It might sound strange, but DSLRs might turn out depreciating less than "point and shoot" cameras if only because those expensive lenses you simply must have can be moved ahead for use on more advanced cameras.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Buying a DSLR locks you into a brand, because Canon lenses don't fit on Nikon or Minolta cameras, or vice-versa. There's always a chance the manufacturers will introduce cameras that aren't backward compatible (it has happened in the past), but in general, the camera body is a small part of the investment in the DSLR world.
