Digital Camera Lens

By Scott Paul

Canon new lenses are also exceptional. Canon's Digital Rebel was a market success, and the company's new Rebel XT is also hitting good reviews. The previous camera was 6.3 megapixels, the new one is 8.0 and it's a little smaller as well.

While digital SLR cameras are extremely popular among professional photographers, some consumers have shied away from them because they are larger than compact digital cameras and some models can be complicated to the uninitiated user.

Canon fixed everything that needed to be fixed. Except they really dropped the ball on the viewfinder. Canon provides a dust compensation feature in the XTi's free software. You shoot a blank image as a reference. Canon touts its smaller, lighter body as well; it's nearly as small as you can get in a digital SLR.

But while that might appeal to the small handed and nimble, the XT's compressed, lightweight, and slightly chintzy-feeling frame will be a hindrance to others who prefer a solid grip and a balanced camera body--particularly if they're using a lens any heavier than the mediocre 18mm-to-55mm f/3.5-to-f/5.6 unit included in the kit.

Digital cameras must have at least a 4x ( VR ) zoom to be considered a candidate for the best camera. A powerful, clear, auto-focus zoom will help make your pictures look as if they were taken by a cameraman every time. Digital SLR cameras have a live meter reading that can be accessed by looking through the viewfinder at the meter bar on the bottom. Adjust the aperture and shutter speed until the meter bars are at "0.".

Canon is updating their line-up too fast, and this is bad for housing companies. Canon quality and reliability. Excellent value for money, particularly if you can still find a Rebel XT marked down to a close-out price, now that the XSi has come along to replace it. Canon lens 9475A002 can only be mounted on the Digital Rebel and EOS 20D with shorter back focus than ordinary EF lenses.
