Introduction

Canon's digital Rebel camera line-up consists of the Canon T3i and T3 (released in 2011), T2i, T1i, XT, XTi, XS, XSi, and the line's first model, the EOS Digital Rebel. Because these cameras belong to the same family within Canon's digital line-up they share many features and specs. The differences between these nine camera bodies typically revolve around specific functionality, resolution and LCD monitor specifications.

Cameras Under 10 MP

The EOS Digital Rebel, released in 2003, featured a 6.5-megapixel CMOS (complementary metal-oxide semiconductor) sensor. The Digital Rebel used Type I and II Compact Flash memory cards, had an ISO range of 100 to 1600, and utilised a 1.8-inch TFT LCD monitor with 118,000 pixels. The Digital Rebel used a 22.7mm long and 15.1mm high sensor. The Digital Rebel measured 5.6 inches wide, 3.9 inches high and 2.9 inches deep. The camera weighed 558gr. The Digital Rebel XT uses an 8.2-megapixel CMOS sensor. The Rebel XT also utilises a 1.8-inch TFT LCD screen, except the screen on the XT uses 115,000 pixels. The Rebel XT uses an APS-C size sensor that measures 22.2mm long and 14.8mm high. The XT measures 3 inches wide, 3.7 inches high and 2.6 inches deep. The body weighs 485gr.

10 MP to 14.9 MP

The Digital Rebel XTi features a 10.5-megapixel APS-C size CMOS sensor. The XTi also features automatic and manual sensor-cleaning abilities. The XTi features a 2.5-inch TFT LCD monitor that utilises 230,000 pixels. The Rebel XTi measures 5 inches wide, 3.7 inches high and 2.6 inches deep. The body weighs 510gr. Canon's other 10.5-megapixel DSLR, the Rebel XS, is a lighter-weight DSLR that mimics the specs of the Rebel XTi with the exception of its memory cards. The XS was Canon's first consumer DSLR to use Secure Digital and SDHC memory cards instead of CF cards. With the introduction of the 12.4-megapixel Rebel XSi, Canon broke away from many of its previous feature sets. The XSi utilises 14-bit technology instead of the previous 12-bit technology. The XSi also features live-view technology. Live-view allows the photographer to see a live image on the camera's monitor instead of looking through the viewfinder. The monitor on the XSi measures 3 inches and uses 230,000 pixels. The XSi measures 5.1 inches wide, 3.8 inches high and 2.4 inches deep. The camera weighs 4763gr. The Rebel T3 features a 12.2-megapixel sensor, manual sensor cleaning, an ISO range of 100 to 6,400 and the ability to use SDXC memory cards. The T3 measures 5.1 inches wide, 3.9 inches high and 3.1 inches deep. The body weighs 4933gr.

Canon's 15.5-megapixel Rebel T1i features full HD video recording at resolutions up to 1,920-by-1,080 pixels. The T1i also features a 3-inch, 920,000-dot LCD screen with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings. Canon also expanded the ISO range on the T1i. The T1i has a manually set range of ISO 100 to 12,800. The T1i measures 5.1 inches wide, 3.8 inches high and 2.4 inches deep. The body weighs 4791gr. In the T2i, Canon increased the megapixels to 18, increased the resolution of the monitor to 1.04 million dots and added the ability to use SDXC memory cards. The T2i measures 5.1 inches wide, 3.8 inches high and 3 inches deep. The body with battery and memory card weigh 5301gr. Canon's T3i emulates the T2i but features an 18.7-megapixel sensor and a 3-inch LCD screen that swivels out from the body. The T3i measures 5.2 inches wide, 3.9 inches high and 3.1 inches deep.
