The Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS is a economized yet feature rich Digital Camera* perfect for aspiring photographers on a budget who still want excellent results and good expansion options. The Rebel XS was introduced in mid 2008 just a few months after it's sibling the slightly more expensive Rebel XSi. The Rebel XS offers most of the same features and functionality as the XSi but uses a smaller 2.5" LCD screen, a slightly lower resolution 10 megapixel sensor, fewer autofocus sensor points, and a less sensitive center focus point; the Rebel XS also forgoes the 4% spot meter, uses a textured plastic grip surface instead of an elastomer covered surface, and omits IR remote control connectivity in favor of a corder remote socket.
With the most important features and great pricing, EOS Digital Rebel XS is a tremendous value in a camera that opens up the world of high quality photography to more people; it's perfect for photography students and enthusiasts as well as families.
