EOS 450D / Digital Rebel XSi ~ owning a piece of my story had set me back a cool 3K for a full package comprising of the 450D body + EF-S 18-55mm IS kit lens + 2G SD card + standard issue carrying case + very plain looking tripod (thank god it wasn't pink in color). Ouch! That's quite a premium to pay for an entry level kit, if you're looking to take it to a whole new level from the normal point-and-shoot league. Butin the long run, i believe it is going to turn out to be a sound investment ~ i would want to be able to capture the highlights & defining moments in my life, in the best shot possible & piece them together to tell a story from my own perspective. Okay, i'm still a noob when it comes to photography, & i know nuts about getting all the settings: ISO, shutter speed, NA & etc just to get the correct exposure, about getting accurate focusing & about what makes a good photo composition... but i know how to appreciate a beautiful photo when i come across one. Well, life's a journey of discovery... there's no better way to explore photography & discover one's creative touch by investing in its most basic tool ~ an entry level dSLR. I had spent quite sometime contemplating on whether i should seriously invest in one, & given the multitude of choices that are available, where do i even get started? Had done my share of research & read-ups, and after garnering valuable advices from friends with photography experience, i finally set my sight on this one. *heh, finally succumbed to the poisoning thoughts from my bunch of EOS evangelist buddies at work =p * It's has been a decision without regrets *so far =p It's only Day02 after her virgin shot & she's seen over a couple of hundred shots already & the battery will need a recharging in no time, at this rate* =D

*P/s this is not a proper product review, if it's a technical review you want, please log on to*
