Hey! You should know that Canon has released a newer version of this product: the Canon EOS Rebel T3/1100D.

Canon Digital Rebel XS/1000D

We've given the XS a grade of A-.

Editor's Review

The new Digital Rebel XS (EOS 1000D) is Canon's response to the entry-level DSLR competition. Even though it's a watered-down version of the 450D, the 1000D retains some of its best features: 'Live View' previewing, high ISO noise reduction, and including both JPEG and RAW file formats. More affordable than the 450D, the 1000D is another option for first-time DSLR users.

Thumbs Ups for Canon (Khurram — 09/18/2009)

My XS is superb, performance is awsome. But the only drawback i felt in the past two months is the 7 point AF which should have been 9 atleast. Anyhow, buy an "L" class lens and you dont have to worry on focus issues.

Finally went digital (Billy Schwinn — 07/13/2009)

I love this camera. It gives me everything I want at a reasonable price. Many lens choices and a lightweight camera. The photographs are incredible. Can be fully automatic for perfect point and shoot or everything on this camera can be adjusted manually.

Waiting to break (Richard — 04/20/2009)

I owned my xs for 1 month and began getting a generic 99 error message which could only be fixed by pulling the battery, and would return after the camera went into power save mode. This seems to be a regular problem with the XS.

Sent it away to Canon 5 weeks ago and they're still "waiting for parts". Apparently Canon repair centres don't stock the parts to repair their cameras.

Customer service has been less than sympathetic, seemingly confused that I was bothering them on the two occasions I asked about turn around time.

Canon - Sharapova and Avril were right (Maxim — 03/29/2009)

Rebel XS is hot like the afformentioned senioritas. Easy to use, better sensor than the D60. More detail visible compared to D60. Quicker startup, very ergonomic. The biggest plus with this camera is that: its made in Japan!!! You get japanese factory quality. All nikons excluding the 5-7k camera bodies are made in thailand. This was a big seller for me, in favor of the Canon. Great battery life. Lens compatibility from the past. Nikon changed their lens mechanisms a few years ago, so you cannot use AF on their older lenses. Buy this! The only draw back is the grip could be a bit more comfy. If you are thinking D60 - think Rebel XS. It blows it out of the water. The best semi-pro DSLR for a beginner!
