Digital Camera

I'm considering getting a digital camera both because I have some events coming up that I'd like to photograph and because I work in a field where I can get more work if I have one. I want something basic, easy to use, and as cheap as possible while still being something that will last. Any recommendations or warnings? Thanks tons! :)
