Buy a Lomo LC-A plus.
Not digital, but super rad, small, and unpredictable in the best way. ISO adjustable to 1600, hotshoe for flash, etc. You can totally set it up to the cool blurry background with clear foreground thing. It's the only camera I use, and after using bigger/more complex/expensive digital AND film cameras, it's the best thing in the world.
Only thing to reconcile is that it's kind of expensive to use- due to it's unpredictable nature and simple focusing technology, every roll is kind of a crap shoot. I just take lots of pictures, pay close attn to the light and distance etc, and I get some pretty incredible results.
