Canon EOS Rebel T1i


Finally gave in and bought myself a DSLR camera.

The two main companies with large market shares are Canon and Nikon. I decided to go with Canon mainly because of two reasons. Reason one was that my friends have Canon DSLR cameras too so we can share lenses, and reason two was because it was on sale. ^^;

Ordered it on Amazon where they have a large rebate when you purchase it with a photo printer – also no sales tax for CA and 2-day free shipping with Amazon Prime.

Looking forward to playing around with it this weekend!

    Great choice..! Canon is seriously the brand to go in terms of digital cameras of any level. They have just about the truest colours you can get. Being able to share nice lenses is an asset too…\o/

    Interesting, thank you for this post. I have been looking to buy a new digital camera (still using a 6 year old 4MP camera) and this is very helpful. Once I get the money, I will have to look more into Canons.

    I had exactly the same trouble choosing between brands earlier this year, but in the end I went for Canon (1000D) as well because in the end, Canon lenses are way cheaper than Nikon’s. And most people I know use Canons too so I can always ask them for advice.

    Make sure to get a 1.8 50mm lens (or even 1.4 but expensive)!

    @gordon: Thanks! XD

    @polymetrica: Oh really, makes me glad I got a Canon. Can’t wait to see how its photos turn out!

    @Brett: Definitely, the Nikon I was looking into (Nikon D90) was priced way higher, but I guess it wasn’t on sale. =/

    @nekosasu: Yay, so many fellow Canon owners. I also heard that Canon lenses cost way less than Nikon ones, so that’s good. As for more lenses, I think I’ll hold off for a bit to replenish my funds. ^^;

    @Micchi: Me too!

    Yup, way better than my ultra-portable so far. All the photos with the watermark were taken with it.
