About Canon

Canon's large-area CMOS sensor captures images with exceptional clarity and tonal range, and offers the most pixels in its class. This APS-C size sensor (22.2 x 14.8mm) has the same 3:2 ratio as film cameras, enabling an effective angle of view that is 1.6x the normal EF Lens focal length. With an effective pixel resolution of 3,904 x 2,598, the EOS Digital Rebel XTi offers superb detail and clarity, even in large prints, and generates finished files that open at approximately 30MB in your image-editing software.

On Canon's CMOS sensor, each pixel is captured with fine detail to create images of tremendous depth and resolution, ensuring enough information for even poster-sized prints. With the DIGIC II Image Processor on board, photographers can expect natural color reproduction, precise white balance in any number of lighting situations and unparalleled clarity.

The EOS Digital Rebel XTi has a brilliant 2.5-inch LCD monitor with approximately 230,000 pixels. All shooting and review information is accessed on the rear LCD monitor, and the wide viewing angle of 160° and brighter, easier-to-read menus give the new Rebel XTi LCD monitor an obvious advantage. When composing images, the Digital Rebel XTi's external display turns off automatically to prevent the LCD monitor's brightness from disturbing the photographer's eye. With a startup time of 0.2 seconds, the EOS Digital Rebel XTi is ready to go the instant it's brought to the eye. And the Digital Rebel XTi's shutter can record images as fast as 1/4000 seconds and as long as 30 sec., plus bulb at up to 3 fps for 27 consecutive shots. It synchronizes with Canon Speedlites at 1/200 seconds.

The EOS Digital Rebel XTi has a high-precision 9-point AF system for speedy and accurate focusing in any situation. photographers can recreate characteristics of their favorite films. Color, saturation, sharpness and contrast settings create noticeable variation in the saved image. In addition to six preset Picture Styles (Standard, Portrait, Landscape, Neutral, Faithful and Monochrome), users can create 3 additional settings for their particular photographic style.

Printing and uploading to a computer is incredibly simple with the Digital RebelXTi's Print/Share button. The EOS Digital Rebel XTi not only sports a newly-refined body with better ergonomics and an improved grip, but it also has some of Canon's most advanced improvements in dust reduction. The Digital Rebel XTi's integrated hardware and software solutions make trouble with dust a thing of the past.

The EOS Digital Rebel XTi features the acclaimed E-TTL II flash metering system. You can use it's flush-mounted integral flash or or any of the flashes in the EX Speedlite line. The EOS Digital Rebel XTi is compatible with all Canon lenses in the EF lineup, ranging from ultra-wide angle to super telephoto lenses, & including Canon's EF-S series lenses manufactured specifically for Canon's APS-C sized digital sensor.

Quality digital camera

The lens front should have a bayonet mount on the front, so that filters, such as a polarizer, should be easily interchanged. Instead, it has exceedingly fine threads, which are all-to-easily cross-threaded. Adding filters is a very slow touchy task, because a filter has to be perfectly aligned to the front edge to engage the threads correctly. Cherry red colors are reproduced more orange-red.

The lens front should have a bayonet mount on the front, so that filters, such as a polarizer, should be easily interchanged. Instead, it has exceedingly fine threads, which are all-to-easily cross-threaded. Adding filters is a very slow touchy task, because a filter has to be perfectly aligned to the front edge to engage the threads correctly. Cherry red colors are reproduced more orange-red. Royal blue and primary blue are more toward cyan. Purples are either redder or bluer than they should be. All colors appear duller than they should be, especially when compared with prints from color negative film or with color slide film. On testing with a spectrograph, I see why. Peak blue occurs around 475nm and peak red sensitivity occurs at 610nm. Blue sensitivity should be broadened to include shorter wavelengths than it does and should peak closer to 450nm. Red sensitivity should peak around 625nm and be broader, too. The exposure range which produces good results is very narrow, similar to slide films. Its camera case is awkwardly designed, such that it has to be totally removed, including the bottom section, to swap out the memory chip or battery. Even removing the front part of the case for taking pictures isn't quick & easy. On the good side, I appreciate this camera's resolving power and the flexibility of control, even though the implementation of a few features is not as intuitive as I would like. The viewing screen is excellent at providing represenatation of how it will appear on the computer screen. The ability to use manual focus, when desired, and the ability to work with studio flash (with a special adapter)are the main reasons I bought this camera. It does both well. Where convenience, speed of getting results in digital form and overall quality are needed, this camera does well. For faithful color reproduction and tone scale, it hasn't quite replaced what silver halide color negative film can do.

No external flash PC terminal

Bought it because everyone said it had flash connector and it did have new features and large sensor. Took me a few calls to figure out it wouldn't use a regular flash slave because it flashes several times even with the red eye flash turned off, to cal it's lens distance. Have gone back to my D20.

"It was love at first light!"

By

from Catskill Mountains, New York  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

[...] I was able to begin taking pictures immediately with just a quick look at the users guide.Having other Canon cameras and an older Rebel, I found the controls extremely simple to use and second nature to an "old Canon user".I have not downloaded the photos yet,but I am certain there will be many keepers. There are many 'neat' features to explore as I take my new Rebel XTi with me all the time.

Best Deal -- Megapixels per Dollar

A Great Camera!!

By

from West Palm Beach, FL  -  Casual user

I am a casual user and upgraded from a recently purchased Canon XT (8MP) since I wanted the improved resolution of the new Canon XTi. However, as good as the Canon XT was, the Canon XTi is better! The extra 2MP is not the real reason to upgrade - the improvements are numerous, and significant. Much improved user interface, simpler operation, automatic sensor cleaning, just plain simpler to use with the same awesome Canon image quality. This is the finest DSLR you can buy for the money. Excellent value, excellent images, user interface that is simple, quality construction, adaptable to hundreds of lenses and accessories.
