Ultra-fast processing speeds result in highly responsive camera operation and near-instant start-up times
The T1i offers some very powerful features that have been handed down from its big brothers, the Canon EOS 50D and EOS 5D Mark II. This camera possesses a high degree of appeal with loads of exposure options, and class leading ISO capabilities, performance, and image quality.
very compact camera
The EOS Rebel T1i is Canon's best Rebel yet. If you need a faster burst rate, or don't like the Rebel's button-centered interface, or the camera is too small for your hands, then you'll also want to look at the EOS 50D, the next camera up in Canon's line. (Note that you won't get video shooting with that camera.) If you're looking for an SLR under $1,000 that takes great images and movies, then the Rebel T1i is an excellent choice.
high definition video
The problem companies like Canon face is offering DSLRs with Full HD video, which at the same time, donâ?? t harm its sales of camcorder products or more expensive DSLR offerings like the EOS 5D Mark II, which has Full HD at 30fps. Itâ?? s a hard balance to get right and, in its attempts to achieve it, it appears that Canon has compromised the video performance a little too much on the EOD 500D.
pretty impressive "entry level" camera
The new Canon Speedlite 270EX, the successor to the 220EX Speedlite model, is a compact, lightweight external flash option for Canon cameras including select Canon PowerShot models. Ideal for use with the new EOS Rebel T1i, the new Speedlite 270EX uses only two AA batteries and enables bounce flash shooting with four position steps from 0 degrees to 90 degrees.
JPEG compression setting (normal to superfine, which is appreciably lossless), face detection, and a wide range of selectable resolutions, including matted widescreen modes
Ignoring the existence of the PowerShot A590 IS, the Canon PowerShot A580 would be a great point-and-shoot for the money. Unfortunately, for our recommendation, the A590 IS does exist, it offers optical image-stabilization and possibly superior focus-consistency, and it retails for a trifling $30 more. If you're in the market for a Canon PowerShot at this price-point, we suggest collecting your loose change and going for the A590 IS instead. Release: March 2008. Price: $140.
