This camera may not be the newest model, but its resolution and operating features are entirely adequate for my needs. I have a 50mm prime, a short and a long zoom and we have found the picture quality to be excellent, even on a 24" monitor. The camera is much lighter than our older-model Canon DSLR and we especially happy with the exposure metering, even in tough situations like backlighting and lower light situations. Good battery life and general ease of use are additional pluses. I would recommend this model to any casual photographer, which is what we are. I am sure a more advanced user could also make wonderful photos with the more advanced features this camera offers.
I've been looking for a good DSLR camera for a while, now, and as a student with not a lot of disposable income, it's a difficult market to scour. I got this camera for a couple hundred dollars below retail, and I'm excited to keep exploring its functions and getting into more serious photography. The camera kit comes standard with the EFS 18-55mm IS lens, which includes an image stabilization system as part of the lens. This is a good standard-zoom lens that gives you some play room to set up your shots, but you'll definitely want to let that be just the start of your lens collection. With the EOS system, itself, finding other lenses is just a matter of having the extra cash to invest.
One of the biggest debates out there right now in cameras is the big question: Canon or Nikon? Before I bought this camera, I went out and did a LOT of research trying to figure out what brand I wanted to invest in and what I should be looking for in the brand. All of the reviewers and photographers I've read either swear by Canon or by Nikon, but what most of them have also said is that, between Canon and Nikon, it comes down to a matter of what feels best to you - they're about the same quality, when you boil them down to their basics. What made the difference to me was, having had no experience with DSLR systems, the ease of use that Canon gives you in their systems. Nikon's screen display was absolutely confusing to me - I saw a lot of numbers and symbols and things that, had I had the user's manual, I would have been better able to understand. Canon, on the other hand, had a screen that I was able to figure out after the first 10 seconds of turning the camera on. The display uses LARGE numbers and a simple layout that was much less intimidating than the Nikon.
The only thing I'd like to see better in this Camera is the shutter sound - if I'm shooting wildlife, I think I'm only going to get off one good shot before spooking any wild animals I'm trying to catch. I haven't tried this yet, but it's the feeling I'm getting. It's a LOUD shutter.
Definitely look for a good deal on this camera - it's worth the investment!
I have wanted to purchase a DSLR camera for a while and did quite a bit of research to determine which model would be right for me. I wanted to start out with one of the lower priced models. I decided to go with a Canon after reading many places that they produce the best picture quality, which is ultimately what picture taking is all about. I spent a lot of time comparing the XSi and the XS and ultimately chose the XSi because of the 2 additional auto focus points and the faster continuous shooting speed, although I'm not sure in the long run if it will make a difference or not. I have taken over 1300 pictures in the 3 weeks that I've had the camera and have been pleased with its performance.
The Cannon EOS Rebel XSI IS a upgrade from my Rebel G SLR camera and Rebel EOS camera I still own. I have had good luck with Cannon Camera's that I have owned from early 1980's.My first cannon was a second hand one that got stolen from my friends truck. I bought one to replace that one and that was damage from hurricane Andrew back in August of 1992. I bought the Rebel G and have use it and have not had any complaints. Then I got a Rebel Eos from a pawn shop that was a good buy and looked good also worked great. The new digital camera now gives you that picture instantly where you use to have to buy rolls of film, then load take picture s then take roll of film to have developed. Pro's,The price was right for me. The picture quality is great with the 12.1 megapixel and all the added features makes it a great camera. Having a rechargeable battery is great also which lasts a good amount of picture taking even using flash. Software for computer is easy to use. The lens kit is great , the lens works great with the imagine stabilization. The only con is getting use to not putting hands or fingers on led screen, other then that I am real happy and satisfied with my digital camera that I have purchased. I would recommend the camera to any one who would want to buy a new camera.
If you looking for a Digital SLR camera that is a step up for an entry level D-SLR then this might be the camera to look at.
The LCD screen is big with easy to read icons and information. It is also great to use with the "Live Preview" as you would a smaller Digital camera.
The weight of the XSi is one of the lightest in its class.
With the XSi using SD cards, there is no need to purchase some other type of memory that might not be used in anything else.
The speed of the continuous shoot is going to be more than sufficient for most people. The Image Stabilization adds to the ease of shooting by making your shoots more stable.
The flexibility of the XSi will meet the needs of most camera enthusiast and the simplicity of the point and shoot will allow even the novice to enjoy the quality of this camera.
If you are currently using a D-SLR and want to step up without spending a ton of money then the XSi is a very good camera for the money. If you want to be a little more flexible with your photography, the XSi will allow you to be creative.
I am thoroughly enjoying my Canon EOS Rebel XSi!
October 2010 Update, We got back from AZ and with the use of Custom setting was able to capture the true "Redness" of the Grand Canyon and the Rocks in AZ. If you want true to like colors, this is the camera for you.
