A Canon Owner's Review - ... of the EOS Rebel T1i Digital SLR Camera
As an owner of a Canon, I find that the camera works very well. In fact, any trouble taking photos has always been the result of operator error, not anything with the camera. The T1i is a smaller format camera than some of the professional models. It also uses more plastic. As a result, it is both lighter and more fragile than the larger units. The salesperson also warned that men can have trouble with the T1i controls. This has proven to be a non-issue.
The lighter weight of the camera is a bonus. The controls are easy to use, although there are many of them and learning each function takes time. Luckily, the T1i takes excellent photos in the automatic mode. The camera is easily upgraded with a wide variety of accessories. In addition to interchangeable lenses, the camera features lens filter threads. This allows any of a large number of filters to be used in order to adjust the photo quality. There are simply some things that cannot be done in the electronic studio, but instead are handled by filters. These are very inexpensive considering their usefulness. Just look for Canon 58mm filters.
The T1i takes better photos with either anti-glare or polarizing filters. The resolution of the shots is amazing. If the selector switch is set to "sports", the camera is extremely responsive, with practically no delay between shots. Perfect for photographing professional matches or capturing priceless antics of children.
Note that the T1i is a great camera but is priced very close to other very capable Canon models. It may be worth it to consider which model to purchase based on price and availability.
