    Someone else may have benefited from your experience. That's what the forum is all about.

    Not all cameras have a DOF preview button and if there is one on my XSI, I haven't found it.

    The link above is general information on what the DOF is, not necessarily on an XSI

    It should be that little round button under the lens release button. Right next to the placard that says "Rebel XSi" or "450D".

    If your lens is wide open, you will not see anything. Stop down to f/8 or something, press the button - you should see the difference.

    Actually, it is on my Xsi, and this was actually quite helpful to me as it does apply to what the Xsi preview button does. ;) That's why I posted it. I was curious myself, found the info myself and thought I'd share. :meh:

    Thanks for the link on info on the button - many people I have spoken to have had little to no uses for the button (it does not help matters that its in a very inaccasable area of the camera to reach when naturally holding the gear).
