Fast performance; excellent photo quality; above average video-capture quality.
Annoying viewfinder; irritating control layout for video capture.
A great follow-up to the T1i, if you want the best photo and video quality in a dSLR for less than $1,000, the Canon EOS Rebel T2i is hard to beat.

Most everyone will tell you about the great photo’s this camera takes. 18 MB photos are crisp with great color! You can also read about the default lenses the camera comes with and they too are great.
What you haven’t read too much about is the video. My daughter is a soccer player and I bought the camera to shoot her soccer games. When I was talking to someone at Best Buy about the camera he told me this technology is the “cutting edge” of movie making. Actually, I had heard this from different resources who were pursuing degrees in movie making. Today, TV shows such as 30 Rock are being shot using Canon cameras. Google T2i and you’ll find numerous videos being shot using this camera.
For the soccer games I sit in the stands and for each scene I shoot a short video. When the ball is kicked out of bounds, I stop the video and then start it again when the ball is thrown in. What I end up with is ~ 120 small videos of the soccer game. I then come home and download all the videos onto my computer and using an application I downloaded off the Internet for free – I quickly go through the video’s documenting the ones worth keeping. After deleting the ones that are no good – I’m left with a set of incredible sharp videos.
Since the camera is very good in low light – it works well for the night games with the lights on the field. What’s even nicer is that I’ll sometimes flip it over and take some shots of the coach coaching the girls or girls sitting on the bench. Great photos!
Since the video is shot in Full 1080 the clarity is awesome!
I’ve posted many of the videos on YouTube so parents can watch and I’ve had numerous people asking me what I shot the videos with. Many have said, “It’s almost like I’m sitting there!” Most can not believe I'm shooting the video using a camera!
It’s an expensive camera, but the output is incredible.
