I've used this camera for 2 years and have taken it in all types of conditions (mildly humid/wet/rain) to hot and dry places, dusty and it never had a problem. It has been a very capable and trusty camera for most of the situations I've used it in. Having performance ranging from decent to very good in abundent light I recommend this camera for portraits, landscape, slow sport photography, animal, documentary, timelapse and travel. Due to its reduced maximum ISO value I do NOT recommend this ...

My first digital reflex camera. It was actually amazing starting to play with all those manual modes and becoming familiar with concepts like depth of field in a very practical way.

This was wonderful starter DSLR for me. It introduced me to the digital photography world and takes great all around photos. It allows a new user to learn and then advance to using the manual settings. Price is what drove me to purchase this camera origanally in a kit. It was a 10mp entry level camera that I could learn with and not break the budget. I would recommend it a good camera for students to start out with, instead sinking a ton of cash into a model you can upgrade to later. I used ...

I was supposed to buy 500d but my budget was a bit tight that time. This canon 1000d was surprisingly amazing I can do magic shots with it.......it was so simple for me to use this camera because before I was using slr camera w/film and it's not as easy as this dslr................. in short all you have to do is to get familiar with the functions and with the mix of your artistic shots and your ready to go Problems: no ir remote for shutters

Well, what can I say? This is my main work camera, and for the price, I can't really complain. It produces good, nice, clean pictures, though I will avoid ISO 800+. And it works with higher end flash gun models, and wireless triggers. The build quality is good enough, but remember, if you attach your 70-200 F/2.8 on it all day, your hands will ache all over the following day. Screen quality and sharpness is nothing to write home about, and I have trouble reviewing my pictures under a bright sky.

Coming from a Fujifilm bridge and a few film cameras, which all could focus the cutting edge of a sword either manually or automatically, my biggest gripe about this camera body is the lack of more focus points. Having only seven makes auto-focusing a trial and error process, and without the focusing lens found in some of my older film cameras, i find manual focusing on this canon just as chalenging as the auto mode. don't get me wrong, i love the camera! the color palette is more realistic ...

I purchased this camera in Feb-2010 in a promotion having the 18-55 and 75-300 lens. Overall image quality is excelent, it has a superb low-light performance. (ISO 800, 1600 with relative low noise.) I dont like the default "greyish" soft colors (low saturation for my taste); no problem, I created my picture style with high color saturation, contrast and sharpness and got what I like. Problems: Movie missing. Low Value for money (today): the evolution since 2008 has been large, rendering ...

Had this camera for 8 months. For $499 it is a great camera for anyone wanting to build a Canon system. The kit lens is great. The 430ex II flash matched well. Live View works great with all but the fast action shots. It works real well with the EF 70-300 IS. I gave it a 4.5 on features, only because of no "spot metering". The only reason I gave it away to family member is to move to a T2i so I could gain a little better low light IQ and no other reason. It is a very user friendly DSLR. I ...

This is my first serious camera and I love it. I've had it for about five or six months and it's perfect for what I do. The features are excellent and the buttons are conveniently placed so as to make shooting and changing modes while shooting. I would definitely recommend this as an entry-lever SLR. There are plenty of lenses available and this camera can easily transition from a beginner to a more advanced tool. Problems: None.
