DSLR great starter camera if you can't afford a Better one!

Summary: Replaced one I had. I have since upgraded to a 5D MKIII. This was a great camera and still is I use it in foul weather and such. I want to keep my 5D working in tip top shape as long as I can!
Summary: My dilemma: I bought a T3i for vacation, but my son will try to lay claim to it. My solution was to buy this body (with battery and charger) and use my existing lenses from my old film SLR. The old EF lenses are compatible with this camera! I really like it as well, but it's quite the upgrade from my old SLR and the string of point-and-shoots I've had since then. Pros: Super cheap for a DSLR It takes better pics at 6.3MP than my 12MP point-and-shoot that cost me 3x more.
Summary: For a simi-pro camra this is the best I have came across. Good photos, symple to use and good over all except battery life when taking mass emounts of photos, but that is why I have an extra one. If you can't afford the newest version this one is a good choice!
Summary: This camera has served me well in professional as well as hobbyist capacity. The ability to shoot in RAW format, shoot at a burst rate with no lag is awesome. Lens is same as Canon releases today on the XTi. I've used telephoto lens from Canon and it works great on this camera. I have noticed that compared to my friend's XTi, the DR requires more work from the user to get the same quality, specifically in full auto mode there is a difference.
Summary: I purchased this camera January 2005, my first digital SLR. This camera works great most of the time, does everything it is suppose to for the price I paid for. The few times it didn't work is in focusing. Even though I know the camera is in focus, but the Digital Rebel just wouldn't take the photo kept zooming in and out of focus. So I either 1) switch to manual mode or 2) turn the camera off and turn it back on again.
Summary: I had an Olympus 5MP point-n-shoot Camedia camera I was pretty happy with for portraits. I was annoyed w/ the fixed lens that prevented me from taking good photos of wildlife. I have hummingbird feeders in my backyard and unless you've had the opportunity to work with hummingbird families for years, the sweet, tiny animals are skittish and don't often pose for you when you get too close.
Summary: This really is a great camera and to really appreciate it you have to understand its target audience. It seems clear that Canon has aimed this camera primarily at novices. Its point and shoot are as simple as you will find on any consumer compact digicam. Its creative setting should offer enough control and flexibility to keep most intermediate and advance photographers happy. First though lets go over some of the complaints people are writing about the camera. 1).
Summary: After almost 5 years with this camera, I'm finally inclined to upgrade... But nothing below 40D is a real option. Here's why I like it so much: 1. It has upgradeable firmware. Doing this will allow you to use the hidden features of the camera and basically turn your 300D into 10D. 2. It has 2 separate screens - one LCD for viewing images and one LED for system information which is really useful . This feature is missing in 350, 400, etc. models. 3.
Summary: As most reviews say, this is a great digital SLR. The 420EX flash makes a huge difference in photo quality. With the 28-135 and the 420ex flash unit the camera is very heavy and I cannot see lugging it to Disney, you would want a smalller digital camera for that. [...
