Chapter 2. Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi Roadmap

2. Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi Roadmap

It’s time for you to get to know your Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi up close. Unfortunately, there are so many buttons and dials and knobs on this camera that many new owners—especially those coming to the XTi from point-and-shoot models—find the array of controls bewildering. What you really need is a roadmap, showing you where everything is and how it’s used.

Unfortunately, the diagrams provided in the XTi’s manual have more resemblance to a world globe than a roadmap: everything is there in great detail, but you almost have to know exactly what you’re looking for to find it. You’re supplied with two main black-and-white outline drawings that cover the front, back, two sides, and top and bottom of the camera in a single pair of views, adorned with several dozen labels per illustration. The print and drawings are so small and cramped that you might have some difficulty sorting out individual features. The only good thing about the manual’s global view is that each label is supplemented with one to five page cross-references, so you can flip back and forth through the pages to retrieve the information you really wanted to know. Several of the third-party books aren’t much better, featuring black-and-white photos of front, back, and top views, and lots of labels.
