42nd Street Photo Reviews Canon EOS Rebel Digital T2i

Today, 42nd Street Photo recommends you one of the best selling cameras, Canon EOS Rebel Digital T2i or the 550D as it’s called in Europe and Asia, which is absolutely incredible. Great value for money, and if you consider buying a DSLR in a low end range, this would be your perfect choice. It’s really affordable and comes with some great features.

The Rebel Digital T2i captures videos at various resolutions and frame rates: 24, 25 or 30 fps. It does do full manual control 1080p video. With the 18.0-megapixel CMOS sensor, it captures images with excellent clarity and tonal range, enjoying more than enough resolution for big enlargements or crops. This sensor uses the same technologies as the professional Canon cameras.

The Rebel Digital T2i has a high-precision, 9-point AF system that uses both normal and high-precision focus depending on the aperture and available light, and it can be selected either manually or automatically.The camera uses a Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Zoom Lens which has optical stabilization, something really cool for beginners, shifting the lens elements so they are always lined up perfectly.

With an ISO rating up to 6400 (expandable to ISO 12800), along with the DIGIC 4 Image Processor’s improved noise-reduction technology, you can be as creative as you want.

The extremely high resolution 3.0-inch Clear View LCD monitor features 1.04 million dots/VGA for extraordinary detail, and has an anti-reflective and water-repellant coating.

Its compatibility with SD memory is great because every laptop has an SD card reader. It also supports the Eye-Fi cards which let you send out your pictures over Wi-Fi while you’re taking them.
