DCRP Review: Canon EOS Rebel T1i
4.5 Star Review  DCResource - Jul 6, 2009

The EOS Rebel T1i is a very capable digital SLR that not only takes great pictures -- it can record HD videos, as well (with limitations). Other nice features on the T1i include a 3-inch, high resolution LCD, a nice mix of automatic and manual controls, and the expandability that one would expect from a digital SLR. With tough competition, the Rebel T1i isn't leaps and bounds ahead of the competition like previous models once were. However, it remains a solid choice for those looking for a compact, fairly inexpensive digital SLR.

Canon EOS 500D Rebel T1i Review
5 Star Review  Imaging Resource - Oct 5, 2009

Canon's 15.1-megapixel Rebel T1i has most of what's great about the EOS 50D in a smaller body, making it the the most advanced Rebel to date. As consumer digital SLR camera choices go, the Canon T1i is a safe bet, with a 3-inch, high-res LCD, an optically image-stabilized zoom lens, a 3.4 frame-per-second frame rate, and built-in HD movie recording capability. The Canon T1i's still-image performance surpasses all contenders at this price point, as well as many higher-priced digital SLR cameras, with not just high resolution, but impressive high-ISO performance. For the first time, a Rebel can go above ISO 1,600, all the way up to 12,800, and the Canon T1i's image quality beats the EOS 50D at this setting, making a decent 5x7-inch print. Overall, the Canon T1i is a very well-rounded digital SLR camera, with plenty to offer amateur, intermediate, and professional photographers.

Canon Rebel T1i Digital Camera Review
5 Star Review  Digitalcamerainfo.com - May 22, 2009

Canon's Rebel T1i is the company's first sub-$1000 video SLR, with a 15-megapixel sensor, and the ability to record video at 1920x1080 resolution (though only 20 frames per second). It comes bundled with a 18-55mm, f/3.5 IS lens for $899.99, and has an impressive 920,000-dot 3-inch LCD. The T1i supports a wide range of ISO settings, from 100-12,800 including the extended range. This camera stands in direct competition with the Nikon D5000, an $850 model (with lens) that shoots 12-megapixel still images, and 1280x720 video at 24 fps. We put the T1i through our lab test regimen and came up with some rather discouraging results. While it performed well in terms of color accuracy and had a good movie mode, it struggled in other areas. The T1i's dynamic range was quite narrow, it struggled with both automatic and manual white balance, and most noticeably had very poor image sharpness. Another major problem was the lack of controls in movie mode, to the point where you can't set the aperture in video mode, which removes much of the appeal of shooting movies with an SLR.

Camera Labs – Canon EOS Rebel T1i review
4.5 Star Review  cameralabs.com - May 24, 2009

Canon’s EOS Rebel T1i is a feature-packed DSLR which boasts a wide variety of improvements over its predecessor. The semi-pro EOS 50D provides much of the inspiration with the T1i sharing the same resolution and sensitivity (albeit with a slightly different sensor), the same 3in VGA screen and an HDMI port just for starters. The T1i goes beyond the 50D though by becoming Canon’s second DSLR to offer HD video recording. The 1080p Full HD mode isn’t ideal, recording at a not-quite-smooth 20fps, but the 720p / 30fps mode has the potential to look great – so long as you workaround the issues of other DSLRs with video. So you get many of the 50D’s features in a smaller, lighter and more affordable camera with the addition of HD video. It’s a great package, but up against tough rivals in the form of Nikon’s D5000 and the Olympus E-620. Each has pros and cons, and in our full review at Cameralabs we’ve compared the features and image quality of all three, along with including several video samples you can download and view for yourself.

3.5 Star Review  cnet.com - May 1, 2009

THE GOOD: Fast performance; very nice photo quality; HD video capture. THE BAD: Annoying viewfinder; video capture is its only better-than-basic feature. THE BOTTOM LINE: 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.

Leaked accidentally on March 24th 2009, and realeased officially a day later, the EOS Digital Rebel T1 - known as the 500D everywhere else in the world - i is a digital SLR camera from Canon.

