  • Conclusion: Having helped create the 'affordable' DSLR, Canon has taken a while to respond to the latest, comparatively wallet-friendly offerings from the likes of Nikon and Sony. The 1000D is a pretty convincing response - it does just about everything it needs to do, and everything it does, it does well. It can produce great images at any of its ISO settings and, viewed as a whole, makes a great first DSLR.
  • Pros: Great results even with default settings, Good tonal response and dynamic range, Picture styles provides good control over image output (and prove consistent across models), Typical Canon CMOS noise-free images, remain detailed even at high sensitivities, Optional High ISO NR removes all chroma noise without too much detail loss, Comprehensive bundled software adds to camera's value, Offers most features that a first-time users will find themselves needing, Reasonable...
  • Cons: Continuous shooting ability in RAW very limited (small buffer and low speed), Average automatic white balance performance, still very poor under incandescent light, Comparatively small viewfinder, Limited exposure compensation range (+/- 2.0 EV), Live view only useful for specific applications, Contrast detect AF so slow it's only useful in a fixed tripod situation, Metering can overexpose when subjected to high-contrast conditions, Default JPEG output may be a little...

  • Conclusion: Canon EOS 1000D SLR camera review The EOS 1000D is Canon's convincing answer to the competition, and it again places them in the highly competitive segment of the entry-level D-SLR camera. It are only minor details that make the difference between the EOS 450D and the Canon 1000D, however, the price will have to make the real difference.

Canon EOS 1000D / Rebel XS

Camera Labs
1 August 2008
  • Summary: Canon EOS 1000D / Rebel XS verdict When Canon first announced the EOS 450D / Rebel XSi in January 2008, most assumed it would be the natural successor to the best-selling EOS 400D / Rebel XTi, but the older model was kept on as an entry-level proposition. Then in June 2008 Canon announced the EOS 1000D / XS as its new entry-level DSLR and the true successor to the 400D / XTi.
  • Pros: Image quality up with the best 10 Mpixel DSLRs., Accurate Live View with contrast-AF option., Kit includes stabilised lens., PC remote control software supplied.
  • Cons: Live View not as fuss-free as Sony A300., Screen fixed in position, unlike A300., Slow RAW continuous shooting., Some features downgraded from 400D / XTi.

Canon EOS 1000D review

PC Advisor

  • Summary: Canon has been losing ground to arch rival Nikon of late when it comes to producing high-performance, good-value DSLRs. So will the budget-priced Canon EOS 1000D redress the balance?

  • Excerpt: The latest D-SLR from Canon, the EOS 1000D, represents a new line in Canon's D-SLR range, hence the breakaway from the usual three-digit naming convention. The EOS 1000D is intended to build upon the success of the EOS 400D and, although Canon is keen to stress the 1000D isn't a direct replacement for the 400D, the older model will be phased out over time. January 2008 saw the unveiling of the 450D, so will another competitively-priced Canon D-SLR confuse the market?
