Canon EOS Rebel XS Video Transcript
>> [ music ] ^m00:00:03 Hi I'm Lori Grunin, senior editor with CNET dot com and this is the Canon Rebel XS. We haven't reviewed this yet, it's the first we've seen it, Canon's sitting in the other room waiting for hit back, but I'd thought I'd bring you a preview of what you'd expect from Canon's new entry level model. It replaces the XTi which is still selling pretty well and although they haven't finalized the price yet as of this video, it should be priced about the same as the XTi is selling now; which puts it competitive with models like the Nikon G60 and the Sony Alpha dSLRH100. The specs are pretty similar to those as well, it's a 10 megapixel, it ships with the Canon 18 to 55 IS lens, and the body is identical to the Rebel XSi. In terms of features the XS is reduced to a 7 point AF system from the XSi's 9 point and actually the XTi also had a 9 point auto focus. Although the 7 point auto focus is a step down from the XTi, it does have several features which are a step up from that, that it takes from the XSi; wide view shooting for one, it's lighter, and it has a longer battery life because it uses the higher capacity battery that you'll find in the XSi. As a matter of fact, all of the accessories from that camera are compatible with this one. And although the body is identical to the Rebel XSi, it does have a smaller LCD that's 2 and a half inches versus 3 inches. Inside it has a DIGIC III processor so although it has the same sensor as the XTi, you pretty much expect to see different image quality out of it. Better or worse? You'll have to wait for our review to tell you. I'm Lori Grunin and this is the Canon Rebel XS. [ music ]
The Canon EOS Rebel T3 a perfectly fine entry-level camera, but there are better options for the money.
While the Canon EOS Rebel SL1 is a perfectly reasonable entry-level dSLR, you can get the same photo and video quality in a smaller body for the same money (or less) by opting for a mirrorless interchangeable-lens model.
The entry-level Canon Pixma MP160 is a decent all-in-one printer for the price, but don't be tempted by this entry-level machine. The Pixma MP180 costs a mere $10 more and provides the same print quality and many more features.
The Canon EOS Rebel XSi doesn't stand out for its feature set or design, but the digital SLR delivers on performance and photo quality.
The Canon EOS Rebel XTi looks as if it'll be as good or better than its predecessor--provided the company can keep the noise down on the crowded 10-megapixel sensor.
Canon's XH A1 is an excellent camcorder for entry-level professionals and independent filmmakers, with hard-to-beat prices for what it offers.
The Canon EOS Rebel T4i is slated to hit stores later in June in several configurations: $849 (body only), $949 (with 18-55mm lens), and $1,199 (with the new 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 IS STM lens).
Canon's newest top Rebel boasts a 12.2MP CMOS sensor and a live view shooting mode.
Canon's newest Rebel delivers video capture at the lowest dSLR price yet.
The Canon EOS Rebel T4i adds a fluidly operating touch screen to its repertoire.
Canon Rebel XS (with 18-55mm lens, Black) Review
The good: Excellent photo quality for its class; solid performance.
The bad: Maximum ISO of 1,600; no spot meter; annoying, in-viewfinder, focus-point display.
The bottom line: The Canon EOS Rebel XS is a good entry-level dSLR, but only its photo quality stands out among the competition.
