Canon EOS 1000D / Rebel XS

Canon EOS 1000D / XS video tour


We’re pleased to present a short video tour of the Canon EOS 1000D / XS. This demonstrates the 1000D / XS’s design, controls, live view and PC remote control systems.

There’s no need to download any new software – just press the play button in the middle of the screen below and wait for the video to start; you may need to press the button twice. The quality and any delay before playing may vary depending on your internet connection.

If the video is unavailable, please try again later. This is due to maintenance at YouTube.
