In addition to making few point-and-shoot cameras official, Canon also unwrapped their new entry-level DSLR. The EOS Rebel T2i or EOS 550D is targeted at entry-level photographers that is able to shoot images at up to 18 megapixel resolution and features an impressive ISO range of 100-6400 (expandable to 12,800), 3.7fps continuous still shooting, 63-zone Dual Layer Metering System and Canon’s DIGIC 4 imaging processor.
Canon has also thrown in full HD video recording, which means users can record videos at 1920×1080 resolution at selectable frame rates or gain additional zoom and other features while shooting a SD quality video. The camera also comes with an HDMI-out port that is CEC compliant and can be controlled by CEC-compliant TV remote.
Canon will sell the Rebel T2i in US in early March for $799.99 for the body or $899.99 along with Canon’s EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS zoom lens.
