The Canon Rebel T1i Stands Up to Its Predictions, Competitors

Canon Rebel T1i First Look: Aaa-Mazing

I've been anxiously waiting to get my hands on the Canon Rebel T1i since its release in May, so you can imagine how quickly I ripped open the box when it arrived! I was stoked that Canon could pack such awesome pro options in a camera tagged with a smaller, more manageable consumer price ($899).

For me, the most exciting features coming with Canon's new 15.1 megapixel DSLR are the full HD 1080p video capabilities, a built-in dust removal system, the fun "creative auto" modes that let you experiment with different variations on the regular auto functions, and it also comes stocked with the same light sensor that you'll find on the Canon 50D — a decidedly more "prosumer" camera but that comes with a much bigger price tag.

To find out what else I like about the T1i compared to other DSLRs on the market today, just

.

I always thought my point-and-shoot did a really good job of capturing images, which means it took me a really long time to jump into the DSLR market. But after messing around with the T1i, it pretty much puts my Sony T100 to shame, and is likely to be the best consumer DSLR for its price. One of the great things about the T1i is the weight. This camera is easily a pound lighter than its competitors, which means you're more likely to take this with you on trips, and in my case, less likely to drop it! Plus, it has a nice big LCD screen on the back so you can easily change your settings, and even use it in the "live view" mode to see your upcoming shots instead of using the viewfinder.

The T1i's controls are very intuitive (instead of mind-boggling like the ones on the Nikon D5000), has a nice grip to it, and sits really well in your hands. I can't wait to use some of the great photography tips we've accumulated and take the T1i for a more in-depth test drive. Stay tuned for a full review and a few sample photos (and video) coming up soon!

I want this camera soooo bad! Haha. I have been having dreams about it. I might be getting one for my birthday I am excited. Plus my mom's old friend mailed me his old canon cameras and lenses and I can use them on this new camera.

IDK, if you want "quick vacation shots" then bring the point and shoot. :shrug:

What a gorgeous camera; I plan on getting a Canon DSLR in the future (I need to upgrade from my Canon PowerShot,lol.)

I have an xti and LOVE how my photos turn out. I'm not a grand photog, but Canon's prosumer cameras are really fantastic. I think I paid about $600 — a huge splurge for me — but so worth it.

Really nice! I'm looking for my first DSLR and I'm between Sony A300 series or this one or the XSi... But now I don't know which one is the best. I'm learning, so what do you girls think?

Cool review. I'll have to look in to this one. I was to buy my first DSLR.

Auto features are a waste of time if you're shooting with a DSLR. These cameras are so powerful (and we spend so much money on them) that we should take the time to learn about shutter speed, aperture, exposure composition, white balance, etc. and use the equipment properly, imo.
