Canon Rebel XTi Review
30 November 2009
Summary: Canon's Rebel series of digital cameras has been popular since its introduction. These digital SLRs provide much of the power and control of the higher priced models without their complexity. They are best suited for people who care a lot about their pictures, even if they aren't professionals.
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...
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.

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.
Excerpt: Call this the season of the 10-megapixel digital single lens reflex camera. By the time Santa appears in the Thanksgiving Day parade, enthusiasts will have four 10MP D-SLRs to choose from. In this quartet are the Sony alpha DSLR-A100 , the Nikon D80 , the Pentax K10D and the Canon Digital Rebel XTi.
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
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.
Excerpt: Canon is one company that really tries to corner the market with cameras, and can do so. This entry is really a third generation into their “affordable” entry-level series. It’s a lightweight SLR digital, and it’s quite compact.
Summary: There’s no doubt that the 400D will be just as successful as the 350D, if not more so. Canon has added some really useful features and made a camera different enough to warrant an upgrade, without changing the basic functionality of previous models.
Pros: Compact, build quality, dust reduction, improved AF, good Raw file quality.
Cons: Chroma noise especially in JPEGs, position of DoF preview button, limited purchase of right-hand grip.
