Compatible with more than 50 EF and EF-S Lenses and most EOS System accessories including EX-series Speedlites and a dedicated Battery Grip
The EOS Digital Rebel XT is compatible with all Canon lenses in the EF lineup, ranging from ultra-wide-angle to super-telephoto lenses and including Canon's new EF-S series Lenses, manufactured specifically for the Digital Rebel series and the EOS 20D. The EF lineup employs advanced optical know-how to deliver unprecedented performance in all facets of the photographic process. Rebel XT users will find the all-new EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Lens a perfect match for their new camera. It offers a 35mm equivalent of a 27-136mm zoom range and includes Canon's Image Stabilizer (which adds an equivalent of 3 stops) and a full time manual focus mechanism, all in a compact, robust construction.
The EOS Digital Rebel XT features the acclaimed E-TTL II flash metering system. Whether using its pop-up flash or any of the flashes in the Speedlite line, E-TTL II provides stable flash brightness through numerous exposures.
Canon's new Speedlite 580 EX is perfectly suited to the Digital Rebel XT. It features a maximum guide number of 58, together with an auto zoom function that compensates for the sensor size, enabling high output flash with more accurate results. It includes an AF assist beam that works in conjunction with the Rebel's focusing system and automatically sends color temperature information to the camera when the flash fires, producing consistently accurate colors.
