12.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor
The 12.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor gives you plenty of detail for poster-size prints
and extra flexibility when cropping. Sensitive in low light and virtually
noise-free, Canons CMOS sensors are also remarkably power-efficient.
3.5 fps shooting
The EOS Rebel XSi captures up to 3.5 frames per second for a continuous burst of
up to 53 large JPEG images (6 in RAW).
9-point wide-area AF
The 9 AF points are spread out across the frame to better accommodate off-centre
subjects. The central AF point is a high sensitivity cross type sensor for
quick, accurate focusing with f/2.8 and faster lenses.
EOS Integrated Cleaning System
Canons built-in dust prevention system uses three methods to keep images
blemish-free. (1) Specialized materials reduce dust generation within the
camera. (2) A Self-Cleaning Sensor Unit shakes dust from the sensor each time
the camera is turned on or off. (3) Stubborn dust spots are mapped for easy
removal in Digital Photo Professional.
3.0 LCD with Live View mode
The bright 3.0 LCD provides sharp definition for checking focus and
composition, with 10x magnification for finer details. When shooting from
awkward positions, Live View mode gives you the option of framing the image from
the LCD, and a choice of focusing modes.
DIGIC III processor
Renowned for its white balance accuracy, DIGIC III renders colors with
brilliant, true-to-life precision. Captured images are processed in 14-bit color
depth for finer tonal gradations. DIGIC III works efficiently to minimize power
consumption while maintaining ultra-fast response times.
Large, bright viewfinder
A large viewfinder gives a bright and clear view for easy composition of the
Total image control
