For several years I have used a Canon PowerShot A610 camera.
I like this little point and shoot camera a lot. It has served me well and been a faithful companion over many miles.
However, this summer I am taking a class in digital photography. The first thing I was told was that my little point and shoot camera was not acceptable. I had to get an SLR camera. I think that stands for Single Lens Reflex. I really don't know. That is why I am taking a class.
After looking at lots of used cameras on CraigsList and eBay and other places, I think the camera I have decided to buy is a Canon Rebel t3i.
This looks like a real bad boy camera (is that the right lingo?). It reminds me of a 35 mm film camera I used to own in the 80s and 90s.
So if you are into photography, let me know if you happen to see this. I know nothing but I think I want to get a camera that is new and, most imporantly, easy to use while still taking a good picture.
Any thoughts will be appreciated.
