Great camera with an abundance of options to use.

By 

from Elizabeth, PA

Comments about Canon - EOS 400D / EOS Rebel XTi with 17-85mm and 70-300mm lenses Digital Camera:

I love my Canon Rebel. It takes great pictures and and has a ton of options that come along with the camera. There are a wide range of settings and its very user friendly.

Image Quality
The photos are great. You do have to adjust the settings prior to using the camera but once you do the picture quality is amazing. Just take the time to program the correct setting and taking great pictures will come in no time.

Performance
The overall performance is above average. I have had a few pictures turn out blurry but once I took some time and adjusted the settings I didn't have any more problems with it.

Ease of Use
The Canon Rebel is super easy to use. It comes with a easy to read instruction manual and its very easy to operate.

Durability
The camera is very durable. Its well built and sturdy.

Battery Life
The battery life lasts much longer than other cameras I have owed. I went on vacation for a week and took over 500 pictures and didn't have to charge the battery.

Portability
The portability is okay. The additional lens that you can purchase are a bit bulky. However, they do have several cases you can purchase to carry everything together.

Recommend! Good DSLR

By 

from Blaine, WA

Comments about Canon - EOS 400D / EOS Rebel XTi with 17-85mm and 70-300mm lenses Digital Camera:

I have been using this camera for years now and I still love it. It gives good quality of picture and color. The color of this camera is softer than other brand, giving the picture a more natural look. Canon camera are for portrait rather than landscape, hence softer color makes people look more natural. Whereas the Nikon are for landscaping, sharper color gives a more dramatic look. I have done my research before buying so I know I like the more natural look, which is not everyone's cup of tea.

The automatic function is average, since the color is usually off - either too yellowish or too cold. So I usually use Av or Tv. Manual setting will take longer to setup, so if I walk by a nice scene and want to snap a picture, Av or Tv is your best option. Landscape setting is best for landscaping scene, it does the job excellent. Portrait gives a softer look, which makes people's hair more soft and blended. All functions are excellent except Auto.

will always buy Canon

By 

from Glasford, IL

Comments about Canon - EOS 400D / EOS Rebel XTi with 17-85mm and 70-300mm lenses Digital Camera:

I have been a Canon believer for years and years. I believe the quality and ease of use is better than other brands. I used a Canon professional model, but sold it because I was laid off. Later I purchased the Canon Rebel xti and have been very happy with it. The only thing that bothers me is that the body has been shortened in the past few years. I find it hard to hold on to - it feels like they just cut one side off. Other than that, I don't have any problems with it. I would recommend an off-camera flash because I don't feel the on-camera flash gives a pleasing photograph. One feature I have always preferred Canons for is their quietness as opposed to other cameras. I used a borrowed Nikon to do wedding pictures once and was embarrassed at how loud the camera was during the ceremony. I won't make that mistake again. I recommend Canon to any of my friends who are considering buying a new camera.

Awesome Camera

By 

from Odessa, FL

Comments about Canon - EOS 400D / EOS Rebel XTi with 17-85mm and 70-300mm lenses Digital Camera:

My husband bought me this for Christmas after my first daughter was born. I craved professional photographs but being a SAHM meant that it just wasn't in our budget. I don't mean those department store photos, but a real photographer in a real setting, or even an occasional studio setting. I knew that if I got the camera I'd have to learn about taking pictures, not just how to look through the view finder and push a button. I took the time to learn the ins and outs of photography, and with some trial and error I started getting some great photos with the manual setting. Some times I'd only get 10 photos out of 100 that were usable, but it allowed me to learn the camera, and it certainly has paid off. My friends and family ask me to take all their pictures now, and they always love them. 

There are other settings other than manual that make the camera a cinch for beginners, or those who want a crisp picture without learning the other stuff. I do believe that if you buy a DSLR you should at least try to learn the manual features since you're really wasting the cameras capabilities. I have been known to use the full auto settings in certain circumstances, and even those turn out delightful.

