Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT
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: 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.
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. Now, the company has blown away the competition with the introduction of the new 8 MP Digital Rebel XT. I know Nikon fans will groan but this fact is hard to deny, even with the introduction of the slightly enhanced 6 MP Nikon 70s. Although you can still...
Pros: One of the best and most affordable D-SLRs available
Cons: Smallish LCD screen tends to wipe out in strong sunlight
Summary: With its class-leading, eight-megapixel resolution, large continuous-shooting buffer, excellent auto-focus, superb feature set and accessible metering modes, the Canon 350D is a brilliant camera The handling could be better – some of the controls are awkwardly placed – and image quality is just a tad less than exceptional. great camera. have had for just over a year.
Excerpt: It’s a fact, not all professional photographers use professional-level cameras. Often there’s sound commercial reasoning behind the choice: why risk an expensive digital SLR when one costing much less will do the job?
Pros: Small, light and fast handling, the new bargain-priced, entry-level EOS 350D provides class-leading resolution that will appeal to a broad spectrum of users.
Cons: Some idiosyncratic menu operation, as well as a small 1.8-inch monitor, do little to spoil the overall effect.
Conclusion: De grootste concurrent is natuurlijk de D70s van Nikon en de verschillen zijn erg klein. Het is een nek aan nek race. Wie de Canon EOS 350D koopt heeft in ieder geval een klasse product. Een camera waar veel plezier mee beleefd gaat worden. De camera is makkelijk mee te nemen, werkt heerlijk snel en produceert prima beelden. En dat voor minder geld dan zijn voorganger. Het wordt echt leuk nu.
