Canon EOS 1000D digital SLR

 

The 1000D is Canon's new 10MP entry-level DSLR, but can it win back the buyers?

Live view, Lightweight, Speedy operation, Good high ISO performance, Good image quality

Overpriced, Noticeably plastic build, Slow live view focussing, No video

Canon EOS 1000D review

 

Canon's splashed into shallow end of the DSLR pool again with an entry-level model based on the 450D. Will it win gold or need water wings?

An amazing entry-level snapper with plenty of room for growth before your creative juices overflow

Canon EOS 1000D DSLR camera

 

Canon's range of DLRs seem to have gone through something of a phase shift, moving the specs up the range and allowing Canon to create a new entry-level point for the new digital EOS 1000D, under the current EOS 450D. There may be a little...

Live View, SD card compatibility, great quality images, focusing and colour

Live View feels like an after-thought, price

With the EOS 1000D coming with the pedigree it does from the Canon fold, you can’t go far wrong in terms of usability and image quality: out of the box the EOS 1000D is easy to use and delivers great results.

Canon EOS 1000D DSLR camera - First Look

 

What happens when your entry-level DSLR camera ceases to be entry-level? You launch another one of course, but can Canon's new entry-level DSLR appeal to beginners? We had a quick play at the UK launch. It's clear that Canon has found itself in a...

10 megapixels, SD Card, LiveView

Not as feature packed as the 450D, price

Canon EOS 1000D review

 

Entry-level camera that's packed full of features to entice D-SLR newcomers

Incredibly light, IS kit lens, bright and bold LCD display, easy to use, features Live View

Only complaint is the plastic body and lack of thumb grip

In the long-run, this is a guaranteed hit

Canon EOS 1000D

 

labs test), the EOS 450D cost £75 to £200 more than rivals, but its superiority made it worth the extra

Enters the price war with guns blazing. A superb all-rounder, attractively priced.

Canon EOS 1000D + 18-55mm IS lens review

 

The EOS 1000D marks the beginning of a new product line, pitched below Canon's previous entry-level model, the 450D (see page 134).

Its performance in general use, accessible controls, plentiful features and image quality make it a great buy.

Canon EOS 1000D review

 

Canon has been losing ground to arch rival Nikon of late when it comes to producing high-performance, good-value digital SLRs (DSLRs). So will the budget-priced Canon EOS 1000D redress the balance?

Anyone choosing the Canon EOS 1000D as their first DSLR is best advised to opt for both camera and 18-55mm image stabilised zoom, as tested, for just £80 more than the body-only price. As typical with a DSLR you'll have to provide your own memory card....

Canon Rebel XS review

 

The baby brother to the Rebel XSi , the Canon EOS Rebel XS is the typical, almost-identical, but slightly less-powerful, version of that camera.

Excellent photo quality for its class; solid performance.

Maximum ISO of 1,600; no spot meter; annoying, in-viewfinder, focus-point display.

The Canon EOS Rebel XS is a good entry-level dSLR, but only its photo quality stands out among the competition.
