Canon EOS 300D (EOS Digital Rebel / EOS Kiss Digital) review
1

I checked out the images from a 450d and a 500d from this site and thought, hmmm these don't look that much better than my 300d. So, as an exercise I drew on paper the 300D 3072 x 2048 and then around it the 4752 x 3168 of the 500D. Ahhh I thought there's the difference, not very much!! Then on the A4 to A3 paper size principle I worked out the doubling of the 300D size and it comes to 6144 x 4096 or 25 Megapixels.

I then blew up a 300D image to 500D size and there's not that much difference, the ordinary person in the street, who looks at the image and not the quality wouldn't see any difference at all.

I've made over 8,000 images with my 300d regularly have and sell 15" x 10" prints, never had a problem with it and will wait for the next 600D? (25 MP) when Canon and the rest can truly say that the image size is actually, visibly, better.

Problems:

None
