The Canon Digital Rebel XT's image quality leads its class; competitive price; ultrafast start-up time; very responsive.
The Canon Rebel XT's lightweight plastic body isn't ergonomically satisfying; no spot meter; limited continuous-shooting mode, unimpressive kit lens; 1.6X lens-conversion factor.
The Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT is an exceptionally small and lightweight camera designed for amateur digital SLR photographers, but it delivers the responsiveness and image quality you'd expect from a semipro model.

Great dSLR camery body for getting started into taking real photos.
Size is 3/5 for my hands, but if you prefer a body small sized to Your packpack or having smaller hands than this is 5/5.
Features is also 3/5 because it is an older model. No liveView, no sensor cleaning, but with CHDK You can get an even smarter camera then the 20D! (not the AF speed but timelapse, shuttercount, spot metering(!) )
This camera offers a good value in the used market. I've been using Canon cameras for over 30 years and I've been pleased with all of the bodies I've owned. This camera is no exception.
My two complaints about the camera are it's size and the burst rate. My hands are large and I find that small size and controls can be a little awkward. I've got a 1DmkII that is considerably larger and (to me) easier to handle. The burst rate/buffer while not bad for the $$$, are on the slow side and I found myself waiting on the buffer to clear while shooting high school football.
This camera won't ever replace my 1D, but it is great as a light little camera to grab and go when I don't need the buffer burst of the 1D and won't more than a "point and shoot." The image quality is very good and the features (and accessories) are way more than adequate.
I've also purchased a Canon XT Digital Rebel for my daughter and it seems to be virtually the same camera, just has XT on the front instead of 350D.....
All in all, if you are ready to move up from a "point and shoot," this camera is great starting place. If you're looking for a second (or third) CANON body that is very compact and light, this is a good choice. If you're looking to get into shooting professionally, this isn't a great choice.
As others have stated, I also recommend purchasing an upgrade lens over the stock 18-55mm that Canon chose to package this guy with.
I originally picked up the XT for two reasons, one - I wanted an upgrade from the point & shoot junk, and two - this particular camera had a lot of astronomy add-ons/compatibility and I've been wanting to hook a camera up to a telescope.
A month or so in now, I find myself taking the thing everywhere. It's a perfect size for a DSLR, pictures are fantastic (especially for it's age & resolution) and my particular one came with a fantastic SIGMA lens.
I think I may not have been as excited if I had bought one with the factory freebie lens, but having the slightly-stronger strength of the SIGMA and the lightning-fast focus speed is great for portraits as well as some building/architecture shots. I've taken some awesome pictures of the Capitol here by simply standing on the sidewalk.
I do wish the exposure shutter length could be set longer than 30 seconds for my night-sky photography, my son's Nikon 3100D will go quite a bit longer - 5 minutes I think, but I realize that is a miniscule concern for most - and thus the one-point off for features. On the other hand, I spent about $600 on the Nikon for my son's birthday, and less than $200 on my Canon.
If you need digital video - this is not it.. there is no video feature, look at the aforementioned Nikon with it's commercial/advertisement-grade 1080p capabilities... but for a basic DSLR that is easy to learn to use, this is definitely it.
I had a Canon xs a few years ago and sold it, because I wasn't really prepared to use such a large camera. I sold it within a month or so and got pretty much all my money back. After buying 4/3rds cameras and loving them I saw this one on
ebay and decided to bid on it. I got it for a good price and I find it is every bit as good as the xs I had. 8 GB is enough for most things.
The camera is very easy to use and has enough features to challange you if you want to get into the more creative aspects of the camera. The camera is great for the outdoors and inside with a flash. When I need a better low light camera I have a Olympus xz-1 in my pocket that will take pictures in the dark, practically.
This camera has a user friendly interface, designed to work with either the occasional photography enthusiast to even a professional photographer. This camera is a great starting SLR for anyone interested in testing the Digital SLR water. Batteries and lenses are still being made that fit this camera, and the Canon website is keeping all the software and firmware up to date for it on their page.
I originally bought this camera looking to delve deeper into photography, and to receive some of the benefits that simple point and shoot cameras lack. The only thing I really dislike about this camera is that it is a little bulky. However, I can't complain at all considering the time it was made and the fact that is indeed, after all, an SLR.
The built in flash does the job for the little things, and suffices in low light situations. However if you really want to light up the room, get a separate flash system.
Compared to simple point and shoots, this camera offers a much broader range of modes and functions that enable the camera to manipulate photographs to desired effects more so than the point and shoots. Although the camera is only 8 MP, that is really all you need. The main difference between higher and medium to lower MP is the size of the picture you desire. If you want to make a huge poster, than go for a higher MP. However if you are just taking pictures standard sized or smaller than a huge poster, its easier and cheaper to get the lower MP.
Overall I would definitely recommend this camera to anyone willing to give the SLR world a shot. I would recommend bringing extra batteries along (you can find lithium ones online from retailers) whenever you are going to be doing a lot of photography.
The average price you can expect for one varies between $250-500 depending on accessories being sold along with the camera, however, the body alone can be bought for around $250. I would recommend ditching the 18-55 mm lens as it doesn't really bring the quality to a picture that most are looking for. Try instead a 28-105 perhaps (like what I have).
Hope this helps!
