I will need to remotely control my shutter (ie, take a pic) at a range that none of my current remoteless shutter remotes could come close to. I am thinking probably 50 yards about.

I heard a friend talking about the possibility of a radio frequency remote, which would eliminate the need for line of sight and prabably increase working range.

Does such a remote exist for the Canon XSi?

    \$\begingroup\$ I've tested my Yongnuo RF-602s to a range of 650+ ft (~200m). Be surprised if the 603s aren't at least that good. Bonus=>they're also flash triggers. :) \$\endgroup\$

I have used this $35.95 Vello radio remote and it works very well with great range.

Amazon advertises a RF remote for ~US$70, though I have not used it myself.
