Entry SLR rec for teenager

default -- Tue, 01/27/2009 - 13:34

My 17 year-old-son is interested in photography and would like to "graduate" to an SLR camera. He is considering the Canon EOS Rebel XS. Any thoughts on this or other recommendations?

 I would look at the Pentax D-200 as well.
It has anti-shake built into the body and a very good kit lens.

What about the Panasonic Lumix G1? If he likes to frame with an LCD, the G1 has advantages. If he needs a huge lens selection, the Canon is a great choice.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll take a look at those. I don't know about his need for a huge lens selection. The camera itself is quite pricey--so he won't e getting additional lenses for a while!
