I bought the T3i thinking i would use the Video mode but i dont really use it. So im thinking of selling it and getting used camera and with money saved get a nice lens. I dont shoot much other than my kids. What body would you recommend. Looking to spend $500.00 or less on the body.

How about a 40D? You can find them used for $550.00. Selling the T3i wouldn't get you much more then $650.00-$700.00 max as they sell for $799.00 brand new. You might as well just keep the T3i.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

Even disregarding the video mode, the T3i has some other nice features - a great crop sensor, good high-ISO performance, wireless flash control (maybe you don't use it now, but you might some day).

What lenses do you currently have?

For general-purpose, indoor photography of kids and family and pets, I might recommend just getting a good fast prime, like a 50mm f/1.4 ($300 for Canon's, $450ish for Sigma's), or the 50mm f/1.8 (barely more than $100, a great lens for the price).

I agree with Saint, 40D is a great camera. I would definatly buy that with a 70-200mm F/4 Non IS lens. Great combo

I'd just keep it and save for a new lens.

Why don't you just try to sell it and see? You might get close to what you want. I don't think you got robbed. You paid retail. That's close to the Amazon price by $30 right now. I think in the right auction you would get your $800 (body + kit lens). Now if you didn't get a lens with it for that price then you did pay too much. Try here first. Just list it for $800.

I would say keep it. Its still a great camera and will last you for a while. Keep it and get some more lens for it.

If you got the 18-55mm lens with it for $930.00 then its only $30.00 more then buying it on-line. I was talking about body only for $800.00.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

As some others have commented, with your budget, I'd suggest keeping the body. Maybe buy a nice flash if you don't yet have one? Maybe the 430? Not as exciting as buying a new body or lens but IMO much more useful if you don't yet have one. Makes a world of difference in image quality over using the built-in flash.

I agree with the others who recommend keeping it. The high ISO performance will be better than a 40D and if you are shooting kids, you are likely doing it indoors where the high ISO will help.

Yeah at that price keep it. It's a great camera, and just shoot more videos of the kids or something lol. The only bodies that kind of keep their value right now are the 5Ds.
