"An awesome camera!"5.0 starson by JaBurd
Pros: 8.0 mega pixels, A great lens, Good flash, Fast, Fast, Fast
Cons: Although the camera is smaller than its Digital Rebel counterpart, large hands will take some adjustment time to get comfortable with this camera.
Summary: This is the best camera I have ever used. Wanting to get back in touch with my High School and College photography days I finally broke down and upgraded our digital camera to the Canon DR XT. The images this camera creates are absolutely stunning. Users must understand that photography takes practice and no camera will take a perfect picture every time. Professionals are able to take great pictures from years of experimentation, trial and error, and practice. This camera will allow someone who has great photography knowledge to take advantage of all it's amazing features. It is also a great camera for the beginner with a thirst for learning all about photograpy.
This camera is just flat out fast. Given I am coming from the background of an older Digital Point and shoot. There is just no waiting for any aspect of this camera. Instant power on, The focus is fast, the shutter has no delay, it records images to the compact flash instantly (I am using a 1 gb CFII card), and the flash is ready for another shot in less than half a second.
There is little room for improvement for this camera given it's target price range. It took me about a day to get my large hands to adjust to the size of the body. Definately go to a store to hold it and see how it feels.
I would highly reccommend this camera and have not come across anything that it leaves me wishing it had.
