    Default Need Camera Advice?

    Hi everyone,

    I want to get a camera for DH for Christmas. I also want to sign him up for lessons at the local college.

    Any suggestions? I was thinking a DSLR. He likes the Canon Rebels I believe.

    Thanks!

    It really depends on what he wants to do with it. As a beginner, 3 years ago I chose the Rebel Xt because it was a good beginner DSLR for me and allowed me some growth with different lenses. I'm still happy with it. I'd reccommend checking out this link for some reviews and comparisons. http://www.dpreview.com/ Good luck!!

    I have the Rebel XTi and it's a great camera. Does he WANT a DSLR? I'm guessing yes because you said he likes the Rebel. Anyhow, I have it and I really like it.

    I just want to second going to www.dbpreview.com ... it's a great site and allows you to compare specific models side by side.

    good luck!

    I think you should research, and then go and test them out. Pick them up and see how they feel. I honestly thought I wanted the Canon, but then I picked up the Nikon and I just knew!
