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.

According to Canon, the 350D starts up in 0.2 seconds. E-TTL II distance-linked flash metering provides easy, consistent and precise flash exposures.

Canon says writing to memory card is 3.5 times faster and the interface is upgraded to USB 2.0 Hi-Speed for fast image downloads. Mirror lock-up and 2nd curtain flash have also been added.

The 350D also features the same Monochrome mode found on the EOS 20D, allowing users to shoot in black-&-white with a range of filter effects. White Balance correction of both blue/amber and magenta/green bias is available to ±9 levels and WB bracketing is extended to include the magenta/green bias direction.
