So far so good!!
I was a little nervous about it being a refurb but so far so good. I've had my camera for a few weeks now and I love it. It comes in a Canon white box sealed from the factory. When I opened the box I was suprised that it looked new. There was no visible marks on the body or lens. It operates as a new camera would. I'll update in a month or so .[...]

I just love to take photo's of anything that I see that I like, I don't like luging a lot with me. This kit is great, the bag is good size more lenses, I know thats going to happen soon to. So all & all this is fantastic for me.
I bought this camera as a backup for jobs, and was surprised that it actually looked brand new when I received it. This is a great camera for anyone that wants to take quality photos.[...] Very affordable [...].
When I got this camera, I was surprised that it looked absolutely brand new. Another thing that shocked me was that it had only had about 250 pictures taken with it before I got it. I saved $150 buying this instead of a brand new camera. I was not disappointed and will only buy refurbished Canon cameras from Adorama from now on.
If you're new or fairly new to DSLR's, this is a great way to begin. It is easy to use, easy to learn on, and is a camera you'd keep in your arsenal even as you become more knowledgeable. Meaning it's a camera you can grow with. And when you do want to move on up the Canon line, you're not at a learning curve. Their menu and layout is near the same as the XS, so you just pick up your next Canon right where you left off and keep on growing.
Easy to use. Able to use my old Sigma lens on it.
I am a freelance Videographer and producer. I wanted to offer senior class pictures at my studio. I use a Kodak Z18is for stills in my videos, but wanted to upgrade to a DSLR. The Kodak offers manual controls, and I have used a friend's Canon XTI, so I felt it was time to buy a DSLR. I couldn't believe the price on this XS. Then I noticed it was refurbished. I was very hesitant about buying it. With the reviews here, guarantee, and price I felt confidant about the purchase. [...] Like other reviews, I thought it was new. No, scratches, no marring, not even a smudge. The big selling point for me was the price and guarantee. Do your research to be sure this is the camera for you. I just wanted an inexpensive entry level camera. I shot over 500 pictures the first week I got it. Next purchase for video or photography I will check here first.
I bought this camera as my first DSLR for my family pictures, etc and it's great! I have had it for about 3 months, and I use it weekly. It has been durable and reliable, and even my 5 year old has taken pictures with it. One downside has been the auto-focus, and I have missed a few shots because the lens kept rotating back and forth and couldn't decide how to focus. Otherwise this camera is an A+.
Easy to use. Good for the beginner.
Arrived almost brand new. This camera is a real bargin refurbished, and it looks like it is nearly as good as the newer 1100D!
Leaving the live view and video functions apart, it is a very good camera for photo enthusiasts and beginners
