OK HO Experts...I need to upgrade from my old Kodak and get a nice new digital SLR camera, one that is capable of good night shots. I don't want anything to complicated or fancy but can handle one with interchangeable lenses (such as a wide angle). I wish to keep my purchase in the range of $400-600. My Kodak sucked at niGht shots, maybe because it did not allow for long enough exposure. My new one neesd to be reliable, efficient, good quality photos, etc.
What say ye?

Well, the thing here is that the SLR itself is secondary to the lens you get for night shooting...and to that end, I have to ask, what exactly are you going to be shooting at night? Either way you're going to need a fast (larger aperture, able to allow more light in allowing for fast shutter speeds in lower light situations) lens, it's just a matter of the focal length. Typically all fast lenses tend to be as expensive or even vastly more expensive then the bodies they attach to.

I absolutely love my Panasonic Lumix (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/573592-REG/Panasonic_DMC_LX3K_Lumix_DMC_LX3_Digital_Camera.ht ml) camera. It has a leica lens, which takes amazing pictures. I get the best contrast/color photos with this camera, even in limited lighting. There are other Lumix cameras that have much better zoom capability (the LX3 has limited zoom), but they compromise overall picture quality (though still good).
Who's On 1st

Like what The Wedge said, It depends on what you are wanting to do with the camera!
I have a Canon EOS 50D DSLR and have a different type of lenses. This is the second in the series that I have owned, I like these very much. I have posted photos in the Minor section many times from the Baysox. ( both day time and nighttime) check them out if you want!
I also have posted photos on Flickr.com (BaysoxFan)
