So I think I will be taking a photography class at college this fall quarter if I can. I was looking for a website that offered educational prices on cameras. I'm mainly looking for an XTi, but if I can find something better for around the same price - I'll swipe it.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

if u want something cheaper get an XTi, there awsome.

but stay away from boying camera bodies/camera kits on ebay. most of them are scams

Yeah, before you buy check resellerratings.com and see how they rate. There are a LOT of scammers out there ready to take your hard earned cash! Ebay is covered with them.

I used Craigslist and picked up a 20D with the 18-55mm, 420EX, and 75-300mm for $650. If you try that route, you can probably get the 20D for about under $500 used and purchase the 18-55mm IS for $160 (Amazon.com) and have a good start. That will be within the retail price of the XTi ($699.99)

FYI, you can get one for Photoshop, so you should think about that, too.

once you have a school ID Calumet, B&H, Hunt's, etc will all give you an education discount IIRC.
