Review: Canon Rebel Xsi


Last year's Rebel XTi was a massive sales success, but not exactly a technological leap forward for DSLRs. Most critiques of that camera (including ours)...

Switch to SDHC memory. Relatively low noise at high ISO settings. New battery with 50% more endurance

ISO tops out at 1600. Plastic body seems too plasticy. ISO in only full stop increments. Lacks the useful HELP mode of its major competitors. A tad bit pricey

Poor white-balance under artificial lighting, Occasional over-exposure problems, Very slow autofocus in live-view, Above average number of focus misses, Small hand-grip, LCD flush with side, Strange controls and interface in live-view
