  • Is this camera good for a novice?

    I mean I have experiece with taking pictures, but I don't want to be overwhelmed with features and such... is it easy to use?

    Answered by nilufer2 2009-03-20:

    The 1000D places itself somewhere between the 400D and 450D. If you are familiar with the basic workings of a dSLR, then you should not have problems navigating your way around the 1000D. It takes many of the new features of the 450D and presents them in a lighter, less expensive format. The 1000D however does not have wireless remote release like the 450D and 400D, but does allows for custom ‘My Menu’ settings.
