Review: Canon Rebel T1i

 

In both still and video modes, the Canon's colors are comic-book oversaturated, so it's a good thing the menus are easy to navigate: A deep...

Creative Auto mode provides intuitive tools for newbies. Though there’s no full autofocus for video, you can refocus manually while shooting. Offers some advanced image controls for video

Pronounced orange hue in most photos, especially indoor shots. Reds look weak. Outdoor pics usually come out overexposed. 3-inch LCD doesn’t swivel, so you have to hold the camera in front of your nose while filming

Canon EOS 500D

 

Just 14 months after the launch of the EOS Rebel XSi (450D), Canon has unveiled its latest model, the Rebel T1i (500D). It's the fifth generation of Rebel and enters the market at a difficult time - in the midst of a global economic downturn and...

Good resolution and detailed output (but only very marginally better than 450D), Decent (but not 'best in class') high ISO JPEG performance, Extended ISO speed up to 12800 (not great quality but it's there for emergencies), Good quality HD video (but...

Visibly more noise in RAW files than some of the competition, Slightly less highlight range in JPGs than the competition, Relatively limited RAW headroom, channel clipping means color accuracy can often not be maintained when recovering clipped areas...

The EOS 500D is the latest incarnation of a highly successful line of cameras and although the 'entry level' market segment is these days much more crowded than it used to be, we would be very surprised if the new model would not sell like hotcakes.

Canon EOS Rebel T1i EF-S 18-55mm IS Kit

 

Offering image quality and a robust feature set typically found in pricier prosumer-level D-SLRs, the Canon EOS Rebel T1i is a definite game-changer. For less than $1,000 ($899.99 list with an EF-S 18-to-55mm IS lens), you get a 15.1-megapixel CMOS...

Excellent value. Stellar image quality. Fast performance. HD (720p30) video capture. Big, 3-inch high-res (VGA) screen. HDMI-out

Cannot continuously focus during video recording (user must hold down a button to refocus if subjects change their distance from the camera). Autofocus mechanism is audible in video recordings. Full HD 1080 video capture looks sluggish due to its low...

The Canon EOS Rebel T1i helps redefine the D-SLR landscape by offering prosumer features, performance, and image quality for less than $1,000.

Canon EOS Rebel T1i review

 

Slipping neatly into the company's dSLR product line between the XSi and the 40D , the Canon EOS Rebel T1i (aka the 500D elsewhere in the world) pushes the XTi off the edge of the bed into discontinuity. Joined by models like the Nikon D5000 and the...

Fast performance; very nice photo quality; HD video capture.

Annoying viewfinder; video capture is its only better-than-basic feature.

A solid, slightly better-than-basic dSLR, the Canon EOS Rebel T1i delivers photo quality and performance that adequately compensates for most of its annoyances.

Canon EOS Rebel T1i / 500D

 

Introducing the 6th model in the wildly-popular Canon "Digital Rebel" DSLR line, the Canon EOS Rebel T1i / 500D. Key attributes of the T1i / 500D include small size, light weight, low price and excellent image quality

Using a 50D? Unless you need video or a smaller/lighter camera, a change to the T1i is probably not a good move for you. Ignore the slight image quality improvements in the T1i - you have a better camera for most purposes. Most 40D owners will not...

Canon EOS Rebel T1i 500D

 

Canon's original Digital Rebel 300D lit the fuse that started the sub-$1,000 digital-SLR war. With the “DRebel” now in its fifth iteration, it's hard to believe just how far this camera has come.

HD video is slightly noisy and audio is mono-only
