  • 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.

  • Conclusion: The Canon EOS Rebel T2i pumps out beautiful pictures and boasts full-featured 1080p video recording options that were previously only available with D-SLRs twice its price.

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 (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 review

wired.co.uk
6 November 2014
  • Excerpt: Competition at the lower end of the dSLR market is fiercer than ever, as camera manufacturers compete for the loyalty of a fickle marketplace. New features such as HD video, and ever-increasing pixel counts mean that today's dSLRs for "beginners" offer more technology than last year's mid-range models.

Canon EOS 550D DSLR camera

Pocket Lint
16 April 2010
  • Conclusion: Impressive image performance is paired with hardware specs that will widely appeal. You don't get all the bells and whistles, but those elements that are missing really are high-end features. If anything, it's the fast action stuff where the EOS 550D isn't so capable. Some might snort at the body only price that is just under £700 (and the kit we tested here is £1099), but considering that this camera will be a solid foundation for a number of years makes it look like...
  • 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

Canon 550D

Absolut Photo
28 December 2012
  • Excerpt: En voilà un qui risque de connaître un beau succès parce que son positionnement tarifaire lui donne un beau rapport qualité-prix dans la mesure où il peut apparaître comme le petit frère de l'expert Canon 7d. Posons ses principaux atouts de ce Canon 550d : - un capteur aps-c de 18 MP (probablement un peu différent de celui du 7d) - un mode vidéo full HD 1080p (30i/s) avec autofocus, mais toujours aussi avec les problèmes d'autofocus (lenteur) -  une nouvelle cellule de...
  • Pros: qualité d'image, mode vidéo, qualité écran arrière
  • Cons: l'af du mode vidéo
