Canon announces US pricing for XS
Last month Canon announced a new entry-level DSLR, the EOS Digital Rebel XS, but pricing for it’s US launch wasn’t known at the time.
In preparation for it’s launch next month, Canon has announced that the kit version that comes with an 18 – 55mm, f/3.5 – 5.6 EF-S lens with image stabilization will go for $700.
Features of the XS will include:
- 10.1 megapixel sensor
- DIGIC III image processor
- 3fps shooting
- 2.5-inch LCD
- Self-cleaning sensor
- 7-point AF system with center cross-type sensors
Really a solid camera for someone contemplating making the leap from point-and-shoot cameras to a DSLR.
I personally prefer the XSi for about $200 more but you can’t really go wrong with either camera.
