Canon EOS 300D, Alternative Firmware Upgrade


We are not calling you to update the firmware in your cameras. You will lose your warranty and all that, though we haven't heard about fatal cases (nevertheless, the forums contain enough calls for help and questions, so you should get down to this...

EOS 300D


At this price, the only reason not to buy the 300D is if you need a smaller camera. Even then, you might consider sending Canon a thank you card, because the 300D’s extraordinary quality and low price should force a re-shuffling in the rest of the market.

Great pictures

Difficult manual focus

A long awaited entry into the digital camera market that more than lives up to expectations.

Canon EOS Digital Rebel review: Canon EOS Digital Rebel


It's tempting to think of Canon's EOS Digital Rebel (known outside the United States as the 300D) as a light version of the EOS 10D . But luckily for consumers, the Rebel is more of a middleweight champion, delivering slightly scaled-back performance...

Aggressive price; excellent, low-noise images; speedy performance; long battery life.

Can't save custom settings; limited metering options; continuous-shooting mode snaps a maximum of four shots.

A low price boosts the Canon EOS Digital Rebel's appeal for amateur film-SLR photographers going digital and high-end snapshooters who want to experiment more.

Canon EOS 300D / Digital Rebel


On 20th August 2003 Canon surprised many people (not least us) when it announced its $899 / €1,099 EOS 300D (Digital Rebel). This digital SLR based on the EOS 10D's superb six megapixel CMOS sensor and image processor in an inexpensive consumer body...

Excellent resolution, matches EOS 10D, Good color, more contrasty tonal response thanks to default parameter set, Noise free 'silky smooth' images at ISO 100, 200 and 400, Very low noise levels even at ISO 1600, virtually unnoticeable below this,...

Opening the CF compartment door shuts camera down, loses any buffered images, Still a very average automatic white balance performance, we expected more, 'Dumbed down' feature set (forced AI Focus, forced Evaluative metering, etc.), Plastic finish will...

The EOS 300D is a formidable camera, not from a feature set point of view.
