Keep in mind that the high price tag isn't a real issue here... Okay, so Christmas is coming up and my parents are wondering what I want this year. I've told them about the Canon Digital Rebel XT and how awesome of a camera it supposedly is. We have a close friend of our's who has one and I have used it for a couple minutes or so, and I really liked it. But first some background info... the camera I have now is a Kodak 3.1MP EasyShare DX4330 and it is definitely time to upgrade. There is no doubt that I want to move up into the dSLR world, which is why I am looking at the Rebel XT. It has gotten excellent reviews and it looks like a fun camera to learn how to use and get some experience from. I understand dSLR cameras are lens expandable, which is pretty awesome considering I can always upgrade in the future. Not only that, but this camera could last me a very long time. As for my seriousness about digital photography, I consider it one of my main hobbies so this purchase would make it even more exciting with all the great technology I could have at my hands. I am really looking to take better macro shots as well as motion shots (pets can't sit still... ). So would you suggest I get this camera for Christmas? Or should I look at another model? I've heard the Nikon D70 a nice one, but I would still like the Rebel XT to be my first choice. Thanks for the help; I really appreciate it!
