We are the proud new owners of a Canon EOS Rebel T3i along with these accessories (all of which came in a very convenient bundle from BestBuy besides the 50mm lens):
Before finalizing our decision to get the Canon T3i, we researched a variety of DSLR cameras on the market. Our research brought us to compare the Canon T3i, the Canon T4i, and the Nikon D5100. All three of these cameras seemed to be very similar, however the Canon T4i had a higher price tag and advertised a faster shutter speed as well as touch screen capabilities. Once at the store, we ruled out the T4i because at about $250 more, we really couldn't justify the need for slightly faster shutter speed and a touch screen. This left us deciding between the Canon T3i and the Nikon D5100. To be honest, I just have a thing for Canon and therefore we picked it because of the name brand. Really, both cameras are very comparable and I'm sure either would do the job for a non-professional blogger photographer like myself!

What kind of camera do you use to get the perfect pictures of your pets? Any suggestions for a first time DSLR owner?
