    This is totally off topic but are there any dslr users that can give me advice for Christmas

    I'm looking to spend around 1000 or less on a camera from my wife. I've been seeing lots of deals.

    The two cameras I am currently compairing are the  cannon Ti3 and Ti4.  Is the Ti4 worth the 150 average price jump? 

     

    Also do you use a different camera  brand that is price compairable to the cannon and why do you like it better?

    Not sure on the T3i or new T4i, but I have a T2i and its pretty sweet. I'd have to look up the differences but I'd imagine the jump from the T3i isn't that big. However, I'd say get the T4i if you can. It's the newest and never hurts to give the wife the "new" thing right? Canons rock IMO. Good luck!

    It depends. What kind of hobbyist is she? If she is a serious, amateur photographer than you really can't go wrong w/ any of the entry level Canons or Nikons.

    Now, if she likes taking pictures...but is a casual photographer (aka, point and shoot), then you can save loads of money by purchasing something like the canon powershot s100

    $229 free shipping. also does 1080p movies.

    The only thing I don't like about it is that it doesn't have a swivel screen.

    I can send her some pic. of me for free.  She will really love you for it and you can spend the money on yourself :)

    you did not ask for advise on this part, but let me give it anyway.

    kits for the canon entry level dslr normally come with a 55mm lens or the 18-135mm lens - the latter a bit more expensive. i recommend getting the 18-135 just the same. i used to carry around three lenses that i kept changing. as my son grew up and started doing more outdoor activities, the changing of the lens became more frequent jus tto keep up. it gets ridiculous.

    the versatility of the lens is what will lad to iamges that stand out. it is worth the extra bucks.

    btw i shot a canon slr all the way back to the film days. i still shoot a canon.
