What’s nice buying from Amazon ? No taxes and free shipping.
What’s even more sweeter deal is if Amazon drops price on hight ticketed items like DSLRS. This is the deal to pound on – A Canon Rebel XTi DSLR Packages – $550 for body & $618 for kit (Kit includes default lenses)
Silver body – $549.67
Silver kit – $617.93
Black body – $549.94
Black kit- $628.11
A DSLR camera gives great pictures at high ISO’s , meaning the higher the ISO,the more sensitive the sensor is to light which means that you can take pictures in low light situations that you wouldn’t be able to get with a P&S. If you are taking pictures outside then that’s usually not a big deal. If you are taking indoor pictures like weddings, parties, family pics, sports, school events , then DSLRs can be very important.
