The Canon Rebel XT Silver Digital Camera was a huge leap in consumer digital photography. For the first time, regular folks could own a digital SLR for less than four figures. The Rebel launched the consumer D-SLR revolution which now has many other camera manufacturers in the mix. This representative of the distinguished Canon line is equipped with a wide range of features and accessories to let you hold onto those most precious moments, most artistic landscapes, or most special portraits.

Equipped with an 8.0 MP CCD sensor, this camera allows you to capture images with utmost sharpness and astounding colors. The DIGIC II Image Processor really aids auto-focusing, accurate white balance and processing time and consumes much less energy than previous versions. This is an ultra-fast camera with an impressive shutter speed that may reach down to 1/4000 second, enabling you to take that flawless speed shot. The 7-point AF system ensures that the images are precise and accurate even while focusing on moving subjects!

The camera is bundled with a 18-55 mm f3.5-5.6 lens, but gives you the wide variety of EF lens compatible with the camera to choose from. Additionally, PictBridge technology allows you to directly print your photographs via a compatible printer. And, speaking of your computer, the Digital Solution Disk includes software for browsing, sorting and find your photos, to manage the years of pictures you’ll be taking with this spectacular camera.
