An excellent entry level Canon EOS camera
2

Last year, after getting interested in photography, I paid $150 used for an EOS 350D in excellent, as new condition.  Last May, my daughter and I went to our family farm near Humansville, and she fell so much in love with the camera I gave it to her.

This camera cost a thousand dollars in 2005, and the buyer got their money's worth.  It shoots beautiful, vivid photos in JPEG on default settings.  It's fast, it's easy to learn, and every EOS Canon lens you buy for your Rebel XT will fit the next Canon EOS camera body you buy.

My daughter actually uses her camera to make a little money, shooting at rodeos.  The photos look great printed out to 8x10. She takes it with her everywhere, and has made some stunning photos with it.

But the proof is in the photos.  These were our first attempt at using the camera.

-Yet the best part of the day for me, was using my Canon SX 160 IS to take photos of her learning to use the Rebel XT.

She went out and used to take pictures of a rodeo queen, not long after.

Five stars for an oldie but a goodie, the Rebel XT.

For as little as they cost, they are one of the best JPEG cameras Canon ever made.
