Canon 1100D or 100D for Imaging

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

I am getting a Canon 100D ( not the 1000D) and was wondering if there is any benefit over my 1100D for prime focus imaging through my 200p Newtonian.

look forward to any constructive replies

I have a 100d and I love it..very small and lightweight..i don't use it as much nowadays as I'm getting to grips with ccd's, but I use it alot on the S.A. and always take it on holiday with me..awesome little camera..im not familiar with the 1100d so looked it up to compare..

1100D DIGIC 4, 100D DIGIC 5, which usually means less noise at high ISO.

1100D oversamples with your 1000mm FL, 100D even more so.

Not a massive amount between them in practise. I use a pair of 1100Ds and have always found them very satisfactory for an uncooled camera. 

Supposing at some future date you were to get one modded as a dedicated astro camera, which would you prefer to keep unmodded for normal use?
