Karl, Doncaster Keen amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I have been waiting to dip my toe in with a DSLR but have been put off by the cost and complexity, I need not have worried this has all the functions of a point and click and add-on’s of an SLR, but not a massive cost, its real fun getting around the functions, I have been taking pictures of flowers to get to grips with it, everyone has said WOW when they have seen them, what more can I say? You like taking good pictures get one, good snapping!

Good points:
Does exactly what it says on the tin. Full manual mode sounds complicated at first but actually very easy so well worth diving in and moving beyond auto shoot.

John, Harpenden Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Particularly useful for taking pictures in low light situations, such as museums where flash is prohibited. The image stabiliser seems to work very well, and some of my pictures in the recent exhibition of Tutankhamun replicas in Manchester bear comparison with professional photos in books.

Ideally suited as an entry level camera
Great value for money

A little platicky in feel, but certainly not a show shopper, to be expected for an entry level camera.

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. Canon’s 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

Canon’s 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

Canon’s 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 Canon’s 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 accessories.
