I have an 2006 Canon Rebel XT with the default (16-18mm???) lens. In all these years I haven't cleaned the lens or camera and I have got a little scratch (visible on pictures only when noticed keenly). The picture quality taken with this camera is not that great – sometimes even a point-n-shoot pictures are looking better.
Now that I have a newborn at my home, thinking of going in for a better option and this is where I need some suggestions.
Should I repair/clean the existing Canon Rebel XT? Or should I go in for a newer/latest model?
Here are few things to consider:
though I initially bought a DSLR with the intention of becoming a pro at photography I couldn't invest time and energy on that, and just used the DSLR at very basic level.
main intention for me now to go in for better option is not to miss the precious moments of the newborn
mostly I will be uploading the photos over social media n very rarely is going to ho for large prints
if there is any better point and shoot model which is as close to a DSLR, I would prefer that over a professional DSLR (Not way too compromising on overall picture quality for my above mentioned usage)
