When it comes to preserving memories, a good camera is everything. We've all had the experience of taking photo after photo at an important event, only to upload the photos later and discover that all of your photos are blurred. Or too dark. Or too bright. Or with the awful flash glare. Or they just don't capture the colors of the event, the way you saw it in your mind and in the viewfinder! It's so frustrating.
If photos are important to you, I highly recommend purchasing a DSLR (digital single-lens reflex) camera. To be more precise, I highly recommend purchasing a Canon DSLR! We have had our Canon Rebel for over 4 years, and couldn't be happier with it. The Rebel is sooo much better than a point and shoot camera. First of all, you don't have to wait ages for the camera to be ready or for the camera to save your shot. Second, you can use different kinds of lenses -- macro lens, wide angle lens, with or without zoom features, etc... -- to capture different moods and scenes. Your son's fast action soccer game photo is so different from a still life photo of your latest baked creation! Also, the Rebel has lots of different modes to help you get that perfect shot. Best of all, it's still easy enough for a beginner to use. Yes, they are a bit pricier than point-and-shoot cameras, but it's a great investment -- and when you purchase a Canon Rebel at Best Buy, you can save $100-$150!
