DSLR goes Kaput

William B., Newegg
17 September 2008
  • Summary: I do want to say that Newegg has always had stellar customer service when I buy their products. This one is all on Canon.
  • Pros: Great Sensor, Good color, and the RAW format imports to everything I've used so far. Using the menu is a snap. If you shoot manual you'll be impressed at how easy it is to adjust on the fly. Really large view screen. Great Camera for the price.

For something this expensive you'd think Canon would have better customer service. They are going to fix it under wa...

Loved until it stopped working and then it got worse!

Displaced Tarheel, Amazon
12 July 2008
  • Summary: I was excited to get my first DSLR after years of using a 35mm SLR followed by a Canon Powershot S3 IS, a good camera but limited. When I received it, I immediately started using it and was extremely happy with the ease of use,many functions, and the resolution.

Quality issues, solved for now

ArtPhotoMusicNut, Amazon
15 June 2008
  • Summary: I really wanted to like this item. I had a Canon point and shoot from 2005, and got the Rebel XTi (5 stars after 10,000+ snaps of flawless performance) in December 2006. Over the next year and a half, I got several Canon lenses including 2 L lenses.

Spot on Sensor

Christopher C., Newegg
29 December 2007
  • Summary: Did not like the huge picture view on rear, who really uses live view on dslr anyhow.
  • Pros: Fast, more quiet when mirror flips, auto sensor cleaning
  • Cons: mines had some dust or dirt particle either on sensor or the mirror which I couldnt remove, really annonying, will have to take it to a shop now to have it removed. Didnt bother to send it back to newegg, too much problem involved with s/h and just dont have the time. Also, mines didnt have the m...
