    I am looking at my first DSLR camera, and from my very limited knowldge, I am considering this cannon. Does anyone have any experiences with it? I am a shitty photographer, but I am planning on getting more into it because I have a baby on the way, and I am sure there are many memories to be captured here shortly.

    Also, I am wondering if anyone can give me any sort of pointers on DSLR ownership and use. Is there any classes around that might "put me on game"

    The XS and T1i are great amateur camera's. I plan on picking up a T1i myself soon as well.

    The Rebel series is a great "baby" camera. I have upper end Canon DSLR's but end up with the rebel for most kid shots because it's the one that happens to be in the living room more often.

    I would suggest getting a better low light lens than comes with the kit. Something f/2.8 or faster.

    agreed with everyone. The Rebel series from Canon is very user friendly and some of the best intro dslr's around.
