So the time has come...

...for me to sell my beloved Canon EOS Rebel XSi.  Yes, you read that correctly, I am selling my very first DSLR!  I feel a little sentimental to be honest with you.  I know that sounds silly, but it really has been a wonderful camera for me and I do love it dearly.  Don't worry though (not that you would -- lol), I'm not saying goodbye to photography, I'm just hoping to upgrade.  But in order to do so, I need to sell my XSi first.


Here is all the info as it will be listed on Craigslist.


I am selling my dear Canon EOS Rebel XSi that I purchased in August of 2009.  She comes with the original box, software, and cords and additional accessories as listed below.  She is in excellent condition and has been well loved and well cared for, with no signs of wear.  The only reason I'm selling her is because I'm hoping to upgrade.  If you would like to view the photos I've taken with her, just scroll through my blog.  I can't say enough about this camera and I hope to give her a good home.  If you wish to purchase the camera with the lens, please let me know and we can work something out.

I'm selling her for $575, including the following accessories:

*original box with manuals, software, cords
*camera bag
*canon camera strap
*battery charger
*2 rechargeable batteries
*SanDisk Ultra 8GB SD memory card (worth $50.00 at Best Buy) 
*LCD screen protector
*BONUS: DVD Michael the Mentor "Canon XSi Crash Course" (this DVD helped me a lot and taught me all the basics)

NEGOTIABLE:
*EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Kit Lens
*UV Filter

SO funny -- I think I'm ready to sell my DSLR too! Although, I don't think my photos look quite as awesome as yours, but I still think it's time to upgrade (plus, the screen on the back of the d70s is TINY compared to what's out there now!). Good luck selling it. What do you hope to buy??
