  • Excerpt: After working with a Canon EOD Rebel XTi, I moved onto this camera. The size is larger, especially when coupled with a larger lens, though the quality of the images far exceeds the added weight in the pack. Various modes the camera features have been used, though a lot of my photography is done manually. The camera holds up to a good amount of abuse. The battery with average use lasts a good amount of time, I've noticed having to charge about once a month.

Canon EOS 550D v Panasonic Lumix GH2 test

digitalslrphoto.com
18 April 2011
  • Conclusion: The arrival of CSCs pose a new challenge to DSLRs. The GH2 is without doubt the best CSC we’ve tested and offers many benefits, in particular its AF speed, smaller size, touchscreen LCD and its video function. The Canon EOS 550D has the edge in terms of ease of use, price, system back-up and image quality from its stills.

Canon EOS T2i EF-S: Review

Electronics Made Easy
12 October 2010
  • Summary: The Canon EOS Rebel T2i Digital-SLR camera almost has too many features to list, with a 18-megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor, DIGIC 4 image processor for high image quality and speed, ISO of 100-6400 (expandable to 12800), enhanced 63-zone, dual-layer metering system, and improved EOS Movie mode. While it still has a few minor flaws, such as questionable white balance, for the most part it is a very good DSLR with excellent features and capabilities.
  • Pros: Improved- better video and audio in EOS Movie mode, DIGIC 4 image processor, Advanced- compatible with the latest SDXC memory card standard for higher capacity, Affordable- certainly one of the best-valued DSLRs for the price, Featured- 3-inch LCD, 18-MP sensor, EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens
  • Cons: Limited- average battery life, noisy, no full-frame sensor

Canon EOS 550D Review

digitalslrphoto.com
17 June 2010
  • Conclusion: Canon needs the EOS 550D to be the complete all-rounder to dominate this area of the market and judging from the two weeks I've had with the camera, I have to say I think it is. In terms of what a would-be user expects, it ticks all the boxes. It's small, lightweight and easy to use and its range of features are more than enough for beginners and advanced amateurs alike.

Canon EOS 550D review (Rebel T21)

What Digital Camera
30 March 2010
  • Summary: The EOS 550D is an excellent camera, offering a beginner similar specs to an EOS 7D semi-pro model at a fraction of the price. The low-light and video perfromance are a superb bonus to the excellent overall image quality.

Canon EOS 550D / Rebel T2i

Camera Labs
1 March 2010
  • Summary: Let's start with those headline features. In our tests, the EOS 550D / T2i delivered images which were essentially the same as those from the EOS 7D: they're highly detailed and manage to keep noise levels under roughly the same control as Nikon does with its 12 Megapixel models. Considering a 50% hike in total pixel count, that's a decent achievement. You can see a full report with both JPEG and RAW files in our results pages .
  • Pros: High resolution 18 Megapixel stills., Adjustable HD resolution and fps with mic input., Superb high resolution screen with 3:2 shape., Confident 63-zone metering system from 7D.
  • Cons: Modest 3.7fps shooting and small RAW buffer., Screen fixed in position, unlike several rivals., Average 9-point AF system and viewfinder., Compelling rivals if you don't care for 1080p movies.

Canon EOS 550D DSLR camera review

Pocket Lint
16 April 2010
  • Excerpt: The new Canon EOS 550D was one of those cameras that got us really excited when it arrived at Pocket-lint towers. For some it is a camera that can potentially confuse - packing an 18-megapixel sensor into a consumer DSLR seems counter to the sensible moves to slow the megapixel race in recent years.
  • Pros: Detail in images, excellent video performance and controls, performance in ISO range, shooting mode to appeal to newbies and advanced photographers
  • Cons: Price, some of the advanced settings are well hidden in menus
