This review is from: Canon EOS 1000D EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 (non IS) Lens Kit (Camera)
I have just upgraded to my first digital SLR and after a lot of hunting around, decided on this one. My initial impressions are very positive. I love the fact that I can change the lens and that there are many available to choose from. Another positive is, although I am only starting out with the camera, its ability to shoot in RAW - a feature I plan to fully explore as my confidence and skill grows.
It is very light-weight and easy to handle, and in fully programable mode is just as easy to use as my old point and shoot but with much better results.
It has a 10.1 megapixel sensor, can shoot up to 3 frames per second - which is great for action shots, and has seven points of focus which has been great to get focussed on to non-central subjects. I also love the fact that it has a self sensor cleaning feature every time the camera is switched off.
For the money it costs, this - in my opinion - is great camera.
