Default Digital Rebel vs S50

I am deciding whether buying the Digital Rebel would be a good move for me. I would like to compare the S45 or S50 and the Rebel. I own the S50 and I love the camera for point and shoot. I do some manual settings but I am just learning how to use a camera with manual settings. It takes beautiful pictures except I am having problems with photos of interiors of homes. I am taking photos of rooms for brochures. My problem is it is hard to get the lighting right when the room has too much light streaming in or if the room is dark in other areas. The photos come out either too bright or too dark. It is hard to get a happy medium. I have tried many tricks that photographers as well as websites have showed me but it is still a problem. The other problem is that I am not getting a very wide view of the room due to the fixed lense on the S50. I would like to know if you can get a wider view with the Rebel(18-55mm lense). Is this considered a wide angled lense or what lense should I consider for a wide angle lense? I would imagine that the Rebel would do better with lighting and shadows in rooms than the S50.
I have an older Canon Elan SLR with different autofocus lenses. I have heard that these lenses should fit the Rebel. How can I tell these lenses would work before I buy the Rebel. If the lenses fit this also would be a deciding factor in buying a Digital Rebel.
Thanks for your help

Have you tried underexposure if an interior is too bright?
If you want to shoot photos for brochures, you may find the Rebel much more satisfactory. The image quality is much better and it gives more options to make the lens fit the job. Yes your old Eos/Elan lens will fit the Rebel. However some old third party lenses may not work with the new digital Canon slr's. Maybe take your beloved lense(s) to the shop if you consider the Digital Rebel.

Still there is a problem with photography and what we tend to see. Digital cameras have a problem with dynamic range of colors & light variety. The dslr cameras perform better than the point and shoot digital cameras.
