Been looking at the T3i

What I want to do is family pictures while we are out, but I also want to do sell stock when I am good enough. I don't have a problem learning how to manually adjust settings. I did that when I had an old SLR (film based) in HS though I have forgotten how to do everything. I would also be interested in shooting movie clips but that is a low priority.

Would also be interested in doing microphotography since it is so cool.

Is the T3i a good camera for what I want. The price range is right.

The T3i is a good camera. Everything else depends on the rest of your equipment (lens, flashes, etc)

ok, sorry to bring it up again. Ive heard some people say that the T3i has a noisy shutter. Is this the case. Is there another camera I should also be looking at. I want to have my first camera be a good one for my budget (6-900).

Every DSLR has a "noisy" shutter.

If it sounds like the older Rebel models, then it just has a high pitched sneezy sound to it, which is what they were probably referring to...

yeah, thats the sound. Do all cameras basically sound like that?

Nope, I have a 7d and it definitely sounds more pleasing than that.. at least to my ear.

Just search on Youtube for "(insert camera name here) shutter sound"

Yeah, higher end models tend to have a nicer sound, but they all tend to be "noisy." You're probably not going to get better sound without expanding your budget

Though you might be able to get a 60D at that price, and they sound better IMHO. There is also 50D but you lose video

You can always sell the T3i, and lenses will likely become more of a concern later on.
My sig is serious business.
