DCRP Review: Canon EOS Rebel T2i
4.5 Star Review  DCResource - Apr 16, 2010

This 18 Megapixel camera features excellent photo quality (even at high ISOs), a compact, well-designed body, a gorgeous 3-inch LCD display, snappy performance, and a Full HD movie mode. There aren't many downsides: Images are on the soft side, especially if you're using an inexpensive lens. Redeye is a problem, and there's no tool to remove it in playback mode. The continuous shooting mode could be better and, like other D-SLRs, contrast detect autofocus in live view mode is sluggish.

Canon Rebel T2i / EOS 550D Review
5 Star Review  Imaging Resource - Jul 2, 2010

Canon ignored the rest of the digital camera industry when they limited resolution over the last few years, putting an 18-megapixel sensor in their consumer flagship Rebel T2i, and as a result the camera stands head and shoulders above any other offering under $1,000. Where you'd expect more noise from this 18-megapixel digital camera, the Canon T2i actually delivers less than its predecessor, while increasing the quality of detail at all ISO settings. Also upgraded on the Canon T2i is 1080p video at 24, 25, and 30fps, and video editing tools are built right into the camera. Still shooting mode also gets a frame-rate increase to 3.7 frames per second, up just a tad from 3.4 fps. Both still and video quality from the Canon T2i are very impressive. Check out our comprehensive review of the Canon Rebel T2i.

Canon EOS Rebel T2i review at Camera Labs
4.5 Star Review  cameralabs.com - Apr 23, 2010

Canon's EOS Rebel T2i is a very impressive DSLR which redefines what we can expect from the upper entry-level category. Just five months on from the high-end EOS 7D, the Rebel T2i delivers essentially the same image quality and flexible movie modes at half the price. But while the resolution and video capabilities are undoubtedly impressive, the camera's stood still in other respects which could frustrate certain photographers. Crucially these are areas which other manufacturers have addressed in a number of recent alternatives. In our full review at Camera Labs we've taken a detailed look at the image quality, video capabilities and overall handling of the T2i, along with how it compares to key rivals and in what areas they may prove to be a better choice. We also have a 20 minute High Definition video demonstration of the T2i's key features in action, helping you to decide which model will be best for your requirements.

Canon EOS Rebel T2i (with 18-55mm lens)
3.5 Star Review  cnet.com - Apr 12, 2010

THE GOOD: Fast performance; excellent photo quality; above average video-capture quality. THE BAD: Annoying viewfinder; irritating control layout for video capture. THE BOTTOM LINE: 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 Rebel T2i (EOS 550D)
4.5 Star Review  productwiki.com - Feb 10, 2010

The Rebel T2i EOS 550D is Cannons top-of-the-line consumer digital SLR camera. The Rebel T2i can shoot up to 18 megapixel resolution photos and features an ISO range of 100-6400. The camera can also shoot either 720p or 1080p high definition video. The Rebel T2i features 3.7fps continuous still shooting mode, a 63-zone Dual Layer Metering System, and canons Digic 4 image processor. The camera will record video in full 1920 X 1080p HD resolution by default, allowing the user to select the frame rate from 30, 25, and 24fps as well as offering 720p video at 60 and 50fps. A 3.5mm stereo microphone socket has been included to allow the use of an external microphone while recording video. Users can take manual control of exposure settings changing depthof field and degree of motion blur. The Rebel T2i sports a three inch 3:2 Clear View LCD screen and is Eye-Fi compatible ... PROS: (1) 3.7fps continuous shooting - improved over the previous T1is 3.4fps (2) full 1080p video recording (3) compact and lightweight compared to higher end professional dSLRs (4) capable of recording 720p at 60fps (for smooth slow motion) (5) external stereo microphone jack for improved audio during video recording ... CONS: (1) fixed (non-articulating) display (2) due to larger image size and faster fps, continuous shooting depth has been reduced to 6 RAW / 34 JPEG compared to the T1is 9 RAW / 170 JPEG

4 Star Review   By RobB on Adorama - May 25, 2012   

This is a great starter DSLR. I'm not overly impressed with the performance of the kit lenses in low light situations but that doesn't have much to do with the camera itself. Menu system is very easy to navigate. Manually setting up shots is very quick and easy.

