Canon Rebel T2i overview

  • 1Description

The Canon EOS Rebel T2i Digital SLR Kit w/ EF-S/18-135mmf/3.5-5.6 IS 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. This kit comes with an image stabilized Canon EF-S 18-135mm IS zoom lens, which has an equivalent focal range of a 28.8 - 216mm 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 Camera w/ EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 257.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent camera even for a beginner! I have been a casual family activity & vacation photographer for personal use only. I have been using a Canon PowerShot A710 for several years. Although that camera has done a great job for me, I wanted to make to next step of a better camera to get higher quality pictures with different zoom capabilities. I was nervous about buying a camera that had so many bells and whistles that I could not easily operate, but my new Rebel T2i is amazing! It is easy to use with similar options as far as picture type, but has so much more for me to learn. It is simple enough to use out of the box but will grow with my interest and abilities for years to come!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy with my decision. I love it! I bought this camera because my point & shoot camera could not capture the quick images of our new baby smiling, laughing, ect. A lot of our pictures are taken in low level lighting (living room in the evening) and from across the room. This camera helped remedy the blurring problems I was having. I am happy that I bought the 18-135mm lens. I find myself using the full zoom from across the room very often. It is nice to grab the camera on impulse and snap the shots from a distance without disturbing the moment or changing lenses. I highly recommend buying the book Canon EOS Rebel T2i/550D for Dummies. The camera has so many features. It is a shame not to learn how to use them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best camera ever! I teach photography in a local HS and have been a bit embarassed when I have students walking in with better equipment than mine! Our school has always used Canon equipment and they have always had great success. I just love all of the features on this camera that I will actually use! And Canon makes these features a snap to access and customize. This kit lens is probably the one that will live on this camera 99% of the time because it is so versatile. I took amazingly sharp photos at a nightime football game and crisp senior photos for a friend. I have only had this a couple of weeks but am so happy I got it! Now my students are the envious ones!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from worth the money. I am not even close to a pro photographer, but I know what I like in a picture. So, when people write reviews that talk about the f-stop settings shutter speed and all that stuff, my head spins. Simple plain english... Before this camera/lens purchase I had not shot pictures with an image stabilizing lens, now I don't think I will shoot pictures without one. The lens is great! I have probably only shot less than 100 pictures and just 3 videos, but in my opinion it is worth the money to get the video quality this camera gives along with 18 megapixels of still pictures. I am very happy with this purchase!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Camera for the price This is my 3rd of the Rebel line, from the original 300D, 450D (XTi) and now this one. This is a great little camera, and I do mean little. It's not as beefy as the 7d, but it's got almost all of the same functions. The range is amazing, and even with a Canon 50mm 1.8 lens it can record nice and clear in very low light at 1080p/30fps. I can't say enough good things about these cameras, they are the reason why I've stuck with Canon over the past 10+ years and I haven't been let down since. I suggest buying the Grip if you want a little more mass to hold in your hands, and at least a 16gb Class 10 card. I have 2, you would be surprised how fast you can fill one up!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Camera I use my Canon T2i for personal reasons and at Model Airplane Model Contests.I got to play with it this weekend for the first time and the pictures are outstanding and the color detail is exceptional. The built in flash is appropiate for most subjects that are fairly close up. It doesn't have much oomph after about 8 to 10 feet. For that I would definitely recommend and outboard flash.The camera feels comfortable in the hands and the lens I got is useful for most of my needs. I might add some type of Macro Tele-photo in the future. I got mine with the 18 to 135 zoom and a couple of 8GB SD Cards.I would highly recommend both B&H and this Camera for people looking for something beyond amateur ...Cheers Bob Champione

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great starter camera I decided to bump up from a point and shoot to A Dslr. A good friend of mine who has the canon 7d came with me to help me choose a camera. My budget was around 1000 give or take. I was going to get the canon t3i but the extra 100bucks for a tilty swivel screen wasn't needed. I just wanted a good camera for a good price and the t2i fit he bill. The picture quality is the same as the next few models. It is very easy to use. The lense is what really makes a great shot so I decided to spring a bit more from the 18-55mm to the 18-135mm which covers more distance. This gives me more range of shots and already see results 5x better than my old point and shoot. If your a beginner in photography or just wanna move up in better picture taking the canon t2i rocks!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great DSLR This camera is amazing for the price that you pay. The photos I have taken have been great so far and the features on this camera are well worth the cost, and will definitely please any beginning photographer. I have used this at one wedding and a few photo shoots and have taken some amazing photos already. The LCD is gorgeous and shows great detail when reviewing pictures. The only few negatives (that can't really qualify negatives) is that the battery life is somewhat short when taking video, but I guess that's what you have to suffer when taking HD video. The other negative is that the camera is not full frame, but Canon's full frames are much more expensive so this con is irrelevant.
