Ideal for a wide range of photographers from first-time digital SLR users to veteran photo
enthusiasts, the new Canon EOS Rebel XS camera is designed to embody what you have come
to expect from the EOS Rebel series -- a fast, non-intimidating, lightweight, easy-to-use camera
that produces excellent images and starts emerging photographers off on the right foot.
Immediately, photographers will take notice of the camera's Optical Image Stabilized kit lens for
crisp focus, compensating for camera shake from unsteady hands or a moving vehicle. The new
Rebel model also incorporates Canon's DIGIC III image processor, 10.1 megapixel CMOS
sensor, Live View, Auto Lighting Optimizer, 7-point wide-area autofocus (AF) sensor and 3.0
frames per second continuous JPEG burst rate where the number of consecutive shots in a burst
is only limited by the capacity of the flash memory card in the camera.

Canon EOS Rebel XS Highlights
10.1-megapixel CMOS sensor
10.1-megapixel CMOS sensor Canons CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) sensor captures images with exceptional clarity and tonal range, and offers the most pixels in its
class. It offers many of the same new technologies first seen in Canons professional EOS-1D Mark III to maximize each pixel's light gathering efficiency. Its an APS-C size sensor (22.2 x
14.8mm), and there's an effective 1.6x increase in the lenss marked focal length when attached. Canons DIGIC III Image Processor dramatically enhances image quality and speeds up all camera operations for intuitive operation. It works in concert with the EOS Rebel XSs sensor to achieve unprecedented levels of performance in all lighting situations.
DIGIC III Image Processor Developed to maximize performance between the capture and
recording stages of digital photography, the EOS Rebel XSs DIGIC III Image Processor works hand in hand with Canons CMOS sensor to achieve even higher levels of performance. The entire electronic system is totally redesigned, giving the camera its incredible combination of
speed and image quality. Digital noise is significantly reduced in shadow areas, and color
reproduction is superior.
Auto Lighting Optimizer in action
Auto Lighting Optimizer The EOS Rebel XSs Auto Lighting Optimizer is yet another image-quality tool that comes to the rescue in tricky lighting conditions. It can actually lighten dark
areas of a scene while ensuring that bright areas maintain tonal detail. In addition, it can increase
contrast in "flat" lighting, such as overcast days. Its now available in all shooting modes, including P, Tv, Av, and Manual.
Picture Style settings With the EOS Rebel XSs Picture Style technology, photographers can change the look of their digital photographs. Color, saturation, sharpness and contrast settings
create noticeable variation in the saved image. Changing a Picture Style setting is almost like a
35mm film user switching from one type of color film to another. In addition to six preset Picture
Style settings, Canon offers additional downloadable "Picture Style Files" that can be installed
into your camera for even more imaging options at your fingertips.
High-speed, wide-area 7-point AF with center cross-type sensors The EOS Rebel XS features
a high-speed, wide area 7-point AF system. It can focus using One-Shot AF mode, AI Focus AF,
AI Servo AF and Manual. The center, cross-type focus point operates flawlessly in lower-light
and lower-contrast settings. In Live View Function, the EOS Rebel XS can focus manually, with
5x or 10x magnification for focusing clarity.
Capture up to 3 frames/second
Excellent performance with 3.0 fps continuous shooting The EOS Rebel XS operates with
such effortless speed that operation is nothing short of intuitive. With instant startup times,
speedy autofocus and minimal shutter lag, the EOS Rebel XS is one of the fastest cameras
available today. It can shoot up to 3.0 fps (frames per second), in bursts of up to 514 JPEGs or 5
RAW files, so you'll never, ever miss a shot.
Large 2.5-inch LCD monitor with Live View Function The EOS Rebel XS has a bright 2.5-
inch TFT LCD monitor with 230,000 pixels and a viewing angle of 170 degrees. Its perfect for Live View composition or viewing camera settings like AF, ISO, Metering, AF Point selection
and flash options. And the maximum brightness of the EOS Rebel XSs LCD monitor is about 30 greater than its predecessor, which is a big benefit when you're using the camera in bright
Live View Function Live View Function enables you to view your subjects directly on the 2.5-
inch LCD monitor. Its easy to magnify any part of the scene 5x or 10x for precise manual focus. And now, there are two ways to use Autofocus along with Live View Function in the EOS Rebel
XS. You can even choose a grid overlay, perfect for keeping lines in your subject straight in your
pictures. In the studio, Live View Function can be used remotely via a computer through the
EOS Rebel XSs USB connection, and the included EOS Utility software.
Quick mode/Live mode
In Live View Function, the EOS Rebel XS has two AF modes: Quick mode, which uses the
cameras standard 7-point AF system, and Live mode, which is a contrast-based AF system that reads the sharpness of subjects right from the imaging sensor, and can be overridden by pressing
the AF mode selection button. A familiar feature in PowerShot cameras, Live mode AF uses
similar technologies to achieve focus, while Quick mode is more appropriate for capturing action
or for shooting in low light.
The target area for Live Mode AF is at the center by default, but it can be moved around most of
the picture area with the cross keys on the back of the camera.
EOS Integrated Cleaning System Photographers who must change lenses in dusty
environments will find the advanced Canon EOS Integrated Cleaning System a tremendous time
saver. Dust that settles on the sensor surface is removed using ultrasonic vibration. This Self
Cleaning Sensor Unit routine is automatically activated whenever the camera is powered on or
off. (It can also be manually activated.) A special collar positioned around the sensor collects the
loosened dust. Dust particles can also be automatically removed via software. By shooting a
plain white subject, the photographer can acquire dust position data that is transmitted along with
the image (whether JPEG or RAW). Canon Digital Photo Professional (DPP) version 3.3 or later
software can be used to manually or automatically erase the dust spots. Its not one feature, its a built-in system to minimize the effect of dust in high-resolution digital images.
Self Cleaning Sensor Unit A key element of minimizing dust is preventing it from clinging to
the front surface of the imaging sensor. To combat against this, the EOS Rebel XS features a
Canon-designed Self Cleaning Sensor Unit. The low-pass filter at the front of the sensor shakes
off dust automatically with ultrasonic vibrations, removing dust from the sensor assembly. The
EOS Rebel XS also has a coating on the front surface of the low-pass filter, to increase its
resistance to dust sticking to the sensor.
Dust Delete Data Detection
Dust Delete Data Detection Dust that may still remain on the front of the sensor can also be
erased with software included in Digital Photo Professional (DPP) Version 3.3 or later software.
A simple test shot of a plain, white object can be taken, using a menu setting. This Dust Delete