Excellent choice for a DSLR camera
5 Star Review   By LarryMc on Adorama - May 7, 2012   

I Selected the Canon T2i after many hours comparing other models and brands. The Canon name is a frontrunner in camera quality and performance. With the availability of the T3i, current pricing of the T2i makes it an excellent choice for budget-minded dslr camera buyers. Highly recommend this model for amateur photographers and photography students.

Great value camera.
5 Star Review   By Corpulence Personified on Adorama - May 7, 2012   

Canon really nailed their design philosophy with the T2i. This easy-to-use camera would be perfect for any beginner, but unlike the previous Rebel entry-level cameras, it goes beyond that. This is a Real Camera. Compared with other entry-levels, the body feels much stronger and the interface feels noticeably more logical. The image quality is unimpeachable, and the LCD is so good, you'll be fooled into thinking that you're a better photographer than you are. Penny for penny, this camera is a significantly better value than the T3i, let alone the 60D. Unless you absolutely, positively, specifically need a feature from one of those cameras, I'd say to go for the T2i and to spend the excess money on lenses.

Excellent for all levels of photographer
5 Star Review   By Tom on Adorama - May 7, 2012   

I first used a SLR in high school. It was a very basic manual film camera. I enjoyed learning about why a SLR is superior to a PAS, and found out how much I liked photography. I used some of my skills later in the fire service taking pictures at fire scenes. I used a SLR, but mostly on full auto. Recently, I got back in to photography due to a friend who is heavily in to it. He recommended the T2i, as he owned one previously. Right out of the box, I was taking excellent photos. I either forgot or never learned about things like DOF, white balance, filter use, and many other joys of SLR use. I was learning DOF and playing with my settings, and the very first portrait I took was outstanding. Since then, I learn, or re-learn new things daily. This camera has been excellent every step of the way. The camera is easy to use and has brought the joy and fun of photography back to me. I frequently play with my friend's 5D and 7D, and I can say that the T2i does every bit as well as the more "pro" cameras. This camera has features that are well up in to the "pro" arena as well. You simply can't go wrong with a Canon, and you can't go wrong with the T2i.

5 Star Review   By Chicks n' Goats on Adorama - Apr 30, 2012   

Soccer season is in full force so this is where I have been trying out my new camera. I love it. I'm getting so great shots. Shutter speed seems to be slower than my old film ME super Pentax with a winder but that could be because I'm still working on the right settings. I fooled around with some macro shots and really like this camera for this application. I can't believe how light weight it is for the size. I miss the swivel LCD that my Canon G-5 Powershot had but I can do so much more with this camera. I am so glad I spent the money and couldn't be happier with the price and quality. The package I got was a super deal!

Great Entry-Level DSLR!
5 Star Review   By Greg on Adorama - Apr 25, 2012   

I was searching for a long-overdue replacement digital camera and wanted to step up to a DSLR. I narrowed down my choices to the T2i, T3, and T3i. I ultimately opted for the T2i because the T3 didn't feel as durable and was mostly made of plastic and with the T3i, I didn't see much of a difference besides the swivel LCD (which I can live without). So far I have been extremely satisfied with the camera. Images are nice and sharp, there are plenty of options and shooting modes available to compose your picture (or video), and the size isn't too bad either. The only negative I would cite is sometimes when shooting pictures and looking through the viewfinder your nose may touch the LCD and create a smudge so investing in an LCD protector can help.

5 Star Review   By Stanimal on Adorama - Mar 12, 2012   

As an avid photo enthusiast I use my Canon T2i from Adorama nearly everyday. I enjoy creating visual art by capturing images of landscapes, wildlife, sports activities, and family events. I also have found my Canon T2i to be perfect for illustrating model rocketry building techniques and pictures of my Gourd art. The T2i offers me plenty of control over shutter speed, lens aperature, and light adjustment. I don't foresee that I will outgrow the capabilities of the Canon T2i for many years to come.

