Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi (EOS 400D) Digital Camera Review
1 October 2007
Excerpt: Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi (400D) is a thrilling new digital SLR, successor to the current EOS 350D (Digital Rebel XT) that offers easy operation and affordability in a lightweight ergonomic body.
Summary: The EOS 400D has a few issues (such as that kit lens) but it is capable of superb results. It is also very easy to use and priced competitively, which all makes it a darn good camera sure to repeat the 350D's success as the fastest selling digital SLR to date.
Pros: Handling and image quality, ease of use, price, dust removal system/prevention, good AF, great colour
Cons: Kit lens' performance is disappointing, lacks spot-metering mode, small viewfinder
Excerpt: Can you still be called a Rebel after you snag a pile of assets from your well-to-do siblings?

Pros: Excellent resolution, lots of detail, not a leap from eight megapixels, but certainly from six, Good color with selectable PictureStyles for different subject types, Good dynamic range (more than peers) with soft roll-off of highlights, 'Integrated Cleaning System' designed to keep dust at bay, W...
Cons: Kit lens disappointing, better to buy body only and spend more on a good lens, Sporadic continuous shooting once buffer is full, Occasional under-exposure issue with Evaluative metering, Average automatic white balance performance, still very poor under incandescent light, ISO, WB, Metering mode ...
Conclusion: Canon EOS 400D digital reflex camera In a mere three years time, Canon have already managed to introduce the third entry-level digital SLR camera. Each camera seems to come with small, yet important improvements.
Summary: In A League Of Its Own After setting the market on fire and creating a new category of affordable D-SLRs, Canon ups the ante by launching the successor to the hugely popular 350D. The new EOS 400D—also known as the 400D Rebel XTi in other parts of the world—is a 10 MP compact digital SLR.
