Budget Holiday Camera Number Two:
Canon EOS Rebel XSi / 450D Digital SLR Camera

Canon EOS Rebel XSi / 450D

Price: $450-600 new and used

The fourth “entry level” Rebel digital SLR from Canon, the EOS Rebel XSi / 450D has almost everything more expensive DSLRs have, but in a smaller body and with a much smaller price tag. The Rebel XSi was replaced this spring with the Rebel T1i and you can buy them used for under $500 now. The XSi / 450D is almost two years old but the 12-megapixel CMOS sensor and full set of controls offer excellent image quality and performance. Anyone shopping for their first digital SLR or upgrading from an earlier DSLR will be very happy with the XSi. For what it’s worth, most of the product photography you see in the pro reviews was shot with a Canon EOS Rebel XSi.
