The Canon EOS 350D (Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT in North America and the Canon EOS Kiss Digital N in Japan) is an 8.0-megapixel entry-level digital single-lens reflex camera. The model was initially announced in February 2005. It uses Compact Flash storage and a Lithium ion battery. It is the predecessor to the EOS 400D (or Digital Rebel XTi), which was released in August 2006.
The 350D is an upgraded version of the popular Canon EOS 300D, which was the first sub-US$1000 digital SLR, introduced in 2003. The differences between the 350D and the 300D are significant and are present in almost all aspects of the camera. Many of the features 'locked out' by Canon in the 300D were unlocked in this camera, so it has been subject to less unofficial 'hacking' to release the locked features. In addition to these unlocked features, a number of other improvements have been made. Some of the most significant upgrades include:
- 8.0 megapixels (up from 6.3)
- DiG!C II image processor
- Near instantaneous turn on and wake up times (0.2 seconds)
- Compact Flash type II capability (includes microdrives)
- 14 (JPEG) or 4 (RAW) frames continuous shooting buffer
- Smaller and lighter body
- Vastly increased function customizability
- E-TTL II flash algorithm (improvement over the old E-TTL flash algorithm)
- Mirror lock-up
- Selectable AF and metering modes
- USB 2.0 interface (improved from the slower USB 1.1 interface on the 300D)

- Canon had compatibility problems with the Lexar Professional 80x-speed Compact Flash cards which resulted in either total image loss, or the camera freezing up. In the cases of the camera freezing, the images may still be retrieved using an external CF card reader. 
- The camera will interpret the presence of a hot shoe protector as the presence of an auxiliary flash attachment thereby disabling the built-in pop-up flash. Removing the hot shoe protector will re-enable the built-in flash. A micro-switch in the hot-shoe senses the presence of the flash.
- It is possible to bend the male pins of the Compact Flash connector inside the camera. This is an expensive repair which Canon does not offer under warranty. It can happen relatively easily but can be avoided by carefully inserting a new card and feeling for unusual resistance; excessive force is the primary cause but may also be due to the contact surface design of some CF cards. The problem is more of a design issue of the CF card mechanism and can happen in other CF equipped devices. On all Canon DSLRs, the written side of the CF card faces towards the front during insertion.
- Any capacity CF card may be used. If a CF card larger than 8GB is used, it should be formatted on a computer so that the camera can use the CF card's full capacity. The camera will format any CF card, but the capacity after formatting will not be more than 8GB.
- When using third party lenses, most notably older Sigma lenses, there may be a compatibility issue. Reports exist of people receiving "Err99" errors when using such lenses. The problem is more pronounced when using older lens that do not feature an HSM focus drive. Using the problematic lens wide open is sometimes possible.  Another cause of Err99 messages involve EF-S 18-55 lenses (kit lens for the 350D and 20D) that are defective; purchasing used EF-S 18-55 lenses is a risk factor, especially from eBay auctions (some auction listings state if the lens was never used - especially those claiming that the lens was originally part of an EOS 400D kit; the best way is to verify the serial numbers indicating the manufacture date). Either test the lens first alongside a functional EF lens e.g. 28-105 USM and/or 70-300; if the Err99 occurs with the 18-55, the lens are likely to be defective from the factory.
