Bought a Digital Rebel 350

I finally went ahead and bought the Canon Digital Rebel 350D. I'm glad I waited since, with the new model introduction, I got one a kit for $580 on eBay including a 1 year warranty. I'll let you know about it when I get it!

:2cents:

 

I think it will cost you twice this price to meet your expectations (maybe?!). The kit-lens are far away from beeing quoted as good from a semi-professional or ambitious-armateur point of view. Thats why i choose olympus E-1, the optics and a extremely good (but relative expensive), they are worth the price. I'm photographing with it for more than 2 years now. Sure you get serious canon lens, for really serious prices :2cents:

My other favorite would be Nikon, but thats really not my priceclass.

 

So, i don't know, if you have already DSLR experience. If yes, what is your favorite day(night-)time for photography. If not I would share some of my experience...

 

So have fun with the new SLR!

Well, I opted for the Canon since my mom already has several Canon accessories that I can use for the camera... thus saving me money in the end. :(

I've personally been holding off for the 10.1 megapixel Canon EOS 400D / Digital Rebel XTi. It is priced about the same as the Digital Rebel XT was. I kinda wanted to touch it before I buy, so I am waiting for my local electronics stores to get them in (just so I can just see the menus, functions, and such). After that, I will probably buy one online.

 

You probably can't find a Digital Rebel XTi (body+lens) for under $900 at the moment, so the 350D is definitely tempting at 2/3 the cost of the 400D.

 

Now I have myself thinking again.... should I get the Rebel XT and save a bit of money, or go with the XTi.... tough decision.

Dang. I'm in the same boat. I'm kind of hesitant to pay the "Be the first" premium on the XTi though. Might wait a few months, but then something else will probably catch my eye... This is going to be my first dSLR.

I didn't think the XTi had that many great new things to offer. The dust thing is cool but sounds like something easy to mess up, and the 2 megapixel difference isn't a big deal for me. It certainly wasn't like the bump between the 300D and the 350D.

 

One thing I didn't realize is that there are a lot of tutorials specifically for the XT out there. That's a plus for me.

 

I got it this week and haven't played with it much since I'm learning about digital in general, but I've been quite happy so far.

I think it's the 10MP & the 2.5" screen that is pulling me to it. I was looking @ some of the first TXI kits popping up on e-bay & the XT definitely has a better features/price ratio. Half the price almost.

    • i think the "red light" you are referring to is that you have a optical SPDIF output (3.5 mm) combo jack. it most likely will be "red" when audio is active. 
    • Domanda , ma il tuo configplist lo ha settato cosi Gengik????
      Noto molte cose atipiche , tipo aperto con Clover configurator nella sezione ACPI il nome DSDT.aml NON è selezionato , quindi in teoria NON dovrebbe caricare il DSDT che hai in Clover ACPI Patch , se usi SSDT x la CPU NON dovrebbero servirti quelle personalizzazioni sempre in configplist sezione CPU ...
      Secondo me dovresti partire da un configplist pulito , xche sempre secondo me c'è rimasto delle schifezze di qualche tool x installare facile    EDIT
      Scaricando il configplist di jolly NOTO ha impostato +o- come intendevo fare io , sistemando quello  sopra elencato e bammmmm NON avvia , mi forniresti x favore Hack info che trovi nella mia firma ???
      Grazie
    •   Can you share the Clover folder that lets you boot?
    • yes it is. i can boot using a backup from a backup of my clover. i am just trying to fix the VGA /HDMI so i tried using the clover i got from Allan
    •     I mean't to fix that. The new attached EFI only contains new USB patch that will unlikely fix anything unless your hackintosh is installed on a USB drive. If it is installed on your hard drive, as I said, try playing with the patches I attached in the screenshot (i.e. disabling some of them).   Your SATA Mode is AHCI in the BIOS right?
