Canon Rebel T2i overview

  • 1Description

The Canon EOS Rebel T2i Digital SLR Kit w/ EF-S/18-55 IS II incorporates a number of advanced pro-DSLR features in a compact and very affordable camera body. Driven by a DIGIC 4 image processor, the T2i contains a high-resolution 18.0 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, and can capture JPEGs, RAW (14-bit, Canon original), or RAW+JPEG stills at burst-rates of up to 3.7 frames-per-second. The EOS Rebel T2i can also capture full 1080p HD video with monaural sound, or stereo sound when using (optional) 3.5mm external microphones.

In addition to the camera's bright eye-level optical reflex viewfinder, the Rebel T2i also features Advanced Live View (with a dedicated Live view/Movie button) for composing and editing your stills and video using the T2i's 3.0" Clear View LCD, which contains a whopping 1.04 million dots of resolving power.

Additional image enhancing tools include Auto Lighting Optimizer and Highlight Tone, which further improve detail in the highlight, mid-tone, and shadow areas in both stills and videos. As you'd expect there's also a 3-point Dust Deletion System and the option of shooting in either sRGB or Adobe RGB.

Videophiles will appreciate the Rebel T2i's Improved EOS Movie mode that allows for full manual exposure control, expanded recording 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), 30p (29.97) / 24p (23.976) / 25p, 1280 x 720 (HD), 60p (59.94) / 50p, 640 x 480 (SD), 60p (59.94) / 50p), Movie Crop recording in 640 x 480, and an external microphone IN terminal for improved sound quality.

An enhanced 63-zone dual-layer metering system and a 9-point AF system featuring a precision f/2.8 cross-type center point enable rapid focusing and accurate exposures. For low-light shooting, the Rebel T2i features an ISO range of 100-6400, which can be expanded to an equivalent of 12800 when necessary, and there's a Quick Control Screen that enables easy access to frequently used settings.

The Canon EOS Rebel T2i records imagery onto a choice of SD memory card, SDHC memory card, or SDXC Memory Cards and powers off an LP-E8 lithium-ion battery, which is good for up to 550 still exposures or 1 hour and 40 minutes of video recording. The EOS Rebel T2i is compatible with all Canon EF and EF-S optics. For CAEDRT2IK only - The Canon Rebel T2i kit comes with an image stabilized Canon EF-S 18-55mm IS II zoom lens, which has an equivalent focal range of a 28.8 - 88mm lens on a full-frame (24x36mm) 35mm camera.

18.0 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) Sensor and DIGIC 4 Image Processor Offer High Image Quality and Speed
The EOS Rebel T2i has an 18.0 Megapixel CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) sensor that captures images with exceptional clarity and tonal range and offers more than enough resolution for big enlargements or crops. This first-class sensor features many of the same new technologies used by professional Canon cameras to maximize each pixel's light-gathering efficiency. Its APS-C size sensor creates an effective 1.6x field of view (compared to 35mm format).

The Canon DIGIC 4 Image Processor dramatically speeds up the entire EOS Rebel T2i's camera operations for intuitive operation and offers improvements in both fine detail and natural color reproduction. It works in concert with the EOS Rebel T2i's CMOS Image Sensor to achieve phenomenal levels of performance in nearly any situation.

ISO 100-6400 (Expandable to 12800) For Shooting From Bright to Dim Light
The EOS Rebel T2i features an expanded ISO range that makes shooting possible in situations previously unthinkable without flash. With an ISO rating up to 6400 (expandable to ISO 12800), along with the DIGIC 4 Image Processor's improved noise-reduction technology, creative possibilities abound. Combine the EOS Rebel T2i with one of Canon's EF or EF-S lenses with Optical Image Stabilizer and the shooting possibilities for both movies and stills expand even further.
EOS Movie Mode Has Manual Exposure, Expanded Recording Modes, and Improved Sound Quality.
Designed for the evolving, tech-savvy user, the EOS Rebel T2i features HD Video capture technologies - manual exposure control for more creative control, for example - borrowed directly from professional Canon SLRs to capture stellar video with all the benefits of shooting with an SLR. By shooting video with the EOS Rebel T2i, photographers as well as filmmakers can take advantage of the creative features native to SLR cameras.

