Question by LadyLeatherneck: Need advice on digital camera?
Until recently I have been a die hard 35mm old school fan. Unfortunately, my good old Canon Rebel 35mm was stolen along with all my accessories to include my zoom lens.
I have decided to take the leap and get a digital camera with the hopes and expectations that it will give me the same gratification as my old film camera with instant results. I was looking at the Canon Digital Rebel XSi 12.2MP Digital SLR Camera (Black) + Canon 18-55mm IS Lens + Tamron 70-300mm Di LD Macro Lens package that is offered on amazon and was wondering if this is a relatively good start and also something that is an easy transition considering it is also a Canon . If anyone has any suggestions please feel free to send them this way. I am looking to stay under $ 1000.00 but do need and want a zoom lens to go with the camera.
Answer by Rohn
Canon EOS XSi is a great entry level DSLR camera. You should be able to purchase the kit and Tamrron zoom lens for under $ 1k.
I own a XSi. So far this is my favorite Canon camera that I have own.
