    I want to give a Canon 35mm EOS camera and a lens kit as a gift but since I'm not into photography myself, I have no idea who has a good or bad reputation. Any help?

    I'm not sure what you're asking. If you're asking who is a good, reputable online vendor, then I can recommend Beach Camera, B&H Photo Video, or Adorama. There are obviously more, but I have dealt with these and all went well.

    I'll second B&H. Haven't dealt with the others in a while.

    I am asking for good sources of cameras and lenses because I don't know which ones are good and which ones I should stay away from.

    Those 3 are pretty much it. Most others may have lower prices, but are sometimes missing stuff out of the box. There is a site called something like resellerratings.com. Look there before buying anything if you don't like the suggested places. I think Dell is a Canon dealer also.

    keh.com in Atlanta is outstanding for used gear. Always happy and things are always as advertised.

    I've bought from Beach, no problems.
