Ever since the awesome but $3500 Canon 5D came on the scene, Canon’s lower range but still awesome line of Digital SLRs have been plummeting in price. The super sweet spot among these is the uber- popular Canon Rebel XTi which comes in at the lowest price ever $499 (with a lens) at Amazon this week ($200 off). The 10 megapixel gem has been capturing pictures around the 9to5mac household for a few months now. We are still in awe of the pictures we take but the best part is that we get to pooh pooh all of our chump point and click friends because they aren’t "SLR sophisticated". We might just get another one for the family for Xmas.
Update: 1.5Tb SATA Hard Drive for $149
