I've got a Canon 450D and this is an excellent accompaniment to the manual which comes with the camera.
It's really easy to follow and is split into different chapters. It goes through the basics to start with, showing clearly how to set different options on the camera and recommending you pause and try it out yourself when appropriate.

I've been taking notes as I watch so that I can make the most of all the useful information and advice it gives. It's not supposed to replace the manual, but instead to work alongside it to explain all the extras the manual doesn't tell you.

Incidentally, the presenter does a really good job of giving you all the information in an engaging way. He explains all the technical language in a non-patronising but very understandable way and uses a 450D to demonstrate camera features while noting any small differences for 1000D users.

Highly recommended if you want to get to know and use your camera better.

HASH(0x8fe6c8c4) out of 5 stars Getting started with a new DSLR 23 Nov. 2008
By R. Wiggins - Published on Amazon.com

Sometimes working with these newer technologies can be a bit daunting. That is the dilemma I faced when I up-graded from a good film camera to a DSLR.... a few similarities but a totally new ball game so to speak. Thru Amazon, I ordered the Blue Crane Digital DVD, Introduction to the Canon XSI, along with another. It is the "only way" to learn this stuff. It is totally interactive... you can watch a video portion, pause the DVD.... play with the camera to understand that portion of the lesson, then click play.

I strongly recommend this product, it will cut the learning curve in half.

HASH(0x90c8cbe4) out of 5 stars Excellent training video 7 Oct. 2008

This training video is really excellent. It is well organized and shows you how to do just about everything with the complex Canon XSi camera. It takes you through many situations and shows you how to set up the camera and take the best picture possible. If you're new to the Canon XSi, you definitely want this video to get you started.

HASH(0x8fb61f60) out of 5 stars Good but surface level detail....... 5 Jan. 2009
By Michael A. White - Published on Amazon.com
Blue Crane offers a great tutorial on the Canon Rebel Xs and Xsi. I bought this DVD before I had received my camera so I could get familiar with the functions, setup etc. The instructor does an excellent job covering all of the features but he really does not go very deep. This is good on one hand it is easy for the novice to understand and pickup key terms. For anyone who already has some background with these key terms i.e speed, exposure, aperture, focus etc. it really leaves you yearning for more information. The instructor also jumps around making it a little confusing the first few times you watch the DVD. I think this is a great DVD for the beginner dSLR user. If your looking for something with more depth look elsewhere. Then again if you are looking for more depth you are most likely using a different Canon model anyways. I rate this DVD a must have for Canon Rebel XSi beginners.

Great basic video and easy to understand. I have just upgraded to a DSLR camera from a point and shoot and the menus and functionality confused me. This video was a great starting point helping me to understand the full range of functions of the camera including all of the shooting modes. I recommend this video to anyone in a similar situation that is looking for an easy-to-understand instructions.
