Canon EOS 450D (EOS Digital Rebel XSi / EOS Kiss X2)

 

Four and a half years have passed since the first affordable digital SLR from Canon; the EOS 300D (Digital Rebel). In that time we have witnessed two further iterations (the EOS 350D and EOS 400D) leading up to today's fourth generation EOS 450D, with...

Superb resolution, good per-pixel sharpness (especially in raw files); Good tonal response and dynamic range; Trademark Canon CMOS noise free images, remain detailed even at high sensitivities; Optional high ISO NR removes all chroma noise; Viewfinder...

Average automatic white balance performance, still very poor under incandescent light; Limited exposure compensation range (+/- 2.0 EV); Contrast detect AF so slow it's useless for most types of photography; Metering has tendency to overexpose in very...

The EOS 450D represents Canon's response to the increasingly crowded and competitive nature of the entry-level DSLR market.

Magnificent resolution and image quality. Larger LCD than its predecessor. Live View. Kit lens now has image stabilization.

ISO settings go up to only 1600. The XSi's RAW format is not compatible with some image-editing software.

Canon EOS Rebel XSi review

 

After last year's disappointing Rebel XTi --a solid camera--but one that didn't improve significantly over its predecessor, the Canon EOS Rebel XSi comes as a welcome change, and a model worthy of upgrading from your old Rebel XT . It may have a...

Excellent photo quality for its class; better-than-average speed.

Maximum ISO 1600; huge spot-for-spot metering.

It doesn't stand out for its feature set or design, but the Canon EOS Rebel XSi delivers on performance and photo quality.

Canon EOS 450D review

 

The Canon EOS 450D is Canon's fourth entry-level model, launched right after Canon set the world on fire with the EOS 300D that was responsible for a price breakthrough. And although we talk about a period of five years, which may be considered as...

Canon EOS 450D Review

 

The Canon EOS 450D (also known as the Digital Rebel XSi) is the successor to the popular EOS 400D DSLR camera, and it offers a number of significant improvements that Canon hope will fight off the ever-increasing competition. The inevitable resolution...
