Just got my Canon XTi- sharing the experience
So far the only problems I've come across is 1) That grip is bad. I have small hands but my pinky still hangs on the bottem. 2) If holding the camera and viewing the shots on it, my tip of my middle finger hurts like heck after a min. the full weight of the camera rests on that part as your hand "hooks" the camera to keep it in your hands while your thumbs operate the buttons. 3) Nose grease WILL get on the lcd screen every single time. 4) What every other Nikon person will tell you.

And since my eyes are bad, if I remove my glasses the diopler(sp) wont focus enough for me. But thats the same for any camera. Here's an interesting story on the pickup of the camera. Since it was on a waiting list at this camera store my name was on the bottem but he gets multiple shipments in a week for the XTi so I was told I would get mine this week. By the net day he said one came in for me.

I went down to pick up the camera the next day (today). He sold the camera to me as a body only for $799 (box said 18-55mm lens, but he removed it) I then opted for the 17-85mm IS lens. Ended up paying $1299. Which sounded fair. His store, like most small stores (btw, in Hawaii, although his store is small, hes one of the ONLY camera stores left) has a no return policy.

So he allowed me to open the box. I was so nervous I dropped the lens cap from the lens and scared me to death. Anyways, I put it on and turned it on. Everything was fine. But I saw a hot RED pixel stuck on the screen.

Its 240 pages of all the different lens and shows you pictures of how that lens would look. Also has a whole area on how to use apature, macro, shutter, etc. I love it! I still need to buy a 4gb card, deside on a external flash and a zoom lens. But this camera shop has my business for now on...

Is Canon pictures normally softer than other cameras? I noticed it's like my camera is slightly out of focus...

Comment #1

All DSLR cameras are softer than point-and-shoot cameras by default since they apply less sharpening with the camera's built-in software. Canon are actually less soft than other DSLR. The difference between softness and focus-errors are that softness is uniform while focus errors affect things at different distances differently. Try a few pictures with several objects at different distances and see how it looks. If you have focus problems, you may need to get your lens checked. - Itai.

So if some seem sharper (not as sharp as teh sony still) at a 105mm vs 35mm then thats a lens issue and not a defect?..

Comment #3

Absolutely, since you are just varying the lens and sharpness changes, then the lens is the cause. Sharpness varies greatly from lens to lens and even with a single lens will vary accross focal length and apertures. Most lenses are at their sharpest 2-stops down from their maximum. A common mistake of DSLR buyers is not to save enough money.

For got lenses. The Canon 18-55 kit lens is reputated to be very poor. On this page, there are links to several sites reviewing lenses:.

Does any know why this camera will not work with an older Canon Speedlite that worked with my Canon EOS 630. I am not looking for any fancy E-TTL stuff, but it will simply not flash...

Comment #5

As I don't have one of these, but do have 2 20Ds now you might need to set up a custom function in the menues to tell the camera to "always fire". Check the manual to see if that is what you need to do. That way it will fire any time the built in is poped up, or an auxillary flash is mounted & turned on...