Along with its manual controls, the EOS Rebel T2i allows for full use of Canon EF and EF-S lenses, including Macro and Fisheye, providing a plethora of shooting options once reserved only for still photography. The resulting HD video is a standout in its beautiful depth-of-field characteristics and remarkable capture capability under poor lighting conditions. In a first for EOS cameras, a Movie Crop function is included; An SD-quality movie (640 x 480) can be cropped to the equivalent of about 7x magnification of regular shooting.

Video can be captured at a number of resolutions and frame rates for numerous applications. It can capture 1920 x 1080 Full HD video at frame rates of 24 (23.976), 25 or 30 (29.97) frames per second, for up to 4GB per clip. Movies are saved as MOV files and can be viewed in Full HD through the EOS Rebel T2i's HDMI output. Other recording sizes include HD at 1280 x 720 (50/60 (59.94) fps) or SD/VGA at 640 x 480 (50/60 (59.94) fps). The EOS Rebel T2i has a built-in microphone for simple mono recording and stereo sound can be recorded through a self-powered external microphone.

Enhanced 63-Zone, Dual-Layer Metering System and 9-point AF System
The EOS Rebel T2i features Canon's newest dual-layer sensor, with 63-zones. By measuring not only the amount of light, but also taking into account color and luminosity, this new system delivers a very high level of accuracy for better results every time. Since the metering sensor has a color measurement function, exposure errors and focus errors caused by different light sources are minimized. Thus, the EOS Rebel T2i gives stable exposure from shot to shot in situations where light changes, such as sports on a cloudy day, or indoor holiday scenes.

Additionally, the EOS Rebel T2i has a high-precision, 9-point AF system utilizing a high precision, f/2.8 cross-type center point. The 9-point AF system uses both normal and high-precision focus depending on the aperture and available light. The 9 focus points can be chosen automatically or manually selected.

Wide 3.0-inch (3:2 Aspect Ratio) Clear View LCD Monitor (1.04 Million Dots) for Improved Viewing.
The EOS Rebel T2i has a high-resolution 3.0-inch Clear View LCD monitor that features 1.04 million dots/VGA for spectacular detail. It also has the same aspect ratio (3:2) as the camera's sensor, making for clear and easy Live View composition. An anti-reflective and water-repellant coating provides a clearer and more smudge-resistant surface and screen brightness can be adjusted in 7 steps in accordance with ambient light.
Quick Control Screen Button for Easy Access to Frequently Used Settings.
The EOS Rebel T2i's refined button layout includes a dedicated button that directs the camera immediately to the Quick Control screen, where it's simple to navigate among any number of settings, including ISO, Exposure and Flash Exposure compensation, drive mode, white balance, image quality and much, much more.
Compatibility With SDXC Memory Cards, Plus Menu Status Indicator for Eye-Fi* Support
The EOS Rebel T2i is compatible with both SDXC memory cards for greater storage capacity and with Eye-Fi SD cards, which are outfitted with a Wi-Fi transmitter (IEEE 802.11b/g) and internal antenna for wireless, high speed transfer of images. With an Eye-Fi card installed, the EOS Rebel T2i can display the Eye-Fi's connection status and error notes with ease, for fully functional wireless uploading of images directly from the camera.
*Canon cameras are not guaranteed to support Eye-Fi card functions, including wireless transfer. In case of an issue with the Eye-Fi card, please consult with the card manufacturer. The use of Eye-Fi cards may not be available outside the United States and Canada, please contact the card manufacturer for territory availability.

