Canon EOS 1000D Kit (EFS 18-55)

Photography as a serious hobby was never as easy to pursue as it is nowadays, what with the coming of excellent entry level SLRs by established companies like Canon and Nikon. These cameras come with all the basic features demanded out of an SLR, but they also fit into an average enthusiastís budget. For instance the Canon EOS 1000D is a perfect example of this type of camera, with its resolution of 10.1mp, a medium focal length range of 18mm to 55mm and Canonís Integrated Lens Cleaning function, along with other features.

Design and Functioning

Like any other SLR worth its cost, the Canon EOS 1000D is made out of the same Magnesium alloy that SLRs boast of. Yet, this camera is touted to have the lightest body in the Canon EOS range. It is known for its four stop Image Stabilization function Ė which minimizes the effect of slower shutter speeds, too high an ISO rating, as well as mechanical blur. Moreover, it also comes with Noise Reduction function for slower shutter speeds and higher ISO ratings. Its Startup time is about 0.1 second, which makes operation easy and hassle free. For low lighting conditions, its ISO ratings can be increased to a maximum of 12800. It comes with the superior CMOS sensor that is known for conserving battery power and is used in all SLRs. It is compatible with SD/SDHC cards for storage.
