DigIT reviews the
Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi / 400D DSLR
Awards member DigIT
has just published their review of the Canon
EOS Digital Rebel XTi / 400D digital
SLR. [Editor's note: review is in norwegian.]
The Canon 400D features 10.1MP resolution
on an APS-C size sensor, in-camera Dust
Cleaning System, and an internal buffer
that allows you to shoot up to 27 consecutive
Large/Fine (10.1 megapixel) JPEGs, 10 RAW
files, or 8 RAW + Large/Fine JPEGs at a
rate of up to 3fps. Here is Kai Thon's summary
of his review [translated into English]:
too often we see image quality being sacrificed
for higher image resolution, mainly in terms
of increased image noise.
This is not the case with the EOS 400D.
Despite its 10 MP resolution, it delivers
image quality on par with its far more expensive
sibling, the EOS 30D.
However, it's a shame that the performance
of the standard zoom lens EF-S 18-55 mm
f/3.5-5.6 II does not justify the performance
of the camera.
In comparison with its predecessor, the
EOS 350D, all details are either identical
or considerably better, at a lower price.
Its performance proved to be way beyond
expectations. With a SanDisk Extreme IV
memory card, we shot twice as many pictures
as specified by Canon, with a faster 3.2
fps speed. Amazing!
Add to this a high resolution 2.5"
LCD screen with eye control sensor, sensor
dust removal, picture styles, improved user
friendliness and lots of other goodies,
and you get a camera that will be placed
on top of many wishing lists for Christmas.
And it deserves it!
