Canon EOS 300D (EOS Digital Rebel / EOS Kiss Digital) review

The first 300D had problems focusing so I returned it and got a replacement. Pictures were fuzzy at 4 - 6 feet at f8 or f11.

The new one works great. Everything you could ask for given the price.

As the camera and all the functions worked, I downloaded the "hack firmware" from Russia.

I now can:

- adjust brightness of the flash,
- engage the continuous focus in the creative modes,
and
- also use ISO 3200.

This makes the camera function similar to the 10D at a much cheaper price.

Problems:

I think I got a lemon on the first try. After having replaced it, no probems at all.
