'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
'JPEG compression setting (normal to superfine, which is appreciably lossless), face detection, and a wide range of selectable resolutions, including matted widescreen modes'
'The Canon A580 automatically detects, tracks, focuses and optimizes the exposure on up-to nine forward looking human faces in the frame or can lock onto a specific face in the crowd, ensuring that all (or one) are in focus and properly exposed, with or without flash.'
'the camera should be a good physical fit for everyone'
'Kodak's $279.95 EasyShare V1253 packs a surprising amount of capability into a small point-and-shoot package'
'Its three-tabbed menu system can get a little confusing, though; in addition to Setup, there are two Capture menus labeled Capture and Capture +, so you may have to scroll through both to find the functions you want.'
