I recently bought a 1000D to replace the 400D i had to sell just before christmas.
So far.. so good.. it compares nicely to the 400D in image quality and with the added 'live view' mode that makes taking shots at tricky angles much easyer. I'm happy for the newer modle.
Coming with the 18-55 EFS kit lens means i got to shoot some images the same day.
Apparently With the lightest body of any digital EOS camera, the 1000D incorporates a range of technologies used in Canon's professional EOS-1 series digital cameras, including the DIGIC III image processor, and Live View mode. (thats good enough for me)
So far nothing to report about it not being up to the challenge.
Take a look below at a few snaps i've captured using the 1000D and 18-55 lens
Or you can look at the album called 'Canon 1000D' in my profile for ALL the snaps i've captured using it.
