'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
'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.'
'It has no shutter- or aperture-priority mode'
'the camera should be a good physical fit for everyone'
'All is not perfect though – the joystick is still a little uncomfortable to use, as is the zoom toggle.'
