Canon Digital Rebel 6.3 Mpix

I've been shopping for a digital camera for quite a while and I've more or less decided upon the Canon Digital Rebel 6.3 MP unit.

Pro: I don't have to replace my Telephoto and Wide angle lens since it's compatible with Eos stuff.

Con: Price

anyone have any experience with this unit?

thanks,
Graham

It's a very nice camera. The only problem is that the lense is really really cheap with only 3x zoom.

Also if you want to take nice indoor pictures you should invest in an external flash (300+ CAD or so).

Also don't forget that this camera is pretty big. It's not something you can fit in a pocket, and go on a date.

Thanks, Kir. I already have a Canon Flash as well as many lenseses and filters. It's actually lighter and smaller than my current EOS 650 Filmer.

I'm going for it tomorrow!

I think it great! I also have some other lenses of my own but I was reading a digital photo magazine after I got the cam and they were talking about how the lense that comes with it is really good, and I find it to be alright for my close up shots, so its not necessarily "really really cheap" and you can't expect a camera like this to come with a big telephoto lense....

Anyways, you'll love it

You've made a great choice! The pictures turned out good. See, I was gonna wait for the new canon model to come out, its a 8mp cam but it would be like the sony one where the lens would not be interchangable so this is a funner camera

Anyways, hope you enjoy it, the camera definetly makes taking pictures a lot more fun, I didn't enjoy it as much with my older point-and-shoot digital camera while I loved my 35mm slr, so now I have the best of both worlds.

Keep the pics comming if you decide to play around

Best buy sells it for 1500 now but if you look around in some asian places you can get it for 1500 with tax already included

wait, maybe they sell it for more, I don't remember anymore but I remember going to best buy and getting them to lower it to 1500 because I found it cheaper somewhere else. I paid 1500 for it though myself
