Reviews and Problems with Canon EOS 1000D / Rebel XS / Kiss F
Showing 1-10 of 14
Great for beginners
19 December 2011
Excerpt: This is my first DSLR and I am in love! As a beginner who acme from crappy point and shoots and cell phone cameras this thing takes great pictures right out of the box. Even on full auto the XS will take better photos than P&S cameras. And once one gets into the fundamentals of photography the Rebel can do it all.
Summary: This is an amazing camera. I bought it thinking that my lenses from a film camera would work. They did not. The return date had passed when I finaly got a lens and starte shooting. It will take 3 or 4 shots and then I get an error 99 and have to remove the battey. Would not buy from this dealer again.
This is a review about the product I received from the seller.

Summary: The camera body itself is fine but the lens that came with it was damaged. I was led to believe the whole camera including the lens were in perfect working condition. It was to be given as a present and ended up having to buy an another lens. The return process was just too long itself. Having said that, the delivery was good and swift.
Summary: I have owned three Canon cameras. The shutter mechanism stopped working after several years on the first and I had to replace it - which meant investing also in a new set of lenses. Toward the end of 2008 I changed to a digital EOS 1000d. It gave one constant problem experienced by others: the flash kept popping up. Finally in October 2011, after taking just over 600 shots, the camera "died".
Summary: Had the camera for 2 months now, really liked it at first, excellent results from the I.S. lenses. BUT it now has the infamous "Error 99" message and has stopped working completely, it appears this is a well known fault usually a shutter problem (after checking battery, card, contacts etc etc etc) This now makes 3 out of 4 Canon cameras I have purchased in the last 3 years that have faults.
Summary: Canon`s Positionierung auf dem DSLR Markt ist klar definiert. Canon setzt auf die Profimodelle und stellt abgespeckte Versionen für den Konsumermarkt her. Diese Politik ist vertretbar und akzeptabel. Und wenn man das weiß, stellt man an eine 1000D auch keine großen Erwartungen. Es ist nur sehr schade wenn diese geringen Erwartungen auch noch enttäuscht werden. Eigentlich verspricht die Kamera alles was man braucht, halten tut sie davon leider aber nicht viel.
