today I checked the 300V (or as in the US shops Rebel ti) in a ware house. It realy has a science fiction design!
What I did not like was that the control wheel moved from left to right, which I found not only confusing but bothering.
The back side display seems very usefull.
Most of all the stainless steel lens mount makes sens at last.
The vendor also assured improvements of the focusing points and autofocus performance.
So why should anybody still buy a 300?
I used Canon AE1 for a 7 yrs and now i am planning to buy a AF camera. i was not able to decide whether to buy Rebel Ti or Elan 7.after reading lot of reviews i decided to buy Rebel Ti. most people advised to buy Elan 7 b'cos its rated higher than the Rebel series, but the major differences i can see between Elan 7(NOT ELAN 7E) & Rebel Ti is the shutter speed of 1/4000 & 4fps. since i decided to keep my budget not to cross $350, i am planning to buy Rebel Ti. plz let me know if i am making a good choice for this price and if there are any othere models for this price plz let me know.I am planning to buy at B&H,NY.
I have been using the 300v for the last couple of months. It is a very capable camera, plus light and versatile. Auto focus system is fast and accurate. Programmed bracketing works great. Large LCD display ttok a little while to adjust to but is excellent feature. The lens that come with the standard package are not very good, so my advice is by the 300v body and invest in a decent lens to get the fully capabilty from the body
Thanks a lot for your advise. i need one more help from you. for 28-90 lens... USM technology required ? and if i plan to buy the body separate and lens separate can you suggest which lens to go for better quality since i have no plans to invest for atleast 1yr. is 28-105mm lens ok and the quality is good?
do reply me
I bought the 50mm 1.8 fixed lens, which is relatively cheap, Â£79 in UK $80 dollars in the USA. This gives excellent results image wise and you can shoot in low light conditions. I also use the 24mm-85 for my zoom.
See the links below for good info which should help you choose.
I decided to buy Rebel Ti and i am now concerned about the lens. carry on with the one which comes with the kit (28-90mm) or go for 28-105mm(since people were telling the quality is not good with the one which comes with the kit).
Help me out.
EOS300V is not bad for what its costs. It is excellent for beginners. For more advanced users I believe EOS30N/33N/Elan7N/Elan7NE would be better, assuming you are ready to spend more money.
I heard that the mirror movement mechanism at EOS300V has a lifetime of some 10000 exposures (I am not sure about that, please check with others!). That means some 275 rolls of film with 36 exposures per roll. If you shoot 100 rolls / year then the life time for the EOS300V might get quickly exhausted. But for what it has costed it is not so bad and you will have the opportunity to renew your equipment ) I also heard that the mirror mechanism on EOS3 has a lifetime of 50000 exposures, which is significantly better. I do not know how this situation is rated at EOS30N/33N/Elan7N/Elan7NE. If anybody knows concrete data about this isue it might be interestening to see comments.
The ergonomics - and the cost - of the camera is what makes it stand atop others...( in the same category) however the lens quality does not match the body..
The light weight of the camera is also handy at times..
