Camera Porn

And here it is. I use the Canon Digital Rebel XT currently. I have been using this since 2004, and have had no problems with it save for the limited size of the body. the quality is amazing for the durability of the camera and the pictures you can take with it. I am considering an upgrade, but I will save that for another post.
