I'll respectfully disagree with those who suggest buying cheap with the idea of replacing later. Do your research and know what you want, otherwise you are wasting money on something you know is not going to serve you for a long time.

This. Any decent camera purchased today should last 5-10 years at least. Don't waste money buying something that isn't entirely what you want.

I can't disagree with the principle.

I just wonder how someone with limited experience can effectively research the camera they need without actually using a camera.

I am a great believer in learning from mistakes.  Buying an inexpensive camera - when one has limited experience - will almost certainly be a mistake.  It will also be a great learning experience.
