  • Conclusion: Canon has squeezed all the cutting-edge photo tech you could want into a camera that you can (just) afford. A state-of-the-art hotshot.
  • Pros: This little cracker explodes the myth that SLRs are over-sized and over-complicated. Canon puts 12.2-megapixels of photo firepower at your disposal, with a 3-inch Live View screen for aiming and a blistering 3.5 frames per second burst mode, so you can go fully automatic. Picture quality will blow you away and there’s even an optically stabilised 3x zoom lens if all the excitement gives you the shakes. Don’t even worry if life in the trenches gets dirty, the Canon’s d...
  • Cons: Autofocus can be slow and confused in the fog of war – so pop up the flash to activate the reliable AF assist. Although the Canon is on the pricey side compared to some of its rivals, it’s definitely built to last.

  • Conclusion: Canon EOS 450D digital SLR camera Canon have gained a lot of experience in the lower segment of the D-SLR market over the past five years. We have witnessed significant improvements between previous and next models. And now we're here with the Canon EOS 450D. A digital SLR camera that doesn't seem to differ too much from the EOS 400D but is in fact a much better camera. A camera that surprises too.

From the Lab Canon EOS Rebel XSi

Macworld
28 October 2008
  • Excerpt: (1 items) The original Canon EOS Digital Rebel ( ) was the first digital SLR (DSLR) to break the $1,000 price barrier. Since then, Canon has released other Rebel models with smaller bodies and larger feature lists, with the latest being the EOS Rebel XSi . It’s easy to look at the Canon DSLR product line and slot the cameras into “beginner,” “intermediate,” and “advanced” categories But to call the XSi a beginner or starter DSLR is a misnomer.
  • Pros: Very good kit lens, Great image quality, Excellent low-light performance, Live View, Improved body and control layout, Big LCD screen
  • Cons: No top-mounted LCD screen, Limited customization

Canon EOS 450D / Digital Rebel XSi

Camera Labs
1 April 2008
  • Summary: The Canon EOS 450D / Rebel XSi is a powerful DSLR for the money and a worthy successor to the best-selling EOS 400D / XTi. Canon has sensibly followed Nikon’s winning strategy for the D80 and instead of aiming at the lowest price-point, has gone for a more upmarket model with a design and feature-set that will appeal to those who may still be budget-conscious, but see the value of something a little bit classier.
  • Pros: Good handling and image quality., Decent viewfinder and accurate Live View., Kit includes stabilised lens., PC remote control software supplied.
  • Cons: Live View not as fuss-free as Sony A350., Screen fixed in position, unlike A350., Some may find it too small and light., Tempting to upgrade further to EOS 40D.
