Canon EOS Rebel XSi 450D hands-on [UPDATED]
The PMA shows opens tomorrow, but the highlight for some has already come with the announcement of the new Canon EOS Rebel XSi 450D, replacing the EOS Rebel XTi 400D.
The folks at Gizmodo were able to lay hands on the XSi and found that it felt better in the hand than the XTi, with a more solid feel and better grip, and they loved the interface and LCD.
They weren’t able to spend too much time with the XSi, but going by what they’ve found so far and what they’ve seen in the spec sheet, they feel the XSi is “the new entry-level DSLR king.”
UPDATE: Engadget was also able to spend a little time the XSi and say “with this body and all the lenses Canon has, this is one entry level that most folks will never need to leave.” Check out their very short post here if you’re interested.
