Great older entry-level dSLR for those wanting a quality camera with a smaller and lighter body.
12 May 2014
Summary: I bought this camera in spring 2011. I had been using point-and-shoot's for years and I wanted to get into amateur photography. I had considered older Canon and Nikon models such as the D70 but ultimately I went for the Canon because of the lower price.
Summary: I bought this camera a couple years ago and it is amazing. I'm impressed with every photo taken, the quality is amazing. And it's pretty much idiot proof on using it. I'm by no means a professional photographer and I barely do photos as a hobby.
Summary: a durable, solidly built camera that bridges the gap between a point and shoot and a dslr. So far, taking pictures of an object that isn't moving (dogs sleeping) and is indoors provided excellent results. Bought a used camera that included a memory card that still had pics from the previous owner.
Summary: When my Canon Rebel XT broke I went to have it repaired. The person suggested that I could go on Amazon and buy a new one for $100 more than the cost of the repair. When the camera arrived there was a little note that said if I had any problems to call the vendor directly.
Excerpt: Terrific camera. It is a pleasure to use. Results are stupendous. Very quick. Best bang for the buck. I find the build quality very good. It fits well in my medium sized hands. It feels plasticky at first, but it grows on you. It is built strongly. It ain't magnesium, but it is tough.
