Bottom right: Canon EOS Rebel T3i $867.54 – No doubt this is a splurge but if you’ve been thinking of taking the plunge into the world of digital SLR cameras, this is the one to get. This is the camera that’s easy enough for beginners to use but also has all the fancy pro-level features so you won’t grow out of it. It’s also got a killer high definition video recorder built in. Plus, its immense popularity means that there are tons of free resources online to help you use it to its full potential. I have the T2i and LOVE it – the T3i is the latest and greatest version that just hit the shelves a few months ago.
