    450D Samples - DPReview

    DPREVIEW has posted first samples of photos taken with the 450D ranging from ISO100 to ISO1600. Nice.... but I did not download the 4-5MB files to check noise performance on the 100% crops.

    40D Dust Speck

    There is a speck of dust in my 40D viewfinder. Figure out is not the lens. Figure out it is not the mirror, take out the focussing screen and it is still there, so it is somewhere in the pentaprism - diffficult to access and clean. I suppose I have to take it to CSC for cleaning. Just a...

    Good Value DSLRs

    Used DSLRs are great value now. Given a half decent lens, they still deliver speed, low noise, and good pictures that compacts can never achieve. e.g. D30 recently sold for under $200 300D going for under $400, even under $300! 10D going for under $500 20D going for under $750 The...

    Ixus Ixy Elph

    Canon is certainly managing to confuse people by having not only different names but numbers for different IXUS models - especially so when you are trying to read reviews from different countries and wondering "which is the local equivalent". Well, just look here - and it is quite up to date...

    Dang - after a few weeks, found that my F31fd has 1 hot pixel. Any one else checked for hot pixels? Any out there? Do you know if Fuji will replace cam or map out the hot pixel?

    Why Canon EX has better exposure accuracy than Sigma 500

    OK I have been using a Sigma 500 DG Super and struggling with the exposure accuracy of the E-TTL flash (300D, not E-TTL2). The theory has been that the camera determines the flash output and not the flash, so it should not be any different from a Canon EX flash. I think some of us have found...

    300D Rotary Switch Faulty

    Any 300D users out there encountered this problem? My 300D rotary switch (i.e. the one next to the shutter release button for aperture, shutter speed etc) has a problem where it sometimes works and it sometimes doesn't. E.g. in M (manual) mode, if I want to change shutter speed, I turn the...
