I'm looking to buy a new digital camera. I just want to take pictures for the web mostly. So nothing too much over a normal piece of paper size wise. I want very high detailed pictures and would like to be able to keep the shutter open for a small amount of time.
Also I know absolutely nothing about digital cameras so what are the most important things that I should look for?
I want to spend anywhere from $500 to $800, and am kind of leaning toward Canon or Nikon. Anyone have any suggestions??

For that kind of money, I'd probably lean towards one of the Nikon Coolpix. You can pick up a good condition used D100 as low as $800 these days, but then you're gonna spend at least another 2, 3, 4 or more times that amount in lenses, tripod, filters, etc.

Some of the Canon DSLRs are nice, as are Nikons (I use Nikon myself), and which you go for all depends on your needs as a photographer.

As far as P&S goes, I'd look at just Nikon & Fuji.
