      Are you a novice photographer? Then the Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS, also known as the Canon 1000D, is the perfect camera for you. The features on this camera are especially useful for beginners. Along with the spectacular features comes a very nice built in flash.

      The standard 18-55 mm lens is included in the package and is a very nice lens. Let’s get into some detail about the features.

      To start off, the fully automatic mode is pretty good, but not what you want to use when carrying an SLR around. The


      other automatic modes such as portrait, sport mode, night mode, etc.

      are exceptional in quality. The only bad thing that I have noticed while using these automatic modes is that the camera seems to rely on the flash too much.

      While this may be good in some cases, it may add to the noise effect on pictures. Now, the manual modes are what you really want from this camera.

      The program mode is a half manual, half automatic mode which gives you different pairs of aperture and shutter speed that you can use ...


      • in your current lighting. Depending if you want to “freeze time” or if you want to have the motion effect, it is up to you.

        The “Tv” mode (time variable mode) allows you to change the speed of the shutter. In a situation of constant motion, you’d like a quick shutter speed, and in times to gather more light, a slow shutter speed would be preferable.

        Thankfully, the Canon Reble XS contains a wide range of shutter speeds from 1/4000 of a second to 30 seconds. This allows the photographer to be more

        creative.

        The “Av” mode (aperture variable mode) allows the change of aperture, of the size of the opening in the lens. The range on this is dependent on the lens.

        The only problem I have seen with this camera is when having ISO speeds over 800, the picture starts to show a little bit of noise. Overall, this camera is excellent for the average person.

        Now, if you are looking for more, then there are higher leveled cameras, along with an expensive price tag. I would definitely recommend this to anybody that wants an entry-level SLR.
