Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT review

 

Intro The Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT (known as the EOS 350D outside the United States) represents a leap forward from its predecessor, the original Digital Rebel, offering more than one might expect from the addition of a couple consonants to the name....

The Canon Digital Rebel XT's image quality leads its class; competitive price; ultrafast start-up time; very responsive.

The Canon Rebel XT's lightweight plastic body isn't ergonomically satisfying; no spot meter; limited continuous-shooting mode, unimpressive kit lens; 1.6X lens-conversion factor.

The Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT is an exceptionally small and lightweight camera designed for amateur digital SLR photographers, but it delivers the responsiveness and image quality you'd expect from a semipro model.

Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT

 

Megapixels: 8, Media Format: CompactFlash, Type: D-SLR, Maximum Resolution: 3456 x 2304 pixels

Fantastic range of features, including two auto modes. Superb burst mode. Great value.

Small LCD. Screen is hard to see in bright daylight. No TIFF support.

This versatile, user-friendly camera is a pleasure to use, and will reward those who want to explore more creative avenues without breaking the bank. It shares our Editors' Choice distinction with its big brother, the Canon EOS 20D.

Highly Recommended!

Canon EOS 350D / Digital Rebel XT

 

On 20th August 2003 Canon dropped a bomb into the digital SLR market with the six megapixel sub-$1,000 EOS 300D (Digital Rebel). Eighteen months later and just in time for the largest trade show of the year (PMA 2005) Canon has revealed the successor...

Excellent resolution, a clear match for the EOS 20D, Good color, default +1 parameter set means punchy images out of the camera, Noise free 'silky smooth' images at ISO 100, 200 and 400, Very good in-camera image processing, JPEG's almost as good as...

Opening the CF compartment door shuts camera down, loses any buffered images, LCD monitor is dim unless you turn up brightness setting, New kit lens disappointing at telephoto with smaller apertures, Average automatic white balance performance, still...

So it's clear, the EOS 350D is a great successor to the EOS 300D, it puts right many user complaints, it delivers a smaller and lighter camera which feels better put together and delivers an increase in resolution.

Responds quickly ; Compact size

Case looks and feels fragile

Fast action, compact size, and great imaging make the Digital Rebel XT a top pick among inexpensive digital SLRs.

Canon EOS Rebel XT / 350D

 

Canon expects the Digital SLR market to double in less than two years - largely because of the Canon EOS Rebel XT / 350D (Reuters). That is a high expectation for a new model. The 300D was a huge hit, and after using the Canon EOS Rebel XT / 350D, I...

Canon EOS 350D’nin rakip modeli hiç şüphesiz Nikon D70. Bu iki kamera arasında çok az fark var. Başa baş giden bu iki modelden Cann EOS 350D’yi satın aldığınızda üst kalite bir ürün satın almış olmanın hazzını yaşayacaksınız. Son derece keyifli bir...

Canon EOS 350D review

 

As a bolt from the blue Canon introduced an affordable digital SLR camera back in 2003. This way Canon stole a march on arch-competitor Nikon, who immediately struck back with the D70. Beginning of this year Canon introduced the successor of the Canon...

Canon made a break-through on the market when introducing the EOS 300D and the cameras were sold like hotcakes. Still there were some critical sounds. The body was considered to be too artificial, and too many functions were disabled. The Canon EOS...

Canon EOS 350D Digital Rebel Digital Camera Review: Overview and Highlights

 

The Canon Digital Rebel XT builds on the huge success of the original Digital Rebel, a camera that literally turned the digital camera world on its ear when it was first introduced. A six-megapixel digital SLR that sold with a lens for less than...

Excellent resolution (but the increase over 6 megapixel models isn't really all that significant), Superb tonal range, excellent shadow detail, with minimal image noise., Really excellent high-ISO performance, excellent noise control, Significant speed...
