Larry that was definately a some good advise. I guess it comes out to sharing the Digital Rebel with my son and keep on taking those pictures that I am doing. I am very meticulous on how things come out, especially when transferred to the PC or laptop to view the shots taken. Yes, taking 30 and get 2-3 good once is the good thing. What I failed to mention is that I also have the Rebel 2000 35mm which I understand will give me the full frame ability but results are only available to view after the film has been developed. The only unaffordable full frame for now is the Canon 5D which is out of my range. You are absolutely correct that I should hold off until something better is coming out and is more affordable. My fingers are itching for this advise right now. It will keep me from spending.
