Are you looking for your first DSLR camera? The Canon XS/1000D is the perfect camera to help you take your photography skills to the next level. It comes with a single lens kit which is the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5 IS lens. This lens is an ideal all rounder for taking landscapes and portraits. The camera is a very portable DSLR; it is a little thinner than the Canon XTi/400D and weighs only 1 pound, 1.6 ounces.
The body of this camera is smooth and the plastic body feels good to grip. The cover also has a rubbery feel, which helps it from slipping from the hand. All the buttons on this camera are on the right hand side and they feel a little different when you hold them without looking. This can help a lot during a run and gun shoot. None of the functions require double handed operation; you just have to push a button to change the ISO or the white balance, metering etc.
The Menu is the biggest advantage of this camera because it is so accessible and user-friendly. In menu you can create a list of functions that you use regularly so that you can access them quickly. This makes using the camera functions a lot easier. For example, I like to keep Format and Live View settings close so that they are easily accessible. Some of the options can be changed from the dial or the navigation button, whichever is easier to access for you. The quality of the photos from this camera are fantastic because it is a 10 megapixel camera with an APS-size CMOS sensor and a 7-point user selectable autofocus system. The Auto Lighting Optimizer is a cool feature; it automatically adjusts contrast and brightness if the image captured was not so good. The Canon EOS XS/1000D is a great camera with lots of nice features. Pick up a great value kit here today.
