|Canon EOS Rebel XS|
My brother gave my little sister an older Rebel model that I am familiar with using because I like playing with it whenever I see it. It's pretty user-friendly, although I am not an expert by any means. Seemed like it would be fairly easy to learn. This is, after all, for a hobby and it should be fun.
I couldn't help but notice the low price tag. I saw it online for at least $100 more.
I asked the gentleman behind the counter about it, and the one I was stalking was the last one left (the display one). Not only that.... he could give me an additional 10 percent off of the display camera. I called Greg and he didn't have an opinion over it (that's a good thing). I called my brother and he said that was a perfect starter DSLR and the price was incredible.
I walked away with that baby.
We just got our tax return in, so that's how I'm justifying it financially. And since I got a cool new gadget, Greg should be able to get a cool new gadget. Yay for both of us!
When I got home later, I automatically started playing with my new Rebel. Here are a few photos. Yeah, keep in mind-- first day with the camera! I know some photos aren't super clear, but I am a beginner!
