The camera takes outstanding pictures; however, when using the built-in flash, the pics are ok.

-SW quote

This camera is great and has many feature that are automatic to manual -- however, taking pictures at night with the built-in flash is a little weak. Needs an external flash to fill-in the background.

Product Overview


Speedy, Precise Operation



With instant startup times, speedy autofocus and minimal shutter lag, the EOS Rebel XS is one of the fastest cameras available today. It provides excellent performance with 3 fps continuous shooting, to over 500 full-resolution JPEGs or 5 RAW images in a burst, and reduced shutter lag time.

The Canon EOS Rebel XS Digital Camera incorporates a number of high-end functions and technology found in Canon's professional SLR models, including an improved autofocus sensor, and an advanced Live View function. Plus the proprietary DIGIC III image processor ensures that the fine details and natural colors of the images are optimally recorded, and also manages the camera's efficient energy consumption and high-speed signal processing performance.

The 10.5 megapixel APS-C size CMOS sensor employs large microlenses over each pixel to reduce noise and enhance sensitivity up to ISO 1600. The camera also incorporates the Highlight Tone Priority and High-ISO Noise Reduction functions (previously found only on Canon's Professional Digital SLRs) and the camera is equipped with Canon's Auto Lighting Optimizer technology, which corrects image brightness and contrast automatically to prevent underexposure with backlit scenes.

The EOS Rebel XS is capable of continuously capturing 3 frames per second for bursts of over 500 images, or until the memory card is full, to help photo enthusiasts capture split second action at just the right moment. Plus, the camera is equipped with a host of useful creative controls, including shutter speeds ranging from 1/4000 - 30 seconds plus Bulb, and a wide range of exposure modes from fully automatic to fully manual.

The 2.5-inch high-resolution LCD monitor makes it easy for users to review images and scroll through the menus, and also features a broadened color gamut and a wide viewing perspective in all directions. Furthermore the EOS Rebel XS camera features Live View - which allows users to frame shots through the LCD screen rather than the viewfinder - which is particularly useful when shooting at odd angles or in situations when looking through the viewfinder is impractical.

The Rebel XS DSLR utilizes Canon's EOS Integrated Cleaning system. This involves a Self-Cleaning Sensor Unit that shakes dust particles off of the low-pass filter in front of the sensor, along with post processing with the supplied Digital Photo Professional software. Here the camera maps any spots that may remain on the sensor and subsequently subtracting dust spots from the final image during post processing.

Features
The CMOS image sensor of the EOS Rebel XS captures images with exceptional clarity and tonal range, incorporating many of the same technologies to maximize light gathering efficiency that are used in Canon’s higher-end professional SLR digital cameras, including the use of micro lenses on the sensor. The APS-C size sensor (22.2 x 14.8mm) produces an effective 1.6x increase in the lens’s marked focal length when attached
Developed to maximize performance between the capture and recording stages of digital photography, the latest-generation DIGIC III Image Processor works in concert with Canon’s CMOS sensor to achieve the highest levels of performance possible
With instant startup times, speedy autofocus and minimal shutter lag, the EOS Rebel XS is one of the fastest cameras available today. It provides excellent performance with 3 fps continuous shooting, to over 500 full-resolution JPEGs or 5 RAW images in a burst, and reduced shutter lag time
High-magnification viewfinder that provides excellent brightness and clarity; all relevant shooting information, including ISO, is displayed right in the viewfinder so it’s easy to change settings without moving the camera away from the eye
Display-Off sensor automatically turns the LCD monitor off whenever the camera is at the photographer’s eye, to save power and reduce visual distractions
Bright 2.5-inch TFT color LCD monitor with 230,000 pixels and a viewing angle of 170°. It’s perfect for Live View composition or viewing camera settings like AF, ISO, Metering, AF Point selection and flash options
Precision 7-point wide area AF sensor for fast, accurate focus even in dim lighting, and has a number of focus modes, including One-Shot AF, AI Focus AF, AI Servo AF and Manual
35-zone evaluative metering system with improved white balance that analyzes light based on each zone in the viewing area, thereby enabling the camera to choose the overall best exposure for the entire scene
Exclusive Auto Lighting Optimizer, which can actually lighten dark areas of a scene while ensuring that bright areas maintain detail without getting washed out. In addition, it can increase contrast in “flat” lighting, such as overcast days
Picture Style technology provides photographers with the ability to change the look of their digital photographs, by allowing users to make adjustments to color, saturation, sharpness and contrast setting, and create noticeable variation in the saved image
Compatible with popular Secure Digital (SD) and Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) memory cards
Keep dust off your image sensor and prevent dust from ruining your images with the advanced Canon EOS Integrated Cleaning System
Compatible with all Canon lenses in the EF and EF-S lineup, ranging from ultra-wide angle to super telephoto lenses
Acclaimed E-TTL II flash metering system. Whether using its flush-mounted integral flash or any of the flashes in the EX Speedlite line, E-TTL II provides reliable flash output through numerous exposures
