5 out of 5 eggsExcellent camera!

Pros: As a beginner photographer I used this camera first for newspaper/yearbook type work but eventually started bringing it to other things like airshows and sporting events, and had some amazing results. Still do, 3 years later. Maintains itself well, no issues.

Cons: Price, as always.

Other Thoughts: Coupled with telephoto and wide angle, both from newegg.

4 out of 5 eggsfirst dslr

Pros: Heavy, I consider this a pro because I do not have a steady hand. Battery life is excellent, way better than any point and shoot i`ve used. Much wider range of settings than a point and shoot (12800 ISO, f22@18mm, 1/4000-bulb shutter speed and a whole bunch of others things I don`t fully understand). Can take pretty good night shots if you know how to use the settings. If you have fast memory it can take pictures very quickly. Many video quality settings 1080p@24 or 30 fps 720@60 fps. Movies are very clear.

Cons: No artificial panorama (maybe that's the case with all dslrs?). Once it messed up the file naming convention ("_MG..." instead of "IMG..."). Movie files are huge and my laptop and tablet can't handle playing them.

Other Thoughts: Bought an 18-200mm lense from elsewhere it was nice range but the lense had no image stabilization. I highly recommend getting a lense that does.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing camera

Pros: 4.5/5.

Canon did a fantastic job of packaging the "right" features at this pricepoint, including the image quality of its big brother 7D, and some great video recording functions. If you can live with the relatively slow FPS, smaller viewfinder, and somewhat plasticy body, this is a fantastic camera at a fantastic price.

Cons: the other .5 points could have been earned with a little beefier build. While the camera doesn't feel cheap, it doesn't feel very solid either, and at least on mine the back rubber grip has some body flex under it.

Other Thoughts: This is the best DSLR in the sub 1000 dollar price range. If you have a little more to spend, I recommend looking at Nikkon's D7000. If you want to spend a little less then try and score a used 50D for under $600. The 50D doesn't sport alot of the same features as the T2i, but it has some others that I would prefer, such faster FPS and a better viewfinder.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very comfortable feel, location of buttons and dial are excellent for ease and quick change when in manual mode. I now use it for everything I'm doing.

Cons: None other than weight, specially when adding on a lens bigger than 200mm.

5 out of 5 eggsGood buy

Pros: Knowing very little about DSLR cameras, I read a half dozen reviews and made the decision based on that it was very well reviewed and considered the most bang for the buck for a model under a thousand dollars. I am sure there are more competent people who'll laud their specific brand, but the choice between the major ones was the megapixel being larger than others for the price along with the video capabilities.

Cons: Yet to be determined.

Other Thoughts: I bought it as body only as I had an entry level camera from an older canon. Which did add bias to my decision, but not a lot.

I recently took this on my first trip, with an updated lens, and am thrilled about the pictures.

4 out of 5 eggsImpressive

Pros: As a camera, this is hard to beat at the price. It is easy to use, flexible, fast, and small. The auto white balance works great compared to my Xsi. Stunning video resolution and great sound with off-camera mic.

Cons: I upgraded for the video mode, but the autofocus is too unreliable for this to be a video camera replacement. It searches slowly and noisily making it unusable with kids. If you don't mind manually focusing or can stop down a bit and keep the focus fixed, it will work.

Other Thoughts: A good upgrade from earlier models, even just for the white balance improvement.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Rebels have come of Age

Pros: 18mp AND HI-ISO - It will go to 12,800 | 6400 looks GOOD.
Good ergonomics and controls. Most of the features you are used to in a 20/30/40 D are here.
1080P video and 24P frame rate and external mic jack = great video platform.
You are getting a 'Baby 7D' - roughly same sensor and chipset - just scaled down - 1 chip instead of 2, 3.7 fps instead of 8 , etc.
If you don't need 8 fps - this is your best bang for the buck. end of story.
I love the new 3:2 million dot screen on the back - has to be seen to be loved - and you will love it.

Cons: These are not 'CONS' just the reasons Canon sells this baby for $700 and the other thing for 17 HUNDRED.

It's smaller to the point of almost feeling a wee toylike. I'm used to rolling with the 40D + grip + batts and a 24-105 and it gets a little tiring. BIG hands need not apply -= or drop the duece for the grip and it's still a great deal.

No studio strobe plug. Cheat and get a shoe flash wireless system $30 or so.

It's SD card - sorry all you guys with $500 invested in CF - BUT - the good news is SD is cheap and you can get an EYE-FI card which gives you roughly the same capabilities as the wireless grip they were selling for a GRAND on 20/30/40 D line.

To get the best out of it does require some skills in processing as well as some decent skillset and GOOD GLASS.

Still with the kit lens and onboard flash and you will be perfectly happy with your snapshots.

Put a 35/50/85mm prime on there or a 24-70 or 24-105 or any 'L' and prepare to be amazed. And you will

Other Thoughts: I've been invested in the Canon system since the original rebel - the 300D came out.

Then the 10D. Then the 20D and 40D for the last 3 years.

I was willing to take a step down their product line as I do not need high speed fps or weatherproofing. I'm an indoor cat.

There is very little reason to reach for a 20/30/40D if you have one of these and you are shooting studio portraits. Or macro. Or cars. Or landscape.

Or a million other things.
Shooting the NBA? Racecars? anything that requires ABSOLUTE best AF speed and accuracy along with 8 or 10 fps? YOu can get away with a rebel until you get your first check - then get into a 7D or 1D that suits you.

Even if a I had a 1Ds, the only reason I would use it would be if I needed a full frame because my lens was too long ......

Or if there was a camera snob in the room snickering 'cuz it's a rebel.

The Dude abides. And the Dude is shooting Glamour Models with a Rebel T2i and a 24-105 and happy as a clam.
