I have a Rebel XT (350D on your side of the pond), and the two most useful features, IMO, are the auto-braketing and custom white balance.

I understand the XTi/400D also has auto-white balance bracketing. Since I've learned that the white balance really shifts a lot from sunshine to shade to cloudy, I'd use those three when shooting on a sunny day. The worst part about selecting the proper white balance is the likelihood of forgetting to reset it when the light changes (something I learned the hard way). Easiest way around that is to shoot RAW, then select the white balance after-the-fact, in the Canon Digital Professional software.

But there's nothing like a good exposure, and when you're shooting a scene with deep shadows and bright highlights, the auto expo bracketing is like a dream come true. (By the way, when shooting from a tripod, using the infrared remote shutter release, the camera will always take all three shots if it's set to auto-bracket).

And by all means, get a fat CF card! I just picked up a 2gig card on sale ($25). Don't know how much they cost over there, but there's nothing like knowing you can shoot with complete abandon and delete the junk later.

Have fun!
