Well after some thought, I decided to upgrade from a point and shoot to a dslr. I just got it today. First off, I chose canon because my experience with their other cameras was amazing. Over the years I used my parents canon camera. It's only 3mp but it fed my needs. Pic below. 2 Years ago I went from using this to my own Fujifilm Finepix Z20 10mp. I found it was very blurry with the slightest movement EVERY TIME and went back to the trusty canon. Now here I am today, I just purchased a Canon Rebel XSi. It also came with a 18-55mm lens. SO far this camera seems to be amazing, except for I wish the lens zoomed more as i'm going to china soon. I have no money for another lens though So my question to you is, how is this camera? Is it a good beginners camera? If you've had any past experience with it that would be great!