5 Star Review   By Pixie on Adorama - Feb 20, 2012   

I am an artist and use most of my photos to paint flowers or birds. The sport feature is great for capturing birds in flight, as well as my niece's swim meet. I also used this feature to capture great images of ice skaters. The manual feature is really fun to use as well. I have used this feature to play with the lighting and enhance the portion of the image I wanted to feature. I love this camera!

Perfect compact DSLR
4 Star Review   By Omarlyn on Adorama - Jan 23, 2012   

This is a great DSLR for both amateurs & pros alike. Amateurs have more than enough tools in a light/compact body that is still easy to use for beginners. Pro's will appreciate this as a light weight compact alternative for travel and other non-critical use but still have the benefit of some advanced features. The kit lens is SURPRISINGLY sharp!

5 Star Review   By Jai on Adorama - Jan 9, 2012   

I had always wanted to get a Nikon DSLR. But ended up buying Canon T2i because of the deal i got from Adorama. For the price it is the best DSLR camera. Very happy with the camera. Tried using a friend's' Nikon D5100 for sometime. I am convinced i dint miss anything big. :)

EOST2i Review
4 Star Review   By photophan on Adorama - Jan 2, 2012   

Amazing camera performance. Professionals may not like the camera for its plastic body but its not cheaply made and the thick plastic also helps keep the weight down. Auto-focus is pretty fast except in low light but I like Canon's idea that it pops the flash up and rapidly triggers the flash to provide enough light to auto-focus. Overall a wonderful camera that lives up very well to the Canon name.

Very good prosumer product
4 Star Review   By JADO on Adorama - Jan 2, 2012   

This was a gift for my 8 yr old son. I wanted a DLSR and an low level entry camera didn't make sense. THe kit lens was specifically chosen for IS and light weight and you get what you pay for. Overall I'm glad I purchased the camera, the auto-ISO adjustments have provided good images even at 3200. It has been easy to use and I have been able to teach my son manual about the manual and automatic modes. Canon colors and performance are very good as always. I have not tried the camera with high end lenses. The only small item is poor auto focus at very low light but that can be attributed to the lens as much as anything else.

I wanted to buy this camera since long time, but couldn't buy due to personal reasons. This is a dream come true for me. Had a good feeling for the first time when I held it in my hand. I don't have technical knowledge of what is good and what is not, but the photos I captured gives a new dimension of photo shoots for me. I want to keep learning and explore the photographic world for the rest of the life with this camera

Pop up flash has limited range. A good additional flash is a good idea. Lense is very versetal. A telaphoto lense Can be very usefull and fun. Camera is very easy to use on auto. You can get very complicated if you are up to it. software is easy to use you can do a lot with your pictures on the computer.

Excellent camera, Great quality!
5 Star Review   By BeccaBell on Adorama - Dec 12, 2011   

I began photography with the Canon Rebel XS and just upgraded to this Canon T2i. The difference is outstanding!...and I loved my XS so it's saying a lot. Images are incredibly sharp and crisp. Low light photography comes out beautifully. The LCD screen is large and clear and easy to understand. The functionality is user-friendly. The only thing is that the video is tricky to focus while shooting but I don't even use that feature much. For photography, this camera is amazing!

Still a great value for film-look video
4 Star Review   By MCPhoto on Adorama - Dec 5, 2011   

With DSLR video taking the world by storm - and even making inroads to big-league TV and feature shoots - the T2i remains an outstanding value to get your foot in that door. Like any DSLR rig, some sort of loupe is absolutely necessary (and makes the D60's articulating screen somewhat over rated) - as is at least one decent wide prime (a 28mm 2.8 is recommended as the small-sensor crop makes it about a 50mm equivalent. But with a cheap lens adapter, you can stick just about any Nikkor from the last 40 years or so on a Canon and have a great range of focal lengths with pro glass quality). If you're a Nikon shooter it's a great way to go - but Nikon fans will need some adjustment to use Canon's interface which isn't nearly as intuitive as Nikon. The kit lens is OK with this thing, but for still images you'll want to upgrade your glass. Stills are superb with a good lens, but I bought this strictly for video. Canon's video codec has its limitations (moire being the worst) which is written up in great detail throughout the web. But the cost of entry to DSLR video is very low with this body, and it gives a heck of a pro look in the right hands.

