mackieimages: #canon_eos_digital_rebel_xt Overall a great camera, especially considering the cost. The quality of pictures typically isn't the fault of the camera although I have heard of some lenses being bad. I've used this camera in just about every condition, including backcountry skiing, ocean sea kayaking, bike touring and it has held up great. If you're an amateur photographer looking to buy a digital SLR I would highly recommend something like the Canon Rebel XT. Aug 27, 08

sbullett: #canon_eos_digital_rebel_xt I'm very disappointed. When the camera is set to automatic mode it should take perfect pictures but it doesn't. Sometimes when I shoot a picture indoors the pictures is so dark you can barely see it. The flash is going off and still it's horrible. Does anyone else have this problem? Apr 27, 07
