I tend to buy cannon, because they are cheaper, but Nikon is better.

Ooh.. you're going to start a war between the Nikon lovers and the Canon lovers... :O

It depends on what type of camera you're getting:

If you're getting a typical point-and-shoot digital camera, I suggest Canon. They're much simpler to use, and have an easy to understand interface.

If you're getting a single lens reflex (SLR), there are several things you have to notice. SLR's are more of a "feel" camera than anything else, because it's actually a matter of taste. It's true that most Canons are cheaper than Nikons in the same class level, but it's best you get a feel for what camera works with you.

If you're observant enough, you'll realize that most of the functions on each of these cameras are exact opposites! For example, the lens mount (F-mount) for the Nikon attaches counter-clockwise (in reference to the lens), while the Canon mount attaches clockwise. The zoom ring for canon is wide to tele counter-clockwise (in reference to the barrel), while Nikon is clockwise.

If the shooting mode dials (digi-vari modes) for the Nikon are found on the left of the body (in reference to holding position), the Canon's is on the right, and so on.

Try holding one, and see for yourself which "fits" you. In my case, the Canon feels small, and a bit awkward. The Nikon has a more solid grip, is made of more durable material than most canons, and works well with my needs. :)

Current SLR models you might want to consider:

Canon ~ 350D (Digital Rebel XT) (8MP), 400D (Digital Rebel XTi) (10.1MP)
Nikon ~ D40 (6MP), D40X (10MP)

^ Fuji isn't all that bad... especially since they use the Nikon F-mount. In most cases, Fuji reproduces skin tones better than most Canons or Nikons, which makes it a preference for people who take people as their main subject (i.e. wedding photographers).

The new Fuji Finepix Pro S5 is a very interesting camera that I might be willing to purchase... but since it utilizes the exact same body as the Nikon D200, I still lean towards the D200. But these are cameras that are well beyond the range of any typical consumer...

Nikon D200


EDIT:
If it's an issue of quality, it really depends on the subject that you prefer to take. Canon cameras are known to be more sensitive on the Blues, which makes them excellent landscape/nature cameras.

Nikons have a red/green bias, which makes them excellent for close-up portraiture photography, and studio/indoor photography.

But I'm talking on the level of SLRs here. If it's point and shoots, Nikon probably wins in terms of quality. I dislike the ISO noise of Canon point and shoots, even at 200 ISO... However, Canon point and shoots still gain many points for it's user-friendly interface. Let's say I'd probably take more pictures for fun with a canon, as I would take more beautiful pictures with a Nikon point and shoot.
