You can do more with this camera than any other for the price. It matches the Camera 7D in video shooting quality and for thousands of dollars cheaper… While there are differences in the camera functionality, for me what mattered more was to be able to shoot video with high quality lenses. If you invest in good Canon lenses, you will not regret it. And certainly, from buying this camera to start with, you’ll be able to spend more on lenses anyway! Great manual controls, superb still photos, and easy to use interface. Highly recommended.

Had the Canon XSi and upgraded to the T2i for a few reasons. Most importantly, I love the HD Video feature. I use it regularly at work by hooking it up to my microscope and am able to take video of slides while I’m viewing them. I also am able to hook it directly into a TV for a live image of what I’m viewing. The image quality is quite good. My only complain in this regard is that the camera will overheat over time, and doesn’t stay on for more than 12-15 minutes without shutting off when using the live feed without recording. You also can’t get rid of the little white box that’s used for focusing. I move it to the corner of the screen, but it’s still a part of the live feed image. I think it’s more versatile than an HD camcorder though because you can hook up different lenses to it.
Didn’t know a huge difference between the T1i (which I borrowed from a friend), but since there were some spec differences I decided to go with the T2i.
That being said, while it’s main function is for use with the microscope and the live feed, I do enjoy being able to take other photos.
I currently have the “nifty fifty” 50mm prime
The cheaper 55-250mm IS, and the stock 18-55mm IS.
Oh, and I just got the 530EX speedlite flash
Not the fanciest setup, but for a beginner like me, it’s been more than enough.
Now I just need to learn how to use the manual settings better….
