Canon EOS Digital Rebel Review

Review Date: Nov 24, 2003

Category: Serious to Advanced Amateur

Canon EOS Digital Rebel 

Image Quality

The Canon EOS Digital Rebel is a digital camera targeted to serious and advanced amateur photographers and its image quality is comparable to other 6 megapixels resolution professional digital SLR cameras. It produces image quality professionals make a living by -- and that far surpasses anything currently output by consumer and prosumer digital cameras. In other words, image quality and feature-wise, the EOS Digital Rebel is a professional dSLR with a price point that makes it accessible to the amateur photographers.

Since most of you are interested in the EOS Digital Rebel because of the professional level image quality made possible by the large image sensor, I have taken a number of the picture samples at the high ISOs of 400, 800 and 1600 so you can have an idea of the presence or absence of noise at those ISOs. Of course, I have also included pictures at ISO 100, the lowest ISO on the EOS Digital Rebel. The minimal noise present at high ISOs opens up low-light and action picture possibilities once reserved only to those who could afford the expensive professional dSLRs.

For this review, I used the following settings as my preferred settings:

  • Shooting Mode: Program AE
  • Metering Mode: Evaluative (default)
  • ISO: 100
  • Image Size: 3072x2048 (Large)
  • Image Quality: Fine
  • White Balance: Auto

All the pictures on this and the other pages (including the navigation pictures at the top of each page) have been taken by the EOS Digital Rebel for this review. The pictures on this page provide a good sample of what the EOS Digital Rebel is capable of and I have provided the 800x533 version. Remember that this version is of slightly lesser quality than the original 3072x2048 version. Please open and download only once to your hard drive -- and save me some precious bandwidth. Thanks!

Clicking on a picture version will display the 800x600 version image in a separate window. Leave that separate window up for all the other images will also display in that same separate window.
