Excerpt: "Rebel"noun : 14th century— one who rebels or participates in a rebellion —Rebel With A CauseTheCanon EOS Digital Rebelis Canon's latest marketing step toward domination of the digital camera market.
Conclusion: Canon EOS 300D - Break through SLR camera The Canon is undoubtedly a break through on the field of the digital reflex camera. Only this time not concerning the innovations but the price, and even the price/quality relation.
Summary: The question isn't really about this camera, it's about lenses. When you buy a 35mm SLR camera, you are committing to a lens system. If you follow the lead of most professional photographers, the choice is between Nikon and Canon. At the end of the day the camera is just a box with a shutter.
Excerpt: Leta 1976 sem si kupil prvo Canon kamero. Model AE-1. (O pa kako bi si takrat želel veè. Canon EF, Nikon EL2. Pa ni bilo DINAR smo takrat rekli). Vendar veselja po nakupu AE-1 kar nekaj mesecev ni bilo konec. Vse svoje fotografije na ÈB film so bile posnete z njim.
Canon's EOS 300D SLR Digital Camera Breaks $1000 Barrier
26 November 2003
Summary: Marketing folks for some reason deem it necessary to change product names depending on the geographic location. Canon’s latest digital camera is called the EOS 300D on one side of the Atlantic and "Digital Rebel" on the other, and in Japan it’s known as Kiss Digital.
Canon EOS Digital Rebel Review is based on a production
model. All sample images are unretouched, except
where specified. The
EOS Digital Rebel simply bests the best
of the prosumer digital cameras with its excellent
resolution, virtually noise-free images at high
ISOs, low-light capability,...
Conclusion: The EOS 300D is a formidable camera, not from a feature set point of view. Not from a body finish point of view (which is actually better than I'm sure you're thinking). Not from how its feature set compares to other digital SLR's (although it can certainly hold its own), but rather for what it...
Pros: Excellent resolution, matches EOS 10D, Good color, more contrasty tonal response thanks to default parameter set, Noise free 'silky smooth' images at ISO 100, 200 and 400, Very low noise levels even at ISO 1600, virtually unnoticeable below this, Bundled EF-S 18 - 55 mm is surprisingly good consi...
Cons: Opening the CF compartment door shuts camera down, loses any buffered images, Still a very average automatic white balance performance, we expected more, 'Dumbed down' feature set (forced AI Focus, forced Evaluative metering, etc.), Plastic finish will not be everyone's taste, lightweight compart...
there was one camera that really changed the landscape of digital
photography in 2003, it's the Canon Digital
Rebel. The 6.3 Megapixel Digital Rebel, also known as the
Digital Kiss and EOS-300D (depending on where you live), is the
first digital SLR with a list price of under $1000.
Pros: Excellent image quality, Low noise, even at ISO 400, Robust performance, Much easier to use than previous Canon D-SLRs, All the benefits of a D-SLR: lenses, flashes, and full manual controls, Zero redeye, Incredible value for the money, Long battery life, Nice software bundle
Cons: Average burst mode performance (especially compared to EOS-10D), Many limitations compared to 10D (noted in chart at top of review), Not a fan of the flash as AF-assist lamp system
