Re: What do I want to buy?

This just in! Might be stretching your budget, but might be worth it.

EOS Rebel T1i EF-S 18-55mm IS Kit- $900
-1080p video @20fps

More info HERE

I don’t know much about Canon, but this camera seems worthy of mention. At this price there is still room to purchase your reflector and UV filter. It comes with onboard flash (like the Nikon), and the lens also has image stabilization (like the Nikon) which can make up for a tripod.

Between the Nikon and Canon I suggested, I see the Canon better in 3 areas:
-15.1mp vs. 12.2mp
-9 vs. 3 AF points
-1080p video vs. "stop motion video"

So is it worth the extra $200? up to you if you would need or use the extra features.

Hope it helps,

Thanks everyone. After reading all the suggestions, I think I'm going to wait until fall and spend a little more. I'll go and handle a few cameras and learn a bit more about the different available features. Appreciate all your help!
