Got myself a Canon Rebel XS today at Best Buy. I have a few\nquestions.\n\n1. I know it can take photos in RAW format. But does it do so\nby default???\n\n2. After reading the manual, there is no mention on time frames\non charging the battery once the charge is depleted. How long\ndoes a full charge take?\n\n3. Is Aperture better than iPhoto? Is it worth than the money?\n\n4. What would your advice to a new owner be?\n\nAny help is appreciated.\n\nThanks.
