Here's one other thing to consider that I haven't seen mentioned. Each style camera has its pros and cons. Point and shoots are great to keep in a pocket just in case. However, they are severely limited in the distance they can take a picture. The typical lense interchangeable dslrs are bigger but the reach out and touch distance is much much greater.

For example. On the Fantasy Maiden, I had both my Sea life point and shoot and my Nikon D3000. Standing at Margaritraville, with both the Magic and Fantasy tied to the pier in Cozumel, I used my Nikon and got really detailed pictures of the 2 side by side. Prob about 1/2 mile. For giggles I took out my Sea life and it didn't come anywhere near what the DSLR did. The overall photo quality itself as far as defects were roughly the same however more detail was avail from the Nikon. And that was with a 200 mm lense. The 300 mm lense would have been even more detailed. The other advantage is that along with what other said is that you can get different lenses for different things and settings.

What I would do is look hard at what you want the camera to do, with what budget and make a decision from there.
