I'm thinking it's time for a new camera. I have a 35mm Minolta SLR that I like, but I think it's time I make the jump to digital. My girlfriend has a point-and-shoot digital, and I can't stand it.
I don't know much about cameras, so I guess I would be looking for something somewhat basic. Maybe in the $500-700 range. I was looking at B&H today, and there are so many to choose from, can some of you more experienced photogs point me in the right direction? What features are absolutely necessary and what are some that might be considered frivolous? Are there any that would work with older Minolta lenses? How many mega-pixels are too few?

There's so many on there I could link to, but I won't. So what do you all think? Thanks!
