luck.
