Beginner DSLR

A Listmania! list by SAMUEL J STROMAIN (Vermont)
The list author says: "Many a times I had my cart stocked up with an intro kit for DSLR photography. I finally pulled the trigger and these are the things I've selected based on value (of course I'd buy everything L glass if money were no object), performance, and overall utility. Enjoy."
Canon EOS Rebel T2i DSLR Camera (Body Only) (Discontinued by Manufacturer)
1.  Canon EOS Rebel T2i DSLR Camera (Body Only) (Discontinued by Manufacturer) by Canon
The list author says:
  "Has everything I needed at an affordable price. 1080p video @ 30fps, super high resolution - basically a 7d with slower continuous shooting speed and a less substantial body. Magic Lantern turns this into a very nice piece of equipment. Got it w/out lens - kit is a waste of money."
Used & New from: $260.00

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Camera Lens
2.  Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Camera Lens by Canon
The list author says:
  "The nifty fifty. Save the money you'd spend on a kit lens and get this. It isn't built like a tank, but it takes great pictures. It will also teach you the art of framing your photos better. Keep it simple when you're just starting out. I wish I would have gotten the 1.4 to start out with, but this lens holds its resale value well."
$125.00   Used & New from: $64.99
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4,311 customer reviews)

Induro AKB1 Tripod with Ballhead 62-Inch Max Height 12.8lb Load Capacity
3.  Induro AKB1 Tripod with Ballhead 62-Inch Max Height 12.8lb Load Capacity by Induro
The list author says:
  "I wanted the Monfrotto, but it was getting too expensive with the head and all. This is a well built, lightweight tripod that will suit your needs well. Get a tripod before you start getting a bunch of lenses - an essential piece of camera equipment."
$159.00   Used & New from: $139.75
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (18 customer reviews)

Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 Image Stabilized USM SLR Lens for EOS Digital SLR's
4.  Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 Image Stabilized USM SLR Lens for EOS Digital SLR's by Canon
The list author says:
  "Got a good deal on a used one. A very acceptable compromise until I can upgrade to all L glass."
$389.00   Used & New from: $189.99
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (219 customer reviews)

Albinar Lens Mount Adapter for Canon FD/FL Lens to Canon EOS EF Body with Infinity Focus, made in Japan
5.  Albinar Lens Mount Adapter for Canon FD/FL Lens to Canon EOS EF Body with Infinity Focus, made in Japan by Albinar
The list author says:
  "Got this as part of a package deal with a 28mm FD prime lens on eBay. Can't afford an EF 28mm lens, and wanted to try it out."
$29.95
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (76 customer reviews)

B+W 58mm Circular Polarizer with Multi-Resistant Coating
6.  B+W 58mm Circular Polarizer with Multi-Resistant Coating by B+W
The list author says:
  "Lots of people like the UV filters. I tried one and am not convinced I need it. How many people do you know who break the front of their lens? Spend your money on this, you will get noticeably better results in your outdoor photos."
$74.61   Used & New from: $70.00
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (149 customer reviews)

The list author says:
  "You can buy two of these with money left over for what the canon equivalent costs. These get good reviews and are only slightly less powerful than the canon."
$85.60   Used & New from: $78.36
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (302 customer reviews)
