3 February 2010
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.
Excerpt: March, 2005
This is a field report on the newCanon EOS Digital Rebel XT(as it's known in the US and Canada), or the350Das it's known in Europe.(We won't mention that the same camera is called theKiss n Digitalin Japan).For simplicity sake I'll just call it the350XTfrom now on.
Excerpt: Two and a half years is a long time in the world of digital SLRs, but despite its age, the 8-MP Canon Digital Rebel XT still gives more recent models a run for their money, especially because many of them are limited to just six megapixels.
Excerpt: In 2003, Canon opened the floodgates for affordable digital single lens reflex (D-SLR) cameras with the 6-megapixel Digital Rebel, the first digital camera with an interchangeable lens for under $1,000 dollars.
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.

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...
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
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.
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.

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., Budge...
