Excerpt: This Canon EOS Rebel T2i DSLR camera review finds a camera that certainly feels rugged enough for an entry-level DSLR. Although it has a few drawbacks, it's a really strong camera for beginning and intermediate photographers.
Pros: 18 megapixels of resolution, Fast auto-focus
Cons: Inexplicably slow entry into Live View, Narrow handgrip, Continuous shooting mode is average at 3.7 frames per second (for 6 RAW or 34 JPEG files)
Summary: Canon's EOS T2i ($899 with an 18-55mm lens) strikes a couple of nice balances: It's easy enough for novices to use but contains enough manual features to satisfy intermediate users looking to get more out of their cameras. More importantly, whether you adjust the settings or leave the camera on Auto, the image quality is so gorgeous the T2i is bound to impress even users who have been shooting for a while.
Pros: Fast performance, Excellent image quality, Full HD video recording, Lightweight design
