EOS Kiss Digital X  vs 1100D 

1/30th sec, F5.6, ISO 100 At 100 ISO the picture is clean, well detailed and noise free, everything we've come to expect from a Canon DSLR.
EOS Kiss Digital X

In terms of looks, build and sheer usability, this tiny powerhouse of a camera borrows heavily from its acclaimed forerunner, the hugely successful and very likeable eightmegapixel 350D.
