CANON EOS REBEL XS 1000D Reviews


CANON EOS REBEL XS 1000D Reviews

I found helpful info at shutterbug.com, photographyblog.com, and digitalreview.ca.

3 Strengths

1. It weighs less than a pound making it the lightest EOS D-SLR to date (www.shutterbug.com)
2. "The self-cleaner comes on every time you power up the XS, but if that does not do the trick there’s a “dust delete data” function as well. You need to run the images through the supplied Canon Digital Photo Professional software to make this work, but it is a kind of auto-spotting mechanism that works well." (www.shutterbug.com)
3. As for Picture Style Settings there are six preset Picture Style settings, Three Custom Picture Style Settings are available. Canon offers additional downloadable "Picture Style Files." (www.digitalreview.ca)

3 Weaknesses

1. One thing "disappointing for experienced photographers is the omission of the Spot metering mode, useful in tricky lighting conditions." (www.photographyblog.com)
2. "Under very bright conditions, the Canon Rebel XS images were affected by lens flare." (www.digitalreview.ca)
3. "Live View is annoyingly difficult to actually turn on, as Canon have inexplicably buried it in the menu system." (www.photographyblog.com)
