everything about it

still trying to find one

First of all what is it ? It is a 35mm SLR camera. What is SLR ? Single-lens reflex. What does that mean ? In summary, the term Single Lens Reflex is a type of camera where what you see is seen through the lens not the view finder. The image is reflected on a mirror which passes through a prism...

“Good camera, good price”

published 02/07/2001

good price, perfectly sharp pics

maybe the synthetic body

Introduction ------------- This is my first opinion in english language (I wrote for ciao Germany before), so please forgive me all the mistakes I may make... The Canon Eos 300 came out in 1999, I guess it is exactly two years now. I have read a test about it in a photographer's magazine - the...

size and weight, supplied consumer zoom

I upgraded to the Canon EOS300 (known as the Rebel 2000 in the US) from an earlier Canon model (EOS5000) because I was ready to learn more about photgraphy and needed a camera which allowed total manual control. I already had a few Canon fit lenses, so another Canon was the obvious choice. At the...

none that I have found

I bought my EOS 300 in October last year, and have been taking wonderful photographs ever since. Having spent the last ten years getting variable results from a string of compact cameras, I decided that it was time to splash out on an SLR. Having done some research in the area and knowing I had...

“Beautiful Camera”

published 10/10/2000

Ultra-Compact, lightweight and high-quality SLR camera. Successor to New EOS Kiss/REBEL G/500N. Based on the concept of "easier to use and more comfortable" than the former model, it is smaller and lighter weight. It also has a higher performance AF system, exposure control and other basic...

I've had this camera for more than a year now, and I can say that I have seen it take brilliant pictures, and at the same time it has managed to destroy a few. It does include features that other camera makes only include in much more expensive models, like the 7 point autofocus. As good as it is...

“A camera to suit everyone”

published 30/12/2000

Simple to use or as complicated as you wish

Plasticky feel.

I came to the EOS 300 after my old SLR gave up the ghost and started to behave oddly when most needed. Cameras have changed a lot since I last bought one so I looked around for something that would suit my needs - the EOS 300 does just this. At its simplest it can be set to AUTO and used as a...

7-point-focussing, lightweight, easy to use.

Can sometimes focus on the wrong thing when in AF ...

I am a photography student. I am currently studying NCTJ Photojournalism. Before that, I studied the BTEC National Diploma in Photography. Before I bought the EOS 300, I had a Nikon F60, which was alright, but when in autofocus, it was far too slow at focussing, and only had 1 point of focus, so...

“Perfection comes with time”

published 14/09/2003

suitable for learners and well trained ones!

versatility lacking

I upgraded to EOS 300 (28-90) after using an earlier Canon model, which was stolen. I have used this camera for over an year now and I can say that perfection with EOS 300 does not happen overnight, but does happen! It is quite good for beginners (my daughter has used it for her GCSE photography...

Not aim and shoot.

I got my Canon EOS 300 because it was an insurance claim after having an EOS 1000 stolen. At first i found it a little hard to use simply becuase it now has 5 different focus points as opposed to the old single focus point, however, once i got used to that, i really think this is a brilliant...

photos that will never let you down

heavy

What I love about this camera is that the automatic settings are so easy to use and infinitely forgiving that you will never be let down by your pictures, but at the same time it has so many more advanced settings that as you learn and build confidence you will be constantly delighted by the...

Easy to use with manual overide

No external flash connection

The EOS 300D, what a great bit of kit, I sold my old Bronica medium format setup to buy this camera. Not disappointed in the slightest apart from the flash positioning, when taking close-up photos. It only took around a day to familiarise myself with EOS 300, which is all credit to the Canon...

This was my first slr camera although it is not my first use of an slr camera. It has an automatic set of functions for camera use like you would have on a normal point and shoot camera. These features are usefull for when you dont want fully manual operation and also good for getting used to the...

“EOS 300”

published 01/10/2004

Ease of use

Cost of developing so many pictures

I bought my Canon EOS 300 is Heathrow Duty free on my way to our honeymoon 4 years ago. We flew to Kenya for a Safari and I read the instruction manual on the plane. We arrived and met a couple at our hotel who had already been on their Safari. They lent me their 300m zoom lens. I took 7 rolls of...
