When it comes to something like cameras that I don't know about, I like to browse a Target/Wal-Mart type store in person, also browse a Best Buy/Circuit City type store in person, then also browse eBay. I go to Wal-Mart/Target to get an idea of best price, The big electronic stores for an idea of what is out there at any cost, and then eBay to get an idea of what they are going for used, and what some of the other less known brands are going for (even if I don't buy from there). You'll get to know a decent slice of what's out there. If you are wanting to go higher priced, you could also go to a professional camera shop. There, you'll get fantastic advice, and see more of the high end equipment, but you'll also pay alot for it... I personally don't see it being worth it, but there are people that really think it is better... it probably is better (I'm just a cheap skate)!
Once you think you've found a make and model you like, do some searching on epinions.com. You might have to enter a slightly different model number (5590 rather than 5595), but it's a way to get some public feedback.
