Thank you so much for your input: This is what I bought and hope it is the one you mentioned....Canon EOS Rebel T3i 18 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera and DIGIC 4 Imaging with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens
by Canon
I found it on Amazon for $569...

that is the canon forum, you might get better help there with canon users. This is the Nikon forum.

You should also get the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 which is about $110 new. This is an awesome lens for portraits and low light.

Go for the best price of the camera. Anything over 10 mega pex is a good camera. The truth be known its' not the camera that is important...its' the lens. I use many types of lens in my business from $700.00 to $3000.00 and they all attach to the same cameras. Hope this helps.
