As well as being compared against other entry-level DSLRs, the Canon EOS 350D is also often compared to pro DSLRs, super zooms, mirrorless and pro digicams. The Canon EOS 350D's top rivals come from Canon (such as the EOS 1100D and the EOS 600D) and Fujifilm (such as the FinePix S4200 and the FinePix SL300)
