When Canon released its 10D in March 2003, it was the most affordable 6+ megapixel DSLR (Digital SLR) available (then, $1500). However, just six months after the release of the 10D, Canon released another DSLR - the Digital Rebel (then, $1000). Considering such a big price difference, the Rebel seems to offer similar, and in most cases, exactly the same features as the 10D. The Rebel promises the same CMOS sensor as the 10D, delivering a high-resolution 6.3 megapixel image. They both use the EF lens mount, which is compatible with any lens in the Canon EF line, and both have a seven-point auto focus system.
What is the difference between the 10D and the Digital Rebel? Why would you pay the extra money for the 10D? We're going to take a look at the differences between these two cameras and find out.
