Canon has announced the EOS-350D, an upgraded version of the popular EOS-300D. The 300D has been lauded with kickstarting the 'low-cost', sub-£1,000 (inc VAT) SLR market which has also seen models such as the E-1 and E-300 from Olympus. The 350D adds features and functions found on Canon's higher-end digital SLRs.
The EOS-350D features an APS-C size 8.0-megapixel CMOS sensor, up from the 300D's 6.3mp sensor. This allows the 350D to produce stills up to 3,456-x-2,304 pixels in size - in RAW, TIF or JPG formats - and from ISO 100 to ISO 1,600. The 350D replaces the 300D's DIGIC image processor with the DIGIC II processor, as found in the more expensive EOS-1D Mark II and EOS-1Ds Mark II cameras.
The EOS-300D will ship in March for £638 plus VAT for the body alone or £680 plus VAT bundled with an EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 II lens kit.
