Canon introduces a new addition to its Rebel lineup, the EOS Rebel T1i Digital SLR camera, the first in the Rebel line to feature Full HD video capture. The new Canon Rebel T1i SLR incorporates some of the best technologies from the EOS 50D and EOS 5D Mark II models into an entry-level juggernaut. With a 15.1 megapixel CMOS sensor and HD video capture, along with the DIGIC 4 Imaging Processor, the Canon Rebel T1i gives aspiring photographers plenty of reason to step-up to the latest and greatest model in the Rebel lineup. The new Canon EOS Rebel T1i SLR camera raises the entry-level bar with a host of enhanced Canon technologies now available in an entry-level DSLR.
Along with the boost in megapixels and Canon’s most advanced imaging processor to-date, this latest Canon Rebel camera has also been enhanced with HD video capture, a 3.0-inch Clear View LCD (920,000 dots / VGA) monitor and user-friendly functions such as Auto Lighting Optimizer, Creative Auto Mode and Canon’s Live View modes, all the right tools to open new doors for imaging enthusiasts. From high-resolution to high-definition, the new Canon EOS T1i Digital SLR camera helps to give creative consumers a jumpstart on the next evolution in digital imaging.
The muscle behind Canon’s new EOS Rebel T1i camera is the DIGIC 4 Imaging Processor with 14-bit analog-to-digital conversion and the ability to process full HD video. The Canon EOS Rebel T1i digital SLR camera offers continuous shooting at 3.4 fps for up to 170 large/fine JPEG images or up to nine RAW images in a single burst when using a class 6 or higher SD or SDHC memory card. Whether capturing wildlife on the run or a child mid-stride on the soccer field, users will appreciate the fast shooting capabilities of the Rebel T1i Digital SLR camera.
Controls and body styling are nearly identical (differences are broken down in the User Report below); the main changes are internal. The Canon T1i’s new sensor is ever slightly larger at 22.3 x 14.9mm compared to the 22.2 x 14.8mm measurement of the XSi’s sensor, but the bigger change is the new sensor’s high ISO capabilities, running from 100 to 3,200, with two expanded settings: 6,400 and 12,800.
Also introduced at the same time is the very small Speedlite 270EX, a new flash that is easy to pocket and gives cameras like the Rebel T1i and the PowerShot G10 an accessory flash that won’t threaten to flip these lightweight cameras over. The flash head zooms manually from 28mm to 50mm coverage, and flips up to 90 degrees. Like other EX Speedlites, the 270EX transmits color temperature information to the camera. Power comes from two AA batteries.
