Canon Rebel T2i Has What You Want

What are you looking for in your next digital SLR camera? Whatever it is, the Canon Rebel T2i will have it.

With each succeeding release in the Rebel line, Canon has increased the already amazing quality for entry level digital single lens reflex cameras. Now that the Canon Rebel T2i has been on the market for a few months, the other makers must be huddled in their "secret places" attempting to determine how they can be competitive with this awe-inspiring camera. This is good news for photographers everywhere, because photography equipment will be rising to new levels.

So, just what is it that floats your Digital SLR boat? Here are just a few questions that may be what is running through your head even now. And the answer to each question is exactly the same. That answer is the Canon Rebel T2i.

This is it - Canon Rebel T2i (aka 550D)

Do you want great image quality?

Previous Rebel models have all had excellent image quality, but this one has lifted the level to another notch, just about equal to cameras that are more than twice as much money. Even when bumping the ISO setting to the greatest levels, where image quality has been questionable in the past, this one delivers really high quality prints.

Do you want the ability to change lenses?

We're talkin' SLR here. Choosing your lens is one of the reasons a photographer chooses this type of camera. With this unit, almost all Canon lenses will be suitable to attach, and many manufacturers such as Tamron and Sigma make lenses for it as well.

What about HD video? Is that your top dog?

This is the feature that first drew all the attention. HD video at 1024p and 24 or 30 frames per second is tops in the field, no matter how much money you invest in a digital SLR camera.

Live View is one of the newest additions to digital SLR cameras. Is Live View your top priority?

The version of Live View in the Canon Rebel T2i is new and improved. You can use it for superior composition and control functions on the fly.

Numerous manufacturers have digital SLR cameras for under $1000. Do you want the right camera in that range?

While individual opinions are merely that, views, the camera review sites and magazines are pretty much unified in acclaiming the Canon T2i as the "Best Rebel Yet". Sub $1000 price tag is a huge bargain for this awesome piece of photographic equipment. Even if it is considered an entry level Digital SLR, it has the features of cameras that cost much, much more.

The last word: The Canon Rebel T2i has what you want.
