Partial metering is not spot metering by any means.

No it isn't. But, for someone who is getting their first DSLR, it would be efficient.

Does the XTi have a histogram display? I have a Canon SD, and the histogram is only available for photographs that are already taken. Other cameras I've owned (Pentax, Olympus) show the histogram of what you are attempting to shoot, and that's sometimes useful.

To my knowing…. it dosn't.

It does tell you when your shooting in M mode if you are over exposing your picture or underexposing it though and by how many stops depending on the metering mode you have it on.

the xt does now have spot metering, and its not very ergonomic

it has spot metering or partial or whatever you wanna call it.

It does not have point metering. frankly, in practice, the difference is minimal. you can get the same damn results if you're not a retard.

Point metering comes on the 1d and possibly the 40d is rumoured to have it.

btw.

Partial metering = 10%-15% of the frame

Spot Metering = 2% of the frame.

I think you should go with this camera, personally

I went to Leo's to pick one of these up but they were all sold out. Just my luck.

ya i was going to reccomend him the d70 but then i think it would be hard to get a set up for under 1000
d50 is a really good option

The D70s is selling for less this year, likely with the D80's introduction.

Nikon lists it at $1049, but it can be had for less.

You can get a cheep D70s nowadays, even new.
Ebay? If not, go rebel XT and get a good lens. I hear the XTi's amazing sensor shaker isn't that amazing anyways.
