Canon Digital Rebel or Canon 300D Digital Rebel, the same?
I am in the process of getting the digital rebel. I was about to order one at a online store that had the 300D model rebel for $789.00 for the kit. Before I purchased it I went to E-Bay. There was a dealer who said there are two different models, one is the digital rebel a USA market model and a 300D digital rebel a overseas or earlier model. Are there two different Rebels out there and the Company that has the great deal is AMPHOTOWORLD.COM.
Has any one had any dealings with this firm. I do not want to throw money away on seconds.

Thanks for any help or advise

It most certainly is not an "earlier model". That is completely bogus.

If you check Steve's review of the digital rebel:

You'll see that they are same camera. I know that one of the names is used in the US, and one in the rest of the world. I believe the Digital Rebel is the US name, but I'm not sure.

As for the company, it isn't listed on, so that would scare me. Personally, I stick with the good reputable companies and don't bottom feed. Often the lower end stores are a ripoff (they do a strong push to sell overpriced add-ons, they pretend it isn't in stock unless you buy things separately that should actually come with it. Stuff like that.)

I would recommend or B&H is the largest seller of photo and video equipment in the entire US. They have a very good rep and great prices.
