Bad, horrible, sad news...my camera has bit the dust. It's just a point and shoot that will no longer hold a charge. So to make lemonade out of my lemons I've decided this is the perfect opportunity to buy a big girl camera! I've been pondering it for weeks and while this is sooner than I had planned...you just gotta roll with what life throws at you.
The problem is that I'm now soooo confused. I spent the morning googling reviews and getting advice on exactly what camera I should buy and I'm lost. I think that I like Canon better than Nikon because it felt more comfortable when I played around with them at Best Buy. However, I thought it would be easy to just buy a Canon Rebel and be done with it. Ummmm, not so much.
There's xti's and xi's and tsi and abcdfg's...arg! I'm really confused! Please help! These are the questions I have (keep in mind that I'm just getting started, but want a camera that can grow with me):
- Which Canon Rebel should I get? Specifically, what three little letters should I be looking for?
- Do I just buy the "body" of the camera? Whatever that means. I'm assuming with no lense-do I need one of those right off?
- Where should I go to get the camera?? Is Best Buy a good place or no?
Don't laugh at me please! I'm so confused....*head in hands*
