When you buy a Canon Rebel series digital SLR, you get lots of great stuff with it. With most packages, you’ll get:
Rebel Body (Black or Silver)
EF-S 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6 IS Lens
Wide Strap EW-100DBIII
Video Cable VC-100
USB Interface Cable IFC-200U
Battery Pack LP-E5
Battery Charger LC-E5
EOS Digital Solution Disk and Instruction Manuals
“Great Photography is Easy” Booklet and “Do More with Macro” Booklet (not shown)
I bought a 35 mm Canon SLR about 8 years ago (obsolete now…), and I got the 28-80mm lens. Almost all the Canon cameras come with a more wide angle lens than that, which is awesome. The 18-55 is great – those 10 mm make a huge difference.
For the price, you get a great quality camera, a fabulous lens, and all the other gadgets and goodies you need to get going.
