Rebel XT. Still usable?
Apr 10, 2013

Since I got my hands on a Canon G15, that has become my primary camera.  These type of images are no brainer for this camera!  What a guy!

But I still need a SLR for taking pictures of the night sky, night photography with long exposures and the such.  I wouldn't have hesitated to use the G15 if not for the darn 80 ISO problem. Grrr. I have an old Rebel XT that belongs to my brother and so I cannot really get rid of it.  But why would I want to?  Indoor pics with flash come out so natural and sharp!

But how good is it for the night photography scenarios I mentioned?  say I keep the ISO under 400, will the noise level be low?  I only have a 18-55 and I could probably get a slightly better lens but my budget is really tight. Will shooting in RAW be any better?

Thanks for any inputs you might have.
