Richard, Cowbridge Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The Canon EOS 1000D is superb DSLR! For all the features it possesses and excellent image reproduction, it is a bargain! I have tried lots of creative photography using the manual settings and it always delivers. It was a natural choice for me as it allowed to me retain all my lenses from my EOS 50E.
Bad points:
Still looking.

Live view very good but slow to focus really requires tripod. Built in colour filters for monochrome is a great tool.

Menu is difficult to navigate requires perseverance to use many of the built in functions

Simple to use in auto but can be used with other settings to produce professional looking pictures. Big plus point is that I'm able to use all my lenses from my old EOS500 SLR.

The gateway to your creativity.

10.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor
A 10.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor captures enough detail to make A4-size prints, even when cropping your image. Canons CMOS sensor technology also ensures crisp, sharp images even in low-light conditions.

Up to 3 frames per second
For dramatic mid-action shots, the EOS 1000D allows continuous shooting of large JPEG images at speeds of up to 3 frames per second, until the memory card is full. With a 2GB card, this lets you shoot up to 514 images without a pause.

7-point wide-area AF
A wide-area Auto Focus system uses 7 separate focusing points to lock onto subjects fast. The central focus point enables focusing even under low-light or low-contrast conditions.

EOS Integrated Cleaning System
Canons built-in dust prevention system guards images against the effects of dust in three ways: reducing dust generated inside the camera, shaking dust from the sensor each time the camera is turned on or off, and mapping stubborn dust spots for removal with the provided Digital Photo Professional software.

2.5" LCD with Live View mode
In Live View mode, use the bright 2.5 LCD to frame and take shots from awkward angles. During playback, the LCD provides detailed review of shots, and features a wide viewing angle for easy sharing with friends.

Large viewfinder
A large, bright viewfinder allows framing of subjects even in the brightest conditions.

DIGIC III processing
Canons cutting-edge DIGIC III processor as used in professional EOS models – delivers rapid operation, accurate colour reproduction, fast start-up times, and low power consumption.

SD/SDHC memory card compatible
Shooting to the popular SD/SDHC memory card formats, the EOS 1000D is ideal for those who already own SD-compatible devices.

Total image control
Take control over the look and feel of your images with easy to use Picture Style presets. Contrast, sharpness and saturation can be customized in-camera or with Canons comprehensive software suite, supplied with the EOS 1000D.

Compact, ultra-lightweight body
The smallest and lightest Digital EOS model yet, the EOS 1000D weighs just 450g – and is ergonomically designed for comfortable handling.

EF lenses and accessories
The EOS 1000D is compatible with the complete range of EF/EF-S lenses, Speedlite EX flash units and EOS system accessorie
