Canon 350D/Rebel XT and 400D/Rebel XTi comparison and review

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Wayne J. Cosshall, Oct 18, 2006.

  1. Hi All,

    I've uploaded the comparison between the 350D and 400D to:
    <http://www.dimagemaker.com/specials/cameras/camtests.php>

    There are four articles with minimally compressed JPEGs plus all the RAW
    files for you to make you own conclusions.

    Cheers,

    Wayne

    It is very interesting how the night shots with the 400D seem to be much
    sharper but just the opposite in daylight.

    I noticed that too. I have no idea why but I will do some further
    testing and see if I can figure it out.

    Cheers,

    Given the difference in brightness and contrast between the picture pairs,
    all I can say is the camera's are very close, just as I would have expected.
    And the main thing to be learned, as you already state, is that there is no
    real noise penalty to be paid for the higher pixel count.
    I haven't tried playing with the raw files myself though to match them more
    closely, it wouldn't prove anything I want to know anyway :)
