The Journey Continues. Canon's new EOS Rebel T1i is packed with features, both refined and new. In addition to its admirable performance with an all-new 15.1 Megapixel Canon CMOS sensor, DIGIC 4 Image Processor, a 3.0-inch Clear View LCD with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coating, and compatibility with the EOS System of lenses and Speedlites, the EOS Rebel T1i adds remarkable Full HD video capture at resolutions up to 1920 x 1080. An HDMI port allows for quick connections to high definition TVs and monitors for easy viewing of your stills and video. The entire operation is simple and easy even if you are a beginner. You'll have uncompromised EOS Digital performance with power and flexibility right in the palm of your hand.

High Resolution Still Capture
New 15.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor with DIGIC 4 Image Processor for faster processing of fine detail and natural color reproduction, 14-bit A/D conversion for smooth color tones and gradations.

Canon's CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) sensor captures images with exceptional clarity and tonal range and offers the most pixels in its class. It offers many of the same new technologies as used by Canon's professional 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). Canon's DIGIC 4 Image Processor dramatically speeds up all camera operations for intuitive operation and offers improvements in both fine detail and natural color reproduction. It works in concert with the EOS Rebel T1i's image sensor to achieve unprecedented levels of performance in all lighting situations.

DIGIC 4 Image Processor
With the EOS Rebel T1i, analog to digital signal conversion is executed by a 14-bit processor, which generates digital data with incredibly smooth tones. A feature that originally appeared in top-of-the-line pro digital SLR cameras, the 14-bit conversion gives incredibly smooth transitions from light to dark colors with far less risk of banding. A sky at sunset is a perfect example. With this rich 14-bit gradation, the EOS Rebel T1i offers RAW images of the highest quality that can be processed with Canon's Digital Photo Professional software. Even JPEG files, which are always finished at 8-bits per channel, use the full 14-bit conversion initially to generate the best possible color and tonal detail.

Sophisticated Still and Video Features
Full HD video capture at 1920 x 1080 resolution with HDMI output for HD viewing of stills and video.

The EOS Rebel T1i shoots brilliant video, even in full high definition. By simply selecting Movie mode on the EOS Rebel T1i's mode dial, the camera's 3.0-inch LCD lights up, and it's ready to go. Shooting is at a frame rate of 30 fps when shooting SD or HD quality video (640 x 480 and 1280 x 720 pixels, respectively) and at a frame rate of 20 fps in Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) recording. Sound is recorded through the camera's built-in microphone. Playback modes are simple to access, and all Live View AF features can be used in shooting video.

Full-Featured On-screen Shooting
Live View Function for stills (Quick, Live and Face Detection AF modes) and video.

With Live View Function on the EOS Rebel T1i, you can enjoy nearly every camera function available in normal shooting, all with the convenience of composing on the camera's brilliant 3.0-inch LCD monitor. You can zoom in and navigate the composition and there's even a grid overlay for architectural shots. Live View focusing modes include Quick mode, Live mode and Face Detection AF mode and these are easily selectable through the convenient Live View Function menu.

Rugged and Reduced Glare High-Resolution Screen
3.0-inch Clear View LCD (920,000 dots/VGA) monitor with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings for improved viewing and smudge protection.

The EOS Rebel T1i has a 3.0-inch high resolution LCD monitor that features 920,000 dots/VGA for far more detail than previous Rebel-series LCDs. It's the same screen found on professional models such as the EOS 5D Mark II. A number of features enhance usability: 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.

Optimized Images Every Time
Auto Lighting Optimizer for superior highlight-shadow control.

The EOS Rebel T1i's Auto Lighting Optimizer is yet another image-quality tool that comes to the rescue in tricky lighting conditions. It can actually lighten dark areas of a scene while ensuring that bright areas maintain tonal detail. It's available in all shooting modes, including P, Tv, Av and Manual.

