Summary: Auto focus does not find the object wanted most of the time. I use my camera mostly for bird photography and most of my photos are out of focus. Perhaps if I took more time and read the instructions I would not be so critical. Trial and error is not working for me.
Summary: I am not as pleased as I'd hoped to be with this purchase but waited too long to send it back--which also means I don't think the product is a total waste. The still photo quality is excellent. Battery life is reasonable.
Excerpt: I use a Panasonic FZ50 which I think is a great camera. We also have a Panasonic TZ4 and we recently visited my daughter and her husband who had gotten a Canon 500D. Since both use an SD chip I shot a series of pictures using his Canon and our TZ4, expecting some excitement.
Excerpt: I am using the Camera now for more than 1 months moving from Nikon D80 which was of course more advanced than the T1I in all terms. However i still see the Rebel T1I a good camera. Image Quality is good with only one problem , which is low details,, Image is exteremly plain with very poor details
Video Problems with some sdhc cards (especially Kingston), You may miss some good shots unless you use sandisk extreme lll.

Summary: **see update below, now give this camera a 4 star **** Video Test memory consumption rates and max minutes per clip contained below. I couldn't wait to my hands on the new Canon T1i. It was a stretch for my budget but had most of the 5d mkll features. I was excited.
Summary: I basically bought this kit for the camera body, the two "real" lenses, the memory card and the camera bags. For those thing I will rate it as goo for the accessories and excellent for the camera.
Excerpt: Ok, so a good friend i admire purchased the 450 and 2 lens from jessops 9 months ago for £520[inc cashback] and since that day i have always been impressed, nay dare i say it without seeming camp, jelous of his kit.
