I have a Canon EOS Rebel circa 1993, including a 300-zoom lens and some filters. I love it too, but since I bought my first digital, Nikon Coolpix 3200, I haven't used the Canon. It is a monster to travel with, but I can't part with it.

Oh, and I have an old Besler-Topcon 35mm camera that my dad gave me years ago. I might put that one on ebay. Works, but who needs 3 cameras?

I have a Canon EOS-II (I think that's what it's called) and eagerly await the day I can get a digital Canon and still make use of all those lenses etc. I love it but I can't stand dragging around all that stuff only to have to wait to get the film developed. I'm just too impatient.

So meanwhile I have a little Vivtar ViviCam that works decent but seems to be showing some age - about 1 in 10-15 shots somehow corrupts before I can get them out of the camera. And I hate that whole "digital delay" - say cheese -- wait -- wait -- wait -- there it is!

just too impatient in general for the technology I guess!

The only tip I can give is not to drop it...lol. Unless you want to know how to take lightning photos...I've been doing a lot of that lately.

Oh...and to be on the safe side, you could always just send it to me. I'll take good care of it! ;)

Anyone wanna chime in on their experiences with this model?

I can officially report that I now have a Rebel XT. If you are looking into one of those, I could offer up some advice and help. So far I am LOVING it to no end. The only thing I have learned is that splurging on the image stabilizing lenses would probably be a good thing, if one has the money to spend on them. I don't have very steady hands (who does at 300mm?), so it would be nice to have them. But for now, I must save all my cash for a house...
