KcinWell I was looking at a dslr like the Nikon d5200 but I'm not sure if it's going to be tough to carry around or not. Sorry I don't know much about anything :/
boomie1312_1You could pick up a T2i pretty cheap and get a few quality lenses, else I would probably go the point and shoot route.
michael_bcDon't get a t2i for photography. Don't get any Canon t something i.
Buy the other guy's Nikon D3100 and buy a Nikon 35mm f/1.8G lens with it and you'll be quite sweet.
If you need smaller I'd seriously look into that new Olympus E-M10 with pancake zoom lens. Perhaps get a Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 lens with it.
Otherwise the Sony RX100 and RX10 are pretty sweet cameras, as are the different Fuji models.
cydwhitt2i is good, I have had my eye on something like this: http://www.newschoolers.com/forum/thread/778918/FS--Fuji-X10----200 for a travel camera it could be dope. go for a higher end point and shoot or compact if you aren't going to be a serious photographer. You don't need a DSLR to take good photos, you just need to have a decent camera with you when you see great photos happen. Feel free to hit me up with any other camera questions.
