The Canon EOS 350D is a great camera that's reasonably priced which performs well in lots of situations.
It's well made, having the main body mostly formed from good quality plastic giving it a nice solid feel without being too heavy or bulky.
All the controls are well laid out and easy to use despite the camera being fairly small, plus the lenses are quick and easy to swap over.
The battery life is good, even when using the flash a lot. (read more)

I have had this camera for about 2 years now and it is very good. It is so fun going out and taking picture, you never know what you will find. It did take a while to get used to all the settings and understand it. But once I had learnt how to use it, it was stunning. It is well built and there are many extra's like filters, lenses, tripods, etc. to help improve your images.I HIGHLY recommend this SLR Camera. (read more)

It's simply not true that the 400D is a better camera.
Following the flawed market hype that more megapixels = better, the 400D has an extra 2MP without Canon increasing the sensor size.
So, instead of better photographs, for the most part you'll find more digital noise. Granted, the colour display is not as large, but the inclusion of an LCD status display on the 350D is a welcome one, (and surely an important feature on an SLR) increasing battery life and offering all the info you need....

I have had many Canon cameras over the years and I have found the EOS 350D good in all aspects of use. The lens speed is a definite improvement over the previous model. (read more)

For a cheap SLR its hard to beat the Canon EOS 350D. beg. 2007 (but look at 400D approx same, all in all a little better for the most part - the 350 better than a few)
Canons 50mm are fantastic, and this cams makes it an 85 mm. So it you need a low light tele cam, this is it;)
Look at dpreview.com - I more or less agree with the data here. (read more)

The Canon EOS 350D is good, but not as good as the similarly priced Canon 400D. Small size and good images but the screen is too small and images are too soft and require sharpening. Check out the 10-Megapixel 400D. (read more)

The Canon EOS 350D is an easy to use camera that gives pictures that look like a professional photographer has taken them. I would recommend getting a 300mm lens with it because they give brilliant magnification. (read more)

I love this Canon EOS 350D camera, it's brilliant. Having never used an SLR before, I spent a while learning everything I could about photography. The 350D made my learning easy, so then when I splashed out on some great lenses the pictures I got back were ace. I'm now considering a 5D but the 350D was a superb buy and if I couldn't get the 5D for whatever reason it wouldn't really bother me too much as the 350D does a great job anyway.
Highly recommended and will always consider Canon... (read more)

I was trying to justify to myself that I could make good use of this Canon EOS 350D Camera and that the extra expense over a high end digital camera was worth it. Thankfully I was proved right. This camera lacks nothing that a digital camera has, with the added benefit of being able to pick and chose from a wide range of lenses and other accessories already on the market for analogue SLR's. It really is the best of both worlds, OK it is more expensive to start with, but I won't be looking... (read more)

I had never handled A Canon EOS 350D digital camera, and I never cared to own one as I always read, to quote "the camera is tiny and looks like a toy."
I was talked into trying one when I went into a store to buy a laptop, and the guy said he would give me a discount. I was very surprised how well it fit in my hand, and I don`t have tiny hands. The camera could have been designed just for me! All the controls fall very readily to hand. Auto white balance in outdoor use is fantastic.... (read more)

The Canon EOS 350D is a great digital camera for the price, and it is definitely one for both novices and more experienced photographers. It can be used as a point and shoot in Auto, or you can be creative with full manual controls. It has more features than its predecessor the 300D, and can do just about everything its bigger brother the 20D can do. Image quality is excellent, and with its fast start-up you won't miss a thing.
It's very light and easy to carry around, which is great if you... (read more)

I bought the Canon EOS 350D digital camera after struggling for years with normal compact digital cameras, and what a difference! In the Auto mode you simply can't go wrong. Just point and shoot! The pictures in this mode are awesome, and some almost looking 3D as the depth is so nice. I have had a little play with the creative functions, and they seem straight forward enough too, but I need to spend more time looking at them.
Overall, I am so glad I bought this camera, and it does... (read more)

I have had my Canon EOS 350D digital camera for about a month. It is everything I'd hoped for. I was a little reticent about purchasing it as it seemed a large expense for a hobby. I wasn't sure it would be much better than my Nikon 5700. I am now very happy, and I have sold the Nikon.
I have had many film SLR's, and this is very similar to operate. I found it much easier to use than all the digital prosumer models I've had previously. The automatic mode is great and it produces great... (read more)

Like many people, I converted from film SLR's to Digital Compacts, and lost a lot of my enthusiasm for taking photographs - too much "point and shoot". After various non-SLR digital cameras, I moved up to a full SLR with the Canon EOS 350D in April 2005. Fantastic!! It has restored my love for photography. And it has a great to feel the mechanical "clunk" of a proper SLR again.
Some people say the camera is too small - I strongly disagree. I have large hands and never find it a... (read more)

I have owned a few SLR manual and semi-automatic 35mm cameras and one other digital camera (Canon). I can only assume that I have a faulty Canon EOS 350D camera, as I cannot get any sharp images when using the sports mode, and when I use the shutter speed override I have to use flash to allow any light. I have used shutter priority on other cameras and had some good action shots, but it won't work on my EOS 350D. I have a standard 28-50 lens and also a 28-200 lens, so maybe it is camera...

I use the Canon EOS 350D digital camera with a 80-200mm zoom lens for photographing rugby and cricket games. In reasonable daylight and using only half the possible size of photos it's possible to take lots of shots in quick succession, ensuring at least one good one from every ten. But as soon as you go up to maximum quality, and therefore file size, the speed of data capture gets in the way, as does poor light, with blurred images being a problem. For the price though, this is now... (read more)

Despite the above shortcomings, I would thoroughly recommend the Canon EOS 350D digital camera to any serious photographer, or anyone making their first step into DSLR. However, I would not recommend this as a first camera, as the myriad of settings I feel would be very confusing. Having said that, it is possible to use it on fully automatic and simply point and shoot, but there are plenty of cheaper cameras on the market that already offer that.
One further recommendation to anyone... (read more)
