Camera is great, but you'll want to start replacing some of the accessories as you get into it

Summary: Got this as a present for my wife, and she loves it. The kit has just about everything someone would need to get started, but you will probably want to start replacing things with higher end products as you get into it more.
Summary: The reason why I ordered this bundle is because I wanted to replace my T3i which was damaged. They had a special on and when I did the math, I was getting extras that I planned to buy anyway like the 75-300 lens and the extra batteries for a lot less than it would cost if I bought them all separately. The T4i is a really good camera. I already have a lot of equipment which fits it already. The video quality is amazing.
Main Product is great, accessories are cheap/ will break.

Summary: This would've gotten 5 stars but......the camera bag will not protect your new expensive camera and lenses at all, very loose and could fall out. Tripod already broke, luckily the camera wasn't on it. Also, if you think you are gettinfg a deal on this during Black Friday, you're not; which I thought I was. The price dropped for this package about $200 in late January up to now.
Summary: I bought this camera four months ago. I love it. However, today I started getting an error message. Error message 20. I looked it up and it means that there is a mechanical problem and the shutter won't operate and the only way to fix it that I've found is to ship it back to Canon. I did some more research and found that it's a common problem, but I never saw anything about this problem while doing my preliminary research.
amazing picture quality, but uncomfortable to hold

Summary: This is my 4th Canon EOS, after 1 film one I've had 300D, 450D, and now 550D. while the cameras are getting better for obvious reasons, the ergonomy is getting worse and worse. each model is smaller, harder to hold, and more painful for my fingers, especially with my heavy lenses. if there was a comparable middle-class model, I would happily pay more to get it, but unfortunately feature-wise there seems to be no competition except for the highest models.
Summary: I had always wanted to get rid of my mini DV tape camcorder, a very nice Panasonic 3 CCD unit, go with solid memory, and combine it with a nice DSLR just to save room in the old camera bag. Not a bad idea until you actually try it. I happened to be in California on a visit and went into a Fry's store, lo and behold they had a Canon T2i kit "In Stock".....I just had to have it. Tried it out and after a couple weeks took it back.
Great sensor, but: poor ergonomics, no improvement by Canon...

Summary: I will not repeat what others said about issues with video pan/focus, I noticed the same problem and I would recommend to read the other reviews for detail. Lest stay with the central issue here, the photography itself. The small Canon's served me as a 2nd body, and this is the perspective of these comments. I am disappointed by the layout of the controls.
Summary: Lovely camera which takes beautiful photographs but sadly I have had to return it. I bought it originally in July 2012 but had persistent and worsening problems with large grey pixelated areas in my photographs, particularly in poor lighting. I returned the camera and Amazon promptly sent out a new one with which I had no further problems until January when the autofocus on the 18-55mm kit lense suddenly, and completely, failed.
