My girlfriend has gotten into photography over the past couple of years since I gave her a Nikon point and click. She has had several since then and she has earned the name of the family paparazzi. She absolutely loves taking pictures of everything. She travels a good bit around the country and on her last trip to Ca came back with a couple of thousand in three weeks time. I told her to pick out a new camera for x-mas this year and this is what I ended up getting her... Cannon EOS Rebel XSi 12.2mp EF-s 18-55mm IS Lens EF-s 55-250mm IS Lens We already have some very nice tripods and I plan on also getting her a bag, remote and external flash (need help deciding on what to get). This will be her/our first DSLR camera and we are hoping to really enjoy it after we learn what all it is capable of. For generic family & landscape pics, will these lens suffice or do I need to start looking for another specific lens? What about shooting RAW vs JPEG? I have no clue what RAW is, but I have a feeling I am about to learn a great deal about it. What about lens filters? Are any better than any others? Why does she need them? She will be taking pics inside and out, daylight and dark. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
