The product is just as described and arrived very quick in great condition. Thanks to the highly reliable seller, Amazon.I got the Rebel in the beginning of this year, and have had nothing but positive experiences with it.

While it took me a while to get used to it, I’ve enjoyed it immensely. It’s very light (especially when compared to my 40D), and very reliable.

At the time I was debating between this and the XSi, I stuck with this because I felt the differences weren’t great enough to justify what was at the time a large price difference.

I have no regrets…I’ve taken many wonderful pictures with this, and highly recommend it. There are some things advertised (such as Live View) that are harder to come across than you’d think, so I’d advise you to read the manual if you do go ahead and buy this…unfortunately not everything will be intuitive!

That being said, most things were pretty simple to figure out, and I really love my Rebel!I spent weeks reading through both user and professional reviews and comparing it against similar 10 megapixel cameras, super zoom cameras and even 12 megapixel cameras and this one beat them all out hands down. Yes even the XSi of the same brand

Not only is the price right but this an ideal camera for those just starting out in the DSLR world like me. The controls and menus are simple enough that you can start taking pictures just about out of the box. If you are feeling adventurous and want to get into the creative side of the dial those aren’t all that hard to get a hang of either. Still this isn’t the best part.

The best part in my opinion is the spectacular image quality that comes out of an entry level DSLR. Even when you have to turn the ISO up the image doesn’t have much noise.

Sure it only has a 2.5 inch screen, a 7 point AF system and doesn’t shoot that fast in raw but at least in my opinion those downsides are negligible.I recently upgraded to the Canon Rebel XS from a Canon 35 mm camera, and I love it. The picture quality is amazing, and the camera works well with my 5 year old telephoto lens. I would highly recommend this camera for those who are just starting out, or would like to learn more about photography. It’s been my hobby for many years, and now that I have a digital camera I can experiment more with the manual settings (experimenting with a film camera can get quite expensive!).

My only objection is the live view mode – it only works when you are in the creative modes, not the automatic settings. This is not a huge deal, as you just look through the view finder. I do like to see on the LCD screen the picture as I’m getting ready to take it, but again, this is minor in comparison to all the wonderful features of this camera!This camera has all the bells and whistles for a DSLR beginner. I am extremely happy with it. If you are looking for the best value for entry level DSLR, then this is not the best value. Nikon and Olympus have better deals. But I want to have the huge selections of lens. Besides, I am pretty comfortable with the controls of my two Canon point-and-shoot cameras. The only complaint I have is the layout of the auto focus points. It has seven. Five of them are on the middle horizontal line. The sixth one is right above the center, and the seventh one below the center. If you want to focus roughly around the centers of four quadrants, then you have to move your camera to compose your picture after you focus using one of the focus points. This is quite inconvenient and causes incorrect focusing if the subject is close to you. XSi has nine auto focus points nicely laid out. But it costs you about two hundred dollars more.
