The canon rebel xsi review reveals a hot new camera
According to the canon rebel xsi review, the EOS Rebel XSi is one of the better choices in the line-up. The rebel XS is a basic version of the SXi, or EOS-450D. It replaces the Rebel XTi and offers an excellent set of features. Two kits are available that feature this camera. The first kit is the camera only, which retails at about $799. The second kit contains the camera and an F3.5-5.6, 18 – 55 mm IS lens. Both sets also include the camera, a lithium-ion battery, charger, a shoulder strap, a body cap, a USB cable, a video cable, software, a user manual and a lens kit.
The lens kit contains Canon’s new 18-55mm stabilized lens, the best yet. This lens features image stabilization, reduced purple fringing and improved sharpness. This is a new and improved lens and the best in the range as yet. As part of the changes, the camera now features secure digital flash memory, switching from CompactFlash. The kit does not include a memory card, but you can use a SDHC or SD card. It is best to start with a 2GB card and it is worth getting a high speed card.
With the new LP-E5 battery, you can expect improved battery life from the XTi to the XSi. The battery is a bit pricey and you can’t use a cheaper battery when the proprietary battery runs out. However, the battery grip has an adaptor, allowing you to use 6 AA batteries to supply power. The battery can be charged in the charger that is included in the package. It takes about 2 hours for the proprietory battery to be fully charged. The best feature of the charger is that it can be plugged directly into a wall socket and there is no need for additional adaptors.
The digital slr camera has a larger screen than its predecessor, although some of the buttons have been tweaked too. The memory card slot is a lot smaller since it requires only enough space for the card. The software that comes standard with the package is user friendly and offers several great photo editing facilities, according to the canon rebel xsi review.
