I wanna get a DSLR. I'm upgrading from my point and shoot so I know very little about photography.
What do you think would be better for a n00b? The Digital Rebel XSi or Canon 30D??
I've spent hours reading reviews, and would probably have to go to the store and molest both of them before I can form a better opinion, but was just wondering what ya'll thought.
Now, you might wonder why I'm posting this in this forum, well, that's because I figure there are more photographers in here than the other forums.
Things I like about each:
Rebel is smaller. Means I might want to carry it with me more.
Newer, slightly better features like sensor cleaning, Digic III. (not a big deal in my book)
Heard the build is better. Feels more quality.
"Easier to use." (with the scroll wheel and all, and less menus to go through)(very important to me if it is actually true)
Better pentaprism viewfinder.
Also, I probably would not "just get the cheaper one and a better lens", since I know nothing about lenses right now. I'll wait to upgrade the lens after I shoot a little and learn what I don't like and what I'd like in a new lens.