4 Star Review   By phibla on Adorama - May 14, 2012   

I bought this camera after a long spell not using an SLR (the last one I owned was a Yashica). This camera makes it easy to adapt to the different techniques related to digital as opposed to film photography. The things that are particularly useful are the big clear monitor, that makes it easy to focus in real-time mode, and change settings when using the viewfinder; the easy-to-use controls for manual changing of the aperture, shutter speed, ISO levels and focus. I can see the auto modes also being useful to someone making the transfer to an SLR for the first time which makes it a suitable camera for many kinds of photographers. My only criticism is that the body doesn't feel like it will withstand a lot of hard use. My friend has an older Rebel model which although it also has a plastic body, feels more robust. I've read that spending several hundred dollars on a camera doesn't in any way guarantee high-quality pictures, since the most important part of the equation is the lens. This 18-55mm zoom may not be the highest quality but stopped down to F8 and beyond it produces adequately sharp pictures. This camera and lens combination wouldn't satisfy a professional (maybe not even a dedicated amateur) but for someone who understands a bit of photographic theory they can be a neat creative tool, whilst at the same time someone just beginning can easily produce good pictures by using the pre-set modes.

If you know how to take a picture (because taking a picture isn't all about the camera, it's the person too) and are looking for a simple to use camera it is highly recommended.

5 Star Review   By JSM31 on Adorama - Jan 16, 2012   

This is my first DSLR. It is a great camera. i have never been able to take pictures as clear in any situation, especially of moving objects with such clarity. Great for family photos and action shots and very fast. This camera is very easy to use. I recommend getting a book (other than the owners manual) on this camera specifically which will explain when and when not to use specific functions. This has helped a great deal. I recommend Canon Rebel T1i/500D: From Snapshots to Great Shots by Jeff Revell. I will never go back to a point and shoot.

My First SLR
5 Star Review   By Sara the Newb on Adorama - May 23, 2011   

This was the first SLR I've ever bought and I love it! I read through the manual so it was super easy to use all the features. I was surprised at how much lighter it is than my friend's Nikon. I was going to buy it new because Canon's refurb warranty is only 30 or 60 days, but when I found a refurb on Adorama with their 1-year warranty I got that! I can't even tell it was a refurb! I am soooo happy with this purchase!

Love Love Love!
5 Star Review   By Aubrey's mom on Adorama - Jun 10, 2011   

I bought this camera when I got tired of my point-and-shoot missing my toddler's quick movements...so many pics lost! The HD video is amazing and doesn't take a pro to figure out. This is my first SLR and I highly recommend it for first time users. Long battery life too :)

My First SLR
5 Star Review   By Sara the Newb on Adorama - May 23, 2011   

This was the first SLR I've ever bought and I love it! I read through the manual so it was super easy to use all the features. I was surprised at how much lighter it is than my friend's Nikon. I was going to buy it new because Canon's refurb warranty is only 30 or 60 days, but when I found a refurb on Adorama with their 1-year warranty I got that! I can't even tell it was a refurb! I am soooo happy with this purchase!

Great deal!
5 Star Review   By Teebee on Adorama - Jan 14, 2011   

This newer Rebel is lighter than the original. It is similar enough to my first Rebel that I could use it immediately without reading too in-depth in the manual. It is able to write the photos on the card faster than my first Rebel. [...]

Very happy
4 Star Review   By Mr. Green Jeans on Adorama - Sep 20, 2010   

No regrets. I researched this camera for a long time before buying and it came highly recommended almost everywhere. Works very well in low light situations without a flash. That was one of my main concerns and that worry has completely gone away. I am very pleased and look forward to my skills growing into the camera. The kit lens works just fine, but I will be saving up for a good zoom lens next.

Excellent value
5 Star Review   By Island Girl on Adorama - Aug 1, 2010   

Great to be using an SLR again after using single lens digitals for several years. This provides all the creativity of 35mm but with loads of extra capability! Excellent value. Good for photo enthusiasts who want creativity and qauality. For those who start out using it in basic point and shoot mode - you'll be enticed to learn more.

