I have owned 4 Canon Rebel camera's. The original Rebel that I bought in 1992, a Rebel Xs, Rebel Ti, and my newest the Digital Rebel 300D. I love these camera's and have never had any problems with any of them with years of use. The original Rebel has been in 14 different countries, been dropped many, many times and has even seen combat in the Balkins. Heck, I even had my finger through the shutter (accident of course) and the camera still works today, despite having plenty of scars and needing tape to keep the battery door on. I have had 6 canon lenses and they all work great, better than the off-brand lenses that I bought for value. I trust anything with the Canon name on it to be of the best quality and durability!

Great Lightweight Camera LOADED w/Features!
The Rebel X is a very lightweight, feature packed camera. Like other EOS series cameras, this can very easily be used in 'full auto' mode - where the camera can easily be used as a "Point & Shoot" camera. But this 35mm camera & lens combo produce MUCH better results than most P&S cameras, AND this one has the ability to add all sorts of lenses, as well as filters, powerful flash units, etc.<br><br>While the "full Auto" mode makes it VERY easy to take nice photos, I also like the ability to select shutter speeds and/or aperture size. I can choose a fast shutter speed to stop action (or a slow speed to show 'movement', eg: blurred streams) and the camera sets the corresponding aperture for proper exposure. I can also choose 'aperture' mode to set that, which determines depth of field - to either blur out the background (when it might be distracting) or to keep background details in focus, when it's important or adds to my photo). All of the setting are VERY easy to use and figure out.<br><br>The one thing to consider - this model does NOT have a built in flash (there are LOTS of Canon EOS models that DO offer this feature) I use this camera mostly outdoors, and the light weight and compact size make it easy to carry in a backpack or 'waist' bag while hiking around. For indoor use, you will need to add a flash, but I found that pretty much any 'accessory' flash is a lot nicer than the built in flash offered on most models. So, when I need the flash, I carry it, when I don't I save the weight of toting one around.<br><br>All in all, this is an excellent camera, and with the proliferation of digital cameras, these nice, 35mm film cameras are a real bargain! For what it's worth, I also have a digital, but the photos from this cameras are superior in most ways, and I don't have to mess with printing. For me, developing film & getting prints is less expensive and WAY less hassle than printing at home. (inks & paper get expensive!)<br><br>Plus, I frequently get CD's of my photos when I get the film processed (I usually use Costco or Wal-Mart because they're convenient, but most places offer a CD of your photos for $2-5/roll) The CD images are handy for e-mailing and posting on web sites... and for just a few $$s, I save myself the hassle of scanning!<br><br>Back to the camera - if you want a VERY capable, versatile, lightweight camera which is super easy to use, the Canon EOS series are great! And, this camera also makes it very easy (& intuitive) when you want to get more creative, and take control of the exposure settings. Plus... the Rebel X can be found pretty cheap! :-)Read full review

Easiest camera I have ever had
My son had a Canon EOS Rebel X Camera and used it for a photography class. We used it when we went on vacation and fell in love with it. We call it our "PHD" camera. That stands for "push here dummy". It does everything for you. You push the button. First it beeps to let you know that the picture is focused. It then takes the picture and advances the film. How easy is that? Every last picture is clear and the definition is wonderful. It is the best camera we have ever had.

Great Camera for the Price!
I got my Canon Rebel about 13 years ago, the main thing I absolutely love about it... when you load the film it pulls all the film out and as you take pictures, it puts it back in the film cartridge protecting the shots you take from accidental exposure!!! I LOVE THAT! My friend has paid top dollar for a couple Nikons and they dont do that! such a simple thing that is an important feature to me. I also love the quality pics I have taken and experimented with different settings... I have taken night sky shots, multiple image, etc...all easy to do and turned out awesome! I love this camera!
