    im looking at the new CANON 'REBEL TI'

    it looks pretty good, i'm not exactly sure what is good and what's not, and i'm not looking for the top of the line stuff, or professional, just a good solid 35 mm camera, im going to need it for photog class as well, but i've been meaning to get more into photography, etc etc.

    anyone have some suggestions for these types of cameras? or about the REBEL TI???

    Get yourself an older model one. 1 it will save dough 2 they are heavy which gives stability in a shot 3 if it gets stolen ytou can replace it easy. I can`t remember the camera my mum has but it is rocking. She has had it for about 30 years or so it is a Japanese model............Canon I think one of the most copied designs for years. But she has the original brand and model..........

    I'm not sure if that's the current model of Rebel, but from what I've heard it's a good line of cameras. When I got my camera the Rebel 2000 was Canon's high end camera, and I heard some pretty good things about it. Elan 7e is my poison of choice. Just depends on how much you want to spend.

    ive definetly been wanting a gl1 for awhile. i think i may go for the gl2 because i hear they fixed alot of the glitches of the first gl. OR i may go for the dcr-vx 2000 from sony. THAT shit is the shit. beg borrow or steal my friends. beg borrow or steal.



    as far as still's, if your buying something new, stick with either canon or nikon. or a major brand at least...(pentax, minolta...). the rebel should be fine for a beginner.

    aw bitch. tell me why i just sold a 35mm camera to cash converters for like $25...i totally got bit in the ass with that deal, just the short 'telescope' was worth $25, that's not including the big one and the camera itself...heh its ok though, the camera was pretty fucked up anyways. i doubt it even worked ;P

    thanks for your input fellas, much appreciated. and yes, i'm getting this camera for personal use, but i mainly want it for stills, and like photographic images, like being able to blur the background but keep the main image in focus, that stuff is pretty cool, i don't know all the technical terms and such, but i'm highly interested in learning.

    also, could someone explain the bare minumum stuff i need, like lenses and ummm flashes and exposures and all the technical stuff, could you break it down for me? much appreciated..