My First DSLR and I love it
5 Star Review   By Redshift on Adorama - Oct 10, 2011   

I am a beginner in the DSLR field, and I have found this camera to be extremely accessible and pretty easy to use and figure out. I am still learning about the different settings and ways to shoot a picture, but I can tell that I'll be able to do everything that I want with this camera. I love the bright display and the picture quality. The menus are clear and easy to use and maneuver around. I love the weight and body of the camera. One thing that isn't so great is when switching from a picture to a video, there is a lot of movement required on the settings wheel - it only turns one way, so that makes it a little difficult to get to a different setting quickly. Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Extreme Quality for the Reasonable Price
5 Star Review   By Dmenchia on Adorama - Sep 16, 2011   

+: I really feel that not only the picture quality is amazing at 18 MP, but the video quality surpasses most other models. Being able to shoot 1080i and 720p while being a picture taking camera is great, and the lens gives great depth of field and shallow focus. -: I am just not satisfied with the focus adjustments on the lens, I think they could have been in better locations. The fine adjustment is too far up and it affects my video whenever I shoot.

I originally used this camera to capture great action shots of my kids in Hockey. One thing soon led to another and the camera has been versatile enough to grow with my skill. I love the easy to learn on aspect, and the wide variety of lenses in all price ranges. Specifically used for sports, weddings, portrait, nature and abstract photography.

Great Investment
5 Star Review   By Hansel on Adorama - Sep 7, 2011   

I got this product and was immediately impressed. While this was one of the top cameras when I received it, it still competes with the higher level dslr's. I have not found any real cons with this camera. Depending on the type of photography you are doing it is a great investment to buy lens and an external flash.there are times when the flash is obstructed by a long lens, but that trends to happen with every built in flash.

Excellent value for the money
4 Star Review   By Elbe on Adorama - Sep 4, 2011   

This Canon 550D is my travel camera. I combined this smallest and lightest Canon DSLR with a Tamron 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II PZD Zoom lens and can get a good coverage for my travel images without having to carry extra lenses. On the low side: I wish the camera would have better weather seals and less noise at higher ISO. Wish list: If they could fit a second image processor into it for higher continuous shooting rate and automatic correction of lens distortions.

Best Investment of the Year
5 Star Review   By PSU Willehhh!!! on Adorama - May 23, 2011   

Bought this kit from [...] several days before a 3 week trip to New Zealand -- best decision I made other than to take that trip!I love this camera's plethora of settings available on the top control dial: "No Flash" is my default setting, as I prefer the less-obtrusive shooting and longer battery life. Other settings work well, too. I worked occasionally with Nikon D80s and D90s, so I missed the dual jog dials, but the Canon layout and quirks were easy to warm up to. I used a friend's Canon 40D for several minutes, but in terms of heft I preferred the "inferior" plastic of the T2i to the heavier magnesium body of the 40D. It's such a small and lightweight camera that doesn't weigh on me over the course of the day and helps me remain inconspicuous! I'm glad I purchased the 18-55mm kit lens for the trip. If I'd have purchased the 18-135mm lens, I wouldn't immediately want for a better lens. The 18-55 was a great deal and it allowed me to refine my skills and realize the limitations of that medium-quality lens.I recently hooked up the Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 lens with it for taking lower-light pictures at indoor livestock shows. After correcting the lens's focusing problems manually (and learning to deal with a lens that is heavier than the camera body), it showed the camera's versatility. I plan to purchase a fast wider-angle lens (10-24mm or something similar) for it and perhaps a fast 50mm prime. Even further down the road, I may purchase a fast medium lens to replace the 18-55 (while retaining it for light and portable situations). By that time, I may replace the aging T2i with the 7D's successor!I purchased the T2i in hopes that I wouldn't need to buy a video camera for that trip, but I ended up buying one anyway. I'm glad I bought my Sony HD Handycam, even though it was 2 years old and the same price as my T2i -- the Canon is for videography. It's not a camera to put on a tripod and leave in the back of the auditorium during a high school chorus concert; it begs for you to channel your inner Martin Scorsese! Yes, its younger sibling the T3i has improved upon the video experience, but 1.5 years after its introduction, the T2i holds up well.My biggest gripe is with its autofocus system while using the LiveView function for either taking still pictures or video -- it takes ages to get an accurate lock! The camera also tends to overexpose, but editing software and camera controls bring that tendency in check.I've had it just over a year, and I'm closing in on 19,000 pictures. I love it. I'm surprised at how many Rebels (often the T1, T2, or T3is) I see at major public gatherings, casually slung over the shoulders of casual shooters -- smart shooters. It's like a muscle car, taking the 7D's components and stuffing the essentials in a much smaller body!Unless you really need the added video, don't spring for the T3i. But unless you're on a budget, avoid the T1i and splurge. Almost 1.5 years after its introduction, the lightweight low-light, video-shooting All-Star is the best bet for anyone who is getting into or back into photography or who doesn't need the frills of its bigger brother, the 7D. Buy it. You won't regret it.

