We've just received a production-level unit of the much anticipated Canon T2i digital SLR camera, and have posted our first set of test shots from it straight from the lab.
The Canon EOS Rebel T2i takes the reins from the company's existing T1i model as the flagship digital SLR of its consumer-oriented EOS Rebel camera series. Sporting an 18-megapixel sensor similar to the Canon 7D, the Canon Rebel T2i digital SLR doesn't shoot as fast as its big brother, but its frame rate is slightly increased over the T1i, from 3.4 to 3.7 frames per second despite the resolution increase. A new 3:2 ratio LCD also changes the dimensions of the new digital camera, which now has 1.04 million dots of resolution. The Canon T2i's ISO ranges from 100 to 6,400, with a special high ISO option of 12,800. Movie mode also has expanded ability, covering 1080p recording at 24, 25, and 30 fps, rather than the T1i's more limited 20 fps. Manual video exposure is also available, as is an external mic input jack.
