this camera seems to make me some what better than i am at photography, all you need to do is lern how to compose and get the lighting right! the camera does the rest. there are to many features to name, the only thing i don't like ! i wish it was a digital slr, but for the price you can't beat it.

The camera that I used to take these photos is the same camera that I use to take photos for my annual yearbook. We bought it for school, so not everything is adjustable for the use of outside photography but overall is it a very nice camera.

I am an amateur and this is my first digital camera I have ever owned, so it is hard for me to rate it. I guess if I had to say I would like to have more mega pixels to produce larger prints.

The only thing I really dislike about this camera is that it's so old. I cannot compare it to any recent models of the Canon Rebel SLRs because I've never used one, but so far this camera has been nothing but reliable and of a very high quality.

It is simple and easy to learn on. Probably best for the student learning in a darkroom, and learning exposure time and shutter speeds.

I am using a Canon EOS Rebel XS with a 28-80mm Aspherical Sigma lens, a Sigma 70-300mm zoom/Telephoto lens f/4-5.6 both with Macro function. This equipment has been working excelent for me since I bought it. The only thing I don't like about the XS is that only has one focusing point and that is not very fast (only 1/2000). My next move is an Elan 7NE.

I like this camera alot with the ability as I learn to use the automatic settings as well as the manual settings. You also get great image quality as long as you know what you are doing. The only thing is that with the 35mm film format you buy every print rather than pick and choose with the digital.

I like the portrait, landscape, flower, and action features. It takes the guesswork out of it. I also like the auto focus, most of the time. Manual focus is better the darker it is. I'm new to the settings portion of cameras. At my job we dont have to worry about the settings.I do hope to learn more about my camera though.

Its a solid bare bones camera. I used to for a couple of years when I first started out and it was wonderful. If you are looking for something to learn the basic functions of a camera, this is definitely for you. Since all Canon's have similar layouts, if you learn the functions of this camera, you won't have trouble upgrading later on. No frills, no thrills, but you'll get some quality photos and have a lot of fun with this camera.

This camera is great for a beginner SLR. I like that it is both manual and automatic. I prefer digital now. Will upgrade to a digital rebel or the 10D

I truly enjoy my Rebel. As I am a novice I use it mostly for 'point and shoot' but have learned a few techniques. I use 35-80 and 75-300 lens. I have yet to buy a wide angle and some of the 'fun' accessories although I have had this camera for quite some time. Ease of use is only one of the many features that were appealing to me when I purchased it.

I very much enjoy may camera. It takes great pictures. I would imagine that it would take much better pictures if I knew how to work everything on it. The only thing I do not like is the zoom. I need a better zoom than what I have.

This camera has served me well for over 10 years. The only thing that I do not like about the camera is the automatic pop-up flash. I have gotten around that by using a hot shoe attachment but not connecting the hot shoe to a flash. For the price, this is an excellant camera.

This camera was a gift and an addition to my Minolta XG-7's. I have used the automatic functionality in both auto and manual modes with great results. The only down fall I have found is the cost of Canon brand lenses. The generic line are functional but do not have the clarity of the Canon line. For a gift, I am very happy with the camera.

I enjoy my camera because of all of the options it has with it. If I am in a hurry, I can put it on auto-focus, if I am really concentrating I can manually focus it. I would like a longer telophoto lens eventually, to photograph wildlife. I received it for a gift, and would recommend it to anyone who knows what they are doing, but still learning as well.

This is my first and only SLR camera. I puchased it when it first came onto the market. I find it very easy to use both on automatic and creative modes.I use it both in work and leisure situations, mostly on automatic. I recently purchased a flash gun and this has been very beneficial. The camera is light and easy to hold. When on holiday and on photoshoots for my camera club competitions, I tend to use slide film and this camera produces good results.

I have found the Rebel X an excellent camera for pro or amature. I have not perfect vision, but because of the camera's auto focus capabilities, I am able to continue my hobby still and enjoy the gratifing results. It is somewhat light and I think durable. It has been passed between me and my freind 4 x's for the past 2 years before me taking final custody the past 6 months. The accesories(lenses,flash cord, etc) are alittle price'e, due to it's auto focus option. But well worth the money I have spent for the "extra toys". I am very pleased with it and I will be keeping it this time..for sure!! I am very pleased. I think anyone interested in a great first camera that takes million dollar pictures for not to price'e of a tag(used). A must for all interested in takeing up photogrophy.

A decent camera, especially for a beginner like me. The camera was affordable, and even though I wanted to buy the Rebel 2000, I purchased the Rebel X instead. I enjoyed the Rebel X, despite the fact that it did not have a built-in flash. It was easy to use and I enjoyed taking pictures with it. I was extremely disappointed that the camera broke down, especially considering the fact that I didn't use the camera that much. I would have given the camera a higher rating if it lasted longer. I am much happier with my new camera, the Maxxum 7. I highly recommend *that* camera.

It has taken me about a year, but I finally got to the point where I understand how light,shadows and film all work together. When I first got the camera, I was about to throw it in the garbage. Now that I have put about 40 rolls of film through it and played with it without any film it it, I get my rolls of film back with very few if any bad pictures. Now I wouldn't give it up. Unless I were to buy a new one. I thought I would save some money and buy it at a pawn shop. Well after tax I should have just bought a new one. That's what I get for not checking into it more. It's been great. I even left it outside one night in the camera bag. Well, it happened to rain that night. It still works great.

If your looking for a good quality 35mm and very inexpensive, this is the best for me. It has all auto and manual so it gives you the choice to do it all yourself or let the camera do it for you. A great beginners camera for starters.

My camera has been taking great photos long before I was interested in photography. I get many positive comments about the quality of the photo and people think is it my skills instead of the camera.

What I like about this camera is the fact that you can have the best of both worlds. You are able to let the camera handle everything and just press the button in the automatic mode, or you can switch to manual and play with the aperture and shutter speeds.

very light, very good autofocus, lot of automatics but also everything could be done manually, very good choice for beginner as well as semiprofessional!

This is a good quality camera for someone starting out in photography. It has helped me learn the basic exposure controls, including shutters and aperatures. But it lacks some professional features that I now want in a camera.

I bought it hoping that I would 'grow' into it. But I kind of feel like I will need classes to figure it all out. I just end up using it as a point and click.