Delightful Camera
5 Star Review   By member bandgsmith - Apr 8, 2011   

Strengths: Clarity, dynamic range, ease of use.

Weakness: None that I can find

I am a landscape photographer who uses a tripod and I use the manual features more than auto focus or auto stabilization. I shoot raw using the automatic three shot exposure bracketing feature and I use the outputs for Photoshop CS5 High Dynamic Range (HDR) processing.I use the two second delay for tripod stabilization. Using the camera in this way plus Photoshop is an absolute joy to me. My previous camera, an Olympus, was pretty good as a point and shoot but I found the manual features including zoom very exasperating.

So Far So Good
5 Star Review   By Photogenic on Adorama - Mar 8, 2011   

I am starting a photography business and origonally wanted the Canon D40. While searching, another photographer recommended the T2i. At first I was hesitant with the economy being what it is and trying to start a business, I didnt want a second rate camera. Talk about putting both feet in my mouth, I love this camera, it gets shots that normally I would miss and the quality of print is great. I did my first photo shoot for free, trying to get the exposure and experience; the camera was light, easy to handle, controls handy, the pics came out so good, the lady paid me for them.

4 Star Review   By camerawench on Adorama - Jan 24, 2011   

I am relatively new to DSLR photography and have found this camera easy to use. I am still learning to use the different settings on the camera. I have discovered already however that the lens that comes with the camera is too mid-range for what I need. Already looking at purchasing macro and telescopic lenses. Would have been good if the camera came with a lens package. I do love this camera though and am pleased with my purchase.

Since retiring my A1, I find I am enjoying taking digital pics with the T2i. It is light weight and very versatile with the lenses available from Canon. First set of vacation pics turned out fabulous. Even my wife likes the new Rebel in full auto mode, she did not like my A1. I actually had fun learning my new T2i as well as taking some really nice photos.

Great camera for price; semi-pro quality
5 Star Review   By Matt on Adorama - Jan 13, 2011   

Great camera for the price. Its performance and image quality, and ergonomics is right at where the price is: beneath pro-grade, but fantastic for just getting serious to semi-pro photographers. ISO noise gets rough around 6400, slightly in 3200. Video is great but it eats through the battery quickly. Get multiple batteries and at least 16 GB card with it if you do video. Also I regret getting the kit lens with it, although the IS is remarkable. I should have gotten a 30mm to fit the crop-sensor on it to be around a normal 50mm on a full frame sensor and also for better low light/indoor photos. Easy to use features and grip. Feels too light, but many of my complaints are small preferences that aren't significant.

Easy on the eyes
5 Star Review   By Traveling Teacher on Adorama - Sep 20, 2010   

One reason I purchase this camera was that the T2i was top rated by Consumer Reports. I especially loved the feature in which you can change how the menu displays. I set it for a black background with yellow letters. It was so much easier to see than my previous Canon Rebel 300D. The 3 inch display was also appreciated. I took some family photos and immediately noticed that the pictures were sharper & had a better exposure. I can't wait to try all the new features.

