Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT / 350D digital SLR


Mouseover image for back view

Category: Serious to Advanced Amateur

The Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT / 350D digital SLR is a high performance digital SLR with 8MP resolution on an APS-sized CMOS image sensor. It is slightly smaller and lighter than the EOS Digital Rebel that it is replacing, while adding higher resolution, faster opeartion and more creative control. It is compatible with all of Canon’s EF lenses including the EF-S lenses and still retains the sub-$1,000 price point.

A major improvement on the new Canon Digital Rebel XT is the larger internal buffer that allows the XT to shoot up to 14 consecutive Large/Fine (8.0 megapixel) JPEGs, 5 RAW files, or 4 RAW + Large/Fine JPEGs at a rate of up to 3fps.

Among the new features found on the Canon Digital Rebel XT are user selectable metering and AF modes (we can hear the audible sigh of relief among enthusiasts), flash exposure compensation control, improved E-TTL II evaluative flash metering and custom function control. The Canon Digital Rebel XT incorporates nine of the Custom Functions previously found on the Canon EOS 20D model.

The Canon Digital Rebel XT allows users to select locking or tacking AF modes independently, adding a new dimension of creative control.

The Canon Digital Rebel XT digital SLR accepts more than 50 Canon EF lenses and the EX-series Speedlites. Because the Digital Rebel XT is smaller with a smaller hand grip, those with large hands will find the addition of the optional dedicated battery grip make the Digital Rebel XT easier to hold.
