The good: Fast performance; very nice photo quality; HD video capture.
The bad: Annoying viewfinder; video capture is its only better-than-basic feature.
The bottom line: A solid, slightly better-than-basic dSLR, the Canon EOS Rebel T1i delivers photo quality and performance that adequately compensates for most of its annoyances.
Spectacular camera for the price, beautiful photos, A++
by jfiney on August 16, 2009
Pros: Amazing photos. Seriously. Photo quality is incredible. Color balance, exposure, and image clarity all top notch for the money
Cons: No live view in a few modes (but seriously dosn't matter that much), video stutters for half a second when you take a picture, but that's normal
Amazing Pics, Superb LCD, and Video to boot!
by vbiro on May 30, 2009
Pros: The pictures are what people buy these for and that's where this camera excels. With a boost up to 15 MP from the XSi's 12 and the use of Canon's Digic IV sensor from the XSi's Digic III, this beast pumps out some amazing quality photos.
Cons: None. This camera rocks!
Great camera, great pictures, poor video playback
by gblindsay on July 14, 2009
Pros: Easy to use
Cons: The video playback is jerky when loaded on a computer at all three modes (Full HD, HD & Std)
Summary: Also .MOV files are not recognized by Windows Movie Maker so you can't edit with that program and I'm having difficulty editing with Pinnacle Studio Ultimate 12.1 ...
Summary: Also .MOV files are not recognized by Windows Movie Maker so you can't edit with that program and I'm having difficulty editing with Pinnacle Studio Ultimate 12.1 Bought the camera for the movie/video mode capability and not pleased with results on playback on my computer or my editing attempts...picture seems to freeze in editing although the sound is good. Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.

One third of pictures are out of focus.
by gmzaks on October 18, 2009
Pros: Ok... I can take the time to list many good features about this camera. It does have them. But the bottom line is that the bad news in the next section MUST convince you to not make the same mistake I made.
Cons: #1 con.... it does not focus well. At least one third of the pictures are out of focus.

Summary: I have the Canon 18-50 and the Canon 50-250 zoom lens. I've had the camera for about 2 months now. Taken it to Alaska, and to a family reunion and numerous "photo days out" to test, play and learn the camera. I am not a professional but I do know what I am doing. The auto focus function of both lens is simply unreliable. Full auto mode, program mode, especially in video mode, the focus simply goes nuts. I know the camera has many focus modes and capabilities, but I am not talking about the special stuff. With all the great functions, there are too many times when I just want to take a simple picture of a group of people. Even if I force the aperture as small as possible (to get the widest depth of field) and if the 3 people are in a straight line next to each other.... it simply does not get them in focus. Some pictures are just GREAT. But too many simple ones just stink, and never knowing is killing the enjoyment of using this camera. The $300 SONY point and shoot which this replaced simply took better pictures.

Half star for being a paper weight
by barkhuff on September 16, 2009
Pros: The camera with the optional grip has a good feel to it
Cons: Do searches against canon camera for water damage. Their cases leak like the first **** ever made.

Summary: I took my camera to london for vacation. It rains frequently so I tucked it into my coat while it was raining to keep it dry. My body heat steamed up the lens. I let it dry out and it would not power on. Canon warranty support says "severe water damage" and will cost more to repair than to buy new. I now get to pay another 20 dollars to have a paper weight shipped back. I can think of so many better ways to spend 1000 dollars for 4 days worth of shooting.
