the oldest of them all (in this site) I bought it before our weding. This was the first reflex camera under 1000$ (I bought it in a kit with a 18-55" lens).

Review (very good one) on this camera can be found in dpreview (the best testing reviewing camera site I know).
Not long after I bought it I've Hacked it using the framework from this site.
This hack rely helps only in a very short (but impotent) list of things.
It enables:
  • ISO 3200
  • Selects the autofocus mode: AIfocusAF, ONEShot.
  • Mirror Lock up - very important for sharp accurate images, the mirror goes up and the camera Shutter opens only after a second.
  • Flash Exposure Compensation using SET button.

The camera was alone, so I had to by her a friend so I bought the 75-300 Canon Lens (after the 1.6 crop factor this is a~ 110-400 lens)

And for fun using a Nokia Headset from my phone as Shutter Release and i've used another switch as focus set.
