The market is full of point and shoots digital cameras. However, there is still a lot of room left for advanced digital camera, with excellent performances for either professional photographer or maybe demanding customers. Canon offers high end devices as a solution to the market demands. Therefore, in Canon’s portfolio the most powerful and complete solution is the XSx line.

The latest addition to this line is the entry level camera, Canon Rebel XS. The new XS also represents a shift in the Canon strategy. In the past, Canon always released better Rebel models, making the present ones the entry level models. However, Canon decided after the release of the high end model XSi, to launch an almost identical but less powerful (but more affordable) model, Rebel XS. In both hardware and design terms, the XS is a much more attractive model to the mass market than the exclusivist XSi.


The Rebel XS can easily be considered as an XSi replica in terms of design. You will probably not be able to tell them apart. The XS sports are excellent finish made out of black matt plastic (stainless steel chassis). Although this is not a high end material, it was strategically chosen in order to make the camera lighter and easy to use. You also get a silver and black style. Overall the XS leaves a solid feeling in matter of construction.

Unfortunately this impression disappears once you have felt the buttons or if you have used the four way control keys. At best you can say it doesn’t inspire confidence. Canon Rebel XS is actually a kit. Therefore, Canon also delivers a single lens kit, with EF S 18 to 55 mm 1:3.5 to 5.6 IS lens. Even if XS is identical in terms of design to XSi, it still weights less. The Rebel XS has a height of 9.75 cm (3.8 inches), wide of 12.61 cm (4.96 inches), deep of 6.19 cm (2.4 inches), the XS weights about 450 g (15.9 oz), making not the most portable camera around. Compared to the XSi, XS weights less than 1.6 ounces.

Although Canon included to XS a more rubbery feeling cover, the camera is still not that comfortable to hold. In terms of buttons and layout, you basically get the same layout from any other Canon digital camera.


The new Rebels XS copies the button layout of the old model. In the right o the LCD display, you can find the four way controller with the function button, menu button and other buttons in the same area. The Rebel XS also sports a few button above the display to the left (focus and exposure controls), an ISO key, and a multifunction control button. Most of the buttons have a different feeling, making the user experience more easy and intuitive, rather then difficult and Swiss precise. All the provided keys offer fast access to all major features or settings, making the entry menu unnecessary.

One of the most important features, which with XS take advantage in direct competition with other similar cameras is the excellent menu, “My Menu”. This menu is fully customizable; you can even build a shortcut list of the most used camera settings, making the access to sub menus instantaneous. However even such a precise menu, like “My Menu”, can be irritating at times (when you will get two column to navigate, you will have go through the first column in order to get to the second one, rather then just enabling left and right navigation).

The Rebel XS is shipped with a 2.5 inches TFT LCD display with an approximate 230.000 pixels. It is basically the same display from the XS’s sibling, XSi. This display delivers good color rendering and it is accurate. Also it sports a wide viewing angle, almost 160 degrees both horizontal and vertical and a seven level brightness.


The LCD display provides basic information like the battery status, exposure parameters, memory left for pictures or videos. If you are familiar with the old Rebel devices, then you will definitely recognize the LCD display with all the service lines (in the same place like the ones found on XS predecessors); therefore, nothing new in this department. For some customers this might seem a good feature, while for the rest of the potential buyers will be a deal breaker (after all you should see and feel changes from an old device to the new one).

As any other camera display, you can use the screen from the XS in the live screen mode. By doing so, you will understand better about the actual colors the picture will have (the LCD display will accurately show you a preview of the photo – the image you actual see will differ in term of colors and details than the image you will get on the photo). Screen brightness is adjustable because of the lights sensors situated above the display. Also the Rebel XS display will provide information regarding the ISO, focus indicator, flash mode, shutter information, and other image effects. Overall, the display along with the menu is solid features for an entry level digital camera.

One of the most important features for a camera in order to take excellent photos is the autofocus. The Rebel XP provides a manual focus (switch on lens) and auto focus. The XS is equipped with a seven point CMOS sensor with F5.6 cross type at center. The auto focus works on a range of -0.5 to 18 EV at 23 Celsius degrees with ISO 100.

The implemented auto focus brings several modes in order to develop the quality offered (AI Focus, AI Servo auto focus point selection, manual auto focus assist Flash strobe shooting modes, and one shot). Canon included in the new XS a 10.1 megapixel camera with a 22.2 x 14.8 mm CMOS sensor. The total pixels offered by this model are 10.5 megapixels, while the effective pixel numbers is 10.1 megapixels. Also, this camera features a RBG Color filter array and built in filter with self cleaning unit.


The XS has included two shooting modes: creative zone and basic zone. Every mode has its own settings you can change. The basic zone includes settings like flash suppressed, sports, macro, portrait, auto exposure, landscape, and night mode. You can observe that all the settings for the basic zone is offered for shooting the greatest pictures you can. The creative zone features settings like manual, program, aperture priority, auto depth of field, and shutter priority. Canon included in its device standard ISO 100 / 200 / 400 / 800 / 1600. The white balance feature has the following presets: auto, daylight, shade, cloudy, tungsten, fluorescent, flash, but also custom white balance bracketing.

The camera screen displays the following settings or information: shutter speed, aperture, sensitivity, exposure mode, meter / exposure compensation, white balance and fine tuning, custom function set, auto focus mode, drive mode, auto focus areas, bracketing, black and white mode, red eye reduction, image quality, and battery status. The image quality offered by Rebel XS is flawless. From the moment you push the trigger, through the full process you still have an excellent photo. You get three important image resolution from which to chose: small – 1936 x 1288 pixels, medium – 2816 x 1880 pixels, and large – 3888 x 2592 pixels. The output formată are: RAW (.CR2) + JPEG large or fine. Canon added to this great digital camera a 1080 mAh Lithium Ion battery. This battery should be enough for 600 photos. You can easily connect your XS to your computer by using the high speed USB 2.0 port.

You also get video out for PAL / NTSC. The Canon Rebel XS is compatible with SD and SDHC memory card. Like every new Canon camera model, the XS can use its USB port to connect directly to Canon SELPHY printers, Canon Bubble Jet printers with direct print function, and the Pict Bridge supporting Canon PIXMA. If you can get pass the build quality and the average kit Lens then you will discover a great camera with excellent auto focus, clear high ISO pictures, and a large variety of processing options.

Also the shipping box contains, beside the actual XS, the Lens kit, wide strap, USB interface cable, battery pack, video cable, battery charger, and instruction manuals. Overall, the Canon Rebel XS is a great investment. For only $500 you get a good entry level Rebel camera with the best quality photos in its range. is a gadgets review with pictures, graphics, photos, images, videos, something else blog with visitors’ comments.
