Entry level DSLRs are tiny, lightweight and perfect for experimenting more with photography. They have more adjustable settings and take better quality photos. Plus you can experiment with all sorts of lenses when using a DSLRthere's been a ton of these. do a search.
get a canon g12 or something small. not a dslr. the market is rapidly moving away from entry level DSLRs to raw shooting compact cameras. they offer all the versatility of traditional DSLRs only in a much more compact form.
trust me you don't really want to be carrying around a clunky DSLR on trips and sightseeing etc.
in 10, 20 years i can see people dropping the entry level stuff altogether as phones will have much better cameras.
fwiw you can control aperture and shutter speed on an iphone. the lens is pretty wide at f/2.2 and image quality is decent.
a camera is whatever. not the most important decision to make. new shit always coming in. you should prolly just take a photography class and learn that way. learning black and white photography and manually developing pictures will help you understand light, textures, and what exactly you need your camera to do to take the picture you want.
if I had money I'd go with a sony nex-7 or wait for the fuji x-10. otherwise canon s95 and panasonic lx5 for pocketable cameras. g12 for greater versatility in a much more comfortable body
