In 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!
