This was my first new SLR purchase and I'm glad i took some time to look around at all the camera's available to me.
This SLR has all the features you could want from a film camera at a semi-profession level.
full automatic mode (aperture, shutter speed controlled)
shutter speed priority (you set shutter speed, ai does the aperture)
aperture priority (you set aperture, ai does the shutter speed)
a lot of preset modes for the novice photographer not yet used to SLR camera controls.
there are many other features of this product which are alls mall but are the kind of things you say "oh i wish my camera had that" such as a backlit screen and multiple exposure mode (up the 9 exposures on one film slide)
the one disadvantage i found with this camera is the although you can use the Eos300D lenses on a 300V, you cannot use 300V lenses on a 300D *note - 300V is the film version - 300D is the digital version
for people looking to spend between £200-£300 on a camera and lenses i highly recommend this camera - you wont be dissapointed
good review, needs more info though to get higher ratings, if you update, leave me a message and ill be happy to re-rate. Golden

You can't beat an SLR for personal satisfaction with photography. Maureen

The 300V (this camera) is a Film SLR - therefore the resolution and memory card are not applicable.
there is an automatic mode, as stated, and it is light compared to other camera's i've tried, although i will add it does feel very well built when held and not plasticky as is the case on some of the newer camera's
