Canon, Nikon and Pentax all make good entry level DSLRs.  There aren't really any "bad" DSLRs.

There are now a lot of alternatives interchangeable lens cameras to DSLRs, especially if you want something smaller.  Some examples are in roughly decreasing size order:

  • Sony SLT series and NEX series
  • Samsung NX series
  • Panasonic G and GF series, Olympus PEN series.
  • Nikon 1 series

and there are others from Fuji, Canon and Pentax.  You might want to start by going into a camera store and trying out a few cameras for size.
