About Canon

The Canon EOS Rebel XSi Places Superior Optics and Professional Features Into The Hands of Emerging Photo Enthusiasts with a new Optically Image Stabilized Lens and Professional Features. Canon's EOS Rebel series of digital SLR cameras helped to define and refine what it means to be an entry level digital SLR. Now Canon has redefined that gateway prowess with the introduction of the line's new leader, the 12.2-megapixel EOS Rebel XSi camera.

Incorporating a number of high-end functions and technology found in Canon's professional SLR models, the EOS Rebel XSi camera boasts an improved autofocus sensor, enhanced 14-bit A/D conversion, an advanced Live View function and the proprietary DIGIC III image processor.

When paired with any of the more than 60 compatible Canon EF and EF-S lenses, including optically image stabilized EF-S lenses like the EF-S18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS now included in the EOS Rebel XSi kit or the new EF-S55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS, the EOS Rebel XSi DSLR delivers images that will delight and inspire family and friends at an entry level price tag.

The new EOS Rebel XSi camera is the answer for those who have been waiting to make the leap from digital point-and-shoot to digital SLR or from an older SLR to the latest generation of advanced technology, while still including the creative controls their old camera afforded them.

Canon Features

  • Luxury Feel and Function: At first glance, one notices the Rebel XSi's large, 3-inch LCD monitor, enhanced from the 2.5-inch screen on the Digital Rebel XTi model. The larger 230,000 pixel screen makes it easier for users to review images and scroll through the Rebel XSi camera's menus
  • The EOS Rebel XSi camera features a substantial yet streamlined profile, with curved edges, contoured surfaces, conveniently placed controls and comfortably constructed rubber grip and thumb rest that all contribute to fatigue-reducing hand fit
  • Improved Image Quality: At the heart of the new EOS Rebel XSi is its newly designed 12.2 megapixel APS-C size Canon CMOS sensor. This new sensor employs large microlenses over each pixel to reduce noise and enhance sensitivity up to ISO 1600, which is ideal for high-quality images in low light
  • Another image quality enhancement is the upgrade of the Analog-to-Digital (A/D) conversion process to a 14-bit A/D processor. The inclusion of the 14-bit A/D process means the Rebel XSi camera records up to 16,384 colors per channel
  • The Canon EOS Rebel XSi DSLR also incorporates the optional Highlight Tone Priority and High-ISO Noise Reduction functions first introduced in 2007 with the EOS-1D Mark III Professional Digital SLR and now available for the first time in an entry level Canon digital SLR camera
  • DIGIC III Image Processor: If the 12.2-megapixel APS-C size CMOS sensor is the heart of the camera, then Canon's DIGIC III processor is the brain. The proprietary image processing engine, DIGIC III technology ensures that the fine details and natural colors of the images are optimally recorded
  • Enhanced Live View: Introduced in 2007 on the EOS-1D Mark III DSLR, this function makes its debut in an entry level Canon DSLR with the EOS Rebel XSi camera. Live View allows users to frame shots through the LCD screen rather than the viewfinder
  • Improved Autofocus and Framing Rate: The EOS Rebel XSi Digital SLR utilizes a precise nine-point Autofocus (AF) system featuring a newly developed AF sensor that improves the camera's subject detection capabilities compared to earlier models
  • EOS Integrated Cleaning System: The new Rebel XSi DSLR utilizes Canon's EOS Integrated Cleaning system, first introduced on the EOS Rebel XTi camera. The camera's Self-Cleaning Sensor Unit shakes dust particles off of the low-pass filter in front of the sensor
  • The second part of the cleaning system involves post processing with a compatible personal computer and the supplied Digital Photo Professional software
  • A departure from previous EOS Digital Rebel models, which accommodated CF type memory cards, the new EOS Rebel XSi camera utilizes SD and SDHC memory cards including those with capacities higher than 2GB, making it the perfect upgrade for users already equipped with SD cards
  • EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 Image Stabilizer Lens: First introduced in August of 2007, the Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS zoom lens is Canon's answer to consumer demand for a high-quality yet affordable optically image stabilized lens & is included as the standard lens in the Rebel XSi kit configuration

Super fantastic!

I love this camera!! I have small hands (5 1/2-6 womens ring size), and find I can hold the camera with ease and able to push all the buttons, bells and whistles. I would have given it 5 stars except for the lens that came with it. Don't get me wrong its a great lens, the IS is great, and it takes nice macro shots, but feel its a bit limited for my style. I would recommend the lens for point and shoot outings, and the occasional "hey thats cool" macro shot. If you are looking for more versatility in a lens go for the 50mm f/1.8, 50-250mm IS or the 70-300mm IS lenses by Canon (all are sold at Adorama) =) The booklet that came with the camera is easy to understand, and the software had no kinks during install. I was lucky enough to the combo deal with the extra battery, SD card and the bag. The bag is roomy, and sturdy and has enough room for camera and 2 maybe 3 reg lenses. Lots of pockets for your misc stuff, and I love the mesh water bottle holders on the sides for those long hot days. SD card was a name brand, formatted to camera just fine. The shots I did take with the lens kit came out beautifully, colors were bright (although a few had some "noise" in them, but that was my error) and images were sharp. What can I say if your looking to upgrade from a point and shot or wanting to get into photography but don't want to spend the 2-3 grand like the big boys, I highly recommend this camera!!!
