Canon Debuts New EOS Digital Rebel Camera

Canon on Thursday took the wraps off the 10.1-megapixel EOS Digital Rebel XTi SLR camera. Shipping in mid-September, the camera will be available two ways: with an EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 zoom lens (US$899) and without it ($799). Its predecessor, the 8-megapixel Digital Rebel XT, will be reduced in price to $799 with the zoom lens and $699 without it.

The Digital Rebel XTi features a redesigned Canon CMOS sensor, a 2.5-inch LCD with a 160-degree viewing angle, the EOS Integrated Cleaning System, a nine-point auto-focus system, a three-frames-per-second maximum burst rate in large/fine and raw quality modes, and six Picture Style settings. It comes with Canonis Digital Photo Pro software for organizing, viewing, and editing images.
