Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi (EOS 400D) Digital Camera Review
12 September 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. Itâ€™s based on the second generation DIGIC II Image Processor, compatible with more than 50 EF and EF-S lenses. This camera has a high-precision 9-point AF system for speedy and accurate focusing in any situation.
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. The significance of the actual developments clearly becomes apparent when putting the Canon EOS 400D next to the EOS 300D. The camera has evolved from a stripped down model, of which a price breakthrough was a main asset, to a full-fledged 10 Megapixel camera.
Excerpt: The draw of this camera for many will be the high megapixel count at an affordable price, the Canon DIGIC software and the years of Canon digital experience built into the unit. Having recently tested some of the newer entrants into the field this experience should not be underestimated. But what might the attraction be for those who see the Rebel as a more of an amateur DSLR and not up to snuff for their photography?
Excerpt: Just three years ago Canon started a revolution with the 6.3MP EOS Digital Rebel -- the first digital SLR to sell for less than $1,000 with lens. That revolution has been such a wild success that the third-generation Reb, the XTi, arrives with 10.1MP, loads of high-end features, and an even lower price -- and still finds itself in a battle with four other manufacturers for that same piece of turf.
Excerpt: Can you still be called a Rebel after you snag a pile of assets from your well-to-do siblings? Canon obviously thinks so, given that its new EOS Digital Rebel XTi has been loaded up with power and features taken from its EOS 30D and 5D cameras -- plus one advanced system seen on no other Canon digital SLR.
