Default Re: Need opinions on camera please!!!

I have the rebel and mine is a refurbished one as well even though I didn't realize that at the time-lol. I've had it for almost 4 years now I think. Unfortunately I haven't taken the time to learn the manual side of it, but it works well enough on automatic, but I'd really like to understand all of the other stuff. My problem is that I am HORRIBLE with trying to teach myself-I need hands on training but I don't really want to sit through a class I just want someone to take a few hours and explain it-lol.

And, ITA I have photoshop and couldn't live without it

Now as to why some people prefer the refurb over the new is because the refurbished had to go through all of the testing and pass all of the spec tests where the new are just sent out off the line without that testing so you actually could be receiving a better "used" camera than new! I hope that makes sense. If you have any questions let me know. What camera are you looking at?
All refurbished units sold by Adorama Camera are factory refurbished by the manufacturer. A refurbished unit from Adorama may be an ex-store demo, possibly used in field tests or sales displays, or it may have been ordered in error and returned to the retailer (who can't then sell it as 'new' so it has to be sent back to the manufacturer for refurbishment).


A refurb can also have simply been pulled from the production line if something appears faulty, or if it hasn't passed the final inspection. Most of the time it is a very minor issue that needs correcting, nevertheless, once it is pulled from the normal flow of production, it gets flagged as a refurbished model, so you may get a unit straight from the factory that has never been used.


A refurbished item will have been checked over by the manufacturer by hand, inspected very thoroughly, diagnosed, and calibrated by experienced technicians, and could therefore turn out to be more dependable than a new item - which will only have been checked by a process of systematic quality control protocol (ie by random sampling as it comes off the conveyor belt).


In the past Adorama warranted Canon refurbished for 90 days; since 1st May 2009, all Canon refurbished products from Adorama come with a 1 year return-to-Adorama warranty. The warranty we give covers anything the manufacturer's warranty covers for a new unit, including shutter defects.

I hope this helps, but if you need anything else, please do email me directly.

Thanks for the info...Have u tried looking at youtube to explain the camera. I looked on there last night to see if i would like the rebel or would even be able to understand it. I basically just want a camera to take the blurry backgrounds. I don't need all the other bells and whistles. I am thinking of finding an older camera on ebay to play around with, then moving on up to a more expensive one. Sorry, now i am rambling. Thank u for the info though...
