Summary: As a new sportswriter, I needed a camera that could freeze the action, but also wanted a camera that would allow me to be creative. The Canon SL1 not only fits the bill perfectly, it is light enough so that you can shoot all day without tiring. Worth every penny.
Summary: This is my 4th Canon digital SLR. I am very happy with it and especially with its small size and weight! It will accept the Canon family of lenses and accessories. Excellent photos, especially when shooting in RAW.
Summary: This is a great camera with a great default lens. I bought a mini fold-out trippod which is really easy to carry around as well (it's basically camping tent poles and fold really easily). This thing made my recent trip to Iceland SO much better. 30 second exposures of the northern lights...beautiful pictures. The body is smaller than most DSLR cameras, making it more travel friendly as well. But it still has all the features of the full-sized ones, apparently.
