Subject: I started digital with the Rebel XT. Loved it, but I was coming from using a Hasselblad prior to that, so anything else was going to be a walk in the park. I would totally consider a Canon used for a starter camera if I had a choice, you may also want to check into an inexpensive Nikon, great quality without the 'reddish' you sometimes get with Canon. The image stabilizer is special lenses, although I do think most digital cameras have some type of anti-shake settings/features now. I use a Canon 40D with Image stabilizer lenses all around for my primary camera and love the results. Make sure you also know about how to reduce that shaky effect with the proper settings on your camera, don't use auto settings, adjust them manually. Auto settings should never have been put on cameras. jmo Good Luck.
In reply to: 's message, "Camera question: I really need a new camera and would like to invest in a Canon Rebel XI (everyone raves about those, lol) but my budget is $500 or under - so a GOOD "used" one is fine to start with, I don't need a $1,000 camera, lol. However, is the "Image stabilizer" a setting within the camera itself or is this something you need to purchase separately? Like a lens, etc? Also what are some good XI models to look into? They don't need to be newer ones, even older ones are fine. Thanks!" on 20:30:24 05/31/10 Mon
