    I'm an amateur photographer who's dabbled with 35mm and medium formats as well as darkroom use. I've always preferred using film over digital cameras (even though I work with video for a living). I've recently realized the positive side to using digital cameras and would love to purchase a good digital SLR. Has anyone ever used the Canon EOS Rebel? Are there any models you would suggest. My budget is $1000 and under.

    I got one right after Turkey Day. I find it to be a good camera. If you lens to match the mount, the I would just get the body and not the kit. Course you have to buy some memory, so you might want to figure that into your calucations.

    I have a digital rebel. I love it. You can see some of my photos here.

    As far as price, yeah it's under $1000, but you will need lots of memory, especially if you are shooting in RAW. I bought the rebel, a 512mb CF card, a 1g CF card, an extra battery, the kit lens and a 50mm f/1.8 II prime lens, for about $1500.

    You don't necessarily have to buy a new battery to start, but you do need memory, and I wouldn't go with any less than a 256mb card. It fills up quick.

    There are some limitations, such as 1/200sec max flash sync shutter, but I've found that for what I do, the camera is great.
