Canon EOS Rebel XSi

Nearly five years have come and gone since the Canon company introduced their very first truly affordable SLR, at the time, the EOS 300 D, or the digital rebel. During that time span, we've seen them come out with two more members of the family, the 350D and the 400 D cameras which naturally evolved into the EOS450D, todays model which features just about two times the pixel count of their original.

Contained in a much smaller body and with a much smaller price tag (about 200 dollars less) it also has a great deal more to offer with regard to functionality than its predecessors, or in fact many of the other cameras in this price range.

Some of the changes you're going to see in this version: a far larger 3.0 LCD monitor to make it a lot easier to see the details in your shot, far and away improved auto focus, featuring live view, with AF that offers both passive and contrast detection.

The spot metering as well as the 3.5 frames per second continuous shooting make it worth your time. The changeover to SD as opposed to CF is also a new feature. With the features its inherited from its predecessor, including the optional high ISO noise reduction, the Highlight Tone priority, as well as the all new stabilized kit lens , you're going to enjoy the camera and love the price.

  • memory in a canon rebel xsi digital camera

    does the xsi digital rebel have any internal memory if you dont have a card in

    Answered by Racman007 2009-03-06:

    No, it doesn't. The camera gives you the possibility to shoot pictures without the memory card in it, but there is no internal memory on which it could store

    Answered by Alpes 2009-09-04:

    No, it has external memory.
