I decided to make my own thread here instead of continueing the discussion about what camera would be good for me in sticks thread, it was getting a little off topic of what he posted. From some posts on here, and some more info that I have read my intrest in the SD9 has gone down hill, so I am still looking. What I want is a digital camera that can change lenses, and is mainly to completly manual controls. I mainly shoot sports, such as biking, and skate boarding, I also shoot alot of wildlife. So I assume I will need a camera that can take pictures really fast. My budget is around 1000 can for a body, even that is a lil steep but still in range. I would prefer to get a package for 1000 canadian but I dont know if thats possible. I'm leaning towards the rebel right now. Thanks to anyone who helps me out!
