Little known facts
The Canon Digital Rebel XTi or Canon EOS 400D was released on August 24, 2006.
In Japan, this awesome camera is called, “Canon EOS Kiss Digital X”.
The Canon EOS 400D is the successor of the EOS 350D series. This one has a 10.1 megapixel CMOS sensor, a larger shooting buffer, an integrated system to clean vibration, a better focising system, a better grip, and a bigger LCD monitor (230,000 pixels worth).
Like in the 350D series, the Rebel uses the same DIGIC II image processor.
Some people have found that the Rebel is more likely to underexpose; whereas, the 350 would overexpose.

Pros and cons
I really, really like the self-cleaning sensors. It’ll take a smudge in the image and wipe it clean.
Some of the other goodies that come in this camera are also pretty cool.
I like the moving image capture in this camera more than any other I’ve seen.
Now, let’s talking about the nasty cons. Luckily enough, there’s only one. The price. I can’t believe we have to pay so much for something everyone should be able to own.
I think this is the best digital camera I’ve ever seen. It reminds me of the original Canon greats; you know, those old film cameras that weigh a ton but produce some truly great images. This is really light by comparison, really much more convenient, and the images are somewhat clearer than anything Canon has put out before.
