5 out of 5 eggs Canon EOS Rebel T2i - my favorite camera 01/04/2012

This review is from: Canon EOS Rebel T2i Black 18.0 MP Digital SLR Camera w/ EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens

Pros: - low light sensitivity
- fast shutter speed
- rich detail and color
- endless variability in manual settings
- proven Canon EF mount for lens selection
- good all-purpose lens
- multi-point focus when desired
- relatively low weight (for SLRs)
- long battery life (over 400 shots per charge)
- wide selection of pre-programmed settings

Cons: - price
- bulk
- flash range
- data size (6-10 MB on average per JPEG, 25-30 MB per RAW)

Other Thoughts: This has become my favorite camera for nearly any venture. I bought the T2i primarily for wildlife and landscape photography; it generates luscious landscape photos -- especially seascapes. What I found truly amazing was its performance under low light conditions. The ISO 6400 capability allows me to take flashless pictures I never dreamt of and breathtaking night-time photos of city lights (especially reflecting over water).

Getting the most out of this camera will take a lot of practice and study but you can amaze yourself with it right out of the box.

I ended up coupling my T2i to a different all-purpose lens -- the Tamron 18-270 -- but this 18-135 is a good all-purpose selection for most uses that gives you decent overlap with Canon's L-series IS USM 100-400 zoom.

This is NOT the camera for someone who wants a compact point-and-shoot but it IS the camera for the prosumer who wants to swap between the ease of point-and-shoot and the control of manual settings.
