    My wife has a Rebel as well, albeit an older model. She loves it.

    Hicks, you really won't go wrong with a digital Rebel.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    I'm thinking I might go after the one Heywoode and Duke have as they both seem happy with it, and now that it's a bit older I could get it for less money, which is probably for the best considering I'm a total newbie at this and wouldn't be using this a ton.

    Duke, this is yours, isn't it?

    I think you want the one packaged with the lens. Als, you'll need to buy a sizable memory card. (couple of gigs at least).

    Exactomondo.

    Get at least a 2GB high-speed compact flash card.

    Right, but first I want to confirm I have the right camera. Then I was going to ask about lenses. I figure I'll get the 4GB card (it's only like $13 on Amazon).

    You want a high-speed card.

    Also, I got my lens at Meijer, believe it or not. Canon 75-300mm lens is the one heywoode and I use in the club level or higher. This was also the same lens I used for the Milwaukee game.

    Just to update everyone,

    I want to give thanks to you all for your help, and a big thanks to heywoode for being patient with me in a series of PM Q&A's.

    I've ordered the Canon Rebel XS and several accessories to go with it, notably a very fast 8GB card and a 300mm lens (among other things).

    It should all start arriving at the end of this week, and perhaps next week.

    That's awesome!

    I still recommend taking a basic class. You just bought a very complicated machine, and it would benefit you greatly to know how to use all of its controls and learn a little bit about the visual language of photography.

    Some random vocabulary:

    Depth of field
    Shutter speed
    Exposure
    ISO
    Rule of thirds
    Burning
    Dodging
    Series vs. Sequence

    textedit doesn't have a word count feature, which makes it a huge failure for college students writing term papers.
    Sorry for the derail, but I just saw this the other day:
