Canon Digital Rebel

The main camera I use for my photographs is my Canon Digital Rebel.  This is a 6.3 MP Digital SLR (Single Lens Reflex) that is a couple of years old now, but I find it has nearly every feature I need.

I love using this camera because it fits my hand well, does fairly well in low light situations, and I enjoy playing with the Depth of Field that only an SLR can provide.  The nice thing about Canon SLR’s are because of the way they are designed, they can fit lenses from many other manufacturers including Leica, Carl Zeiss, and older Pentax and Nikon lenses which can be found on eBay very cheap.

I’ve taken my Canon SLR all over the place and I couldn’t be happier.  If you are looking into getting into photography, definitelyconsider getting a Digital SLR, even if you are tight on budget, see if you can find a used one.  Consumer super zoom cameras just cannot come close when it comes to Noise, Depth of Field (Probably the most important reason), focus speed, and lighting flexibility.  An SLR camera will also be able to grow with you as you progress.  Think of it more of an investment.  With digital SLR’s you can invest in higher quality lenses such as Canon L lenses that will last you for years, no matter how the camera bodies evolve.
