    Hello all, my name is Ron Spalding and I am currently stationed in Iraq. I am looking to buy a nice D-SLR camera, specifically the Canon Digital Rebel. I have a few reasons why I want this camera and I have come to this forum for research and aid on this camera. Since I am a soldier, everyone knows that money is hard to come by, therefore I like to research items before I make a "large" investment such as this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Welcome to the forum, Ron!

    We have quite a few digital rebel owners running around the forum and they all seem to be very happy with their cameras. I'm sure they'd all be happy to give you more specific info and answer any questions you my have.

    Stay safe over there!

    I am working really hard on getting the camera. I still haven't found one for the right price. I found one, it was just a little too much though. As soon as I get the camera, I will be posting shots, unfortunatly, I won't be able to post them with great resolution. I will post some as soon as I get my camera though.

    Thank you everyone for welcoming me here. I am still an newbie with the photo thing. My girlfriends dad has a degree in photography and I am sure when I actually get to spend more time with him, he will show me how to use it properly. For now, it's using techniques learned from the the wonderful world wide web!

    I got my digital rebel at newegg.com...$899.50 at the time, but it changes, so keep an eye on it to get the best price. I see now it says it's $915.95.

    Welcome to the forum! :)

    I know this is the wrong forum to post this but I did post it in the equipment advice forum. I have found a website that has this camera for fairly cheap. I am just waiting approval of those who already have this camera.
