I've been experimenting with various ways to magnify, or change the
size of an image. I don't want to use anything that requires a
plug-in. Artscope has something for panning, but it is expensive
and I like this magnifier idea better. As far as I can figure,

Does it add anything to the viewing
experience for you? I'd love to know if you think it or something
like it is useful.

And here is the full review (preview) of the Canon 350 XT.
Absolutely blows me away reading through these specs. One thing I
was dying for was the Custom Function 4, which is how I almost always
used the Elans. It allows you to prefocus by using the AE button
and then shoot away without the camera trying to
refocus. Even with the firmware hack to the 300D,
this feature was missing.
And that this camera is probably going to retail for $899. It is
all moving so quickly. Getting to the point where who knows, the
digital slr will cost the same as the equivalent film camera (one more
18 month cycle I'd guess.) A clean 8 megapixel file is the
equivalent of a 35mm negative (in my opinion). And from a file
storage point of view, I wouldn't want anymore.