I will say that the flash is a waste. If you are going to use the flash it's important to diffuse it, or buy a different one instead. I can't afford it yet, but that is my plan!!

I love this Canon camera!

By 

from Beltsville, MD

Comments about Canon - EOS 400D / EOS Rebel XTi with 17-85mm and 70-300mm lenses Digital Camera:

This camera is awesome.  It shoots with clarity, precision, detail.  It has a lot of fun settings and options.  It has a great amount of megapixels.  Reviewing your shots is simple and I love that it allows you to see what you are shooting on the screen.  It is fairly lightweight and easy to hold on to.  It makes taking pictures so fun and interactive.  I can approach something really simple in a lot of different ways and come back with a ton of creative shots with perfect clarity.  I love this Canon -EOS 400D/EOS Rebel XTi.  It is a little pricey, but so are all cameras of this quality and type. It is well worth the money if you want a camera to use creatively.  If you want a simple point and shoot camera to take family photos, I would suggest going for something a little less pricey.  This is a camera that you can add gadgets too, like more lenses and filters.  It is a great learning tool if you want to learn more about photography. Also, a great battery life!

The Canon Rebel XTi is THE best starter dSLR camera!

By 

from League City, TX

Comments about Canon - EOS 400D / EOS Rebel XTi with 17-85mm and 70-300mm lenses Digital Camera:

I purchased this camera second hand from eBay about two years ago, and have been enjoying it ever since! Sure, it may not be the current top of the line best digital SLR, but it is certainly a GREAT camera for your buck!

Some people think that you need to have the most up to date, top of the line camera to take great pictures! Too bad they don't know what they are missing! I spent less on this camera and used the rest of the money to buy an upgraded lens (A high quality Sigma with the HSM auto focus). 

Overall the camera functions perfectly! Even the focus on the lens which came with the camera works great, and the multiple adjustment settings on the camera itself (multiple auto settings to full manual mode) are fantastic. It will capture images in several different modes, including jpeg and RAW. 

The body accepts many of the older Canon style lenses in addition to hundreds of modern ones. Another nice aspect is the built in flash for those times when you leave your external flash at home!

I would certainly recommend this camera to anyone! Oh, and be sure to buy an extra battery! The battery life really is pretty decent for its class, but having a backup is a smart idea!

Excellent starter DSL-R Camera

By 

from Phillips, WI

Comments about Canon - EOS 400D / EOS Rebel XTi with 17-85mm and 70-300mm lenses Digital Camera:

This is an excellent camera for those who want to use their own lenses and adjust settings that are usually controlled by the computer in lower end cameras.  This is a great entry level DSLR and allows users to specialize in different types of lenses to fit their photography preferences.  Would highly recommend.

Great Camera

By 

from Calera, AL

Comments about Canon - EOS 400D / EOS Rebel XTi with 17-85mm and 70-300mm lenses Digital Camera:

I love the **Canon - EOS 400D / EOS Rebel XTi with 17-85mm and 70-300mm lenses Digital Camera**! I have had it for awhile, and I am planning on keeping it. I love the functions on this camera. Even a technology advanced person will be able to turn out great pictures with the Canon Rebel XTI. You can set it on auto mode, where the camera can set the settings for you, or you can select another option such as portrait, aperture, sport, etc which will allow you to change the ISO and other settings. The lenses are easy to change out and you can choose to do autofocus or turn it off and do manual focus. The menu is easy to navigate. I think that the battery lasts a long time, and if it dies, you can get enough charge very quickly to get started picture taking again. I wish that the XTI took SD cards, like the newer model Canons now do, because it is hard to find a card reader if yours decides it doesn't want to work anymore and the CF cards are expensive. Another negative is you cannot view on the screen, which isn't a big deal for me, unless I hand my camera to someone else to point and shoot. They are used to viewing the shot on the back of the camera instead of looking through the lense.
