if you've been holding off for a good deal on a canon rebel DSLR, TODAY my friend. today is the day to pull the trigger.
right now you can get the canon t3 for $349.99 (reg $450), the canon t5 for $479 (reg $550), or the canon t5i for $699 (reg $850). these prices beat amazon by about $50 for each camera, so this seriously is THE best deal out there right now.
i own the canon t3i (not included in this sale) but it's almost identical to the t3, with the exception of a couple small bells and whistles like the screen doesn't swivel out on the t3. i chose a canon rebel after asking 3 professional photographers which DSLR they would recommend and they all unanimously said a canon rebel. at the time, the t3i was the best bang for my buck but this is for sure a way better deal!
also, if you're looking for more than just your kit lens (which is awesome, don't get me wrong), my favorite lens is the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Camera Lens. it will allow you to get that super blurry background with the subject in focus, like the picture below. it will work with any canon rebel.
