Auto Lighting Optimizer
The EOS Rebel XS’s Auto Lighting Optimizer is yet another image-quality tool that comes to the rescue in tricky lighting conditions. It can actually lighten dark areas of a scene while ensuring that bright areas maintain tonal detail. In addition, it can increase contrast in “flat” lighting, such as overcast days. It’s now available in all shooting modes, including P, Tv, Av, and Manual.
Picture Style Settings
With the EOS Rebel XS’s Picture Style technology, photographers can change the look of their digital photographs. Color, saturation, sharpness and contrast settings create noticeable variation in the saved image. Changing a Picture Style setting is almost like a 35mm film user switching from one type of color film to another. In addition to six preset Picture Style settings, Canon offers additional downloadable “Picture Style Files” that can be installed into your camera for even more imaging options at your fingertips.
