is this a good camera?

Canon EOS Digital Rebel

I just need a easy to use DSLR, also are there any DSLRs that let you use the LCD screen vs the viewfinder to take your photo?

suggestions would be greatly appreciated, I think I am wearing DH down and may be able to get a camera if I can find a good deal :D

I don't know much about the Canon, but I have a Nikon D3000 that I believe is the same price. I paid $500 for mine at Walmart. It was a package deal - Camera body,15-55mm lens, memory card and bag. I love it. It is a great starter DSLR. I have started taking a SLR class to learn how to get full use of it andtake better pictures.

As far as the LCD instead of the view finder, I think that is only an option on the more expensive cameras (over $1200). I thinkthe Nikon D90 may have that capability.

I ended up getting a Olympus E 410, it has the live view so I can take pics through the LCD until I get used to the viewfinder again, plus I have glasses so it seems like it'll be easier.

It comes with a 14-42 mm and 40-150mm lens, which would you recommend for everyday use? What types of shooting lenses are these???

I can't wait for it to get here and I can start taking awesome pics and joining in on some of the convo's on this board
:D :D :D :D :D
