Nice pictures when its working
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I had this camera for a short time before I needed to get a new memory card. I assumed it was a faulty card. Ended up being the camera. You have to send this in to NJ or CA for repair - very inconvient. When it came back I still cannot use. I have no idea again if its the card or the camera. This was a wonderful camera when it was working. The pictures were amazing. The down time doesnt make it worth it though.
Excerpt: I really love my Canon Rebel Xti. This is a great starting camera for anyone who would like to start a profession in photography or just people who take a lot of pictures! The color quality is amazing and the menu is very easy to use. I think a couple things that I didn't like about this camera is the starting lens isn't the greatest at all. It doesn't zoom very far and you can't get THAT close to your object.
Excerpt: But I don't. It gets the job done somewhat but for the price it's not nearly as good as it should be. There are lag times between shots so when you're trying to capture a fleeting moment it's hit or miss. You cannot use the digital viewfinder if you're using any of the automatic settings and the manual eye rest viewfinder is uncomfortable. Pros: It does have a great battery life. Good camera for indoor lighting. Cons: Lag time between shots sometimes. Bulky.
Excerpt: My husband and I bought this camera as our first "professional" camera. We have yet to learn all of the features. However, we are still able to get great photos on the automatic feature. I wish I didn't have to always look into the lens, however the newer version fixes this. The camera is easy to use (at least on the automatic setting). THe manual that it comes with gives pointers on how to use it. Ours also came with a bag.
Summary: bought the Rebel XTI with 2 stabilizer lenses. Everything works as advertised. I am really disappointed in the quality of the pictures. I have a couple other low end cameras that give me a sharper focused picture than the XTI. I live on a hill overlooking a valley with Zion national park on the other side. I love taking pictures of the sunrises over Zion. Both my old Fuji S5000 and my Fuji F30 give me MUCH sharper images.
Summary: Its a great snap and shoot, but as far as getting what you want in a manual mode, sometimes you need to switch over to no flash mode when you don't want flash and other small things like that that bother me, though I have not read through the camera details yet. It does take lovely photos, especially at night and the turn on and shoot time is amazing. The price cannot be beat for this camera.
