***I just realized I posted this in the wrong forum but am unsure how to move it...Mods pls move and accept my apologies!!***

I want to get a camera to take nice pictures of my 1 year old son.  My brain is maxed out as Im doing immigration paperwork that needs to be mailed out TODAY and watching my son who is running around nuts everywhere, so I dont have time to research this out like crazy, as I usually do.

Can someone PLEASE tell me which Rebel is the best deal out of the ones listed below? They may even be the same kit...I am just not knowledgable enough to understand the slight differences in wording... I am on a very tight budget so unfortunately I can only spend around $300 so these are the best I can do for now.

Thank you so much! (I live on the border of US and Canada so that is why there are a couple CDN links there...the exchange rate is pretty much the same at the moment)

If the seller is reliable, worth the price. However, if you want to do videos too, the most suitable camera is SL1 (100D) with 18-55 STM lens kit.

You might consider a refurbished camera directly from Canon.  They have some specials on now.  They offer a 1 year warranty, same as new, and you can add certain refurb lenses for half price.  They are not great lenses, but you can sell them for a profit if you don't like them.

Don't know anything about the suppliers, but assuming all 3 are equally reliable number 1 looks like the best deal.  Number 2 is for the same thing but costs $30 more, and the lens on number 3 isn't as good.  But check shipping costs.
