"Great upgrade"on by homerlly
Pros This camera, my 3rd, in a line of great DSL's is another example of Canon's continued price and tech savy in a world of good cameras. Value and ease of operation plus the vast family of lens availabilty make the T1i another great camera.
Cons I really don't have any serious flaws.
Summary Best value for very good results. The automatic setting is all you'll need in most scenes. Have extra batteries and make sure you only use Class 6 SD cards, 16 gb is best.
Pros CNET editor wrote: "It keeps the same large, fixed 3-inch LCD," In fact it is the 3" 920,000 pixel screen found on the higher end Canon dSLRs, a substantial improvement over previous Rebel-line cameras.

Summary I haven't played with the camera but I believe the difference in screen resolution not mentioned in the review will be an important feature to consider. Five star rating assigned only because I had to pick something ... and I want the camera to be great.
Pros Best Rebel camera until T2I. HD Video recording, 15 megapixel sensor.
Cons Too small. Outdated. No external microphone support.
Summary Don't think about buying this camera unless it comes at an absolute bargain. This camera has been beaten by the T2I in every single way and this justifies the $200 price increase of the T2I. The 18 megapixel sensor on the T2I is superior, so is the build quality. The HD Video recording on the T2I also now supports 30 fps on 1080p and 640 x 480 video recording. The T2I also has external microphone support which leads to much improved sound. The sizes of both cameras leave much to be desired however. They are just too small to be taken as DSLRs. They seem even smaller than the Rebel XS. While consumers do like smaller sizes, DSLRs are not supposed to be the same size as the E-P1 and putting even a 17-85mm IS lens feels awkward. Imagine putting a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens on this camera without a battery grip...
Pros Every thing. Point and shoot function and manual function. Picture quality and easy use of the camera.
Cons 1040p Video. It should have at least 20 - 24 fps.
Summary this is my first Canon DSLR and it is the best camera i have ever owned.
"Great Camera"on by ryank82
Pros Canon, Light, HD Video Capture, Comfort
Cons 1080p only 20fps
Summary Overall I have been very happy with this camera. I got it with the 18-55is kit lens. I also added a 50mm f1.8 lens right away. The camera produces very sharp and vivid pictures. I have tested it in bright lit sunny days and also the darkest downtown night scenery. The body all though made of plastic seems like it will hold up well. The video feature all though not important to me seems to work very well, specially the 720p mode. I mainly got this camera over the Nikon I had for better lens compatibility. So far everything is going very well. Highly recommend this camera.
