I am considering a camera for my daughter. I'd appreciate input from Rebel users on the choice between the XSi and XTi.
Thanks.

XSi. CF pins are prone to breakage in the XT series.

I had a XSI before my 40D
It was a wonderful camera
Its Image Quality is at least as good if not better than the 50D, T1 or 40D at comparable ISO.

Cant comment on the XTI, but Ive read some reviews when I was researching the XSI that the XSI is a good upgrade to the XTI
I think Its current prices make it a good value DSLR

oh come on, all these people now saying the XSI has top notch IQ, just as I am about to "upgrade" to the T1i. aww man.

I agree, the 450D is a great camera. I have one now, but I Want video and a better screen, so it is the 500D for me.

Figured I'd chime in. I've got an XTi and I love it. It's my first dSLR and it's a more than capable camera (for me, anyway). I'm not planning on upgrading bodies anytime soon. With that said, I've never used an XSi but when I was researching bodies, I thought the XTi would be plenty for me and it is. Good luck to you and your daughter.

XSI is worth the extra bit of money. If the money is an issue get an XS...stay away from the Xti not a good idea.

You can take a look here

Is a comparison of the XTI, XSI and T1
Although the T1 has better overall numbers except for Low Light Iso (The T1 has more extended Iso range), The XSI holds its own very nicely , leaving the XTI behind on every department
Im not saying the XTI is not a good camera, just that I think the XSI is a better value bringing newer technology

The XSI is one of the nicest Rebels .

Can't argue with that kind of advice! Win - win for both of you. :D


Couple of DSLRs, number of lenses and other stuff... plenty short on talent.

snakekid hit on what I'd really like to do.

Our daughter & her family live in TX, about 1000 miles from us so we don't see them often. What I want is better photos of our granddaughter. I put this query out about the Rebels as I know nothing about the series, but I am pretty close to sending my 30D in for clean-up/tune-up, giving it to her, buying her a decent lens and me the 7D.

Thanks for all your input. I had done some paper research, but there is nothing like hearing from folks with hands-on experience.
