I need to get a camera for kayak shots...

Looking for a Rebel XT at the moment, but curious what ya'll might say. What should I expect to pay?

I have two Canon lenses, so I need to stay Canon...

What is your price range?

XT can be had anywhere from $500 to $1000 depending on condition, accessories and memory chip. If you really want quality images go cheap on the SLR body and spend your money on the right glass. You can have the nicest camera but with a shitty cheap lens on it you're going to lose image quality. When shooting whitewater in shaded areas you will see an awesome difference between a f2.8 lens and a 3.5.

I have one and love it. Does everything I could ever need. As for quality, several of the shots have been used in our recent ads. I got it about 8 months ago. I did get an upgraded lense.

For around the same price as the XT, you could pretty easily find a used 20D, which has a metal body (much more durable), a much better sensor and a lot more features.
