Is owning a Canon Rebel a joke?

So if a brand name is old, then it should never be questioned?

Regarding the OP, yes. A corporation certainly should review its brand strategy annually, but in regards to whether using a Rebel should make the consumer feel inferior, that brand has been around 24 years across 25 or more different models, the answer is not to question the name, but whether the model satisfies your needs, and you are able to use it as a tool to capture what you want.

I just kind of regret my choice of camera and now saving up for a something else. I'm probably the only one that feel this way. That even if I'm just starting out and learning things about my dslr it's not good enough in the eyes of people because it's a rebel.

Besides, why any issue with the term? Everyone is a rebel in regards to something in their lives as compared to others. It is not a negative term, and even in today's of silly political correctness, it just isn't something that should raise an eyebrow. If it does, then people need more (and better) things to fill their time on this earth. ;)


In any case in regards to Marvin (TS), based on the pictures I have seen him post, he has nothing to feel bad about using his T3i, his results are quite good. :)

The first camera I ever bought for myself was a T-50, and I got some snickers from the AE1 users, but that stopped when my pic was chosen over theirs in a contest.

I jumped from film into digital with a Rebel XT and made some money with that camera. Never felt like I was 'under-gunned'. Still have two XT bodies, though one is retired.

Now I have a T5i and I really like it. It does everything I want it to do.

Would I like to have a 5DmkIII and every L in the catalog? Sure I would, but it wouldn't change the way I see the world through my lens, it would just give me warm-fuzzies. :D
