I have an XTi, is a T1i worth the upgrade if it can be had for cheap?

I replied to an ad on my local craigslist for a T1i, 18-55 IS, 8 gig memory card for 450. I am happy with the Xti and doubt I would use the video of the T1i, but I figured I could probably sell my Xti and 18-55 IS to cover a majority of the cost. So should I or shouldn't I buy it?

Sell the 18-55 IS (unless you need it) and you get the T1i for about $360. Sell the XTI for around $300. About $60 out of pocket and you gain a memory card.

Go for it....now.

Yes... high ISO IQ is better. Minimal $ investment on your side.

Why though besides it being cheap and the high iso? I worry about the larger mp count and sensor size

If you can definitely sell your current gear, go for it!! If you think you would have trouble selling, I would just save up to get a nicer body, and keep your current as backup (or sell in the future).

Good luck,

I have cash so me buying it doesn't rely on me selling my current body

The sensors are the same size.

My vote is to hold out and buy something out of the rebel series. (like me)

Not sure I understand. Both the xti and t1i are both rebels. Are you suggesting more of a Prosumer body like the 50d or 7d instead of a rebel body?

"Out of the Rebel series" means something not IN the Rebel series (40D, 50D, 7D....)

Like Gordon said, anything not a rebel. Try closer to 40D or 50D; you can find a used/refurbed 40D for about the price of the T1i these days.

The 50D is slightly above that, but again there are used one's floating around, you might find a deal.

if you don't use the video feature it seems pointless

Thanks for clarifying. Sometimes using the statement "out of" means picking something from within that category, hence the request for clarification. If I am picking up a toy "out of the pool" that might mean one on the ground or removing one from the pool itself.

Agreed. The Xti is a great camera and you'll be lucky to sell it for $300. Figure out what you really want in a cam and upgrade accordingly, not just because it is newer.

I have both cameras (upgraded to T1i, but still have and occasionally use Xti). The biggest improvements are the larger, sharper LCD, Live View, ALO and HTP. The additonal pixels are good, I suppose, but I've never made prints bigger than 11x14 anyway. After having the camera for more than a year, I've never even tried (this is not a joke) the movie feature on the T1i.

In my mind, the upgrade is worth it for the LCD alone.


60D, EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5, EF-S 18-135mm 3.5-5.6 IS, EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS, Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8, EF 28mm f/1.8, EF 50mm f/1.8, EF-S 60mm f/2.8 macro, EF 85mm f/1.8, 430ex, 220ex, Alien Bee B400 (2), Alien Bee B800 (2)
