Rebel XSi

So I didn’t post about it a while back because my blog was in transition, but on January 24, nearly a month ago, Canon introduced the world to the new Rebel XSi. Personally, I think it’s a dumb model name, and it’s kinda hard to say. Sounds like “excess eye” to me. In any case, it’s got some pretty cool features. DPReview has a nice copy of the press release, as well as an article detailing What’s Changed since my beloved XTi was introduced in late August 2006.

I must say that it certainly has some nice features to it. But when asked by my friends if I’ll be upgrading, my typical response right now is that I will not. I think my next camera will likely be a full-frame camera such as the 5D but that would cost me an arm and a leg, so that won’t be happening any time soon. I suppose the XSi would make a nice backup body if my XTi died and I needed a replacement ASAP. But in the meantime, I’m very content with the body I have, and I will likely wait a number of years before buying again.
