Rebels are popping up like weeds!

B0000C8VU8.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpgIn the few short months since my purchase of a Canon EOS Digital Rebel, I’ve noticed that they’re popping up everywhere! I’ve seen them around at various events, but I counted about two dozen of them in use at the Boston BMW CCA Ice Race that took place on Sunday. Not only were spectators and professional photographers running around the course with them snapping photos, but competitors have started mounting them in and on their vehicles.

It appears that the sub-thousand dollar price tag and EOS lens compatibility has officially turned the Digital Rebel into the camera to own. Digital cameras have been around for years, but this past weekend was the first time I’ve ever seen such a high concentration of the exact same model being used by so many people! The coolest thing about it was that most of the photographers weren’t using the factory lens, which further proved that many of them probably already had existing EOS glass in their collection!

  1. I was one of those many running around with a Digital Rebel. I love the camera and have been snapping away since I got it in December.

    I decided not to get the packaged lens Canon was offering. Considering that it was only adding $100 to the cost, it must cost Canon somewhat less than $50 to build which makes me suspect it as a quality lens. I instead got a 28-105mm lens which has been OK. I’m not super psyched with it. Then I also got the 75-300mm stabilized lens (most of the ice race pics taken with that) and I LOVE that lens. It is awesome.

  2. I’ve been eyeing a digital SLR, but unfortunately have a lot of money tied up in Nikon lenses and a flash. Just glancing through the manual, I don’t see why the D100 is priced $600 more than the EOS Digital Rebel. (And quite a few people on this side of the rock are buying & happy with them.)
