Rebel...its a camera..

  • Excerpt: Well my sister in law is a psuedo professional photographer and she has one of these bad boys, so I thought if I purchased it I could be a great photographer too! WRONG! :) It took me awhile to get used to all the bells and whistels this camera comes with--sometimes I think TOO many bells and whisteles can be a bad thing for novice picture takers like me! read the manual..I repeat --read the manual! I did eventually get used to the lens and handling of the camera.

"A high-priced, user-antagonistic utter disappointment."

  • Pros: Very good video and the very cool CROP feature for shooting video which is basically a 4x digital zoom built-into the video shooting mode. Very cool. Very useful. EXCELLENT software.
  • Cons: 1. Left side lens release like Nikon. 2. No in-camera processing. 3. Still Images look soft at 18mp...over-corrected...looking like old Penthouse photos. 4. SLOW...consistently under 3 fps in real-world use. 5. Flush control buttons on rear make cam USELE

Really sad

  • 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.

The canon EOS rebel t2i camera is good

  • Excerpt: the camera itself is pretty good.  the many features on the phone is a good feature and it allows the person to take many different types of pictures.  the shutter time is great, the ISO speed options is such a nice feature to have. it is kinda heavy but its tolerable.  the price of it is very expensive but it is well worth it if you are constantly taking pictures for any situations like i find myself doing.

amazing picture quality, but uncomfortable to hold

Robert Spalek, Amazon

  • 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.

No substitute for an easy to use camcorder.

  • 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.

AF failure

CS, Amazon
20 February 2013
  • 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.

  • Summary: Large zoom range, ultrasonic motor and an image stabiliser and all of this for a relatively cheap price.
