Want. Want. Want!

I want the Canon EOS Rebel XTi SO BAD! I NEED a digital SLR.

I actually wanted a Nikon D40, but then I found out that all of my lenses from my film Canon Rebel wouldn't work on it. They will, however, work on the Canon DSLR. So tonight I dug out all of my camera equipment. I found my filter mount, along with a macro filter, UV filter, prism and polarizer. I found my hot flash, two cameras (old Yashica FX-103 and my Canon Rebel G) and three lenses (A Tamron 28-70, a Canon 28-80, and a Quantaray 70-300).

I also found a BOATLOAD of film, which I wonder if it is still any good. 200, 400 and 800. It's worth a try. Worse thing that could happen is they don't turn out. I got a roll of film developed about 10 or so years ago that was taken SPRING BREAK....1987!!! Only a few turned out, but that was really strange to see.

Anyway, enough rambling. If Scott does get a job, and we get our fence repaired, a new dishwasher and a new car for me, then maybe I'll get my camera.

That's so funny that you mention that. I was looking at those just two days ago. I found a body for $319.

Which did you find? The Canon XTi or the Nikon D40? Where did you find it at that price??? :)

I've never heard of any of the places that have the cheaper prices. Have you ever done any business with any of them?

I haven't but I'll have the hubby do his standard search to check them out.

I have done a lot of business with Tigerdirect but their body is $619.

I can't speak specifically about the places with the lowest prices but I would be cautious. I looked into a couple of them in the past and ready some really bad reviews (across multiple sites) Bait and switch, upselling and if you refuse to upsale the item is magically out of stock but they will go ahead and charge your card while you wait. Usually they will let you process the complete order and then call you back the next day. I'm not saying those specifically are bad...but corrupt camera shops are abound.
