Where do I start?
The body is lightweight and easy to hold. The image preview on the 3" screen is high quality and gives a brilliant indication of your final image.
The 15.1 MegaPixel - A welcome addition to digital SLRs, Crisp clear images that look outstanding at any size they are reproduced in!
The 1080p HD recording facility - This really makes a difference to SLR's, a move in the right direction combines a video recorder AND a camera...Why spend your money on sepearate items when this brilliant camera combines the two?
The HD facility of this camera ensures that it can record and show films at the same quality as a HDTV!
The Auto focus makes this camera a really brilliant tool for anybody new to SLR's, it easily focuses giving you the experience of an SLR while you gain practice and experience of the usage of the camera until you have that experience to switch to manual!
Having owned the Canon 350d before this camera the SD memory card slot was a welcome addition compared to the CF card of the 350d.
So to sum it all up why do I recommend this camera? Whether you are a noivice or proffessional photographer this camera has everything! It's user friendly interface, A manual or automatic setting gives an ease of use for first time SLR users.
