'A low price boosts the Canon EOS Digital Rebel's appeal for amateur film-SLR photographers going digital and high-end snapshooters who want to experiment more.
'Compact and lightweight'
'For less than $1,000 ($899.99 list with an EF-S 18-to-55mm IS lens), you get a 15.1-megapixel CMOS sensor that takes fantastic pictures and a big, high-res VGA screen, along with high-definition video capture, which until now you couldn't get in a sub-$1K D-SLR
'Overall, a good, well-rounded camera, if not a little unremarkable in places due to lack of new innovation. '
'It's a digital SLR that's aimed at people who don't have a big budget and who are perhaps new to digital photography but don't want a camera with a smaller Micro Four Thirds–based system.'
'While the picture quality of the A390 — especially with the 55-200mm lens — is very good, we're put off by some of the camera's physical aspects. '
