Pros:Price, compactness and weight compared to other SLRs
Cons:dark viewfinder, autofocus, ISO seal
Opinion:To be a REFLEX I found it very light, compact and easy to use. Hard-to-find features in this category of cameras. The viewfinder is terrible, even my Olympus OM-10 of the 80s beats it, the focus points are really few and the ISO seal is terrible (and it was to be expected since the sensor reaches a maximum of 6400 ISO, lowering the noise threshold a lot). We are on the most entry-level entry-level ever
Opinion:My first approach to the DSLR, used for five years. I consider it a great body to start studying matter, as long as you forget the automatic modes and make a commitment to learn the basics (for those who want a functional and unpretentious travel body instead it is excellent). The body is practical to carry, ergonomic and fast to master. For what it costs, the image quality is good, as well as that video (in the used market today you can take one for about 150 euros). The lack of an external microphone input (the built-in one is quite croaking) is a sore note. It is good not to stop at the kit lens (although I must say that over time I have re-evaluated the much-mipped 18-55) and take optics that will remain after any upgrades (in this regard carefully evaluate compatibility aps-c full-frame). For example with Samyang 35 1.4 he gave me a lot of satisfaction and taught me the importance of the manual.
Cons:ISO seal, few focus points, dark viewfinder, monitor resolution not always up to par
Opinion:This is my first DSLR, purchased at a very affordable cost: it is an entry-level useful to all those who want to switch from compact to reflex and allows you to learn how to manage aperture diaphragm, exposure times and ISO. Personally, I recommend that you set it right away on manual mode so as not to get used to the pre-set modes. In addition to the optics in kit (in my case, 18-55 mm), you can combine targets with both EF and EF-S attack, both Canon and other compatible brands, so there is for all tastes and pockets. The materials are discreet and the machine is ergonomic; The buttons are easy to access. It's not tropicalized, but I take it with me on my travels and so far - taking the necessary precautions - it hasn't been affected by this lack. After now 4 years of use, in the long run the focus points begin to close (they are only 9, a little bit... and by the way the only reliable is the central) and the ISO seal (from 800 and up, the noise is heard), but nothing that at the moment leads me to change it with a more advanced reflex.
Opinion:This entry level of the Canon is ideal for anyone approaching the photograph, or wants something more "professional" than the compact in the market. I recommend not stopping at the 18-55 lens included in the package, expanding the lens park with something even more professional to fully exploit the quality of this SLR! Vidoe excellent quality in Full HD.
Pros:Basic reflex but with the necessary functions valid
Cons:ISO Estate But nothing particular considering the cost
Opinion:I took it a few years ago as a second room and I must say that I carry it unpretentious. About 3 years ago I took a shot in the mountains with snow mounting the 18-135 STM and I must say that the result was excellent. The burst is not to be considered as other limits of functions but nevertheless it behaves more than good for the basic photography and anyway the sensor is good. Considering the value for money could deserve almost a 9.
