PowerShot Vs Rebel

So I am the owner of a Canon Powershot S3 IS. It is a really nice camera that my husband bought for me before we were even engaged (it was a christmas, birthday, dating anniversary gift). <3 

However .... I hate to say this ... After trying to use it on manual and practice apertures and things - I can't seem to take the kind of pictures I want to take with it. I am not sure if it is user error or if it is just that my camera is not capable of the things I want it to do.  I am thinking about asking for a DSLR for Christmas this year - a Canon Rebel looks amazing! 

What kind of camera do you use? Any tips on making sure I am using it to its full potential?

I don't know your camera but I just got a canon rebel for Christmas, It is a great camera if you go that route. To get to know my camera I started by learning some key photography terms if you will. I have been reading a lot of online stuff and I read through my manual. It really helped me use my camera better. Another thing I did was go to a local photo supply store and I got some free advice. If you have a Pro Photo Supply store near by take a trip there they are always willing to share their know-how. Also ck out www.digital-photography-school.com I got a lot of info that way. Hope that was helpful.
