Planning on purchasing one but based off anyone's experience with these should I go with the Rebel or the D series? Overall what's the best value?

Need references/deals.

the T1i is less expensive than the 40d, has a better sensor, and can do HD video... go with the T1i

good looks everyone, thank you. my base budget is 500-700max. i am interested in a d series but then i would like video capability too so t1i sounds good. overall t1i? but is the sensor really better on a rebel series?

D series imo, but have you looked into any Nikons? Used/own both Nikon and Canon DSLRS. Prefer a used Nikon D300, if thats out of your budget Nikon D90. Great color accuracy, a lot better shooting in low light settings, in fact blows Canon outta water in low lighting setting

i dont think so... ISO performance on the 50D compared to the D90, regardless of which one is better, is still pretty damn close.

go big or go home. but really taking the safe route of mildly inexpensive lens is a pocket killer since youll crave for a different and more expensive lens in the future. i prefer nikon overall..

The t1i has the same sensor as the 50D so it's somewhat better than the 40D.

PS
Invest on a good glass(Lens) that's where you'll see the big difference.

hope that helps.

sadly 700 wont get you a T1i, but it is the best value for Canons.
if you only have 700 to spend i'de check into a XSI, its a real nice camera and if you are a beginner its got enough bels and whistles to keep you going for a long while.

dont waste your money on XSi just get the XS. otherwise 20D and 30D are almost identical you can find either set for around the same price on ebay.
the bigger cameras get the chicks.
i have an XSi pea shooter but it does the trick.
everyone says skimp on the body and invest in some good glass.

If you are just starting out i would recommend getting a rebel xsi those are going pretty cheap now, the whole video dslr thing is still a gimmick imo

how well does the t1i do with action shots? since it goes by a 9 point af-system i heard a lot of times the objects in motion won't be focused? true or false?

I never held or shot with a t1i but based on the specs It only shoots 3.4 FPS(Frames Per Second) so It's not really that fast. At the end of the day it all depends on what kind of action shots you're going to take. Hope that helps.
