    Anyone here use the Canon Rebel Digital SLR XTi?

    I'm pretty sure thats what I'm getting for Christmas this year.....(fingers crossed). Coming set up with 2 different Macro lenses. The camera specs out fantastic on paper, but anyone here use it for marble photos? Please tell me they will be great. I'm so excited, I haven't felt this way about Christmas since I was 8!

    Almost all of the new lenses by all makers are pretty good today.... not like it was 10 to 20 years ago. Computers and computerized machines have made a huge difference. When you get it... experiment and practice,practice, and have fun.

    Re: Anyone here use the Canon Rebel Digital SLR XTi?

    Catfish, I'm using a Canon Rebel XT with a Canon 100mm macro. I don't believe I have the skill to use the camera to its potential but I like it a lot. If after you get it and you have any specific questions let me know and if I can help I'll be glad to.

    Actually the camera belongs to my wife and the lens is mine, I'm hoping to get my own camera someday :happy77:

    I have the Rebel XT from a few years ago and recently bought the *PowerShot G 9* and LOVE it!!! Derrick, check out the G9 on the Canon site. It is the next thing to the Rebel and you can get wide angle lens for it. Also, a light shoe can be used. The difference is the cost.. Ritzcamera.com has it in stock for $499, no shipping costs, way less than a Rebel.
