First impressions of Canon's Rebel XS

Canon's Rebel XS was released in 2008, so why even write about it now in 2012? Simply because it is still a capable camera, and not everyone has the interest or budget to buy a brand new DSLR. If you are looking for a Canon on the secondary market, a Rebel XS is definitely worth a look.

I recently had an opportunity to take a few photos with my brother's Canon Rebel XS while he was up in town to visit when my son was born. The Rebel was very pleasant to use, fits nicely in the hand and has the photo quality you would expect from a Canon DSLR. Additionally, I was pleasantly surprised with the presence of a depth of field preview button - something not always found on an entry level body.

Below is a photo taken with the Rebel and Canon's 55-250mm IS lens.
