The Canon Rebel XSI 12.2 is also known as the EOS 450D and it is the latest consumer DSLR. This new model boasts new features such as a live view and the hyped 12.2 mega pixel CMOS sensor. This is actually a replacement of the old EOS 40D and it contains more customized functions and advanced controls. This is suitable for serious photographers who want to have a fairly mature live view implementation which is certainly much better than the point-and-shoot approach.
Let us first discuss the physical form of this camera. You may be surprised that the design of this model is very simple and minimalist. It is a simple box set with an elegant black finish. This may also be uncomfortable to your grip but this is really not a problem once you are already familiar with it.
One of the best things about this Canon Rebel XSI 12.2 is that it has a 12.2 mega pixel resolution. Actually, this is now the highest resolution in this line. It also has a nine-point auto focus system as well as a 3-inch LCD. The size of the LCD is definitely something that this camera can boast of and it is even much more improved by the live view system. This live view system also stepped up as it includes a contrast-detection AF mode feature.
This model has a good color reproduction feature. Brightness can also be adjusted through seven distinct levels. This can be very helpful especially if you are shooting outdoors. You can also have a very wide range of view as it can capture a wide 160 degree angel.
As mentioned, this model has a nine-point auto focus system which it adopted from the old model. There is only a slight revision so you can expect a fast, reliable, and generally problem-free handling of low light or slower lenses. However, this does not include a cross-type sensor throughout the nine points. It only uses a single sensor except at the center.
Nevertheless, this auto-focus can allow you to use a whole range of options. For instance, you can use a slower contrast-detection focusing system which can be used on preview. This is also found on various compact cameras and it can be used without any interruption. The only problem is that it can take about 3 seconds to lock.
The image quality of this model is also very impressive. It has an excellent color reproduction which is very important for professional photography. This model also includes a general dynamic range function. It also has a d-range adjustment option that can target highlights.
In general, this Canon Rebel XSI 12.2 has good auto focus system, useful customizing features, and good image quality. For pro-amateur photographers, this is certainly a good consumer-based DSLR offering
