Canon has melded the EOS Digital Rebel XTi/400D and EOS Rebel XSi/450D to create the EOS Rebel XS/1000D, its latest entry-level digital SLR. Announced today, the new model combines the body, control layout, battery, SD/SDHC card slot and DIGIC III processing circuitry of the XSi/450D with the 10.08 million image pixel CMOS sensor and 2.5 inch (diagonal) rear LCD of the XTi/400D to come up with a starter camera that is expected to sell for about US$200 less than the XSi/450D.
