The EOS 450D (called EOS Rebel XSi in North America and EOS Kiss X2 in Japan[1]) is a 12.2-megapixel digital single-lens reflex camera that is part of the Canon EOS line of cameras. It is the successor to the EOS 400D/Digital Rebel XTi. It was announced on 23 January 2008 and released in March 2008 and April 2008 in North America.[2][3] It was superseded by the Canon EOS 500D (Rebel T1i in North America) which was announced on 25 March 2009.[4]

Like its predecessors, it takes EF and EF-S lenses as well as a large selection of EOS system accessories.
