Since signing up for the METAV class at Big Picture Classes, I have been taking lots and lots of pictures with a focus on telling the everyday stories of my family. I love my little Sony Cybershot camera and it has served me well over the past 4 years; however as of late I have been obsessing over the idea of making the photo leap and purchasing my first DSLR camera. Being a DSLR virgin, I thought I would take it slow and go for something that wasn’t too expensive but something that still produced a quality photo. After spending a few days, surfing the World Wide Web I finally found what I believe to be my perfect match – the Cannon Rebel XS 10.1 MP DSLR. For a cool $499 plus tax I can get this beauty courtesy of my friends at Amazon. Now I just need to convince my dear sweet husband to buy it for me. Any suggestions???
