[Photography] Canon EOS Rebel XTi for sale!

So, lord knows enough other things have been going on, but at least work's been going smoothly (or better than smoothly), and I've got my photography to keep me sane.

In that keeping-myself-sane vein, I've finally taken the plunge towards pro-level equipment and picked up the Canon EOS 40D. This means I'm potentially going to sell off my old Rebel XTi; Vonda was thinking of taking it, but decided that a DSLR is a little much for her right now.

So! I'm going to offer it up to friends, and if no one is interested I'll just keep it around as a spare. What I'd be selling:

  • Canon Digital Rebel XTi (black)
  • EF-S 18-55m f/3.5-5.6 'kit lens.'
  • 2 spare Canon XTi batteries (3 total) plus travel charger.
  • 2GB SanDisk CF card.
  • Canon wired remote shutter release.
  • Canon IR wireless line-of-sight shutter release.
  • USB cable
  • Small padded carrying backpack for aforementioned items.

The disks and manual have long since been misplaced, but both can be downloaded from Canon.com freely. The camera has been upgraded to the most recent firmware, and is basically still in like-new condition despite fairly regular use. (I take good care of my photography equipment!)

Since the camera body + kit lens still go for about $480 used on Amazon.com, and this includes spare batteries (important!), a decently large storage card, both of the remotes Canon offers for the XTi and a carrying case, I'm figuring on $650. Obviously, if you cannot come pick it up or I cannot easily drop it off, in the case of my more-distant friends, I may have to add $10 or so onto that for UPS!

Anyone interested?


Almost have the same setup except that I have a 4 GB toshiba microdrive CF card instead of the 2GB CF card you have.

Probably end up going the same path and getting another canon with a more sensitive sensor too. Maybe in the fall.
Oh, I have a 4GB CF card. (And a few more 2GB CF cards.) I'm just not including them in the sale, 'cause I /use/ the 4GB one. That's still perfectly usable for the 40D!

And yah, the sensitive sensor was why I went with the upgrade. I want to be able to push to 3200 (even if it's just pushed 1600 on the 40D, it's still better than nothing) when shooting hand-held in dark venues.

Well, the sensor, and the fact that (as ridiculous as I know this is), I felt like the L-series lens I received as a gift was going to rip the front of the camera off, since it weighed a good 3x as much as the XTi body. ;)
lol... lens weighs more and costs more than the XTi body
To put it mildly.

(Obviously, I am not selling THAT lens!)

Seconded. Niiiiiice rig for someone such as me that doesn't have the time to do real pro stuff justice.

Glad to see you're putting the time in... I can already tell it's doing good things for you.
The XTi isn't really a pro rig. It's just a decent consumer DSLR. The 40D, my new one, is a low-end pro rig. Above that, the 5D is what a lot of pro studio photographers use, and the 1D is what folks like Art Wolfe shoot with when they're making award-winning wildlife books in godforsaken distant areas. :)
Oo! Oo! Oo! Must confer with SWMBO though...
Woohoo, you have a taker! Will continue off-blog.
Alrighty! My Gmail is ceruleansparks, so you can find me that way for IM or e-mail purposes. :)
