crazy good deal......

I needed the liveview feature (regular digital camera style), thats the only reason I didnt go with a rebel. Canons dont let you see what you are shooting on the screen or do a "super-zoom manual focus" or whatever...

Good camera, we have them at work and they have pretty darn good image quality with a few minor tweaks. But out of the box full-auto settings are better than most anyway.

The current Rebel XSi (450D) now has live view! Relatively poor implementation of it however, the current champs of live view are Sony A300/350. Autofocus quickly using the conventional method, all without flipping the mirror up/down...

though LV is not a feature I think I'll ever use

I am getting very used to not having live view and its only been a day. I love taking pictures with it and can only imagine how much better the new models are.

I picked up a Sandisk Extreme Compact Flash card & FireWire reader last fall. To put it in car terms - this thing does 0-60 in 2 seconds flat. Literally will download a 2 GB card in less than a minute. If anyone is in the market for a CompactFlash reader I give this one five stars. FireWire port required!

I'm sweating through USB downloading from my memory card via the printer

Meh, it works for now. I took some pictures tonight of my baby niece (3 days old) and rapid fire shutter action is pretty critical with such a young life.

IS there a way to hold the button and shoot continuous pictures with my camera?

Yes, there most likely is. I'm pretty sure my Sony A200 has that feature.

Look for the Drive Mode button as pictured on DPReview. You can do 3 frames per second for up to 14 JPEG, or 4 RAW frames.
