[INDENT] 10.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor
A 10.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor captures enough detail to make A4-size prints, even when cropping your image. Canon’s CMOS sensor technology also ensures crisp, sharp images even in low-light conditions.

Up to 3 frames per second
For dramatic mid-action shots, the EOS 1000D allows continuous shooting of large JPEG images at speeds of up to 3 frames per second, until the memory card is full. With a 2GB card, this lets you shoot up to 514 images without a pause.

7-point wide-area AF
A wide-area Auto Focus system uses seven separate focusing points to lock onto subjects fast. The central focus point enables focusing even under low-light or low-contrast conditions.

EOS Integrated Cleaning System
Canon’s built-in dust prevention system guards images against the effects of dust in three ways: reducing dust generated inside the camera, shaking dust from the sensor each time the camera is turned on or off, and mapping stubborn dust spots for removal with the provided Digital Photo Professional software.

2.5" LCD with Live View mode
In Live View mode, use the bright 2.5” LCD to frame and take shots from awkward angles. During playback, the LCD provides detailed review of shots, and features a wide viewing angle for easy sharing with friends.

Large viewfinder
A large, bright viewfinder allows framing of subjects even in the brightest conditions.

DIGIC III processing
Canon’s cutting-edge DIGIC III processor – as used in professional EOS models - delivers rapid operation, accurate colour reproduction, fast start-up times, and low power consumption.

SD/SDHC memory card compatible
Shooting to the popular SD/SDHC memory card formats, the EOS 1000D is ideal for those who already own SD-compatible devices.

Total image control
Take control over the look and feel of your images with easy to use Picture Style presets. Contrast, sharpness and saturation can be customized in-camera or with Canon’s comprehensive software suite, supplied with the EOS 1000D.

Compact, ultra-lightweight body
The EOS 1000D weighs just 450g – and is ergonomically designed for comfortable handling so it is a truly portable SLR.

EF lenses and accessories
The EOS 1000D is compatible with the complete range of EF and EF-S lenses, Speedlite EX flash units and EOS system accessories. [/INDENT]

Pretty good deal actually, similar to the D60 that was on offer

Isn't this the same price everywhere else? jacobs etc?

This is a wonderful way to get into DSLR technology. Excellent camera, good price.

Also, this is the image stabilised lens which has superior optics to the non-IS version.

oooh thanks for that....

So according to that the Sony A200 would be better if it had live view and the A300/350 *is* better because it *has* live view....

Think i'll wait for another Sony deal then :-D
#13
[url]www.camerapricebuster.co.uk[/url] shows this at £284 @ amazon - if £16 in your hand is better than a £20 jessops voucher (it probably is)

I'm just waiting for the 50D to drop below £800...

Can anyone give me a brief idea as to the difference between DSLR and non-DSLR cameras ?
I'm a happy amateur who uses different modes and ISO settings with some success on my Powershot but am worried this might be a bit advanced....

Then this is probably the perfect next step up. If you're already experimenting with a powershot, then this will not really be any more complicated. Might even be easier to use.


The main practical difference between a DSLR and non DSLR is that a DSLR usually has better optics, changable optics (lenses) and is better at fast or low light situations.

Well, the big advantage for me was no shutter lag! Less missed shots. Also an SLR can accept multiple detachable lenses, each of which is designed for a specific purpose. Depending on their photographic needs, owners can attach wide-angle, portrait, telephoto, and other specialty lenses. These detachable lenses tend to have higher-quality optics, which make for sharper photos.

An SLR's viewfinder lets the owner see through the same lens as is used to take the image. Most attached-lens cameras use a viewfinder system, which provides the photographer with a separate window to compose and focus the image. Because of the different vantage point provided by a non-SLR viewfinder, the image the photographer sees can be different than the image that is recorded as the final photo

Please do compare the live view of Sony A300 vs this and esp the delay canon 1000 has when taking a snap on live view....

