    Ok, now that I realized that my desired Canon Rebel XSI is a bit out of my price range, what would be a good DSLR in the range of around $500?

    Would you consider a used camera?

    Does a lens need to be included in that budget?

    I got my canon Rebel XSI for $480 on ebay. The same seller is selling it now for $530 i believe if you want the link ill send it to you. It comes with a kit lens and an 8GB CF Card. Box is sealed :)

    I say look for used stuff. Like I am thinking of selling my XSI (I am not saying buy mine) but I got Mine for $1200(can) with a memory card and bag etc but I don't think I could sell it for more then $700(can) considering new it's $799 body only.

    Have a look, alot of good stuff out there

    Also, The XSI used SD card so it can come with 200 GB worth of CF cards but they will be useless with the Xsi

    A used 30d would be my top choice. As for new, an xti with kit lens, filter and card will run you around $500.
