Rob Galbraith: HD video capture, 15MP sensor in Canon EOS Rebel T1i
Canon today has introduced the EOS Rebel T1i, an evolution of the Rebel XSi that incorporates a 15.06 million image pixel CMOS sensor, DIGIC 4 processor and three inch (diagonal), 920,000 dot rear LCD into a body that's nearly identical to its predecessor. For pro photographers, though, the main attraction of Canon's newest entry-level digital SLR may well be its ability to capture HD video with sound, making it a budget alternative to the EOS 5D Mark II for Canon still shooters wanting to capture moving pictures with their SLR. We have a first look at the camera, plus downloadable video files captured with it.
