Rebel Xsi – Great Step Up From S3-Is

The Rebel XSi is a great step from the high end point and shoot. The learning curve was short when going from the S3 "YES" to the Rebel XSi. Some functions are actually easier to use in the Rebel XSi in the S3.

The camera size and weight is reasonable, I have the Rebel XSi with Sigma 18-200mm attached zoom in a bag attached M-Rock Glacier on the handlebars of my bike. Some of my photos can be found on Flickr, where I go by the name "Versageek"

A warning to those moving to the Fair "point and shoot" a DSLR (applies to most Digital Slr is not just this one): Although the 18-55mm lens is ideal for macro shots, when used for 10-12x zoom in a point and shoot, you have to buy other lenses cost between $ 500 – $ 1000 +. You'll also want a battery extra (~ $ 50), a 58mm UV haze filter to protect your lens ($ ~ 40 +), a sturdy Camera Bag (~ $ 80 +) And a good tripod (~ $ 120 +).

Rebel XSi – Update to XSi or 40D? I went to Rebel XSi

I've been a photographer time. Back in the 80s I got into cameras 35mm with a Canon AE1 and A1. Then he bought a rebel 35 mm and used for many years (still does). A couple of years I bought a Rebel XT Digital Camera, to be updated soon an XTi. Both the camera were impressive and I never had a single problem with any of them. Like most updates are however, each new model provided new useful things that made the new camera-much better than the last.

I'm not going to write all "of the camera does this and that" type things that everyone else has already written. You can go to the Canon website for all specifications. But I will say that I have bought many things over Amazon the years and never had a single problem. I decided to go to my local camera store for this purchase however, only because I wanted to handle the camera and play with it a while before making a decision.

I was torn between upgrading to the Rebel XSi or 450D. He had heard many rumors that the 40d would soon be replaced by a new, more advanced model. As I write this that has not happen yet. After playing both, and playing with them for several hours in my local store (I think leading seller of nuts!) I have to say:

There is no doubt that the 450D is a larger camera that appear more resistant. Without But it is too big for me. It is much heavier, but the grip and the way they are larger. The processer and guts are mostly the same in both cameras and some of the features of the Rebel XSi is actually more advanced (as it is a newer model.) The viewfinder of the Rebel XSi was clearer and sharper in the Rebel XSi and I liked the overall feeling better (may have something to do with being familiar with the XTi). The overall sound of the camera operation sounds great. Very professional.

The 40d really sounded too robotic for me when the shutter is used or the flash fired. The Live View function on the Rebel XSi actually has an additional option the 40d not, which is great for me since I really like macro photography. More importantly, the camera is easy to use and very easy to use. The manual is with quite detailed, but still recommend buying a book on good aftermarket Rebel XSi to really get to know. I really could not see spending $ 400 more for the 40d. I prefer to put it into a nice goal.

Finally, I decided to spend less money and get a great camera that will keep me happy A couple of years at which point I'm sure the latest and greatest next to the camera already on sale and I'll be ready for a new one! 🙂

If you are in the market for a camera that will do everything you want it to do, get the Rebel XSi. Whether an armature, pro or just a family member in search to take great photos of their children and events, this camera fits your needs. With the right lens of the camera takes quality photographs from magazines. If you can not afford that, get the Rebel XSi, also takes great photos. And if you have a lot of money to spend and want just one more camera, the 40D is not ago.
