Canon new cameras are the best. If you do not got a Canon Rebel now your wait was a good thing. Canon new EOS Digital Rebel XTi is a great design for the successful EOS Rebel line.
The new new Canon Rebel is a thin, comfortable camera. It comes with a 10.1 MP 3-2 aspect ratio high sensitivity CMOS CCDsensor and a 2.5 inches LCD screen. Canon has kept compatibility with its other lenses so if you already have a few you are in great shape. You can use any of Canon lenses in the EF lineup, ultra-wide angle all the way to super telephoto lenses. You can get more photo shooting capacity with the battery grip providing carrying up to two extra batteries. The digital photos produced by the camera are the standard JPEG and RAW. With 10MP files can be quite high so a large capacity memory card is better. The camera uses the standard Compact Flash memory card format. The camera works with USB 2.0 for extremely fast delivery of photos to your PC. The Rebel XTi is an SLR camera with shutter speeds all the way from 1/4000 to 30 seconds. It weights 18 ounces and is 4.98 inches wide, 3.71 inches high and 2.56 inches deep.
I took the Canon Rebel XTi for a test drive. The camera grip has been improved a bit relative to older models. I like the picture style option allowing choosing between landscape and portrait film. As with other Canon cameras it focuses very fast and allows taking picture with almost no digital delay.
I tested the camera with a zoom lens with image stabilizer. I went to the beach to take some sunset pictures. The Canon performed fantastic it focused immediately and took crisp pictures. A few scenes were difficult on the Canon to focus on specially when I tried to take zoom photos of birds with the skies as the background. This is however expected as it is hard for any auto focus to handle those scenes. The Canon however makes manual focusing easy so I switched to manual to overcome it.
