Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi

This Digital Rebel has a high-res image sensor, anti-dust technology and a host of new features

The camera's built-in flash is a great tool for reducing and controlling contrast. When used in combination with flash-exposure compensation in increments of a 1/3 or 1/2 ƒ-stop, you can fine-tune the effect to add a bit of fill-light to the foreground in a landscape photograph.

The new folder-management system allows up to 9,999 images per automatically or manually created folder, which is something we especially like. Previously, images could be saved to multiple folders even if they were created during the same shoot, which was annoying. This feature makes things wonderfully straightforward and simple.

Tricks Of The Trade:
The expanded info screen with an RGB histogram and memory-card remaining capacity increases the amount of essential information accessible to you while shooting. This data helps you to achieve an accurate exposure as well as ensure that you don't run out of space for your images when you need it most.
