View Full Version : New Toy!

Well, I needed a new camera body since my current Rebel is right at its shutter rating and very well could die at any time (49k/50k shutter actuations) and it bothers me. I found this sucker for a "WOW! THAT'S A LOW PRICE!" price. Yes, I shot these with my phone, sorry for the quality. It's really odd taking pictures of a camera since it's how you take pictures...

Box it comes in:

Comparison with my old body:




By itself with a few typical lenses for size comparison (18-55 IS, 50mm F/1.8, and 70-200 F/2.8 w/o hood):

All the stuff back inside the bag (usually lens is attached but I is lazy):

Wanna sell me the xsi's battery grip if it works on the xti and you're parting the xsi?

Or just give me the mk2? :P

Anyways, damn thing is sexy.. you know I want it..

Lol, XSi battery grip fits it, the XS, and the T1i. Opteka battery grips are cheap, can come with two high capacity batteries, and are just as good as their Canon counterparts.

It shoots real, real nice... :)

Nice, are you going to sell the XSI?

I wish it had a screen almost as large as my XSi... My eyes are horrible and trying to read the little screen with all the information is a pain. Can't do it on the field at all. Then again, I don't really do that on the field.

XSi will be used as my spare for a while. Going to need to get a nice EF wide zoom soon. Thinking the Tammy 28-75 2.8 since it's cheap and has amazing IQ for the price.
