    Check online, you usually save quite a bit. I saved $150 on my camera buying it online, BUT, make sure it is a reputable shop, there are plenty of real shiesters <spell check> out there if you aren't careful. B&H, Adorama, are two good online retailers to check.
    Here is the same camera, with a 2 gb 133X card for quite a bit less

    Bryan, don't forget there are other brands besides Canon either. Go to a real camera shop, feel many cameras in your hands, check them out, and then decide !!

    Amazon has it for $689!

    And if you go on ebay you can find one NEW with additional lenses, case, camera card, etc. for about $1,000.

    The sony dslr is another good one...that's what I have and the only reason I went with the sony rather than the conon is that I had a minolta 35mm and could use my lens

    yeah i know there are many other brands out there but I've always been a canon guy. plus I did try out the xti and I really loved how it felt to use... but it'll probably should hit up an actual camera shop and just at least look at other ones...
