In the below video I thoroughly discuss a great starter camera for those looking to get into DSLR photography on a budget. The Canon Rebel XSi or 450D is a 12.1 camera that runs about $150 to $200 for the body used. I cover its operation and menu in detail. I also recommend picking up a $25 3rd party Battery Grip for your XSI. It will double the battery life, let you hold the camera comfortably during portrait shooting, and just make it look more pro.
