You can also quickly shift between Canon's picture modes (in-camera processing) the same way. There's also a dedicated button for white balance, and, nestled behind the front jog dial, another for quickly switching ISO. The only usability complaint is, once you've chosen to change a setting using a button on the back, you can't use the jog dial to flick between options – you have to use the navpad instead. The ISO button is a curious exception to the rule.

Verdict

The 1000D is a fantastic camera, packed with features and enviably upgradeable. For beginners, the Nikon D3000's on-screen help system will surely win out. And, while the 1000D's test images suggest marginally better high-ISO performance than the D3000, the difference is truly minimal. For those a little more comfortable with the technicalities of shooting with a DSLR, however, the Canon doesn't disappoint in the slightest. ®
