Taking up Nikon's challenge and a piece of the entry-level pie, Canon releases the 1000D - Canon's so called entry-level Digital SLR (DSLR). Although I remember Canon saying that their last DSLR release, the 450D was entry-level. But I guess the 450D is already so feature-packed, it almost qualifies as a mid-range DSLR.
Some 1000D specifications (full specifications):
- 10.1 Megapixel CMOS and Digic III
- EOS Integrated Cleaning System
- In-Lens Image Stabilization
- SD card compatible
- Universal EOS design
- 3fps continuous shooting
