I'm about to get back into the photography game after about a 7 year break. In high school I used to shoot with an old school Pentax K1000 in B&W and develop my own film and prints. For some reason I just lost interest, but I'm amped to get back into it and buy a DSLR. I don't have a ton of cash to spend, but I know that I'll get back into it and love it. I want to buy a camera that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, but has good "modding" potential. I'm looking at the Canon Rebel XT (350D) and I have a couple of questions.
First off, for anyone that has this or has used this camera, I would like your input. What do you like about it? What do you not like about it? Is the "stock" lens worth it or should I just buy the base unit and a different lens? Does anyone have any sample pics from an XT with/without the stock lens?
The Rebel XT is the only one that I'm looking at right now, but are there any other cameras in the same price range that I should look at?
Thanks guys. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated!