5 Star Review   By crazecreekwoman on Adorama - Jul 27, 2010   

Taking photos of my 15 grandchildren and wildlife. Easy to use but still learning. I noticed that the camera doesn't show the type of picture I'm shooting, i.e. jpeg, raw, etc. Learning process is easy so far but I really want to learn more aspiring things with this camera.

Canon EOS Rebel T1i Black SLR Digital Camera Kit w/ 18-55mm Lens
5 Star Review   By member HemanthheDeva940 - Jul 15, 2010   

Strengths: great pictures

uper camera. I "downgraded," so to speak, from a Canon 20D to the Rebel T1i, and I'm overall very happy with my decision. It's lighter and smaller than my old DSLR, and has a wonderful large LCD. I occasionally shoot portraits and small projects for clients, but I didn't feel like I needed a souped up pro body and definitely didn't want to shell out the cash for one. The T1i offers enough bells and whistles for a more seasoned photographer, and I also think it would be great for a beginning shooter - very easy to control. I was most impressed with the color settings - I use the neutral setting for portraits, and I find that I barely need to adjust my images in Photoshop. I feel like I get more accurate exposure and color with the T1i than I did with my 20D. I do wish

Canon Rebel T1i Digital SLR
4 Star Review   By member lanielaine03 - Jun 29, 2010   

Strengths: good battery life, Nice features/settings, Quick Start-up time, excellent image quality, Bright LCD, easy to use

The T1i is a great upgrade from the Canon Rebel XS. It features a HD-Video functionality that works wonders when you want to capture every moment & play it back for some laughs. The screen is clear & is a good size. It's easy to adjust the settings/functions/& toggle between different modes.

5 Star Review   By Steph the Ever-Enthusiast on Adorama - May 9, 2010   

Great price for a great camera. Lens are needed for many desired photographs, but for general use, the provided lens is perfect. Great for people shots and relatively simple to use. It takes a while to figure out the best modes and settings, but the results are worth the effort and price.

Couldn't be happier with this camera
5 Star Review   By Adam S. on Adorama - Apr 20, 2010   

I bought my T1i about a month ago and I'm very happy with it. I've used it for shooting sports (baseball, marathon), a concert in a dark nightclub, and photos of my family. The T1i has performed admirably. The concert photos in particular were noted by the artist (Amanda Palmer) on her Twitter feed. I used Canon's 35mm film AE-1 SLR for over 25 years and this is my first dSLR. I've found the controls to be easy to use in full manual as well as aperture and shutter priority modes. The live view mode (shooting using the LCD panel rather than the viewfinder) was a bit tricky -- focusing is done via a button other the shutter button and is a bit slow. I've been using this less than I had expected as result. I've been using the kit 18-55mm lens, which has been more than adequate for my purposes. When I was shooting in the club and at an elementary school musical it would have been nice to have had a zoom lens with more reach. Overall, I am extremely happy with this camera.

The best photos I have ever taken
5 Star Review   By Heather on Adorama - Apr 13, 2010   

I purchased this camera because I was no longer able to capture images of my son when he became a toddler. The shutter lag on my point-and-shoot was causing too many missed moments. The Cannon Rebel EOS T1-i has been wonderful. I have taken some of the most amazing shots. To have a vision of what you want...and then actually control whether or not it turns out that way is priceless. Highly recommend this camera to novice photographers (like myself). It is fun and easy to learn. Also has a great automatic setting if you're not the daring type. You will not be disappointed.

Entry level has been redefined
4 Star Review   By Jude on Adorama - Apr 12, 2010   

If you know just enough about photography to want some options yet not enough to understand them all then this is your camera. I can use the presets as a baseline and then manually tinker with things and get an idea of what things look like with each type of adjustment. As someone that wants to be a photographer someday but doesn't want to spend a fortune to get there, this camera gives me the opportunity to learn with equipment that won't let me down.

