Canon Digital Rebel XTi 10.1MP Digital SLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens

A couple of years ago, I decided to step up from point and shoot cameras and looked into taking a photography class and getting a “real” camera. This is the camera I purchased. Absolutely adore it. I’ve taken more pictures in the past 2 years than I ever have.

The auto modes are fantastic (I realize this is an older model, one day perhaps I can upgrade), but even more important – it’s easy to switch to manual as well. This is a great camera to learn on it and I’ve managed to take some really great photographs with it.

I’m no professional. I don’t want to be a professional. I just like to tinker. This intro priced camera does all of that and more. I won’t get into the technical side of it, enough Amazon reviewers have done that and you can certainly read the product description, but if you are looking to get into photography and need a starter camera, this is the one I would recommend.

If I had to do it all over again, I would probably choose to not get the kit lens and purchase one locally where I can play with it. I quickly replaced the kit lens with a Tamaron I fell in love with. But lenses are always such a personal thing to me.
