Nope, not labeled digital rebel, mine is labeled 350D, second one in the digital rebel series.

My first DSLR was the 300D, and I still have it in a closet, but its shutter hasn't been actuated in at least four years now (replaced with a 450D in 2009, which felt like a *BIG* upgrade -- moreso than the T4i/T5i feel over my XSi now). It was a great bargain for its time, and no doubt was partially responsible for Canon's dominance of the consumer DSLR market in the 2003-2008 era. But boy, does it feel sluggish and is the LCD screen off-putting by today's standards. Also, I'm fairly sure the largest CF card I ever purchased for it was 2 GB, and I've been all SD since then!

None of which are the true original Digital Rebel (300D) ;)

The title says "who still uses a digital rebel?" Everyone that responded is in fact referring to a digital rebel. My XS for example is a Rebel AND its digital making it a digital Rebel. Way to nit pik though.

I guess the only person you knows the truth behind the question is the OP.
But, I'd hardly think the OP meant to say "who is still using one of today's other eleven mass produced entry level DSLR's" now do we?
I own an SL1, and of course I'm still using that 'Digital Rebel' .. but then I'd be nit picking, wouldn't I!

Only one is labeled 'Digital Rebel' by itself .. all the rest have an additional designation on that label. Also technically all non NA models aren't Rebels at all .. they are xxxD's, xxxxD's or Kiss's.
Is that specific enough for you :)

My 350D is labeled a Digital Rebel XT on the body. And yes, because of the difference in the labeling in other countries it probably would be prudent to specify the model number if you wish to discuss a specific model.

Those two little letters, sigh. So it's got nothing to do with other countries .. you just can't read :razz:

Actually the OP did in fact specify the model number .. and a few of us got it right :)

That was what I assumed too, since the majority of Canon DSLR sold are from the "digital rebel" line, so a bit strange to ask "still uses" about the most currently used of Canon DSLR.

Meaning the 300D on the other hand makes "still uses" meaningful since it locks it down to a body released quite some time ago.

I came in one body too late.

I skipped the Digital Rebel completely back then and went with the 10D.

I still shoot occasionally with my 300D and 50 f/1.8. My batteries don't hold much charge anymore, but I gotta say, that camera can still take a great photo, especially at ISO 100. I replaced it with a 7D about 3.5 years ago.

Get a new, cheap, 3rd-party battery for it. For a day when you really like to make use of this extra camera.

I was surprised how cheap the 3rd party batteries sell for on ebay. I bought a couple and they all work perfectly.

And this thread has me thinking I'll take my 300D back from my son for a few days just to see what I can do with it now that I've got some better lenses, I've taken many great shots with that camera over the years.

People tend to be blinded by marketing and forgetting that the old gear is just as capable now as it was 5 or 10 years ago. What could be used for professional photos 10 years ago can still be used for professional photos.
