Canon 350D: does it still stand up to the competition?

Pay careful attention to what Shutterbug Nut said

About the age of your camera.  Actually, if I were going around the world--even partway--I would have at least 2, if not 3 camera bodies with me.  My Canon 7D failed when I was on a trip to Colorado once and I was out of luck, because I had no backup.  And the 7D was a lot newer then than your 350D is now.  It's still a lot newer.  The advantages of the newer cameras go beyond image quality as well; bigger, brighter, higher-resolution LCD screens; better autofocus (the T2i has much faster more accurate AF, especially in AI Servo, than the XT or 350D); easier better user interface; faster burst rate; and so on.  You could probably get a 550D (T2i) for $300 or so. And also the newer EF-S 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 with IS is much better than the pre-IS kit lens.  I would strongly recommend upgrading.
