Canon EOS 350D Digital Rebel XT SLR Digital Camera Review

The-Digital-Picture.com have posted their review of the Canon EOS 350D Digital Rebel XT SLR . The 300D was a huge hit, and after using the Canon EOS 350D Digital Rebel XT, I expect it to be an even bigger hit. Canon has put much of their high end technology into a feature-filled, entry-level-priced DSLR. From fully automatic P&S (Point & Shoot) to fully manual control along with many modes between (including black & white), the Canon EOS 350D Digital Rebel XT offers something to both newbies and pros.

They have this to say about the Canon EOS 350D Digital Rebel XT SLR-
"While much of the buzz is about the Canon EOS 350D Digital Rebel XT's small size, I think the 350D/Rebel XT's best attribute is its excellent image quality. The 350D/Rebel XT has inherited Canon's advanced CMOS sensor and processor technology including the Digic II processor from the 1Ds Mark II, 1D Mark II and 20D. Image quality is very similar to the 20D. Keep in mind that the default Canon EOS 350D Digital Rebel XT settings bump contrast/saturation/sharpness up a notch from Canon's higher end bodies at their default settings. Many consumers prefer these settings, and they can of course be adjusted to preference. My preference is for Parameter (the menu setting) = Parameter 2 (no out-of-the-camera enhancements) which I then post-process to optimize each individual picture. With pixels sized about 3x larger than P&S digital camera pixels, the Canon EOS 350D Digital Rebel XT delivers excellent image quality. Image quality for the price is very high.

I think the Canon EOS 350D Digital Rebel XT is an excellent value. It will be the right camera for many people. And it may be the camera to meet Canon's high Digital SLR sales projection."
