Canon Digital Rebel XT 8MP Digital SLR Camera

With its predecessor, EOS 300D, being considered to be the “best selling digital SLR camera model of all time”, one can definitely expect more from EOS 350D, better known as Canon Digital Rebel XT. This upgraded DSLR can shoot three 8.0 Megapixel frames each second and boasts the state-of-the-art APS-C 8.0 MP CMOS sensor developed by Canon in the past 12 months.

The sensor makes way for “extremely low noise” shooting even while in the 14-frame burst operation setting. Similar to the other professional DSLR cameras developed and manufactured by Canon, EOS 350D also has DIGIC II as its image processor. Other outstanding features of this camera includes: writing large .jpeg and .raw files simultaneously, high-speed USB 2.0 connectivity, 20% lighter than EOS 300D and extra-fast start up time (approximately 0.2 seconds after pressing the button).

Canon is very confident that EOS 350D will also hit the market by storm considering that many of the technologies found in this camera have been based on the survey conducted by the company during the 2004 Olympics held in Athens. About 70% of the professional photographers who participated in the survey had the same opinion about the best mid-budget professional DSLR camera. Canon relied on these opinions as well as to their own market research and they finally came out with EOS 350D.

EOS 350D Target Users

While this camera may very well compete with other professional cameras, the real target users of Canon are consumers who opt to upgrade from the conventional point-and-shoot digital cameras to the more quality DSLR ones. Moreover, given that the camera is made lighter than its predecessor and generally, lighter than the other DSLR cameras in the market today, it becomes ideal for users who used to carry around point-and-shoot digital cameras during their trips and travels. With EOS 350D, these users can not expand their photographic creativity anytime of the day.

EOS 300D vs. EOS 350D

Two main features distinguish EOS 350D from EOS 300D, these are: the newer CMOS sensor (Canon used a fourth-generation sensor on 350D) and the better performing DIGIC II image processor. Other differences include the improved flash-metering system of 350D as well as some enhancements in its flash exposures. Moreover, 350D allows the user to choose from three different modes of focus: (1) AI Focus, (2) AI SERVO and (3) One-shoot AF.

The camera also allows the user to directly shoot black and white photographs. It can also make corrections even prior to actually taking the pictures. In essence, EOS 350D has the same image processing software as that of Canon’s EOS-1D which is one of Canon’s most expensive cameras.

Nikon D90 12.3MP Digital SLR Camera (Body Only)

Not everyone in this planet get the chance to try each and every DSLR camera in the market; so if you too feel that you don’t have the same chance and you are in a limited budget, might as well choose the best camera that you can afford. My personal recommendation is Nikon D90, the successor of Nikon D80 which was released last 2006.

Nikon D80 quickly rose into stardom because of its overall functionality and ease of use. After a few minutes in your hand, D80 will feel like it has been your camera since forever. Now, for whatever complaints and issues the old users of D80 have, D90 has promptly addressed.

D90 is a little heavier than D80 (about 35 grams), but this is not without reason. The newer release from the D-series has additional hardware parts which contributed to its weight. The camera is designed to meet movie-capturing needs flawlessly; for this reason, Nikon added three new holes on the front end of the camera. These holes are intended for the microphone for more audio-capturing power.

The improved microphone system is designed to complement the new movie-recording mode added by Nikon to D90. But apart from this, the apparent physical appearance of D90 and D80 are pretty much alike — both cameras basically have the same buttons which trigger the same functions as well. Both cameras also have the “autofocus screw drive” which allows them to drive autofocus lenses for older models and at the same time, accommodate newer releases.

With a more careful inspection, you will be able to notice the size difference of the LCD screen of D90 and D80. The latter one’s screen is a little bit smaller than D90’s. The screen displays of the two cameras also show different parameters.

D90 is powered by a 12.3 MP sensor making it better than the other professional DSLR released by Nikon like D300 and D3. The camera is also perfect for indoor or dim-light capturing through its wide ISO range (200 to 6400).

Fusing 12.3-megapixel image quality inherited from the award-winning D300 with groundbreaking features, the D90’s breathtaking, low-noise image quality is further advanced with EXPEED image processing. Split-second shutter response and continuous shooting at up to 4.5 frames-per-second provide the power to capture fast action and precise moments perfectly, while Nikon’s exclusive Scene Recognition System contributes to faster 11-area autofocus performance, finer white balance detection and more.
Overall, this camera is a total must-have especially to those who really desire to have a top quality DSLR camera.
