Whatever you do, don’t ask a Nikon / Sony / Pentax SLR owner, “Whats the best Canon Digital SLR camera I should buy?”. Camera enthusiasts tend to be incredibly brand loyal, and will argue endlessly over why their particular brand is the best of all time . . . and will always be . . . forever and forever amen!

For first time SLR owners, Canon makes one of the best selling and most critically reviewed entry level SLR cameras ever. I would of course be referring to the Canon Digital Rebel XTi digital SLR camera (~$650).

Its predecessor being the Canon Digital Rebel XT (still available ~$450), and it’s successor (recently announced but not yet available), the Canon Digital Rebel XSi (~$800?). If you’ve never owned a SLR camera before, and are a little nervous about taking the plunge, you really can’t go wrong with any model from the Canon Rebel lineup.

For anyone with a somewhat larger budget, the Canon EOS 30D, or the Canon EOS 40D both make excellent choices. Better kit lenses, less image noise, and a nicer LCD are just of the few features you’ll find. Full frame, means that you have an image sensor (CCD), that corresponds with the old 35mm film SLR cameras. To some, full frame is the holy grail of digital photography.
