A Decent Buy

  • Excerpt: The Cannon Rebel T1i is a great camera if you are a beginning professional photographer.
  • Pros: The 15.1 megapixel ratio means my computer won't get clogged up.
  • Cons: I've read that it isn't too good for video.

Canon - EOS 500D good choice by reasonable price

  • Excerpt: Pros.: Best camera for start level. Have been using it more than 1 year and have not had any serious complaints. What particularly pleased with: a good matrix, a good white balance, ISO, many manual settings, and of course video. Cons.: The only drawback, built-in flash can emerge from failure, it happened with my colleagues. To unleash the full potential of this camera, you should use a high-class lens.

  • Excerpt: this camera is a wonderful for taking high speed photos of family members and action shots.  especially photos of children and kids that require split second shots.  It is very easy to miss an opprtunity for a good photo whith a a camera thst has a very slow shutter speed.  After yoyu take ashot whith a typical camera thereds could be a delay of up to five seconds at least and this may cause you to miss dozens of photos snap shots that could have been caught in any of...

Not good enough for the price

  • Excerpt: It really depends on what you are using the camera. If you are just a starter, this might be something good to use and learn off of. I started off with a Canon 50D. As I was learning from classes, I realize that Nikon Cameras are better for photography while canon cameras are preferrably used in movies/videos. I started with Canon 50D and had a very fun time using it. Obviously, when using a T1i, It feels inferior.

User Review

  • 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. Oddly, when we viewed the pictures later on the computer you could not tell which camera the chip had been in. Oh well. Son in law Mike is happy, which is what counts.

  • 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.

"Average camera for that price"

toshikuat, CNET
22 December 2009
  • Pros: Light weight camera, good for traveling. Good and fast capturing image. Above average image quality. Comes with video HD and live view.
  • Cons: Body looks cheap and plastic. The grip size is small and awkward. The kit comes with 2 lenses. They look very cheap and plastic. HD 1080p comes 20FPS-weird FPS number. Tele-lens AF, you can hear the adjusting click and quick lens shifting.

A downgrade from most recreational cameras

moonsyne, Viewpoints

  • Excerpt: I wanted a more professional camera from my old and beat up Kodak EasyShare P712 . My husband bought me the * Digital Rebel T1i. * This was such a disapointment. The lack of zoom, video, and speed was the first things I noticed. To set up live view is almost enough to make the most laid back photographer scream. Moreover, the photo quality in low light is pitifully lacking. It was a nightmare to create any night photography. Firework photos were dull and lifeless.

Desperately Wanted to Love This Camera

M. Bach, Amazon
21 July 2009
  • Summary: After happily putting my Xti through its paces for years, I was really ready for this new model. I'd been plotting an upgrade for months, and was mainly considering the T1i, and 40D/50D line. I like the small size of the rebel, and was excited that the new T1i shared so many traits with the 50D--MP count, similar sensors, etc. I thought that would finally make the decision a no-brainer. I ended up returning the camera a week later.
