So, I am not a complete beginner with DSLR photography but this will be my first camera of my own so I was hoping for some recommendations on camera and lenses. I use my sisters Canon Rebel t2i a lot and a very old Nikon DSLR for my school newspaper but since I am going off to college I want to get my own since I plan on picking up my hobby of photography a little more. I have been researching for months but I figured I might as well try one of these forums since they generally have people with more knowledge that will give me less opposing opinions then just researching on the internet. Budget I would prefer the body alone to be no more then $800 and then nothing more than another $700 for three basic lenses. That is my max budget, of course if the body is less than $800 I will pay more for lenses but I don't think I need that high quality or high functioning lenses to begin with. Size I prefer the smaller size, a Canon EOS SL1 looks good but if a Rebel t31, t41, or t51 would be better for what I want that size is fine as well. General Usage I will generally be taking pictures of just whatever I see I plan on being able to just take a stroll around and take pictures of interesting things and just overall learning more about photography and photo editing through experience. I will not be printing out my photos that much as big prints maybe just a few that I like a lot. I want the camera to be pretty versatile so if I want to shoot in low light or sports I can but it doesn't have to be super high class photos or specifically geared towards that just on occasion. As far as lenses right now I am leaning towards all purpose photography so just three lenses that I should get to start off with... for example everyone I know started off with at least a 18-55mm lens. Miscellaneous I'm not that big a fan of Nikon but that might be more to do with the fact that the only Nikon DSLR I have used is our 9+ year old newspaper camera. I am leaning towards the Canon EOS SL1 but I don't know what lenses also I haven't bothered looking to much into Nikon so if you know of a Nikon camera that will suit me better go for it. Just some other things to keep in mind. I am traveling to Europe in July and I want to get a good camera in time to take it with me and take pictures there (so I also wanted to know accessories I should get to keep my camera safe as my carry on luggage). I am going to be living in Indiana for college but I live on the east coast so I will be traveling a lot with the camera it needs to be able to withstand that. Thanks!
