This is my camera.
It is a Canon EOS Rebel T1i. I bought in early-mid 2009. Will and I made new budgeting rules and I have my "own" money from being a Pleasure Party Consultant for Brown Bag Parties.
It took me a few months/parties to save up the money, but I busted my butt with a plan. I bought this baby and I haven't looked back. I researched and researched and was certain Canon was the way to go for me. I had almost had the money when they released the new version which includes video on it. I was so excited. It was a tad more, if I recall correctly, but well worth it. I have a few friends who have raved how nice it is that I have it "all in one" during school presentations and things.
Anyways, after I bought it and brought it to a family gathering, my Mom mentioned that she was going to throw out her old 35mm and the lenses looked similar.
Not only were they similar, they were the exact same camera. She had a 35mm Canon Rebel. The lenses and flash work wonderfully. There is one really nice zoom lens that doesn't seem to want to work, but since I didn't actually pay for it, I can't be too bummed, you know?
