Canon EOS 400D review (Digital Rebel XTi)

Value For Money

Well-Rounded Package

The latest round of cameras are all selling at the £600-£700 mark, and the Canon EOS 400D fits well into this price bracket. This is a new sector really – positioned between entry-level models like the Nikon D50 and prosumer models such as the EOS 30D or Nikon D200, even though this is Canon’s entry-level model. However, the build, design and features all add up to a well-rounded package that’s worth every penny.
