Excerpt: I’ve been using the Canon Rebel XTi for two years now and really enjoy the camera . The digital SLR takes pictures at a 10-megapixel resolution, which is big enough to print out some fairly large prints (I’ve done a few poster size that have looked awesome). If you’re new to SLR cameras (and I was when I bought it) there is an automatic mode you can use to take pictures that automatically evaluates the scene you’re in and sets up the cameras controls accordingly.
Summary: Bought this camera mainly due to the unique 400plus Hack. Since I purchased the old 400D it became my everyday carry DSLR in place of my far expensive modern DSLR which I use for special occasions. It has its obvious shortcomings in the modern era where 18mp+ HD720-1080p Video reigns supreme. 10mp cropped CMOS sensor, lack of video support, restricted to Compact Flash, ISO sensitivity 1600(3000 can be achieved via 400plus), and lack of live view et cetera...
Summary: The camera I received was in good condition, everything works fine and I am really enjoying it, but if you are looking at one to buy just be aware it does not have live view or some of the later features the new cameras do. The thing I like is it is the third of the price the new cameras are, and the pictures are great, lots of decent lenses fit this camera body and when you decide to upgrade the body, you can still use the lenses.
For the price, Canon EOS 400 Digital Camera is a great starter!

Excerpt: I am a photography student and for the past 3 years have been using the Canon EOS 400. Although I would love to have a Mark II 5D (I can't afford one yet), the EOS 400 has been able to do everything that I need it to do for my classes. I especially like the easy to figure out menu options. Rarely do I ever have to consult the manual. Usually I can scroll through the menu and figure out how to do whatever I need to do.
I wish I had more time to play with the Canon XTI - I love it!

Excerpt: I really love this camera. Although, I must admit I wish I waited a bit and saved up the money to buy the 5d m2 because having this great entry-level SLR just makes me want to become a real photographer and get a REALLY REALLY REALLY great full-scale SLR. I recommend this camera to anyone who wants to move beyond the point-and-shoot and have professional quality photos but not actually be a professional. It is great for all those family moments and trips.
Excerpt: This is the very same setup that I first started using, and I use it to this day. The camera itself is very sturdy, a good thing for someone new to owning a $500 dollar camera body! It can withstand some wear and tear, and has a ton of functions for beginners and advanced users. You can either set it to a fully automatic mode, which chooses lighting, flash, and focus points for you, or you can switch over to manual to gain control of a full set of settings to tweak the...
Excerpt: I've had this camera for about two years, and while I have outgrown it at this point, it has been a good learning tool for me. I appreciate the lightweight design which makes it easier to take along with me wherever I go, but many times wish it was made out of the alloy compound used on the 50D because it feels much more substantial when in use.
Excerpt: We bought the Canon Digital Rebel XTI camera with an 18-55 lens a couple years ago before our first trip to Europe. The camera has been wonderful for us...no major complaints. I have always used it on the Autofocus setting, although it has the manual setting which I need to learn! The controls are fairly easy to find and use. The ones I use the most are on the "wheel" on the top of the camera for soft focus, close-up, portrait, speed, night, etc.
Excerpt: This is the most I have spent on a camera. The one problem with the price is that I'm always afraid I'm going to drop it! So I do recommend having a backup for activities such as boating, etc so you won't worry about losing what $$$ you have put into it. We bought the additional zoom lens and have not used it once. Unless you are trying to take pics of nature, the zoom is probably not necessary. The picture quality is the best I have seen.
Excerpt: This is a great camera for the photo hobbyist. Shutter lag is a bit slow, otherwise photo quality is excellent. Takes a bit to learn all the features this camera has to offer. Price has been coming down so if price was once an issue, it shouldn't be so anymore. Go out and buy one, you won't be disappointed.
