Pros HD video is beautiful. Easy to use. Multiple shots very quickly. Color is crisp.
Cons Video focus is tedious until you get used to method.
Summary Takes great pictures and video of the family and work. An absolutely essential buy for those who want their pictures to look professional but are not professional photographers.
Pros Live view works great. Automatic settings take great shots. Broad ISO range.
Cons LCD makes function navigation a bit more difficult than other makes.
Summary I got a great deal from American on this camera. I got the body, the 18-55 mm lens, the 55-250 mm lens, a 4 GB memory card, a mini HDMI cable plus a $50 gift certificate for nfl.com all for $799. I've been playing with it for a few days and it takes incredible shots, even in the automatic modes. The live view and movie modes are serious upgrades over the Olympus EVOLT 510 I had. Great deal on a great kit!
Pros Outstanding picture quality, beautiful features, user friendly and a strong body that can take falls
Cons The viewfinder is a mess and has only 9 AF sensors in it when compared to competition nikon d3100 which has 11
Summary beautiful design, hard to break, pretty good inbuilt flash, what more can a guy ask. Its worth every penny. a sound investment foe anyone who wants to take good pictures.
Pros The Canon EOS T1i has been with me for the last 6 months and I have enjoyed every picture I have clicked with it. It is an amazingly user friendly DSLR, awesome for beginners like me.
Cons The only problem I have is that while using the display for clicking pictures, one needs to manually focus the lens. Auto focus is disabled when clicking photographs with the display on.
Summary Quite easily the best DSLR I have known. I did an extensive research which included the comparison between the Canon EOS T1i, NIKON D3000, NIKON D5000 and the SONY Alpha series, while buying this one. I found T1i to be a 100% value for money product. I have already recommended the T1i to three of my friends and they will soon be proud owners of the Canon EOS T1i.

Pros Quality of build. Interface. Excellent fit.
Cons Live mode could have been better.
Summary I purchased this camera 2 days ago, since then I have taken quite a few quality shots. This is my hobby since I was 10, I have had been using film up to this point. I was leaning towards the D90 but found that as my first DSLR it was overkill. For the price I paid for the T1I, I have no regrets, and will proably trade up as soon as I become familiar with the medium.
