yeah, with our coolpix i can hold the button halfway down and it will lock in the exposure/focus settings that the autofocus has adjusted itself to, but the picture still isn't instant when i push it the rest of the way down. it's definitely faster, but there's still a split second lag. that's pretty much the way it's been since we've had it and so i've learned to compensate for the lag when doing action shots.

Yeah that's true, you do learn to adjust to the delay.

A couple of thoughts here. A bigger camera like the Rebel can present problems. It's the same size camera as an older SLR so it's not convenient to carry around. If you don't carry it much, you're going to miss a lot of opportunities. Do you want a camera that you can carry with you on rides? Again, a huge negative for the Rebel type camera.

I'm not putting down the Rebel. Looks like a great system and I'm a big Canon fan. I own an A-1, AE-1, T-90, T-50, G-3, A-40 and S200 Canon's. I use the S200 in the fanny pack since it's very compact and has a tough SS case. I use the G-3 for most everything else these days.

Lots of great choices out there but just make sure of YOUR needs and get the appropriate camera rather than buying something you may not be happy with.

Be very, very careful of buying from the lowest prices online places. Check out reviews, call them, etc. If they put a high pressure sales pitch on you trying you to get you go buy anything more than you need, hang up. I've read so many horror stories of cameras that never ship, ripoff accessory pricing on cheap junk, gray market cameras that have no warranty and horrible after sales support.

There are some good camera forums out there, too.
Here's one.

That's what I was going to say. I have the Canon S-30 and I love it. Yes, you have to learn work the camera, but it was a far cry from as expensive as the rebel. However, if I had the $$$ I'd get the rebel in a heart beat.

I always go half way down to focus, then when the target is where I want it, I press the rest of the way. I very rarely miss my target. There is a learning curve, but it's no big deal IMOP.

I paid $400 for mine, and it's a very good camera. Not a rebel, but a good camera none the less.

One other thing. I've used the Kodak, Cannon, and Sony, and the Cannon takes the best pictures of them all.

Amen Woody...Canon is the best IMO.

Jeb...good point about carrying convenience. You do not want to carry the rebel in a fanny pack while riding, not to mention the expense if you go down.

Zoo:

I have a Canon EOS rebel film camera.

Do the digital & the film use the same lenses ?

If so I'll look into buying the Canon rebel SLR when I go digital!

As I allready have the Tameron 70-300 zoom & an Canon 35-80 zoom, along with the 50 mm standard fixed lens.

I have a Sony, which has been great, but it's difficult to get used to. The Canons seem to be the best in my opinion on how quick they snap the pictures.

Big M...they sure do All those sweet lenses you have will transfer just fine over to the digital rebel. Plus, you can save some $$ and just buy the rebel body, instead of the "kit".
