This easy to use camera is fast, non-intimidating and light weight which captures and produces excellent images. Its 10.1-megapixel CMOS sensor captures a photo suitable enough for a poster size and produces good quality prints. It is so fast that it can capture 3 frames per second for bursts of over 500 images and its DIGIC III image processor provides fast, accurate image processing.
It has EOS Integrated cleaning system and Canon-designed Self cleaning sensor unit, plus dust delete data detection is in the included software. It also has a large 2.5-inch LCD display; includes Canon’s EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 II zoom lens. Other features include USB 2.0 compatibility and the system requirement for PC connection are MS Windows 2000 SP4 or later, Apple Mac OS X 10.3 or later, MS Windows Vista, MS Windows XP SP2. The material of which the camera is made up of is plastic and stainless steel. The still image format is in the JPEG and RAW.
The Canon Rebel XS 10 gives a sharp and still shot even when there is not much light in the surrounding area. It is like a digital powerhouse and has this amazing auto lighting optimizer which automatically corrects the contrast and brightness of the snapshot. It shoots 3 frames per second (fps) in ideal situations, 2.3 fps in low light, and worst case is just over 1 fps. The macro of the camera also works very well.
The feature I like best in the Canon Rebel XS 10 is that the portrait images aren’t blurry which is the case with many cameras. The images are clean, excellent in quality and are nicely toned. Another thing I like about it is its buttons. The buttons are easy to press and have a soft touch. The camera is built in such a way that it has an easy grip for the users to handle. The rubber grip is firm and smooth enough to not irritate your hands.
Based on the price about ($500), this camera gives great features and you’ll be happy if you’re upgrading from a point and shoot for the first time. The DigicII sensor gives great quality of images and works great with the 18-55 mm lens.
