First of all, hello people. I'm the new kid. I like to take pictures. Thats why I'm here :mrgreen: I sell a lot of things and I'm always taking pictures to put up on my ads. I've been quite surprised at some of the shots I've taken with my little point and shoot. I'm also in a band and like to take pictures and videos of my own and other bands. So, I'm thinking about buying a better camera. The thing I like about the Canon T1i is that it's a pretty nice camera and takes nice HD videos all in one, which I love. So it could also replace my cheap Sony Webbie HD camcorder. I normally don't like to buy things brand new to save money, so I tend to look for the used, but like new things. Anyways, I found a 1 year old Canon Rebel T1i with two batteries, the original charger, a travel charger and a 4G Sandisk memory card. The seller told me he bought it in China and doesn't have the box and the video cable. This sounded kind of fishy to me, but maybe it's nothing to worry about. He said he would take $500 canadian which is $485 USD. Sounds like a good deal to me, but just thought I would check with people who would know more about it than me. If I go to look at it, what are some things I should check for? as I said it will be my first DSLR and I haven't had much of a chance to use one.
