5.0 out of 5 stars Nice!, November 23, 2005
This review is from: Canon Rebel T2 35mm SLR Camera with the EF 28-90mm f/4-5.6 III Zoom Lens (Electronics)
I looked at digital cameras for months - literally - before I just decided to lug around a 35 mm SLR. As everyone probably already knows, megapixels matter a whole lot when you're talking about blowing a picture up to a larger size. What's great about film is that unless the picture was taken out of focus, or in bad light, you can use a negative to blow something up and the quality really doesn't start to go down until you're making HUGE prints. (How huge exactly I don't know, but the biggest I've blown up was around 4x4 feet, and still no trouble.) The prints I've gotten out of this camera so far have been stellar. ( I use fuji film -- I think it's better than Kodak, even though Kodak has better commercials. Give it a try!)

The camera itself is not too heavy, granted, it's not the convenience of a tiny digital camera, but it's not as bad as I'd expected to carry it around all day. The neck strap is nice, the manual is actually easy to comprehend. I like a camera that has buttons for a lot of it's features on the body -- it seems complicated at first, but once you know how to use the features, they're much easier to access than they would be if you were scrolling through a menu. The T2 seems worth the hundred or so more dollars than you would pay for the very similar Rebel K2 by Canon.

One thing - make sure you take the batteries out if you're not going to be using it for a week or more. It seems like they go dead if they're in the camera, even if it is off.
