I think that is the EOS 300 in Europe, currently selling for £300 (US$480) in the UK.

Todd,

I have been thinking about getting this camera as a film counterpart to my digital photography. I have heard good things about it, but maybe some others on this forum can enlighten us more. Let me know how it works out for you- I am curious.

What about the Mintola XTsi?
Mintola isn't that popular I guess....

It's just that I already have Canon gear and a Canon dedicated 420EX flash that I love that would work with the Rebel, that's all. I'm sure Minolta is good, too!

Hey,
Thanks for the replies so far. I talked to my dad today and he left out what lenses he got, but he did get some. I will ask him in the morning and post the answer after school. Thanks again.

Todd

Hey!

I own an EOS 300 (Rebel 2000) It is the best camera in its priceclass, with 7 autofocus points and 35 light measuring points. It is offcourse compatible to al the EF lenses (canon Lenses) The big advantage are the EF lenses using USM motors for autofocus. USM lenses have very fast and accurate autofocus motors. That way you can easily track an airplane on 300 mm without losing focus. So if your dad hasn't bought any lenses yet, go for an USM lense! (I have the 75-300mm USMII F/4-5.6 Lense)

In all, you won't get a better camera for the same price.

Hope this helps!  Big thumbs up

Wietse

A mighty good camera considering the very low price. I own the Rebel 2000 (EOS 300 in Europe) myself. All of my photos (1 exception) on airliners.net have been taken with this camera. if possible get IS USM lenses. they are great. I have the 28-135 f3.5-.6 IS USM and the 75-300 f4.0-5.6 IS USM.

If you would like to view some of my photos here on airliners.net please seach for edwin olinowetz (keyword).

I heard the auto exposure on that model was dodgy
