Canon EOS Rebel T1i

Digital Photography Interface
23 September 2013
  • Conclusion: The new Canon EOS Rebel T1i aka EOS 500D is a relatively small digital SLR camera with 15 megapixels, a nice and large 3 inch LCD (which is as sharp as tacks), 3.4 FPS burst mode and it delivers good image quality. Perhaps someone got too focused on “keeping things smallâ€� and forgot about ergonomics – the Rebel T1i’s grip is too narrow and cramped for most people; this, of course, is subjective but don’t say I didn’t warn you.
  • Pros: Very good image quality with low noise till upper ISO speeds, Very sharp 3 inch high-res LCD with good visibility, Compact design for a digital SLR, Compatible with many accessories (unsurprising for a digital SLR), Decent automatic shooting with scene modes and Creative Auto mode, Full manual controls; flash hotshoe, RAW image mode and white balance tuning, Customizable “My Menuâ€� and center SET button, Good battery life; can be prolonged by using optional battery...
  • Cons: Noisy images at ISO 6400 and 12800; camera’s high-resolution sensor is taxing on lenses, No ‘out of the box’ wireless flash support, Small grip; worse ergonomics than some other SLRs, Crippled movie frame rate (20 FPS) at 1080p resolution, no continuous autofocus, Limited RAW buffer in burst mode, Slow autofocus in live view mode, â€�Shake off the dustâ€� method not effective

  • Conclusion: The Canon EOS Rebel T1i helps redefine the D-SLR landscape by offering prosumer features, performance, and image quality for less than $1,000.
  • Pros: Excellent value. Stellar image quality. Fast performance. HD (720p30) video capture. Big, 3-inch high-res (VGA) screen. HDMI-out.
  • Cons: Cannot continuously focus during video recording (user must hold down a button to refocus if subjects change their distance from the camera). Autofocus mechanism is audible in video recordings. Full HD 1080 video capture looks sluggish due to its low frame rate. No microphone input.

LAPTOP Magazine

  • Summary: The $799 Canon EOS Rebel T1i inhabits an exclusive class of DSLRs that provide strong image quality, fast speeds, and HD video for a reasonable price. Overall, we prefer the Nikon D5000 because of its more intuitive interface and low-light performance, Plus, it costs $170 less. Nevertheless, the T1i is a very strong contender.
  • Pros: Accurate colors, Solid image quality, Generally fast performance, Long battery life,
  • Cons: Poor sound in movie recording, Stumbles in harshly backlit situations,

Canon EOS Rebel T1i

Macworld

  • Excerpt: (1 items) Canon has a fairly simple system for naming its various digital single-lens reflex (SLR) cameras. There are cameras that are named with a single-digit number, like the 1DS and 5D (the EOS 5D Mark II [ ], to be precise); these represent the upper end of the product line. Then there are the cameras named with a two-digit number, such as the 50D; these cameras fill the mid-range of Canon’s SLR line.
  • Pros: Full feature set, Excellent image quality, Great high-ISO performance, Very good design
  • Cons: No external mic jack or manual exposure controls when shooting video
