Custom Parameter Sets

The EOS 350D has the same level of adjustment as the EOS 20D; two preset sets and up to three user defined sets. You get five levels of adjustment (plus or minus two levels) for contrast, saturation, color tone and sharpness. Some of the adjustments could have benefited from a wider latitude of adjustment and perhaps even more steps.

Image parameter adjustments

  • Contrast: -2, -1, 0, +1, +2
  • Saturation: -2, -1, 0, +1, +2
  • Color Tone: -2, -1, 0, +1, +2
  • Sharpness: -2, -1, 0, +1, +2

Contrast adjustment

Adjusting the tone alters the shape of the 'S curve' used to map the linear image data captured by the sensor into the correct gamma. A lower contrast setting maintains more of the original data's dynamic range but leads to a flatter looking image. A higher contrast setting stretches the grayscale (dark to light) of the image and could lead to clipping of both shadow detail and highlights.

Color saturation adjustment

Saturation adjustment allows you to control the strength of color in the final image. The latitude of adjustment in this case is probably about right without getting into really de-saturated images or over saturated color which may channel clip.

Color tone adjustment

Color tone subtly adjusts the hue of the image, a negative setting makes color appear more reddish, a positive setting makes color appear more yellowish.

As I know the XT can simultaneously record raw and high-quality JPEG files, whereas the original Rebel's raw-plus-JPEG mode could capture only lower-quality JPEGs. You can also override the automatic seven-point AiAF focusing--a good thing, given its occasional unreliability--but doing so requires first pushing a button to initialize the process, then navigating to one of the seven points using either the directional buttons or the main dial. It's a little clunky, but you can actually streamline the process by changing the camera's custom settings to eliminate the first step.
What do you think about it?

Canon EOS Rebel line of DSLR cameras are the best for those wanting to get into more advanced photography. The main reason for this is that they allow full manual controls and the interchangeable lenses. These allow you to change so much of how the cameras functions in different lighting situations.The EOS Rebel T5 is a fast camera, has a huge bright 3.0-inch LCD monitor and exceptional autofocus with a 9-point AF system.One can take beautiful pictures automatically.

Bought this version (Rebel XT) for about $350 two years ago, refurbished. Still works well and has a good image quality.