Small package that packs a punch!
5 Star Review   By Per the Photographer on Adorama - Aug 23, 2010   

I got my T2i a couple weeks ago and haven't put it down ever since. I am a casual photographer, so I don't spend a lot of time playing around in the camera scene. In addition, I am new to the DSLR world. I trusted my purchase in Canon's great reputation (in addition to owning an older film Rebel which I love) and decided on this camera. The controls were very easy to figure out even for a newbie like me. The camera's processor allows for fast write speeds onto my high speed memory card, allowing me to take shots much faster than I have been able to with my past cameras. I can't say enough for the photo quality, but I have a feeling that's true for any DSLR. The only problem I foresee with this particular model is it's size. I have small hands so this camera fits me perfectly, but I can see somebody with average/large hands having a hard time holding it. I would recommend getting your hands on one first before buying.

A pro's camera in a deceiving baby case
5 Star Review   By EG on Adorama - Jul 28, 2010   

After hearing NOTHING but raving reviews for this camera, from all over the world, I got it and can tell first hand this is a no-brainer purchase. I had a Sony alpha as my entry lever DSLR and I thought that was just fine for my needs. Boy was I wrong. Every picture with the T2i is crystal clear, easy to operate, great manual, clear menus, very intuitive. I hear though it requires very good lenses to match its inherent excellent quality. I got it with the kit lens+telephoto

Nice Upgrade
4 Star Review   By Chris_crssd on Adorama - Jul 1, 2010   

I upgraded to this camera from an XTi. I have to say I am very happy with it. I just got back from trip with it. I took in 2 days of baseball. They wouldnt let me in with my telephoto, but with 24-105mm at night, I was able to take tack sharp photos of entire field and from right field bleachers to left field bleachers. The image quality is great. I experimented with all the settings, Program, Aperature, shutter priority etc, and they all produced nice colors. I shot close to 400 or so photos and several videos on both days with IS on, and the battery still showed full. The LCD screen is great. Very clear, and I am able to check quality of images ALOT better than I was able to with the XTi. I spent a few nights at beach after sunset, and the low light ability of the camera is very good also. Noise level is very acceptable.Shooting video will take some getting used to but the quality is amazing. Even at lowest quality setting, video is clear and even in low light. Though the built-in microphone picks up ALL the noise of the camera AF etc. I shoot alot of HDR stuff, and with the class 10 cards i bought, the write speed in RAW+jpeg is very fast,no lag time. I have ONE complaint for the camera, and for some it might be a major issue. The camera has a new RAW data code which NONE of my software can read. I use Photoshop CS3. As of right now, I think that only CS5 can read them. Only other choice is to use Adobe DNG converter, which is free, but might degrade the megapixels. Hopefully, an update will come along for those who cant afford to go to CS5. All in all, I'm very happy with camera so far. The image quality, ISO performance, and the excellent video make this a great all around camera.

5 Star Review   By Mark on Adorama - May 7, 2010   

Very nice! I'm a Nikon shooter however I love Canon video. Nice price point and much more affortable than the 5d or 7d with the same video capabilities. Will be shooting a lot of video on my new Canon.

Fantastic upgrade to older Rebel
5 Star Review   By Glenn on Adorama - May 7, 2010   

