Canon Digital Rebel XT Compared to Nikon D70s

If you are considering purchasing either the Canon Digital Rebel XT or the Nikon D70s digitalreview.ca have posted a side-by-side comparison of the two digital SLRs. Here is a short description of these cameras.

Nikon D70s
The Nikon D70s retains the same 6.1 megapixel DX-format CCD image sensor as the D70, but with a number of improvements. The autofocus system has been upgraded, with a new all-area search priority function that will improve focusing performance on fast-moving subjects. A larger 2.0? LCD display has been added, the bundled battery has been changed to a higher capacity EL-EL3a type, and the bundled charger replaced with a smaller MH-18a model. Finally, the camera’s menu system has been updated with a larger type-face and color-coded menus.

Canon Digital Rebel XT
Featuring Canon’s 8.0 Megapixel CMOS sensor, the DIGIC II Image Processor, and compatibility with over 50 EF Lenses-the new Digital Rebel XT has an all new lightweight and compact body, improved performance and the easiest operation in its class, simplifying complex tasks and ensuring the perfect shot every time. With intuitive simplicity, powerful performance and unprecedented affordability, the Rebel XT is the EOS digital camera for everyone.
