The launch completes a refresh of the entire digital EOS line-up and confirms Canon's commitment to digital SLR research and development. "The Canon EOS Rebel kick started the digital SLR revolution, becoming the best selling model of all time," "The new Canon Rebel XT will now take over, playing a major role in Canon's digital SLR strategy," said Mogens Jensen, Head of Canon Consumer Imaging Europe. "Canon predicts the D-SLR market will double in size by the end of 2006."

The Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT features a newly developed, second generation, extremely low noise APS-C size 8.0 Megapixel CMOS sensor, the fourth new CMOS sensor from Canon in just twelve months.

The Canon Rebel XT is more than 10% lighter and 25% smaller by volume than the Canon Rebel. It is available in both black and silver finishes. "The Canon EOS Rebel XT combines ease of use with many of the same compelling technologies found in Canon's professional series EOS cameras, chosen by more than 70% of pro photographers at the 2004 Athens Olympics," observed Jensen. "For the first time, every camera in the EOS digital range now incorporates a Canon original CMOS sensor and Canon DIGIC II processor."
