Hi Guys
I am currently in possession of a 450D and 1000D body.
Which in your opinion would be the better for imaging?
Do any of them suffer “Amp Glow” ?
My old 350D suffered from amp glow which was quite a pain as taking darks did not seem to get rid of the problem.
Your views would be beneficial to me
Thanks
Graham

I have a 450D and it has served me well.

I understand the 1000D is good also.

I had a 1000D, loved it. Don't ever recall seeing amp glow in my images.

I have a 1000D modded, works great.
In case it helps, Craig Stark of Nebulosity and PHD fame did a review many years ago of 3 Canon DSLRs, one of which is the Rebel XSi which is the US name for the 450D.

The 450D and 1000D are VERY similar cameras, Both use DIGIC3 processors, same ISO range (100 to 1600) . the main difference is the 450D has a 12.2 Megapixel sensor (5.2 micrometer pixel size), whereas the 1000D has a 10.1 Megapixel sensor (5.7 micrometer pixel size). The two cameras came to market within a few months of each other, the 450D in Q2 2008, the 1000D in Q3 2008. They even use the same battery.
