Canon Digital Rebel EOS XSI

Since I was 13 years old, 24 years ago, I have been in love with Canon and my Canon EOS Rebel XSI has continued that love affair. My first Canon was a Canon T-70 and it took me 9 months to save for that camera, it lasted me 17 years.
In January of 2009 I finally had the money to purchase another Canon and this time I went with a digital camera and man do I LOVE it.
The Rebel XSI is light weight and switching lenses is very simple. It uses a basic red or white dot for lining up and than simply twist to put on or take off. The large LCD screen allows me to see exactly what I just captured. The camera also has options to have the image displayed singly or have multiple images for proofing.
The camera is a 12 megapixel but it lets me change the resolution based on my needs. I always keep it at the 12 to achieve the clearest image I can. The camera has many different options that I haven't even touched upon. I can change many different settings. It has a self timer, multiple continuous shot for action, white balance control and more.
I did my research on prices before purchasing this camera. In the end I went with buydig.com. They seemed to have the best deal for this camera at that time. I purchased an additional lens, warranties on the body and the lens, and an accessory kit all for $1038.
I have taken my camera to many places and I never shoot less than 200 images when I go. I love having the option to take a large amount of images and not having to develop them which is costly. I can take them home and edit as I want.
I love my Canon EOS Rebel XSI and would tell everyone to get one!
