I just went to Adorama and traded in my S3 IS and picked up a used Rebel XT with 18/55 lens. The salesman said it was a demo and not a used model. Do I believe him? Not sure. It works, I got the body lens 2 batteries and charger and strap for 250.00. Sadly he only gave me 85 for my S3

Anyone know how I can find out how many shutter triggers it has?

Adorama is VERY trustworthy.
Good job getting it from a reputable dealer!

Hahahaha, it's customary to break in the new camera with a duck shot and share it here.

To determine your shutter counts..

goto http://www.astrojargon​.net/EOSInfo.aspx (external link)

and download his EOSInfo program -- it will show your shutter count when you connect your camera to your pc.

I don't believe there is a way to extract the amount of shutter actuations on the 350D. As long as it works properly I would not worry about it too much. Just go shoot and enjoy!

No this method will not work correctly..

"the shutter counter will not be displayed (or will be displayed as "0") on the 1D*, 5D, 10D, 20D, 30D, 300D, 350D, and 400D."

Congrats on the new camera buddy, you will enjoy it. I have had one for two years now and still love it.

I promised I would sell mine once I upgraded to a 50D but am reallly reluctant to let it go, my excuse to the Mrs is that I haven't got a remote switch and battery grip for the 50D yet...:)

Look forward to seeing some more piccy's

Congrats on the new camera and nice shot of the bear but you still need a duck shot for good luck with the new gear (no duck, no luck).

I always knew there was something wrong with my shooting and that's clearly the problem ... I haven't been shooting enough ducks ... I think I haven't shot a single duck since upgrading to the 50D. I better put this right ...

Could be the start of a new tradition. ;)

Congratulations on the new camera. I've been using a 350D/XT for the past few years and it's a great camera - enjoy! :D

How much money are you planning on spending, and which is your primary interest, wildlife or landscape?

It will be difficult to get a really good zoom that will cover both wildlife and landscapes, as you want to go long for the first and wide for the second. The "super zooms" that go from wide to far (e.g., ef-s 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS, MSRP $699.99) will have more compromises built in than less ambitious zooms. You could go for something like the ef-s 55-250 f/4-5.6 IS, which is pretty inexpensive (MSRP of $299.99, probably available more cheaply). If the 18-55 you got with the camera is the IS, then that makes a reasonably good landscape lens. If you have the non-IS version, you can pick up the IS for around $110 refurbished.

If the 18-55 will handle the landscape end for you, a very good (but non-L) lens at the longer end for wildlife is the ef 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS, MSRP $649.99 and probably available for around $550 or so.
