Excellent Camera

 

I just got this camera about a month ago. I love it so far. It is fairly simple to use and takes great quality pictures, yet allows you to be a bit creative with your photography.

One thing that I didn't really like was that I had to go out and buy a memorty card to take pictures. I wish there was at least a starter memory card with the camera so that you could start taking pictures right away.

A Great Entry DSLR Camera

 

This is a great entry level DSLR, not so complex that you won't be able to use it, and not so simple that you will out grow it too soon. In combination with a good tripod, and A skilled eye you will take some amazing photos.

This was my first DSLR camera and I absolutely love it. It definitly has a learning curve if you are coming off of a point and shoot camera, but once you learn all the features and tweaks it will take some of the nicest pictures you have ever seen. I...

In my opinion, this camera is pretty much perfect. However one thing that I didn't like when I first got it was that you can't use the LCD as a view finder. You must use the eye piece. Now, I'm completely used to it and if I were given a P&S camera I...

DIDN'T EVEN HAVE TO READ INSTRUCTIONS

 

I HAVE BEEN A CANON OWNER SINCE MY FIRST AE1, 10 YEARS AGO BOUGHT A SONY AND GAVE MY AE1 AWAY. DIGITAL SLR'S WERE NOT AFFORDABLE AT THAT TIME, BUT I WISH THAT I HAD WAITED. THIS CAMERA IS EVERY BIT AS EASY TO USE AS MY OLD AE1, BUT AUTO FOCUS, GOOD JOB...

QUICK AUTO FOCUS, EASY TO PROGRAM, LIGHT WEIGHT, CAN BE USED RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX. ZOOM LENS AVERAGE BUT THE PRICE ISN'T BAD, BATTERY LIFE BETTER THAN AVERAGE,

NONE SO FAR

Launched a career

 

Truly, I was so stunned by the picture quality of the images I got with this camera after returning from a trip to Ireland, that I was hooked on photography. Now I'm taking all kinds of photo jobs. I'm glad I didn't get the kit lens, but instead...

Small viewfinder and review screen.

Best Sub-$1,000 DSLR you can have..

 

From what I tested with my friend's kit lens, the 17-55 kit lens is fine for wide angled shots for beginners. You can take some decent shots with it, but will recommend a better lens down the road.

I bought this camera XT(body only) from Dell during awhile ago during their 10%-15% electronics sale, and got the Canon Rebate at the same time. No other local store or online store at the time could compete. Dell gave a heck of a deal. I've been using...

Nothing really, but eventually even with the battery grip, I'm tending to want a larger body now a days. So not really a con, since I new it was a smaller body compared to the 20D and 30D at time of purchase.

digital rebel xt rocks

 

I thought this camera was great I found its got a lot of buttons configured in just the right places so you are not searching through menues to find the common features like I have experienced with some other cameras. Its easy for anyone to use pro or...

Great picture quality, easy to use, fast image capture, versitile, many great lenses and accessories to choose, better than other cameras I have seen for low light situations.

Not many, it is a bit pricey when geting lenses but they are well worth it.

Excellent D-SLR camera for the consumer.

 

My wife and I wanted a Digital SLR as we were tired of missing photo opportunities because of the delay on a standard point and shoot. I started watching for deals on D-SLRs and was fortunate enough to catch a coupon opportunity through Dell. Sure I...

Lightweight and compact for an SLR

Wish it had the wheel feature like the 20D for reviewing images
