Hands On: Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D
By Jason Heller, January 31, 2008 @ 02:00 AM (EST)

by Jack Howard

Canon's just-announced 12.2-megapixel EOS Rebel XSi is a digital Rebel through and through -- lightweight, compact, and packed with an impressive feature set. It borrows and adapts a number of high-end EOS SLR functions and adds a few tricks of its own:

• There's a 3-inch 230K dot LCD like the 1Ds Mark III
Canon EOS 450D Rebel XSi

• It's the first Rebel with a Digic III processor.

• There's 14-bit A/D conversion.

• Highlight Tone Priority settings come to the Rebel line.

• It's got a 4% spot meter (hooray!)

• On-the-fly Lighting Optimization Technology can tweak photos in-camera to help challenging lighting situations.

• The burst rate jumps to 3.5 fps for 6 RAW or 45 JPEGS.

• It's the first EOS to take only SD cards -- no CF cards here!

• Like the EOS 1D Mark III, EOS 40D, and 1Ds Mark III, it has Live View Mode -- but this is the best yet

• Of course it's got a self-cleaning sensor.
