Today's photo enthusiast is looking for a camera that will grow with them as they learn, and that is a perfect description of the new EOS Rebel T2i Digital SLR camera. Retaining all of the traditional characteristics that have made the EOS Rebel series beloved by entry-level photographers and an industry best-seller, the new Rebel T2i succeeds in bridging the gap between an entry-level camera and a true pro-sumer camera."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1265775873.usr486.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>The new Canon T2i packs some nice features.&nbsp; An 18 mega-pixel CMOS sensor is the highlight item in the upgrade from the T1i.&nbsp; Also, the ability to record 1080p video at 24 or 30 frames per second is a nice new feature.&nbsp; Dpreview already got a look at a pre-release version and came away fairly impressed, you can check out their preview <a href="http://www.dpreview.com/previews/CanonEOS550D/" target="_blank">here</a>.&nbsp; Priced at $900 with the kit lens (or $800 without it) it is aiming for upper end of the entry level market, but seems to have the features to compete with a lot of the mid-range cameras currently available.</p>
