camera– Canon EOS 350D 

the following information also come from wiki website:


The Canon EOS 350D (Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT in North America and the Canon EOS Kiss Digital N in Japan) is an 8.0-megapixel entry-level digital single-lens reflex camera manufactured by Canon. The model was initially announced in February 2005. It uses Compact Flash storage and a Lithium ion battery. Part of the EOS, it is the successor to the EOS 300D and the predecessor to the EOS 400D (or Digital Rebel XTi), which was released in August 2006. Since early 2008, the 350D has been remaindered (production ceased in December 2007).[citation needed]

The 350D is an upgraded version of the popular Canon EOS 300D, which was the first sub-US$1000 digital SLR, introduced in 2003. The differences between the 350D and the 300D are significant and are present in almost all aspects of the camera. Many of the features ‘locked out’ by Canon in the 300D were unlocked in this camera, so it has been subject to less unofficial ‘hacking’ to release the locked features. In addition to these unlocked features, a number of other improvements have been made. Some of the most significant upgrades include:

  • 8.0 megapixels (up from 6.3)
  • DiG!C II image processor
  • Near instantaneous turn on and wake up times (0.2 seconds)
  • Compact Flash type II capability (includes microdrives)
  • 14 (JPEG) or 4 (RAW) frames continuous shooting buffer
  • Smaller and lighter body
  • Vastly increased function customizability
  • E-TTL II flash algorithm (improvement over the old E-TTL flash algorithm)
  • Mirror lock-up
  • Selectable AF and metering modes
  • USB 2.0 interface (improved from the slower USB 1.1 interface on the 300D)

    According to used this camera, i feel the most annoying issue is the 1G CF card is too small, that means 140 pictures is the maximum. And the shutter cannot adjust to under f/5.6, quite abnormal.
