Canon Digital Rebel / EOS 300D Review - DigitalCameraInfo

Mar 27, 2005 | Category: Canon Digital Rebel / EOS 300D

Canon Digital Rebel / EOS 300DAfter a year on the market, Canon’s answer to the sub-$1000 digital SLR demand still holds its own. It defined the newest amateur class of digital SLR cameras and paved the way for many cameras to come. Bringing along some of the best qualities of the Canon EOS 10D, such as the CMOS sensor, 6 Megapixel resolution, and 35 zone metering system, and adding choice features such as light weight, portability, and great value, the Canon EOS Digital Rebel brings a lot to the table. I would recommend this camera to people who want a quality digital SLR camera, affordable pricing, and a reputable name. It is probably not the best choice for someone competing with high-end professional photographers, but it is certainly a stepping-stone into the greater world of photography. If you’re not in competition with the big dogs and would like a smart camera to take great photos and challenge your abilities, I wouldn’t cross the Canon EOS Digital Rebel off your list. If you’re stumped on how you feel about the Canon EOS Digital Rebel compared to the Nikon D70, what’s stopping you from running out and putting them in your hands? It might come down to how it feels to you.

Canon Digital Rebel / EOS 300D Review - Pocket-lint

Feb 08, 2005 | Category: Canon Digital Rebel / EOS 300D

Canon Digital Rebel / EOS 300DFor all intents and purposes, the Canon Digital Rebel / EOS 300D is a paired down Canon EOS 10D. The limitation this camera has (by choice through the software) the 10D doesn’t. That’s not to say that this is a bad camera. Far from it. But when Canon decided to be bold enough to go for the entry-level DSLR market, corners had to be cut to get the price down to something very attractive. Those corners are most notable in the plastic casing, however while the 300D offers a 10D LE on the features, the picture quality is just as good.

Our recommendation would be to stretch to the 10D if you can (again enjoying a price slash since the 20D hit the streets). If you are new to the DSLR market and a Canon user then the ability to use your lenses on this model will certainly the main draw. If, however, you are completely new to this level of camera and don’t have a stack of lenses already, then it really has to be the Nikon D70 for its overall performance and superior handling.
