Canon Rebel T2i / EOS 550D

The T2i (EOS 550D outside the US) is a new flagship model for the Canon Rebel DSLR line that bridges the gap between an entry-level camera and a true prosumer camera. It includes a variety of new features, including: 3.7 fps continuous shooting, an ISO range of 100-6400 (expandable to 12,800), a 63-zone Dual Layer Metering System (intelligent Evaluative metering with finer segmentation), and Canon’s DIGIC 4 Imaging Processor. It comes with Full HD 1080p 30 fps video and 18-megapixel still images (CMOS), 3-inch LCD monitor (1.04 million dots, wide 3:2 aspect ratio), HDMI video-out, expanded ± 5 EV exposure compensation, an external stereo microphone jack and support for SDXC memory cards. It is compatible with Canon’s BG-E8 battery grip and new RC-6 wireless remote control for both still images and video capture. The T2i is scheduled to be delivered to U.S. in early March, and will be sold for $799.99 (body only) or for $899.99 in a kit version with Canon’s EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS zoom lens.
