Canon is not disclosing the rated shutter life for the Canon EOS Rebel XSi / 450D. But in general, the Canon shutter for their budget models is about 50,000 actuations. This means that your shutter should roughly last 50,000 shots before it might start acting weird and need to be replaced at the Canon service center.

50,000 is just a rough guess in general. It could fail after 25,000 or keep going strong for over 100,000 shots.

Camera lifespan

If you take good care of your equipment, they can last a long time. If you don't, then it may break down before the actuations. The shutter rating to certain number of shots is not equivalent to lifespan of the camera. It does not mean that your camera will not work after these many shots. It is not like the expiration date on food products.

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
