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.

Not my dream camera

Robin Holabird "rhbird", Amazon
16 July 2011
  • 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.

Good, but...

Esperanza Suarez, Amazon

  • Summary: The timing was great, the product very good but we seem to not have gotten two things, small, that they did check to see if it was packed but we did not get it. Sorry!

User Review

yubageoff, DP Review
17 April 2010
  • 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.

Video Problems with some sdhc cards (especially Kingston), You may miss some good shots unless you use sandisk extreme lll.

smithnwesson "Tom", Amazon

  • 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. I pre-ordered a body (I already have 2 xti's and lenses) but the only the kits are/were available so I upgrade to get it before a SciFi convention I attended.

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.

Great Camera , not so great accesories

velazques25, Ebay
2 June 2009
  • 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. The other accessories included, the "make belief" macro and wide angle snap on lenses, tripod, and every thing else I would rate as average and below average. They are extremely cheap and basically use less if you are interested in serious photography.

Canon EOS 500D Kit

Imhotep, price.ua
5 June 2012
  • Conclusion: В целом, я аппаратом доволен. Хотя, если вам не особо нужна возможность снимать видео, и hi-res ЖК-дисплей вас не манит, то, думаю, лучше взять 450D, так как там и шума должно быть меньше (мегапикселов там меньше), да и стоит он сейчас (23.10.09) значительно дешевле.
  • Pros: 1) ЖК-дисплей с высоким разрешением 2) Возможность снимать видео неплохого качества (если не двигать фотокамеру; см. недостатки, пункт 3) 3) Возможность использовать ЖК-экран в кач-ве видеоискателя (L
  • Cons: 1) Заметны шумы даже при низких ISO 2) Не очень удобная ручка (маленькая; на моделях xxD и xD она побольше) 3) Низкая скорость считывания картинки при съемке видео. Если снимать удаленный объект, то э
