  • Summary: The EOS Rebel XS is the manufacturer's cheapest DSLR camera, and it is very much aimed as a "first " camera for photographers looking to advance beyond the typical point and shoot.

DP Review
18 September 2009
  • 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.
  • 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 n...
  • 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, C...

Canon EOS Rebel XS Review

LAPTOP Magazine

  • Summary: If ever a camera could overtake the D40 in the budget DSLR category, it's the Canon EOS Rebel XS. It offers fast speeds, an easier interface, higher resolution, an automatic sensor-cleaning system, and often-comparable (and always good) image quality.

  • 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.

Canon EOS 1000D / Rebel XS

Camera Labs

  • 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.
  • 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.

  • 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...

Canon EOS 1000D review

Digital Arts
18 September 2009
  • Excerpt: The compact, lightweight 10-megapixel 1000D is the most affordable route into the Canon EOS system, which offers an unmatchable 60-plus compatible lenses. It may be longer in the tooth than the others here, but with street prices well under £500 for a body and an image-stabilised 18-55mm lens –...
  • Pros: Good quality consistent results using kit lens; easy to use and solidly built; fair value when bought with image-stabilised zoom
  • Cons: Live View initially buried; max ISO could be higher; no in-body stabilisation

  • Excerpt: Canon's most recent SLR may cause some alarm among owners of the EOS 450D, the company's previous entry-level SLR. The arrival of a new model called the 1000D, no less, may lead them to believe that their new toy has been rendered obsolete by a camera several generations more advanced, but names can...

  • Summary: It’s easy for pros to sneer at any line’s entry-level offering, but this is a superb starter DSLR, especially for anyone making the leap from a compact. Be aware, however, that Canon doesn’t own this market segment anymore; if you can get a good deal on a rival, take it.
