A DSLR Recommended for Newbie – Canon EOS Rebel T2i
Canon has been to the limelight as always. After launching its Canon EOS Rebel T1i in May 2009, the updated version followed shortly in 2010 – the Canon EOS Rebel T2i.
Using this one, I find it easy to learn digital photography, although at first – I had a hard time using it. When able to attend a seminar on how to use a DSLR efficiently, I was able to understand the basics. I still need to learn how to maximize the functionality though because at times, I still use the automatic set up. I also tried using this Canon EOS Rebel T2i to create my digital greeting cards.
Presently, among Canon DSLR cameras, the T2i has the largest and sharpest display with a 3-inch LCD. It gives VGA resolution (1.04 million dots) with a 3:3 aspect ratio display that measures 1.75 by 2.5 (HW) inches. In all of its rebel cameras, Canon still stick with the same user interface (UI) that is almost once and the same to its mid-range and professional line. Though its user interface is simple and intuitive, still you need to know and be familiar with D-SLRs in order to use the various features of the camera.
With an average of just 1.38 seconds, the T2i can power on and snap its first shot and its continuous shooting speed is limited to 3.7 frames per second (fps). Because of its 18-megapixel sensor, the camera is unable to process images more quickly. Using the Imatest suite in PC Labs, testing the T2i has been discovered that it produced a very sharp image quality because of its 18-55mm kit lens that ships with the T2i. At the T2i’s sharpest f-stop (f/5.6), the camera averaged 2,296; 2,258; and 1,885 lines per picture height at ISO 100, 200 and 400, respectively. The Canon 7D averaged 1,999; 1,975; and 1,882 lines at the same ISO sensitivities.
Another amazing thing about Canon EOS Rebel T2i is that it can write to SD/SDHC memory cards. Actually, the T2i is known to be the first Canon Rebel to offer support for SDXC cards that can store up to 2 terabytes of data while achieving read and write speeds up to 300 Mbps. It also includes
Mini-HDMI and mini-USB ports in which it is inclusive of these standard ports indicating that there’s no need to search high and low to look for a replacement, particularly when travelling out of the country wherein there is non-availability of proprietary cables around.
Indeed Canon EOS T2i proffers brilliant image quality and the entire mainstream HD video resolutions. Generally, what makes it more go further among others is its major improvement over its predecessor are video-related, though. So it is really a brilliant idea having a camera both with high quality functions may it be as a camera or a video recording.
As a newbie, I highly recommend Canon EOS Rebel T2i for ease and quality. I use this one for my food porn and as well as for my travels for convenience.
