Pros + Color / loyalty.
+ Very high resolution.
+ Very good image quality
+ Faster autofocus.
+ Ergonomic controls.
+ Brilliant display.
+ Image noise performance at high ISO values.
+ Movie function with good quality.
+ Large lens of available parking.
Cons - very large RAW files (16GB = 550 images).
- very large movie files.
- missing intermediate step for image size for example 12MP instead of 8MP.
- tens. Scene modes on a DSLR unnecessary.
- Live View focusing unusable even while recording.
Summary Of course, this camera also has its limitations and one should always keep an eye on the prize, judging the performance. You can currently over $1,400 for any advanced features of the 7D or housing of the 50D. For me here the price-performance ratio and is even exceeded. However, it should also mention that I not one of the photographers to each image belongs to 200x magnification on genome aberrations, because what counts for me especially because of the fun of photography and the joy of the good shots.Edit Link
considering switching to a DSLR but was advised to take in each case the camera at times in the hand, to check whether the camera is comfortable to hold and to operate. Not every great man's hand in harmony with the little Canon.
For me, a strong buy recommendation and a 5-star product! The move has paid off for me in any case.
I use the rest of the camera with the Canon EF-S 18-135 IS as always plan and I'm surprised really positive!

Pros Excellant video at 1080p 30, 25 or 720p 60
Excellant image quality with 18mp
Best in class LCD screen (high resolution & accurate colors)
Cons Kit lens is not that great
Summary For the price of the T1i, you are getting a 7D with lower frame rate bursts and less autofocus points. This really upstages the 50d, d5000, d90 and to some extent the 7d. Dont listen to Lori, this is the best entry level dslr out there and will be for a while. If you read any real unbiased review, you'll see.
Pros Produces sharp images and images are still nice at ISO3200. HD video recording capability. uses SanDisk memory card which makes it easy to transfer files.
Cons Very small and lightweight which promotes camera shake. Some ways to alleviate this is to get a battery grip and/or use a heavy lens w/ IS. The max shutter speed is at 1/4000 and continuous shooting is only 3.7
Summary This camera is a must have for 1st time DSLR buyers. The feautures are comparable to the semi-professional cameras such as the Canon 50D and 7D, and the kit lens (18-55mm) produces better images than the 50D/7D kit lens (28-124mm). This camera still produces good images at a high ISO3200. ISO6400 is pretty fuzzy and the H-ISO is beyond fuzzy...I cant see why anyone would want to use that. For a 1.6x cropped sensor (APS-C sensor) , it produces good 18MP images. The AutoExposureBracketing feature and AutoWhiteBracketing features are fun and easy to use. The controls/buttons are ergonomically perfect. They are not difficult to use/press and cannot be pressed easily by mistake. The camera is a little light for me as it promotes easy 'camera shake' on my light lens without IS. The battery lasts several hundred shots for me which is better than most cameras. All the controls and settings are visible in the view finder and do not get in the way of your view. You can also take pictures using the 'Live View mode' which is the 3inch LCD screen. Most DSLR cameras dont have this feature which i find quite odd since it is mostly used in point and shoot cameras. Another feature installed in this camera is the CreativeAuto mode which enables to user to control the 'bokeh', the blurred background and the brightness of the subject/background. The continuous shooting is only 3.7 frames per second. Its still pretty fast however would be nicer if it was at least 6fps which is condusive for sports photography. The AutoFocus has a 9point CMOS sensor instead of 19point sensor like the 50D and 7D. overall, this is a great entry DSLR, the best in its class for its features and for its price. This SLR camera is half the price of the 7D and the major differences is only the slower shutter spd of 1/4000 vs. 1/8000, the continuous shooting of 3.7fps vs. the 7D's 8.0fps, and the differences in the AF points. Its those 3 major differences that kept me from buying the 7D and saving the extra $900. Plus the built in flash shoot 1meter (3.2ft) farther than the 7D's built in flash, and the kit lens produces higher image quality pictures than the kit lens for the 7D.
Pros Newer updated features. See below.
Cons Higher price.
Summary Well, the new T2i has new metering, a better battery, higher megapixels, different sized LCD & improved HD video.I returned the T1i for the T2i and they added a bag, filter & battery. Great service from Future Shop, big Pro.
My question is simple, is it worth the extra $200 or so to go for it over the very good T1i?
At this point, the 2009 T1i will be on sale and will provide 95% of the camera that the T2i offers.
You tell me, which would you buy if Canon were the final choice in this category of DSLRs?
Updated on Feb 27, 2010
Firstly, the T1i battery charger was a compact unit which had no cord, this one needs a cord, Con.
The LCD is clearer and larger, a Pro.
The grip seems more comfortable in my large hands, Pro.
The software was updated, Pro.
The rear buttons are easier to utilize, larger top knob, dedicated live view button, Pro.
Limited videography as of today, but the potential is there for some impressive videos, Pro.
More capacity with the new battery and accepts newer memory cards, Pro.
Not any heavier, looks fantastic, glad I returned the T1i.
"simple the best !"on by sidvar9
Pros Excellent Image Quality
Excellent low light peformance
Amazing 1080p video clarity
18 mp give you more life like details than cameras like D90 give
Cons Battery charge gives u less shots compared to its competitors. But if u can afford an extra battery, it will not affect you.
18 MP Images take up a lot of space on your disk
Summary i researched a lot about the camera and was stuck between the D90 and the T2i. but after i chose T2i, i really think i made the right choice. Both are wonderful cameras, but the T2i is simply better with a better quality lens. both are close to each other when u use the basic kit lens, but when u upgrade it to a better lens, the D90 gets washed out. T2i gives Excellent Image Quality and Great 1080p video, which looks amazing on the big screen TV
