What do people think of the Canon Rebel XS DSLP camera?

Hey knox, almost bought one for the wife for her birthday tomorrow. Talked to some guys that work at a camers shop, they sugested I get the canon xti instead of the xs. Basicly the same camera exept the xti has less plastic and buttons are more durable. Got her a package xti 10.1 mp body 18-55 I think standard lens, case, 8g memory, extra battery, charger. Her dad had several lenses for his eos rebel camera that will fit her new slr. Several guys I work with have the canon rebel digital camera and love it.

We have a Rebel XTi Film camera and it is pretty awesome though I have to admit my wife has the photography skills in our family. I am a bit of an idiot when it comes to cameras but the XTi is easy to use and pretty intuitive. The only issue we had was that when we first got it we accidentally turned the "date stamp" on and it stamped a date (incorrect date at that) onto every one of our honeymoon pictures. Live and learn I guess.

Decent enough camera...at that price level you would be better served buying the Nikon D40 though. Assuming you are not a "pro" shooter the D40 will be easier to use. They have great pricing right now at Adorama or B&H Photo.

I have an XSi and I love it. Canon has a great reputation as far as I know.

I'd say if your going to spend that type of money for a camera look at the Canon 30D Though it's not as high of MP as the XSI you'll get much more features over the XSI possibly even the 40D if you want to spend a little more money. I had the Rebel XT and grew out of that camera within 8 months and upgraded.