Sharp Results, No Matter the Light
Wide range ISO setting 100-3200 (ISO expansion: 6400, 12800).

The EOS Rebel T1i features a greatly expanded ISO range that makes shooting possible in situations previously impossible without flash. With an expanded setting to ISO 3200 (ISO expansion: 6400, 12800), along with the DIGIC 4 Image Processor's improved noise-reduction technology, your creative possibilities are nearly endless. Combine the EOS Rebel T1i with one of Canon's EF/EF-S lenses with Optical Image Stabilizer and watch your shooting possibilities expand even further.

Perfect Photographic Learning On the Go
Creative Auto goes a step beyond auto allowing control over frequently-changed settings.

Especially for beginners looking to expand their photographic horizons, the EOS Rebel T1i offers Creative Auto mode. While basic settings are based on full automatic operation, shooting guides on the LCD screen enable you to make corrections based on simple to follow guidelines. In essence, with Creative Auto mode, you can learn about photography while taking stunning photographs.

Shooting and Sharing Made Easy
Compatible with over 60 Canon EF/EF-S lenses and most EOS System accessories.

    EF & EF-S Lenses
    EOS Rebel T1i is compatible with all Canon lenses in the EF and EF-S lineup, ranging from ultra-wide angle to super telephoto lenses. Canon lenses employ advanced optical expertise and micron-precision engineering to deliver unprecedented performance in all facets of the photographic process. Special optical technologies, such as Aspherical, ultra-low dispersion, or fluorite elements are featured in the universally acclaimed L-series lenses, and Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer technology is featured in select lenses, including the EF-S 18-55mm IS lens bundled with the EOS Rebel T1i, to minimize the effect of camera shake. With Canon lenses, you can truly maximize the quality and performance of the EOS camera.

    Flash Photography
    The EOS Rebel T1i features Canon's acclaimed E-TTL II flash metering system. With any EX-series Speedlite, E-TTL II provides reliable flash output whether shooting fill-in flash pictures in sunlight or using flash in total darkness. With E-TTL II, the exact same 35-zone metering sensor used for measuring ambient light is also used for flash metering - giving even finer metering command of the image area. If you prefer a broader area for flash metering, there's a menu setting to change to Average flash metering - where the entire 35-zone area is measured evenly for flash exposure.

Comments about Canon Canon EOS Rebel T1i Digital SLR Camera w/EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens:

I was using a AS 590IS, this offers so much more control over my shots. The additional zoom lenses are also great (50-250mm IS). Overall I give it 4 starts because I'm not experienced enough to give it that rating. The manuals and software are easy to use and offer great advice.

Comments about Canon Canon EOS Rebel T1i Digital SLR Camera w/EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens:

I am a rank amateur with cameras. However I have been very frustrated with the results from many point and shoot digitals for indoor use. Too often the photo is blurry or the flash effect just ruins the shot (birthday cake shots). So I bought my Canon T1i for my business and personal use. In full automatic mode this camera is 1000% better than any point and shoot. The pictures are brilliant (most of the time).

I am also playing with the controls (I bought the dummy guide to the T1i) and yes, even I can improve on the automatic mode is certain situations (the birthday cake shot).

For me, the camera really shines at professional events - particularly the award grip and grin photos. It does a great job in regular hotel lighting (which is generally pretty dim).

I like the stock lens with the kit. I also like the light weight feel of the camera. Sure it is larger than point and shoots, but it really is easy to use and the photos are significantly better.

Comments about Canon Canon EOS Rebel T1i Digital SLR Camera w/EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens:

I've taken better picture with this than with any other I've ever owned. My Canon experience goes back 40 years to the FT, then AE-1s, XTi and now my T1i, the 18-55 IS lens has allowed me to take clearer pictures than ever before, I also purchased to 55-250 IS lens as well, and a battery grip. The battery grip makes it handle much better as well as giving AA capability.
Thanks
Bruce Walker.
