Canon EOS Rebel (300D)

Review Date: Feb 6, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $840.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: Fast&acurate focus, very low noise until ISO 400, still good at 800, light, nice colors, nice handling
Limited buffer, noise at higher ISO, some features blocked

The Canon 300D was my first digital SLR. I was very impressed with it, especially compare to the previous digital P&S in terms of focus speed and accuracy - it is very ok even in low light.
The colors are very good, better comparing to 20D.
The camera is light, easy to cary with you everywhere (of course not like a P&S)
The limited image buffer - only 4 images - was an issue for me several times.
The initial limited features is a shame for Canon. The shame became bigger when Wasia firmware was released... One of the first things for me was to install the Wasia firmware and I recomend it to everybody.
In conclusion this is a very good camera in its class.
