Reviews Word on the street

EOS 100D  vs 1000D 

But from a buying-advice perspective, its only real advantage over dSLR alternatives is its size, and in that respect it's simply not small enough - especially compared with a mirrorless interchangeable-lens model equipped with a power zoom lens.
EOS 100D

Settings are displayed big and bold and easy to read, and the menu system is intuitive to work around, having been clearly designed around the first time user.
