I got my new camera today- I have been on a waiting list and it came in- great timing since Delaney will be here Thursday. I was debating between this one and a Sony 828- they are the same price but this won because it is a SLR (single lense reflex) and gives me the ability to switch lenses- I can buy a telephoto lens to get close pictures which I like to take. For more info on the camera visit Canon Rebel.
This camera is 6.3 megapixels, runs with 2 batteries (will take about 400 shots) and stores on a compact card. I will need to upgrade the lens and buy a flash but for now- this will work.
I can’t wait to start taking pictures- have to figure out how first (big manual)!
