Digital Cameras

Well, it looks like we are going to be getting a digital camera - our first, if you don't count the camera included on the camcorder, which I don't.

The one we have settled on (and have on hold) is the Canon EOS Rebel. We narrowed it down to three of them: This one, the Canon Power Shot, and a Nikon.

We were never thrilled with the Nikon, so that was quickly eliminated. Now we had it down to two Canon's, both at the same price. Feature-wise, they are very similar, with a couple of major differences: The Rebel is an SLR camera, takes pictures when you click (no delay) and has interchangeable lenses. The Power Shot, is an 8 Megapixel camera (compared to 6.3 for the Rebel).

Based on that, and the advice from friends that they can print an 8x10 with a 5 Megapixel camera without noticing any loss over a regular film camera, we chose the Rebel, because we could eventually upgrade the lense, and the SLR performance (which I don't totally understand, but was assured it was Good).

Anyway, we go to pick it up tomorrow - these things are hard to find!
