Canon EOS Rebel T2i

 

It's tempting to refer to Canon's T2i--a digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) model--as an evolutionary upgrade from its predecessor, last year's Canon EOS Rebel T1i. That is, until you review the new camera's pictures and video on your computer screen....

LCD with high resolution and new 3:2 dimension ; Excellent software for both Mac and Windows ; Improved video mode with external mic capability ; Higher resolution than previous Rebel cameras ; Higher-quality images and video than older Rebels ; Snappy...

Light plastic feel ; Expensive for entry-level camera kit

Canon's incremental refinements to this Rebel add up to both improved image quality and movie recording that is a notable step forward.

Review: Canon Rebel T2i

 

Canon's entry-level Rebel has more megapixels, better noise reduction and full HD video.

Image-stabilized kit lens. Three-inch 3:2 aspect ratio LCD with a slightly greater viewing angle than the old version. Dedicated Live View/Movie Record button. Quick Control Screen. External microphone jack. Quicktime H.264 video format. SD memory-card...

Lack of quick control wheel (you have to get Canon’s 7D or a higher model to have one). Bothersome autofocus assist flash. Build quality not as robust as feature set

Canon EOS Rebel T2i review

 

Instead of replacing its tired, old XS and XSi models to compete with younger, sprier sub-$700 models from Nikon, Sony, and Pentax in that extremely popular price segment, Canon chose to release an update to its more expensive T1i in the less...

Fast performance; excellent photo quality; above average video-capture quality.

Annoying viewfinder; irritating control layout for video capture.

A great follow-up to the T1i, if you want the best photo and video quality in a dSLR for less than $1,000, the Canon EOS Rebel T2i is hard to beat.

Canon EOS 550D / Rebel T2i Review

 

The Canon EOS 550D is a difficult product to categorize. Ostensibly designed to appeal to first-time DSLR buyers and enthusiasts, it offers a lot more technology, and at a higher price, than we might expect for a camera aimed squarely at this sector....

Excellent detail and resolution (especially in raw mode) ; Lovely new LCD screen - the 3:2 format really makes a difference ; Capable, flexible AF system in both phase-detection and live view modes ; High-spec video mode, including external microphone...

Auto Lighting Optimizer's effect is subtle to the point of being unnoticeable ; No rear control dial (as found on higher-end Canon bodies) ; Entry-level ergonomics won't suit everyone (the EOS 50D and 7D just feel nicer) ; No in-camera raw conversion...

All in all, the EOS 550D is the most compelling DSLR of its class that we've ever tested. It is hard to imagine how much more we might realistically expect from a product of this type, and although the improvements that Canon has made over the EOS 500D...

Canon EOS Rebel T2i

 

Canon has done it again. Last year the Canon EOS Rebel T1i ($899.99, ) along with the Nikon D5000 ($729.95, ) led the D-SLR revolution by being the first sub-$1,000 models to offer high-definition video. Capture is limited to 720p, but both cameras are...

Top-notch images. 18-MP resolution. Low noise levels through ISO 3200. Largest and sharpest LCD available on a D-SLR. Multiple HD video-capture modes. Manual exposure control available during video capture. Compatible with SDXC memory cards. HDMI-CEC...

Video recording is not as intuitive as with a dedicated camcorder. Frames-per-second capture is slower than the competition.

The Canon EOS Rebel T2i pumps out beautiful pictures and boasts full-featured 1080p video recording options that were previously only available with D-SLRs twice its price.

Canon Rebel T2i DSLR Camera Review

 

The Canon Rebel T2i succeeds in delivering high-quality video performance with a fairly simple video mode interface. The camera wasn't quite as strong in our testing as it's more expensive cousin—the Canon 7D—but it definitely represents a strong...

Canon EOS 550D Review

 

Announced at the beginning of February, the 18-megapixel Canon EOS 550D (marketed as the EOS Rebel T2i in North America) is the successor to last year's 15-megapixel 500D / T1i. Putting aside the increase in pixel count, the 550D / T2i offers a...

The Canon EOS 550D / Rebel T2i is a solid mid-range camera whose main virtue is that it allows you to capture incredibly detailed photos without ever getting in the way or spoiling the fun of picture taking. Surely enough, it doesn't have the robust...
