Manufacturer's Description

Quality; The EOS 350D Digital employs Canon's acclaimed CMOS technology, for outstanding image quality and an impressive 8.0 Megapixel resolution. Now you can always be primed for the next shot thanks to the responsive 3 frame per second, 14 frame burst performance and instant 0.2 second start up time. Powerful DIGIC II architecture taken from Canon's pro-series cameras ensures no compromise on style, sophistication, capabilities and super-fast image processing.

Perfect light; The powerful pop-up flash (guide no. 13) offers plenty of lighting flexibility. E-TTL II distance-linked flash reads lens distance information and provides ambient light for accurate flash metering - perfect for recomposed shots and difficult reflections. The camera is compatible with the entire EX Speedlite flash range, including the Speedlite 580EX, which transmits colour temperature information for improved colour stability.

Once connected direct to any PictBridge compatible printer, simply hit the 'Direct Print' button for an instant print of the displayed image; automatically sized and correctly aligned&less work for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick - buy one before everybody else does! 12 July 2006
By Martini
I was nervous at spending so much on this type of camera. I previously had an Ixus 50, which was great, but was too much of a handbag camera for what I needed it for. My primary concern, having had an old 35mm film camera years ago, was that it would be complicated to use, and effectively put me off using it. Despite this I bought the camera, and have never looked back!

For a novice (and I am) this camera has to be as easy, if not easier than the IXUS. Point, focus, shoot. Simple as that on auto. The standard manual settings are also spot on, and very useful. I'm taking literally hundreds of pictures a night, with superb results, and I have yet to run out of power, despite using the flash for virtually every shot. In short, I love it to death.

Don't buy the camera case though, it's a real dogs breakfast, and there is no card in the box, so you can't use the camera when it arrives!

5.0 out of 5 stars The 350D beats all the competition 13 Jan 2006
By Mr. R. Gleadhill VINE VOICE
I'm not new to photography, but the 350D is my first digital SLR. It took me a long time to decide on the Canon, but after having a go with it (and the Nikon D70 and D70s), the Canonwas without a doutb the best.
The 18-55mm lens supplied in the kit isnt the best lens you will come across, but if you are new to photography, or maybe can't afford a better lens at the time, by all means by the kit. There isn't anything wrong with the lens, it just seems as if they could have made more of an effort with it.
The image quality is more than stunning. This camera is my first introduction to digital, apart from a cheap Kodak I bought a couple of years ago, and the difference really surprised me. The software supplied with the camera is also excellent. After being used to using a 30 year old SLR with stiff winding movements, and pathetic metering, the Canon simpy took my breath away.
I bought the Sigma 70-300mm DG Macro lens, which suits the Canon perfectly, and I will be buying the Sigma 28-70mm soon.
A lot of people say the main downside of the Canon is its size. For me, it isnt a problem, as I have small hands. It is exceptionally light, even with a seemingly heavy lens. The controls are very conveniently placed, and out of the box, you dont really need to read the manual to take advantage of many of the camera's features. My main use for the camera is astrophotography, a field in which the Canon is far better than the Nikon, Pentax and Olympus digital SLRs.
A little tip is that you buy a high speed memory card in order to do the camera justice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Step into the SLR world without fear 2 Jan 2007
By MrShev
I bought this camera recently as I had been getting very frustrated using a digital compact camera by Olympus. I was finding that photography in low light conditions or using a flash was difficult and achieved disappointing results so I bought this camera to address these problems...

The good:

1. Speed. My god, this camera is fast. Boot up time is very quick but it's the shooting time that reeally impresses.

2. Film speed of 1600. I have found this to be invaluable and the grain is not too bad at all. This is a very good low light camera (except, obviously, with a TP lens).

3. Ease of use. Makes my old digital camera seem like a rocket guidance system handbook. You can literally take this out of the box, charge the battery and start taking great photos. Also, it plugged straight into my Apple without missing a beat.

4. Transition from old EOS cameras. This is the same as my old 35mm SLR camera...but digital. All my old lenses work and my filters and all of the buttons are in the same place. Using the Av mode was like stepping back into an old pair of slippers.

5. Diatropic adjustment. I can use the camera without my glasses! Woohoo!

6. Battery life. If you turn off the picture preview pane then you can use this camera for a long, long time before the battery runs dry.

The Bad:

1. No memory card supplied. I think that this is a bit tight. They could have chucked in just a 128Mb card, just so you could take a few photos for fun and then gone out and bought a 2Gb card. Memory is cheap, Canon are tight. We're talking 30 here!

2. The lens supplied sucks. Great if you want to take pictures of bugs but not great for much else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Novice's Point of View 3 Sep 2006
I recently became interested in photography, and after reading reviews and doing lots of research, I took the plunge with the Canon 350D EOS. My main criteria were simplicity of use, image quality and range of functions, and all boxes were admirably ticked with this camera. As a novice I was not sure of how to work the more complex aspects of digital photography, and the automatic functions on this camera were superb in helping me to refine my photographic skills. Automatic settings for sport, close-ups, portraits and landscapes covered everything I wanted a camera for, so anybody who is not competent with manual settings could easily and happily live off only the automatic functions.

My single concern, and advice to potential buyers is that it is well worth purchasing a lens to replace the one that comes with the camera. The 18-55 that comes with the camera is all very well but does not have good zoom, unlike the macro/zoom tamron 75-300 mm lens I bought as a replacement. by the way, that is also a very good piece of equipment.

Anyway, directing this at novices like myself, buy the Canon 350D EOS, as it is a stellar introduction to photography.
