Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT

PC Magazine
13 July 2007
  • Conclusion: This versatile, user-friendly camera is a pleasure to use, and will reward those who want to explore more creative avenues without breaking the bank. It shares our Editors' Choice distinction with its big brother, the Canon EOS 20D.
  • Pros: Fantastic range of features, including two auto modes. Superb burst mode. Great value.
  • Cons: Small LCD. Screen is hard to see in bright daylight. No TIFF support.

  • Excerpt: Let's face it, of the three pillars that make up exposure in photography, ISO is the boring one, and the one that spoils the party.Shutter speed is cool. You can freeze time, stopping a droplet of water mid-air as it splashes upward from a glass. You can stretch time with a long shutter speed, blurring clouds, the sea, and even people.

  • Conclusion: So it's clear, the EOS 350D is a great successor to the EOS 300D, it puts right many user complaints, it delivers a smaller and lighter camera which feels better put together and delivers an increase in resolution. Image quality is just as good as the more expensive EOS 20D, if you can live with the differences between the two the money saved could buy you a very nice lens.
  • Pros: Excellent resolution, a clear match for the EOS 20D, Good color, default +1 parameter set means punchy images out of the camera, Noise free 'silky smooth' images at ISO 100, 200 and 400, Very good in-camera image processing, JPEG's almost as good as processed RAW's, Very low noise levels even at ISO 1600, virtually unnoticeable below this, Excellent seven point AF system, fast, good in low light and reliable, Good continuous shooting speed, large buffer size, smart bu...
  • Cons: Opening the CF compartment door shuts camera down, loses any buffered images, LCD monitor is dim unless you turn up brightness setting, New kit lens disappointing at telephoto with smaller apertures, Average automatic white balance performance, still very poor under incandescent light, Controls for ISO, metering, AF mode and White Balance now require extra SET press, Can be awkward to change ISO, metering, AF mode and WB settings in bright daylight, Drive mode button ...

  • Excerpt: Upping the ante from the original EOS 300D, the newer 350D ushers in a 8Mp CMOS sensor, along with Canon's excellent DIGIC II image processing engine. The 350D is also smaller than the 300D, which is a mixed blessing as it can feel a little cramped for larger handed photographers.

  • Conclusion: Canon EOS 350D - Comparison with other EOS cameras Canon made a break-through on the market when introducing the EOS 300D and the cameras were sold like hotcakes. Still there were some critical sounds. The body was considered to be too artificial, and too many functions were disabled. The Canon EOS 350D makes up for it all. It is a particularly mature camera, which lies comfortably in your hand and which features an impressive processing speed.

Canon EOS-350D / Digital Rebel XT with 18-55mm f3.5~5.6 II EF-S lens

Camera Labs
1 December 2005
  • Excerpt: Canon's EOS-350D is the successor to the enormously successful EOS-300D. When it was launched in August 2003, the 300D spear-headed the market for affordable digital SLRs. The 300D was soon joined by several respectable rivals, most notably Nikon's D70, but few managed to compete at its often heavily discounted price point.
  • Pros: Higher resolution than rivals (albeit modest), Natural image processing and low noise, Quick startup and overall handling, Compact and light body
  • Cons: 1.8in screen small by today's standards, Screen slightly dark with default settings, USM lens not in standard bundle, Body may be too small for some

Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT (350D) Experience Report

Outback Photo
11 September 2005
  • Excerpt: These days cameras are available in the stores before reviewers like us even get a sample. In cases like the new Rebel XT/350D we just go forward to buy one as we need the camera for reference anyway (we actually own the Nikon D1, D1x, D100, D70, Canon 10D, Rebel, 1D Mk. II, 1dS and 1Ds Mk. II as we never sell the cameras in time :-) ) . When we got the Rebel (300D) we wrote a little essay and think it is even more true than ever.

Canon EOS Rebel XT / 350D Pro Review

Photography Review
9 August 2005
  • Conclusion: The Rebel XT is a solid performer at a bargain price (for digital photography). Matched with quality EF-S lenses, such as the 17-85mm or the 10-22mm, the XT covers the focal-length gamut and brings true wide angle back within the financial reach of most photographers.
  • Pros: Responsive shutter release., Subjectively quiet, unobtrusive shutter-release sound., Light weight, small size., Fast and accurate autofocus (AF) in low-light, low-contrast situations., Clean, high-quality image files at all ISO levels up to 1600., Those who may need a quiet shutter: wedding, wildlife, documentary photographers., Budget, beginning, and casual photographers who want control and lens selection., Photographers looking for a small, lightweight camera syste...
  • Cons: Grip may be too small for larger hands., Menu navigation is inefficient (too much button pushing)., Rear LCD dim; menus go dim by design., Viewfinder image small and grainy., Focal-length multiplier of 1.6x., Those who may need a quiet shutter: wedding, wildlife, documentary photographers., Budget, beginning, and casual photographers who want control and lens selection., Photographers looking for a small, lightweight camera system to use while traveling/hiking., Pros ...
