The EOS Digital Rebel XT features Canon's 8.0 Megapixel CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) sensor, which captures images of exceptional clarity & tonal range & 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, creating an effective angle of view that is 1.6x the normal EF Lens focal length.
Featuring an on-chip Noise Reduction Circuit with an expanded ISO range, the Digital Rebel XT's sensor offers professional sophistication in a consumer package.
Digic II Image Processor: The EOS Digital Rebel XT's sensor is driven by the DIGIC II Image Processor, which has been enhanced across the board with improvements in speed and image quality.
Information captured by the sensor is processed & assembled into images of exceptional clarity & resolution. Consuming very little energy, DIGIC II works with the sensor to ensure natural colors, accurate white balance & speedy write times, letting you focus on taking pictures.
Smallest & lightest EOS Digital SLR to date (as of February 2005) Much smaller than its predecessor, the Digital Rebel XT measures 4.98" across, 3.71" tall & only 2.63" deep, so it fits perfectly in your hand. Plus the Digital Rebel XT weights less than two pounds, too!
Fast 3 frames-per-second shooting with a 14 frame burst & 0.2 second startup time The EOS Digital Rebel XT was designed from the ground up to be faster & more intuitive than the Digital Rebel. From the ultra-fast 0.2sec. startup time, shutter release lag of 100msec. & viewfinder blackout time of 175 msec., the Digital Rebel XT will never keep you waiting. A new high speed shutter shoots atspeeds of up to 1/4000 sec. for up to 14 shots & synchronizes with your flash at 1/200 sec.
High-speed, Wide-area 7-point AF with superimposed focusing points The EOS Digital Rebel XT has a newly developed high-precision 7-point AF system for speedy & accurate focusing in any situation.
You can easily choose your own point of focus or direct the camera to choose it automatically.
You can even use predictive AF to ensure that moving subjects stay focused while you compose your shot. With a built-in dioptric adjustment mechanism & a new precision matte screen, achieving sharp focus is fast & easy with the Digital Rebel XT, no matter where or when you're taking pictures.
User-selectable metering patterns, AF modes, custom functions & flash exposure compensation The Digital Rebel XT offers some of the easiest operation available in a digital camera today.
But when you're ready, it offers a number of advanced setting options previously found only on higher-end models. Metering Patterns
With the Digital Rebel XT, you have a choice of whether to use 35-zone AF point evaluative metering, partial metering at the center of the image or centerweighted averaged metering, similar to a meter in a traditional 35mm camera.
