Canon EOS Rebel T1i 15.1 MP

I was very tempted to purchase this one in the beginning. The only reason didn’t is because I didn’t think I would use the video.  I wanted to buy a camera to take pictures and that was my only focus so I went with the Canon XSi which is a little less in price. Although I must admit at times  it would be really cool to have the video! you can check out some photos from the flickr group Canon EOS Digital Rebel T1i
