Canon question for you
OK MCB so i have a guy locally who i may trade a paintball marker for a DLSR

The marker i have for trade is a Fusion FX

He is wanting to trade me a Canon Xti 10.1 MP w/a 50mm 1.8 lens and some batteries and a few extras.....

Now i just got a 14mp Fujifilm s4500 digital camera but still want a DSLR camera....Question is you think its a good trade and also anyone have experience with the Xti's?

Thanks.....wanted to save up for a Rebel t2.1 but moneys tight so i fugured maybe this will fill my need to have my Fujifilm and a Canon Xti

That's a pretty fair trade. I personally wouldn't jump on it just because I didn't care for the xti myself, at all really, but it's not a bad trade.

why didnt you care for the xti?

No AI Servo, and it felt insanely cheap.

The Canon Digital Rebel XTi has three focusing modes you can select from -- One Shot, AI Focus and AI Servo.

Just browsing online and found this.....I am new to the DLSR world thats why im asking. But im thinking about getting out of paintball and this is the first offer on my marker

Xtis are ok but theres a bunch of user interface issues with the rebel grade canons

One scroll wheel and no LCD is a huge issue you need to work arround.

Again this will be my first DSLR so i am willing to learn the basics, also my Fujifilm has a nice LCD and a EVF and i almost always prefer the EVF when taking the picture. I usually only use the LCD to view the picture after i take it.

never liked the cannon line, it seemed big. some pf my family that use say its eats battery up. They are older EOS line too. DSLR arent not cheap and i think its a good trade for ur frist DSLR. GL if u trade, i have 3 hobbies that arent cheap but they all work with each, off roading, photogarghy and paintball.

I say take the DSLR, it may not be the best but it will get you familiarized with that form factor and it comes with a good solid lens choice. Also I don't like DP products.

I would hold off and see if you cant sell the marker and find a kit (used)
in a B/S/T or CL