Bought an XT in 2004, and XTi in 2006, and now the T2i in 2010. Wasn't sure that I really wanted to upgrade. I mean, what's really the difference between 10MP and 18MP, right? And who cares that it shoots video?!? Seemed kind of gimmicky, and I already have a standard resolution video camera using miniDV tapes, also bought in 2006. I figured it would be just dropping ca. [$] to say I had the latest tech.Well, I was WRONG! The T2i is outstanding and awe-inspiring. The upgrade from the XTi is well worth it. I really can't say enough good things about the image and video quality. You really just have to see it to believe it. And I don't feel the need anymore to offload the pics to get a good view of them since the LCD is so big and bright. I don't mind storing them on the camera until needed for other purposes, carrying it around and showing off my beautiful pics and videos to everyone. Two 16GB SDHC cards are plenty of storage.I really like the new 63-zone metering system inherited from the 7D. It's really hard to take a poorly exposed shot anymore, but I'll keep trying because it's so much fun! Autofocus works fantastic, too. Of course, composing a shot is and has always been up to the photographer. Don't look to any camera to do that for you.Before buying, I saw some negative reviews regarding build/size and video. Let me just say that, although I've never used a metal-bodied camera like the 7D, I have nothing to complain about regarding the build or the size of the T2i. The camera is plenty rugged enough outside of taking it on a safari or through the everglades (although I don't why it wouldn't withstand that with enough protection), and it's plenty big enough even for my largish man-hands. I do have a battery grip on order, more for having two batteries on-board with extended battery life than for the size bonus.Finally, regarding the video: good-bye old video camera. I've seen reviews questioning why you'd want to have video capability in your SLR, whether you'd really use it, and how ineffective they are because you have to accessorize them so heavily to get quality results. All of these evaluations are irrelevant to a NON-PROFESSIONAL film-maker. The T2i is a perfectly exceptional and convenient replacement for any dedicated video camera, and the video quality is superb--better than my dad's new dedicated SONY HD handi-cam that cost approximately the same as my T2i. It is perfect for family & vacation movies and anything else the non-professional would do with it. And, as has been shown by the number of professionals adopting them, DSLRs are quite capable even for professionals with the proper outfit.I will also say that focusing with video isn't the bear that I've read about or expected. The camera will autofocus for you both before you press the RECORD button, as well as during the filming, if you so desire. Some might say it's slow, but it's no slower than any of the handi-cams I've ever used. Again, this is something that is only relevant to a professional user. There's always manual focusing, too, which isn't hard--no loupe needed. Of course I grew up with a manual-focused 35mm camera. We didn't have autofocus back then (that anyone could afford or that worked well), and ETTL had just come into wide-spread useage.I really can't say enough good things about this T2i. I don't regret the purchase at all. It's a very worthy upgrade, certainly from any point-and-shoot, definitely from XTi/XS/XSi, and probably also from the T1i. Very enjoyable camera that makes you run around taking pictures of EVERYTHING once again. That alone is worth the money!

Great Camera
5 Star Review   By Lost Too on Adorama - Apr 16, 2010   

Great Camera. Just bought it and brought it on vacation and got some great pics. Very sharp with the kit lens. Only con is that the video use is not that intuative. I am still learning but very impressed.

Great Camera, why did I wait so long?
5 Star Review   By jlcs2k on Adorama - Apr 14, 2010   

I use this for work and personal use. This replaces my Canon EOS Digital Rebel / EOS 300D, the original digital Rebel that was over 8 years old. It finally gave up the ghost. There's no comparison!

Very impressed
5 Star Review   By Jeff on Adorama - Mar 23, 2010   

I initially wanted to purchase a T1i, but after seeing the T2i and the video capabilities, I was sold on it. This is my first DSLR, I was tired of the image quality that I was getting with my (non-Canon) point and shoot. For a beginner in the SLR world, this camera seems to be arranged (controls, menus etc) in a way that is easy to navigate. Someone with more experience may have a different opinion on that aspect of the camera. My son is involved in martial arts and having the HD video option was the main selling point, besides the great still pictures it takes. Being able to capture fast movements and having the ability to slow that footage down and still have a clear video is important to me. I have not had an opportunity to do that yet, but I believe this camera will support that need very easily. I have taken about 100 still photos, every one has come out nicely, even the ones I was experimenting with.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED AND 18M.P. TOO!
5 Star Review   By Robert on Adorama - Mar 17, 2010   

Bought this camera from Adorama and received it last week. It's really a beautiful camera and a delight to use. I have the kit lens and the Tamron 70-300 lens. Both perform well and look good on the camera. It's a step up from my XSi that I had been using. It has video(which I do not use) and a tack sharp 3 inch LCD screen. Because it's smallish, I prefer to shoot with the acc. bat. pack. The pack gives you a more secure hold on the camera and you are less likely to drop it. I wish Canon would put a more pebbeled grip on it. All my photos taken so far with this camera have come out perfectly exposed, even indoors using 6400 iso. The camera is a little jewel and I love using it.
