    Hey guys, my youngest is 16 and is looking to get into photography. She already has a great eye and I was wanting to get her a pretty good camera for Christmas. I was wondering if any of y'all had any advice and suggestions for a camera that's economical to moderate but easy/fast to get into action with???
    As always your info is greatly appreciated.

    The Canon Rebel T7 bundle at Sams is a good deal, and a damn good camera.

    Nikon cool pic. It has auto function and a 42 zoom. The zoom is crazy. I took it to Alaska last year and would spot mountain goats with my Binos then zoom in with my camera. I think I paid 500 for it at Walmart back in 2013. I love it and would buy another if this one breaks. This is my first camera I’ve owned. Great for beginners because I’m an idiot and can run it. I’m sure she’d have no issues.

    We have the Canon Rebel, T6 I think. We bought it, along with an extra 60X zoom. As childers said, the zoom on these things is phenomenal.... You can operate it on auto, or fully manual.... Also does 1080 video. Great cameras, and Canon is the brand......

    Canon EOS Rebel T7i 24.2MP Digital SLR Camera Bundle with EF-S 18-55mm STM Lens, 55-250mm Lens, 32GB SD Card, and Camera Bag
    I have been doing wildlife photography for over ten years. This bundle at Sams club is a nice setup. The 55-250 is one of Canons lower class lens that really delivers. The lens in this kit also have image stabling which is awesome in lower light. PRICE 950 BUCKS
