I dont really frequent this forum so forgive me if this has been discussed to death.

I was wondering if any of you recommend this camera because I was thinking of getting one for Christmas. I was thinking of using the Christmas bonus that I get yearly. Do any of you have this camera and have you had any problems with it?

Should I buy it or not?

Thanks in advance.

The Canon Digital Rebel is a great camera, I and many many many other people would recommend this camera. Do a search in the photo db for "Canon Digital Rebel" or just "300D" and you'll find LOTS of shots.

How experienced are you with photography?

Usairwys757 - All my photos on the database are taken with the 300D (Rebel). I am very happy with it.

It has not let me down so far - I have let myself down, but I can't blame the camera for those failures! But the results straight out of the camera always need some work to get them looking okay.

All the best.

Paul

Its a great entry level DSRL but it is only as good as the lens you put on the front of it, and the processing you do after.

A Canon Digital Rebel plugfest? Sure, I'll get onboard!

I'd HIGHLY reccommend the Digital Rebel. It's easy to learn, easy to use, and will give you AMAZING results in many different conditions. It's also great to have access to the entire line of Canon lenses!

Sure thing! Big grin It's a great entry-level camera, which will give you great results when used properly! Make sure you keep enough money for a good lens though...they can't be forgotten, as they are just as, if not more, important than the camera itself!

Vasco - I understand the point you are making and I was feeling a bit shy about including my own photos.

But I justified it in my own mind by thinking that showing some photos, with some information about lenses used, would provide Travis with the best kind of information on which he can make his own assessment.

I don't think this is 'Look at me and my fantastic photos'; it's more 'this is the kind of quality of image that I get with this equipment'. As we can see from people's photos in this thread, the camera (with, of course, a decent lens and in capable hands) will produce good results.

Hope I don't sound too defensive.

I've got some really good stuff in the queue right now that I've shot in the last few days with a Canon 100-400mm L IS lens... We'll see what gets accepted and then I'll post some of that stuff.


Excellent camera as long as you learn how to pace yourself while trying to take multiple shots in a row. The camera doesn't write to the card as fast or have quite the frame buffer of the 10D, 20D, etc... Either way, it has never been a problem for me.

Vasco-

You seem to be distracted by all the pretty pictures, did you read the text as well? Here are some highlights:

"It has not let me down so far - I have let myself down, but I can't blame the camera for those failures! But the results straight out of the camera always need some work to get them looking okay."

" I HIGHLY recommend the camera!"

"Its a great entry level DSRL but it is only as good as the lens you put on the front of it, and the processing you do after."

"I'm sure you will not be disappointed"

"I'd HIGHLY reccommend the Digital Rebel. It's easy to learn, easy to use, and will give you AMAZING results in many different conditions. It's also great to have access to the entire line of Canon lenses!"

"Sure thing! It's a great entry-level camera, which will give you great results when used properly! Make sure you keep enough money for a good lens though...they can't be forgotten, as they are just as, if not more, important than the camera itself!"

"I don't think this is 'Look at me and my fantastic photos'; it's more 'this is the kind of quality of image that I get with this equipment'. As we can see from people's photos in this thread, the camera (with, of course, a decent lens and in capable hands) will produce good results."

In short, we all are of the opinion that it is a fantastic camera, a great value, and I will add that yes, it is very dependable and I've personally not had any problems with mine.

That being said - there's nothing wrong with plugging. I saw one of the very early 300D plug threads - and that made me buy mine. I read all the reviews on earth - and was fairly sold - but when I started seeing the real images coming out of the camera, I finally got up off the cash and bought one. A picture is worth a thousand words. So let the plugfest continue.  Big thumbs up

Drew

I found the 300D to be a great camera. All my pics on A.net are with it. And I have several 1000 other pics on my pc that i'm just too lazy to upload.

I found it to be great as I got to learn about digital SLR's, but the time has come to upgrade, so over the winter when I wont be spotting, I'm selling the 300D, hopefully to buy a 10D or 20D (depending upon money)

Thanks for the response Vasco...The guy asked if we thought the 300D was a good camera or not, and if we recommend it. What better way to show how much we like it than by showing some nice photos that were taken with it? As Drew thankfully pointed out (I was about to do the same!), most of us also wrote a little bit along with the photos to justify our showing of shots!

Would you find it more appropriate to find 15 posts saying "It's a great camera. Buy it."? I as the thread starter would just think "ok, so now show me!"...But then again, that's just me...
