Take pro pictures with pro gear without paying pro prices.
I did a bit of looking around and found that most places sell the Canon EOS Rebel T2i with this lense for the regular Amazon Canada price of $699.99, or thereabouts. This sale saves you $100 and gets you this camera for only $599.99!
I'm going to be straight up honest with you fine people because I love you very, very much. I know almost nothing about photography. I've picked up some stuff from photographers I know but I'm not overly knowledgeable. One thing I do know is that when Canon released it's Digital Rebel back in 2003 (I feel old...), everyone went banana sandwich over it. It was the first sub-$1000 DSLR. Since then camera people the world over have been in love with Canon DSLRs. I prefer Nikon, but I have no reason to prefer Nikon so you can ignore me completely.
These are the vitals on the Canon EOS Rebel T2i camera:
- 18.0-megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor; DIGIC 4 image processor for high image quality and speed
- Kit includes 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens
- ISO 100-6400 (expandable to 12800) for shooting from bright to dim light; enhanced 63-zone, Dual-layer metering system
- Improved EOS Movie mode with manual exposure control and expanded recording 1920 x 1080 (Full HD)
- Wide 3.0-inch Clear View LCD monitor; dedicated Live View/Movie shooting button
Editor's Note: This is a great camera for those wanting to wade into the DSLR pool of photography. Most of the lenses that you can buy for it will work pro DSLRs as well (check packaging) so rather than replace everything down the road when you want to get more serious, you could simply replace the camera body. I highly recommend this camera.
