Canon has increased to a 9 point autofocus from the XT’s 7 point autofocus. The XT uses a smaller independent LCD screen to display shooting information.

You can adjust the color saturation and sharpness of the picture.


The Rebel XTi comes with software to bridge your computer and camera. You receive a program for Mac called ImageBrowser and the Zoombrowser for the PC.
