Amazon Customer "Always keep your words soft ..., Amazon
6 September 2013
Summary: I bought this used and is extremely happy. It is my first DSLR camera and since I am a novice it would be a good tool to get my feet wet in the use of a professional camera. Also ordered lens so this weekend I will be trying them out because I have a cake for delivery.
Summary: This is a relatively simple camera that produces high quality pictures. I had one, dropped it, and this replaced it. I was glad to find one refurbished on Amazon for a good price. Just in time to capture our last days in town before moving across country
Summary: This camera is nearly a decade old. This review was written in March 2012 and this camera came out in 2003. I bought it because I was interested in beginning photography, and didn't want to spend too much. So I bought an older model to get the feel.
Summary: Overall, this is a great camera, never had a problem with it. This was my first true SLR, and I've taken it many places and taken many pictures with it while learning how to really take pictures versus just pointing and shooting.
Summary: The Rebel XT was the smallest, lightest Canon digital SLR ever made at the time (and perhaps still). For anyone who doesn't want to lug around something large and heavy, but who wants the quality and speed that only a DSLR can deliver, this camera remains a top choice.
Summary: I'm a complete amateur, but I love this camera. It's relatively easy to use and the manual is WAY easier to understand than the one that came with my Powershot S2IS. The only problem I have with it--which I admit could be owner malfunction--is the battery life.
Summary: This review is exactly what I wish someone had explained to me before jumping into the fire with D-SLR. The body gets five stars for meeting the goal of a nicely capable D-SLR that tends to get slight nods over any other, such as Nikon's D40 series, which comes with a reasonable lens.
Summary: I just got this camera as a gift. It came in a timely fashion. I have a Canon EOS 650 so many of the features are similar. I was disappointed that there was no CF card included in the box. There is nothing in the description of the product that states the CF card is sold seperately.
Summary: The Amazon service was prompt and the price was reasonable. The product is much better than expected. Until I discovered the proper placement of my thumb, I made a few mistakes by unintentionally pressing various buttons on the back of the camera, but that was my error.
