Canon EOS Rebel T1i

consumersearch.com
16 November 2011
  • Summary: ConsumerReports.org provides less detail, but compares the Canon T1i with even more models. The reviews at ImagingResource.com and at DPReviews.com are quite detailed, with ample illustrations and sample shots. CNET's review is shorter but includes important criticisms. DxOMark.com tests just the camera's sensor (only one factor in image quality and camera performance).
  • Pros: Great image quality, Excellent 720p HD video at 30 fps, 3-inch extra sharp LCD with live view
  • Cons: Fixed LCD screen, 3 fps maximum speed for still shots, Kit lens gets mixed reviews

Canon Kiss X3 (500D or Rebel T1i), the Review

Akihabara News
5 October 2011
  • Summary: I’m very happy with overall photo quality of the Kiss X3 (500D, Rebel T1i). While I can’t explain the weird ISO 100 result in low light, the camera will give you great photos most of the time, there’s no doubt about it. The video mode on the Kiss is like on the Nikon 5000D, a real deception and I would have prefered both Nikon and Canon to give me a GPS module rather than a weak video mode.

  • Conclusion: • A dedicated record button in Video mode is provided on the right side of the screen which also doubles up as a button to switch on live view mode in P/TV/AV/M/A-DEP mode. The same button can be used to choose what pictures to transfer when the camera is connected to a PC or Mac.

Canon EOS 500D Review

digitalslrphoto.com
18 May 2010
  • Conclusion: The Canon EOS 500D is, as you'd expect, an excellent camera. In terms of performance, it's hard to fault and the range of features will keep dedicated amateurs more than happy. Its small size and light weight make it a practical choice for many, although some may find it a little difficult to hold. It's a great camera, but it has one major problem – it's not that different to the EOS 450D, which costs far less.

Canon Rebel T1i Digital Camera Review

Hardware Secrets
30 November 2009
  • Summary: The Canon Rebel T1i is an excellent choice for a mid-range digital SLR. With its picture settings and the auto settings, the Rebel is suitable for a first-time SLR user. Given an adequate time investment, a beginner could use this camera on his first day and gradually add to his knowledge while learning the cameras ins-and-outs. However, the sheer number of functions, menu options, and buttons may be intimidating to some new users.

DP Review
7 November 2009
  • Summary: Canon's popular consumer model takes another step away from the 'entry-level' with an impressive spec sheet and consistently good performance across the board. It may struggle to really excel in any particular area, but it taken as a whole it's one of the strongest contenders in this category.
  • Pros: Good resolution and detailed output (but only very marginally better than 450D), Decent (but not 'best in class') high ISO JPEG performance, Extended ISO speed up to 12800 (not great quality but it's there for emergencies), Good quality HD video (but sound output does not match the image quality), Currently the cheapest 1080P video capable DSLR (albeit only at 20fps), Overall snappy and responsive performance, Very clear, high resolution 3.0 inch screen with anti-refl...
  • Cons: Visibly more noise in RAW files than some of the competition, Slightly less highlight range in JPGs than the competition, Relatively limited RAW headroom, channel clipping means color accuracy can often not be maintained when recovering clipped areas in RAW conversion, Metering has occasional tendencies to overexpose in very bright, contrasty conditions, Unreliable auto white balance and presets under artificial light, Still slightly plasticy appearance and surfaces, ...

Canon Rebel Sports Oversaturated Colors, Intuitive Tools for Newbies

Wired
13 October 2009
  • Excerpt: In both still and video modes, the Canon’s colors are comic-book oversaturated, so it’s a good thing the menus are easy to navigate: A deep settings massage will slap them into shape. No such luck with the moiré problem. Close parallel lines danced around so feverishly that some of our test clips of brick-heavy Brooklyn were hard to watch. And though the camera will grab 1080p video, it’s at a syncopated 20 fps. Scenes at 720p resolution and 30 fps flow much better.
  • Pros: Creative Auto mode provides intuitive tools for newbies. Though there’s no full autofocus for video, you can refocus manually while shooting. Offers some advanced image controls for video.
  • Cons: Pronounced orange hue in most photos, especially indoor shots. Reds look weak. Outdoor pics usually come out overexposed. 3-inch LCD doesn’t swivel, so you have to hold the camera in front of your nose while filming.
