Canon released the Canon Rebel XTi digital SLR camera to counter Nikon's new D80. The camera features a 10 megapixel sensor and will be available in September.
To date, there are now three 10-megapixel consumer-level D-SLRs available in the US: The Nikon D80, Sony Alpha A100, and now the Canon Rebel XTi.
But the pricing on the Rebel XTi is the lowest of these three. With the 18-to-55-mm kit lens, the Rebel XTi will list for $899. For just body alone, the camera will go for $799. I also expect to see a price drop once the Rebel XTi really hits the market.
Like most other D-SLRs, the Rebel XTi is equipped with a 2.5-inch LCD and shoots at 3 fps. It also has a top shutter speed of 1/8000th second, and an ISO range of 100 to 1600. The camera shoots in a variety of JPEG+RAW combinations, and features 9 AF sensor points like the Sony A100 (though the D80 has 11 AF sensor points).
