Canon EOS 450D / Digital Rebel XSi

Canon EOS 450D / XSi video tour


We’re pleased to present a short video tour of the Canon EOS 450D / XSi. This demonstrates the 450D / XSi’s design, controls, live view and PC remote control systems.

There’s no need to download any new software – just press the play button in the middle of the screen below and wait for the video to start; you may need to press the button twice. The quality and any delay before playing may vary depending on your internet connection.

If the video is unavailable, please try again later. This is due to maintenance at YouTube.

Good points

Good handling and image quality.
Decent viewfinder and accurate Live View.
Kit includes stabilised lens.
PC remote control software supplied.

Bad points
Live View not as fuss-free as Sony A350.
Screen fixed in position, unlike A350.
Some may find it too small and light.
Tempting to upgrade further to EOS 40D.


(compared to 2008 budget DSLRs)
