I'd been taking digital photos for more than a decade, when, in August 2008, I decided on a digital SLR camera and bought the Canon Rebel XSi (this camera is also called the Canon 450D). A year later, I also purchased a newer version of the Rebel, the Canon EOS Rebel T1i in order to have some more capabilities and a second camera body.
