The Canon T2i [ON SALE] is the successor of the recently released Canon T1i. Improvements in this new model include an 18 MP APS-C sensor, SDXC memory card support, ISO support up to 12,800 and an improved HD video mode.
The controls and LCD screen on the Rebel T2i have also been improved. The T1i is a still a great camera, but if I were in the market for a DSLR now, this would be my pick. It is a bargain compared to models with similar features. Owners of the Canon T2i praise it for its quality design, durability and most importantly, features. If you’re going to invest in a DSLR, you might as well get one that supports video. Support for SDHC and SDXC cards is also a plus.
Of course, picture quality is where it really matters. The Canon T2i shines in this category. It is especially notable for its excellent low-light performance and lack of noise. For best results, pair the T2i with a high-end lens such as the Canon EF 28-135mm for general-use or the Canon EF-S 15-85mm for wide-angle shots. Those planning on getting a lot of mileage out of their DSLR might also want to look into the BG-E8 battery grip.
