I have had dreams of being a photographer for several years now and I really want to make it become a reality. I am taking a photography course through New York Institute of Photography. I currently have a Canon Rebel 35 mm that I have had for over 2 years--I dont have a good digital and honestly I have no desire to use my 35 mm because I can't see the images to practice taking photos. So I am in the market for a new digital camera but there are soooo many options. I really want to stick with Canon, I will have about $1000.00 to spend. I have seen several things on e-bay and other sites that offer package deals with extra lenses and tri-pod and other accesories but I dont know if those are quality deals. I will need to make this equipment work for a while and just need to know what models are my best options. Please give me some feedback!!
