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.
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.
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.
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.
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)...