I did and went in for A300

I don't think they are in the same category. Isn't the A200, EOS 1000, Nikon D40/D60 the same category as they are small digital SLRs? How big is the A300 compared to these?
#22
I bought this last week in jessops. I added a Tamron 70-300 zoom for £99.00 and I was given a 4 gig card for free. I also bought a camera case that was priced at £9.99 but was charged at£4.99 because I had bought the camera bundle. So in all I got the Canon 1000D with 55-70 is zoom and the Tamron 70-300zoom, 4gb card and camera case all for £434 after cashback.
Was actually intending to buy the Nikon d60 but changed my mind because I wanted the live view, sony was ruled out because I only wanted one with a sd card.
So far very happy with camera but I find the long zoom needs to be held by a tripod to stop camera shake. First dslr so still learning.

SLR's are a lot more work, dont buy one if your not going to spend more money than usual and not going ot want to research and learn alot about photography :)

IMO non-slrs are for people that just want to click a button and ta da!

Here's the Sony A200 (about £225) vs the Canon 400D, which has the same sensor as the 1000D:

http://www.cameralabs.com/reviews/Sony_Alpha_DSLR_A200/outdoor_results.shtml
"Apart from a difference in colour balance, the two DSLRs delivered remarkably similar results here when equipped with their kit lenses and default settings. There's arguably a little more foliage detail on the Sony crops, but it's certainly a very close-run thing and we'd be satisfied saying that in this particular test, both cameras essentially delivered the same amount of real-life detail."


There seems to be almost no difference between equivalent Nikon/Canon/Sony models in terms of quality nowadays (esp. with the Nikons using Sony sensors). Choice comes more down to what deal you get, what lenses you have already etc.
#32
Your choice mate but there is a very distict delay on Canon 1000d while taking a shot on live view compared to sony A300 and also kit lens on sony has much better range..

IMO Live view is something quite useful on many occasions.....:-D

cheers

I just use my £380 Canon EOS-450D SLR camera simply as a point-and-click camera, I've never really read the manual, yet the photos this produces are far better than any digital non-SLR I've used.

When taking photos of my 9-month-old daughter, with an SLR, I can press the button and get her expression/pose right there and then, even with the flash. With a non-SLR, I hold down the button, perhaps a pre-flash-flash will go off,then the main flash, and by the time the photo's finally taken, she's crawled off and is investigating what's under the sofa.

SLRs are worth every penny, particularly with deals like this. Just think about whether you can be bothered to carry one around with you everywhere.

The Free gift card offer finishes Wednesday 26th november @ mid-night
http://www.jessops.com/online.store/categories/Current%20Offers/%C2%A320%20Gift%20Card%20Promotion/Show.html

I wonder if you can order a camera with the free gift card, and then get a refund on the camera, keeping the gift card?
EDIT: No you can't - just rang to confirm..ho hum
#37
when you order the camera from jessops, you can also get discounts off flashguns if you purchase them at the same time. Also there are other discount codes eg XMAS20 which is £20 off when you spend between £300 and £600 which you can use when buying accessories.

I bought a Canon 450D at the weekend with the Jessops 360 flashgun. Using the XMAS20 code, the flashgun only cost me £50 (normally £100) and I also got the £20 gift card as well.

Or, there are cheap flashes available at a similar price: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sunpak-PF-30X-Flash-E-TTL-Canon/dp/B000PGTFPA/ref=sr_1_12?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1227610764&sr=8-12 as the jessops one is not compaible with all EOS SLRs (e.g. the 50D). Please note however, the above linked flash does not swivel.

typical Hotdeals - lazy to the last.

Ok, here's one example.
7dayshop - £10 cheaper. Still free delivery. Plus £30 Canon Cashback.

I'll leave you to find all the others (hint: 7dayshop arent the cheapest! )
:roll: :roll: :roll:


Do you post these deals or do you just keep them a secret and talk in riddles? It's good to share like the other people on hotukdeals.