5 Star Review   By Giuliano Raimo on Adorama - Apr 11, 2010   

I've been using this machine for about 3 weeks and I'm very satisfied with the results so far. Since I'm an enthusiast, maybe some comments could be not so interesting for all of you, but I'll try. I bought 3 more lenses beyond the 18-55mm kit. Macro 100mm f/2.8, tele 70-300mm and a Wide just for fun... For now, totally impressed with the results...

5 Star Review   By National Park Fan on Adorama - Mar 28, 2010   

No complaints - it is a great camera. The CA mode is god for those fast shots when you don't want to miss the shot but full auto won't let you get the shot you want. Take time to read the manual and get comfortable with this camnera so you can get the best from it. Sure you ca use it in full auto mode but that is a waste of a great camera

at this price you can't go wrong... but I say wait till the T2i comes out!
4 Star Review   By member danimalplanet - Mar 11, 2010   

Strengths: great LCD screen, excellent picture quality, its smaller and lighter than a full frame pro dslr, many lenses to choose from, HD video modes

Weakness: No 24fps in 1080 HD video mode. No controls for video.

had this for 1 year. For the money it's a good deal. This is a powerful DSLR with many features you will find on a much more expensive pro camera like the canon 5D. All the modes and controls you would expect from canon are available. What I don't like about it: HD video is decent in 720 but 1080 is useless with No exposure control and No 24fps. However, when the T2i comes out in a few months (with the same sensor the 7D has) it will have all the controls I complain the T1i does not. If you are in the market to buy this camera WAIT TILL THE T2i COMES OUT!!!

Impressive Camera [...]
4 Star Review   By Jess on Adorama - Mar 1, 2010   

This camera is impressive [...]The camera is exponentially better than our Canon Power Shot A570 and it can be operated by a three year old in auto mode.There are many modes and features that will keep me busy learning for quite some time. The complexity of the controls are baffling at times and is my only complaint with the camera.The T1i has more bang/$ than the Nikon D5000 and no recalls.

5 Star Review   By David on Adorama - Jan 11, 2010   

My first SLR. Already had speedlite 420. Purchased with 18-55 and 55-250 zoom and Battery Grip. The grip is great for added battery options and really enhances balance when using long lenses. Menus are easy and especially like CA mode. With battery grip, and speedlite attached it is a lot more professional looking than I am.

5 Star Review   By Vince on Adorama - Jan 11, 2010   

This is my fist SLR camera and I am nothing but impressed. I decided to go with the T1i over the Xsi because of the video option, and a few other better features. I have not regretted spending the extra money at all. This is a very solid comfortable camera that gives me a lot of room to grow into. The T1i is a great camera for someone looking to buy their first SLR. It's easy to pick up and start using right away for a newbie, but has many advanced features that experienced photographers need.

I haven't used an SLR since college (10 years ago). I bought this camera to mainly use for taking pictures of my 4 kids. It has been pretty easy to figure out. I am thrilled with it's speed, taking pictures of moving toddlers isn't always easy. It's ability inside is great and the LCD screen is great. Overall I am very happy. Adorama was wonderful to work with.

Very good product
4 Star Review   By SJ on Adorama - Jan 10, 2010   

Camera is a very good performer. Video focus could be improved through automatic process. High ISO can be noisy but it's far better than most cameras I've seen. The kit 18-55 lens is good for close up shots and some general use. It is best however for close up use. I have found that I use the 55-250 lens more for general use. A lens in between these two would be ideal. Lastly this camera is a good pick for someone transitioning from a point and shoot. It has point and shoot features along with the more compex features to fine tune your photos.

Canon Rebel T1i Digital SLR
4 Star Review   By member eskjess01 - Dec 2, 2009   

Strengths: Light and small. Lens is great for basic purposes, and is super sharp. Big LCD. Customizing functions to have more color control is very easy, and works great. Intuitive operation.

Weakness: Wish it took CF cards instead of SD cards.

