4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent small camera, 10 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Canon EOS 100D Digital SLR Camera Body Only - (18MP, CMOS Sensor) 3 inch LCD (Electronics)
The Canon EOS100D is a very nice, very small DSLR. I also own an EOS7 which costs nearly three times as much, and the results from the 100D are evry bit as good. There small size takes a bit of getting used to, but once you put a lens on it, there is plenty to get hold of. I know from experience that it can be quite uncomfortable carrying a heavy camera around all day, and the lightness of the 100D is very welcome in this respect. Despite being light, it feels very robust and well made and the polycarbonate case feels almost the same as Canon's more expensive magnesium bodied cameras.
there are two things I don't like. Firstly, the camera is a bit patronising! Every time you change a setting it explains what the new setting is used for, as if you know nothing about cameras. This is a waste of time. Perhaps you can turn it off, but I haven't looked at the DVD handbook, so I'm not sure. There is a small but quite comprehensive instruction book as well as a DVD so you don't need to use the DVD unless you really want to know everything about the camera.
The other thing I don't like is the batty case cover. It feels flimsy, so you would need to be careful when using it. Cards are also accessed using this cover. So you will be opening it quite often. A shame really because it spoils an otherwise quality product, and is the reason why I have only awarded four stars. It's not a major problem however, so don't be put off by this.
The shutter allows 4 frames per second. I thought I might find this a bit slow compared to my EOS7 but it's fine and in fact I have difficulty just taking one shot when it's set to multi- shoot.
To summarise- an excellent camera, particularly for someone with small hands and also a worthwhile buy as a second camera when you want something a bit compact without sacrificing quality
