DPReview got some juicy details of the new Canon EOS 450D, aka Rebel XSi. It has many first time features on the entry level Canon DSLR, such as Secure Digital (SD) format flash card, spot metering (4% at center), verification data (original decision data), highlight tone priority (“expose-to-the-right”), ISO in viewfinder, custom settings menu (My Menu), high ISO noise reduction (NR), etc.
With its low price of $800 (body only) and the nice set of features, the new Canon EOS 450D/Rebel XSi will put some pressure on Nikon’s aging D80. Since D80 has been out for more than a year now, I’d imagine the successor to D80 will be out soon (want some rumors?).
