  • Summary: Overall it is what I was expecting although I am concerned with how tight the lens opening is and how difficult it was to reinstall the lens. Hopefully over some time it will stretch just a little so swapping out lens won't be such a hassle.

  • Summary: The Canon EOS Rebel Xsi Digital SLR Camera Armor Case was close to the expectations that I had formed based on other reviews of the product. Since Cannon does not see fit to produce a true "semi-hard" case for the camera, this product may be the best alternative. The fit is "not 100%", but it is functional.

Great Macros...Poor medium to long range Autofocus

Just another reviewer, Amazon
6 February 2009
  • Summary: I picked up this camera two weeks ago at a local store. Overall, it's a solid camera. Color reproduction is wonderful, it's quick, low noise with high iso, and terrific macros. The camera is blazing fast. Please refer to the other posters for the good points of this camera. Now i'll discuss the shortcomings. The major one, which has been referenced to in various forums such as dpreview and a few online review sites is poor AutoFocus.

Canon Digital Rebel XSi Digital SLR Camera

  • Summary: I use a Sony and Nikon digital cameras, as well as the Canon. The Canon takes wonderful photos, but using the Canon software is cumbersome. it will not work with my HP desktop, but will with my laptop. However, I do not like the Canon software ease of opoeration. If I knew the difficulty of using it, prior to purchase, it would have seriously influenced my non-purchase of this camera.

Good, but has its problems

Jo "Jo", Amazon

  • Summary: Had one of these earlier in the year for a few months, as was very happy with a Canon Powershot A640 and wanted to upgrade to something a little more serious for work, while staying with the Canon brand. I took some great shots but ended up selling the EOS 450D and buying a Nikon. Why? Because of several reasons. Had serious problems with over exposure and focus when paired with a Sigma 70-300mm Lense, to the point of missing several great shots.

Nice but sent two back

Mr. Mac "Maca", Amazon
11 December 2008
  • Summary: I've been using the 400d for two years & thought it was time for a upgrade but I was very disappointed. The first was sent back because it showed a blue Hot Pixel on the image & the second suffered the reported focus problem which many have posted about on various forums. It focused OK about 60% of the time using the Canon kit lens but badly missed focused when using a Sigma 70-300mm APO which works fine with my 400d & looking at the exact same shots using a tripod I...

Carefully Check the Specs Before Purchase

Mr. C. C. Barrett "worldismyoyster", Amazon
7 September 2008
  • Summary: The Canon 450D is a lovely camera to use: it isn't too heavy and has a lot of pre-set modes for taking pictures in various conditions - night time, sport, portrait etc. - which is handy for the beginner who will often like to 'let the camera do the work for them'. There are also other settings that allow much more manual changes, but can combine with automatic features, so is really good for someone trying to learn how to use an SLR step by step.
