I love my Canon Eos Rebel T5i!  I have always enjoyed photography but when I had my children I wanted to upgrade my picture taking from cell phone photo's to a real camera.  Last year during my latest camera upgrade the Best Buy associate recommended the Canon Eos Rebel T5i and it has been amazing.  It takes incredible pictures and videos, has all the bells and whistles of a great camera, the flip screen makes jumping in the picture myself a synch, and its priced extremely reasonable!