    Canon Rebel T2i reviews

    EOS Rebel T2i Digital SLR Kit w/ EF-S/18-55 IS II is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 1102.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A game-changing camera I'm a videographer first, photographer second. The video from this camera is breathtaking, especially considering the price. Right now I'm using the kit lens and the 50mm f1.8. I highly recommend the 50 for low-light shooting. Video can be pushed to 800ISO without much noise at all. The full manual controls are perfect and easy to use. Keeping focus manually is not too difficult with the big 1mp screen. Couple downsides- no full-res HDMI out while in record mode; no control over audio levels. An external monitor can still be used for composition (and full-res playback). I bought a Zoom H4N for audio, works great with phantom-powered XLR!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from t2i for king of cost/benefits The t2i is impressive... It's the best cost/benefit I can think of... I both it for making videos and so far I am so glad I did. The thing I am most excited is the capability of exchanging the lenses and the fact the it makes a respectful full screen video, and all tho it's not full framed, the quality is amazing (again for that price). The lens 18-55 I am not so thrilled about, but it's my fault cause I don't know much about lenses and I was expecting to do more... If I could go back I would probably save the money to invest in a better lens (more expensive but one who could give me more depth of field and bigger zoom) Still I am having so much fun, it definally raise the quality of my work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Canon T2i kit Delivers a lot of Value/$ Canon's new EOS Rebel T2i w/EF-S/18-55 IS delivers a lot of value for roughly half the cost of it's model 7D big brother. It's 18.1 megapixel sensor is the same. Most other features are the same less a few frills like composition info in the viewfinder, wireless file transfer (WFT) option capability, and a slower shutter (1/4000 rather than 1/8000). All shooting so far has produced very good results in full auto, aperature priority, shutter priority, or video. The full 1080p HD video is everthing it is advertised to be... does a great job, better than my video camera. Really haven't found anything yet that I don't like.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best DSLR under a grand This camera is excellent in low light, sports, and HD video. I can't add much in terms of technical detail to what's been written already. Nit picking, the only things I could find wrong with the camera are that the design of the door that covers the USB/HDMI jacks is annoying since it refuses to get out f the way of the cables when opened. Also, like most of the inexpensive canon DSLRs, the grip is not well-designed for large hands. With the BG-E8 in place, it's great, but consider the extra cost of the battery grip a requirement if you're like me and have large hands and require the feel of something like the Nikon D90. Have a look here for samples:@

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Notch Camera This is my first DSLR camera. I have been waiting for a camera that has the bells and whistles of a professional camera with out the the $1,000 plus price tag. This was the camera I was waiting for. I have had several Canon SLR cameras in the past so the transitions to the digital was not bad. The owners manual very easy to understand and with in a few minutes was taking great pictures. I like to shoot in manual very most of the time but in trying some of the pre-programed settings I like the look you get from them as well. I am using this camera for a camera combination of work and home and it will fit in with what I am doing very well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome First DSLR My girlfriend and I primarily use this camera for photographing family, references for art and landscapes. So far it's been hard to take a bad photo with this camera. It's easy to experiment with all the manual settings and get some really cool effects. I can't think of a single shortcoming to this camera other than the body is made of plastic, but that's what keeps the price down. We're taking it to Grand Teton National Park this week and can't wait to see what we can capture there. I am a graphic designer and my girlfriend is a digital artist and this camera has given us more than enough professional images to inspire our creativity.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally Wonderful Product. I love this camera - I've owned 4+ digital point and shoot cameras, 5+ film SLR cameras and one other digital SLR. I am not a professional photographer, but an educated amateur - It has lots of great automated programs and functions, also makes photographer-controlled everything available. The stabilization feature is incredible. The exposure / color-tones, etc. are 100% right on. Light-weight - very affordable. An excellent choice for someone who knows and wants to know how to take great pics, but is not a professional. I also bought the zoom lens (up to 300) for bird photography. I totally LOVE this camera. Canon is the best.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will NEVER go back to Nikkon I'm just getting into DLSR photo, but I've used Nikkon film SLRs in the past. This Canon rebel is incredible. It does EVERYTHING. it is user friendly for beginners, but has plenty of advanced featured for growth in photography. I've had the camera just over a week and taken over 1000 photos, playing with all the features. Honestly, the only downfall I have is the lack of a way to attach the lens cover. It's be great to not have to resort to misplace it! OVerall, a PHENOMENAL camera for the beginner or an advanced user. Takes BEAUTIFUL photos, that blow up beautiful. 5 stars, two thumbs up, recommend it to EVERYONE
