Canon Rebel XS 10.1MP Digital SLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens (Black)

Rating: 5 out of 5
  • Currently 5.0/5.0

Digital cameras are one of those products on the market where price shouldn't be an object. Like a camcorder, MP3 player or smart phone, digital cameras can range widely in price. But, because of the competitive nature of the field, the price will almost always dictate the quality, and vice versa. If you find yourself with a quality digital camera - especially an SLR camera - you will pay for it. But, you will get in return a product that will last many years and one that will provide exactly the specifications that you have been looking for.

For $649.99, the Canon Rebel XS SLR camera is average priced for a device of its lengthy list of capabilities. It can be purchased in many places for as little as $475 dollars. Among the specifications available on the camera are an extremely high 10.1 megapixels, a 2.5 inch LCD display screen, an 18-55 millimeter lens, a fast and accurate image processor and a live view function that allows you to view pictures in real time.

The 10.7 megapixels offered by the Canon Rebel is almost double the amount of the 6 megapixels common on other digital cameras - the kinds often sold for around $250. The camera also has its own built in cleaning system, and features a self-cleaning sensor unit and Dust Delete Data Detection that is used to keep the inside of the system clean and functioning properly.

The camera has an auto light optimizer that is used to change the way that pictures are taken. Without personally adjusting the flash, you will be able to take pictures outside, in the dark, in side lighting, in back lighting or in normal lighting. The camera will then adjust your pictures and have them looking consistent. You can then add your own effects to the picture to change the look to various artsy implications.
