Better AF, better grip, faster.

The XS is just a crippled version of the XSi, which really isn't much of a leap ahead of the XTI. The XS was the least successful of the rebel series.

I disagree.

XS has Digic III, which gives it faster AF and less shutter lag, as well as faster processing and lower noise (just barely) at higher ISO. XS also has liveview and a better control layout.

Also, the XS has not even been out for a year, so how can you call it the least successful? It hasn't had time to outsell the Xti or xT yet.

I would say buy an XS.

One benefit is that it'll be a new body with warranty. Otherwise you "the OP" will need to analyze the pros and cons of both.

But realistically you should save a few more beans and buy the XSI with no second guessing.

Any lenses involved, or is it a straight body comparison you want?
I ask, because the XS would probably have the 18-55IS as the "kit" lens, while the XTi would have the significantly inferior 18-55.

I would vote for the XTI because the camera has so many features for a entry level camera. 400D is still in my bag and I am not ready to move on to something of the same class.

With the slight pocket change from the difference price of the two, you can save that for a lens, in my opinion. Then you can tell if you ready.


My setup in my bag.

I have the same question as the OP. I'm in the market for either one. I am leaning toward the XS for a few reasons. The live view is kind of a gimmick, but I like it, not only for me but because my wife will be using the camera and that will help her. The other reasons that were already mentioned is the IS lens and the Digic 3. Furthermore, you get a better battery and I like the grip better.

But I am a novice and don't really need/want the added whistles that the XTI has. So my choice is the XS

XS feels more plastic than the XTi

I started with my XS and will stand by it 100%. I would purchase it again based on the pictures that I have taken with it. I have not personally handled an XTi, but from my experiences with the XS, it is a wonderful camera for the price and nobody can dispute that.

The XS has the same AF system as the old XT, and the XTi is a lot better than that (especially in low light). The XTi also has a much faster shooting rate in RAW. Those 2 factors make it an easy win for the XTi for me.

Put it this way, if a Honda and Porsche were the same price which one would you get?
