Would consider for HDR nature, never for Events or Videos

Summary: That's my take on this item. The body is so light as someone mentioned so that the lens you choose, that works great on Sony Alpha with stabilization in body, and Nikon D with AF built in, will come out half slightly noisy which works for web, but not for blow out print. But it's ok if most come out great, but it didn't work for me for low light events using flash. The video sucked so bad, I would never consider HD DSLR for video but my camcorders. There's NO comparison.
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...
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.
Summary: When I recieved the package there were rocks inside... I don't know why, but some of the rocks were about half the size of a golf ball. I am still happy with the product, but it would have also been nice to know that the lens was not in the best condition. It takes pictures just fine, therefore I'm still happy that I found it for this price.
??? I HAVE A QUESTION!! Please answer for those of you who know!!!!

Summary: Does (at the bottom of this camera) have a space where you can clip it to a tripod? Or do you have to buy it separate or something?? Because it doesn't have a picture of the bottom, and I don't know if ANY tripod with work with this!! PLEEASSEE ANSWEERRR!!!
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. The learning curve for operating the camera is relatively easy for those who have used Canon products before. Visually, HD video looks great, but its physical operation is limited and difficult, with poor sound.
Summary: I really like the features of the Canon Camera. I think Canon has done everything right with respect to photographs. HOWEVER, if you are also purchasing this for its video capabilities, you should look elsewhere. The two (dealbreaker) biggest flaws...the camera does not autofocus when shooting video...so if you are video shooting your children running the image will start clear and get blurry in a hurry.
