DP Review
24 December 2008
  • Conclusion: The EOS 450D represents Canon's response to the increasingly crowded and competitive nature of the entry-level DSLR market. Where the original 'people's DLSR', the EOS 300D, owed at least some of its success to the simple paucity of competitors, the market in 2008 is a very different place indeed,...
  • Pros: Superb resolution, good per-pixel sharpness (especially in raw files), Good tonal response and dynamic range, Trademark Canon CMOS noise free images, remain detailed even at high sensitivities, Optional high ISO NR removes all chroma noise, Viewfinder bigger and brighter than predecessors, New fe...
  • Cons: Average automatic white balance performance, still very poor under incandescent light, Limited exposure compensation range (+/- 2.0 EV), Contrast detect AF so slow it's useless for most types of photography, Metering has tendency to overexpose in very bright, contrasty conditions, Default JPEG ou...

Canon EOS Rebel XSi Review

LAPTOP Magazine
22 July 2008
  • Summary: Though Canon has already produced a pair of decent if unspectacular successors to the original digital Rebel, the new XSi is the first model that offers a definitive leap forward.

Review: Canon Rebel Xsi

Wired
12 May 2008
  • Excerpt: Last year’s Rebel XTi was a massive sales success, but not exactly a technological leap forward for DSLRs. Most critiques of that camera (including ours) came up just shy of disappointment while competing manufacturers of entry level DSLRs toiled to produce better, cheaper shooters.
  • Pros: Switch to SDHC memory. Relatively low noise at high ISO settings. New battery with 50% more endurance.
  • Cons: ISO tops out at 1600. Plastic body seems too plasticy. ISO in only full stop increments. Lacks the useful HELP mode of its major competitors. A tad bit pricey.

Canon EOS Rebel XSi Review

Digitaltrends
6 May 2008
  • Conclusion: We hate to sound like a skipping Internet audio stream, but it’s very easy to recommend the Canon Rebel XSi. It’s a fast-focusing, speedy D-SLR that delivers excellent photos both indoors and outside.
  • Pros: Takes fast pictures; excellent picture quality; includes IS lens
  • Cons: Live View could be better; flimsy door covering connections

Canon EOS 450D DSLR

  • Excerpt: Picture the photographers at a football match. Behind the goals are the true professionals, with multiple cameras and huge lenses, while up in the stands are the amateurs with their cameraphones. Somewhere in the middle of this spectrum sits the EOS 450D.

Canon EOS-450D review

Digital Arts
24 January 2009
  • Excerpt: Canon’s latest digital SLR – the EOS 450D – will be of interest to creatives who aren’t professional photographers. Over the entry-level EOS 400D, the new model adds 14-bit capture, Live View with both phase- (viewfinder AF) and contrast-detection AF, as well as a larger 3-inch LCD and faster...
  • Pros: Lightweight and easy-to-use body; generally good and responsive handling; handy Live View and IS options; entirely usable ISO range.
  • Cons: Little significance in detail over 10-megapixel offerings; ISO 1600 maximum is on the low side; some autofocus inaccuracies.