Great Camera, way more then entry level
5 Star Review   By shoturtle on Adorama - Nov 8, 2009   

I was switching from SLR to DSLR. Wanted a good quality light weight compact DSLR for traveling. Looked at the Nikon D5000 and this one. They are on the high end of the "entry level DSLR" but it is more of an entry level semi pro cameras in my opinion. I like that Canon used the same sensor as the EOS 50D. A pro camera, while the Nikon uses the sensor of the a consumer product sensor of the D90. Also l Ike the fact that the body is still made in Japan as oppose to Thailand with the Nikon. This camera feels good in the hand, like my older film EOS I had. It is very ridged. The nikon just felt more like a toy compare to the T1I. It made the decision easier that all canon EOS lens fit each other. My film EOS is 12 years old, and all the glass I had worked with this camera. A really plus for any canon user thinking about upgrading, it could save you some money on glass. I had friends that had the D5000 and T1I, and the picture quality were both excellent, to say one was better then the other is splitting hairs. They both took great pictures. They both took pro quality photos. So my decision came down to non photo quality items. The AF function of both camera perform well. Did not really notice any advantage of the 11 AF point of the D5000 over the 9 of the T1I. The speed for action shots is pretty good 3.4/sec of continues shooting, the nikon was a bit faster to 4/sec. The 3" high res LCD made reviewing the shot so much easier, which made it is easy to over look the canon's lack of a swivel screen. Think that is why the D90 also has a high res fixed 3" LCD as oppose to the 2.7" swivel that the D5000 has. The screen quality is one of the biggest reason I choose the canon. I have to give the canon view finder the edge over the D5000. It seems larger. And it made shooting with glasses on easier. And I can focus the dioptric to my eye without glass also. I am not a flash user in general, the canon's 12800 ISO ability gave it a edge over the D5000's 6400. Both built in flash perform well for snap shoot shooting. The fact that the screen was left of center and the main function bottoms and nav control was on the right side made one hand operation easier while shooting. The Nikon config was not as well suited for one hand operation with the operations buttons on the left side and nav button on the right. I have a HD camcorder I travel with also, so the D5000 and the T1I HD video ability was not a factor in my decision. But I took a 1080P video with T1I, and it look fine on my Mac. The kit lens with the canon seem to be on par with the nikon, both plastic mounts. Think the nikon may have a very slight edge over the canon in this department. It seems to focus a bit quick. But I like that both were stabilized lenses. So even if I did not have canon glass already, the screen and ISO ability of the T1I gave it the nod over the D5000 for me.

Well worth the wait
5 Star Review     

Strengths: Easy to use top quality

Weakness: Video capability is lost on me

I've waited several years to jump into the digital SLR market, having to wait patiently with my point-and-shoot digital cameras until a worthy product arrived. And it has. I did not hesitate to buy the T1i as soon as I could. I use my older Canon SLR lenses with it, so I didn't have to give up that heritage. The T1i is incredibly lightweight with the kit lens. It delivers what it promises - high quality shots in any mode. My favorite mode is AV, where I can compose shots like I used to with my analog SLR, working with depth of field to enhance my subjects. Battery life is surprisingly long. Buy a good quality LCD screen protector sheet to cover the huge screen -it's impossible not to smudge up. It's been worth the wait.

Nice. Very nice.
5 Star Review   By member dotremain - May 7, 2009   

Strengths: LCD display, feel, performance, speed, low light picture quality

Weakness: size

I've only had the camera about a week, but have shot more than 2000 pictures with it - primarily of my daughter's dance performances. This camera was an upgrade from a Fuji S700. Dance performances have got to be one of the toughest shoots - low light, slow shutter speeds, subjects in constant motion, uneven lighting (spot lights, etc.). I shot over 800 pictures on a single battery charge - two nights in a row. The Sports setting gave me the best results. The continuous shooting mode was very nice - had to stop occasionally for about 30 seconds for the SD card to catch up. Feel and control are excellent. Camera is a bit large, but still fits in an expando briefcase. 3" LCD display is very nice.
