Shoot Like a Pro; Photography Made Easy—Canon T2i

Posted by The Camera Guy 1330698880.883


I recently had the opportunity to give a test drive to the Canon T2i DSLR.

As I held it in my hands, the first question that came to mind was, “What’s the difference in this T2i and the T3i we have been presenting here on the Q? Hmm…” The T2i shoots quickly with a 3.7-second shutter frame to capture fast-moving objects. It has 18 megapixels so you can get super-clear pics and has 1080p HD movie mode so you can capture powerful videos. As I turned it over and looked at the body, I realized it doesn’t have the articulating screen…and that’s about it. Honestly, it’s rare that I ever use the articulating screen on my Canon. It’s a nice feature, but let’s face it, most of the info we need is still going to be transferred to us through the viewfinder.

So, all of the power, speed, AND resolution…plus an awesome price? I’m good with the T2i! As far as I am concerned, it isn’t missing a thing that I need. This Canon is a new camera system that can grow with me and is still as easy to use as a point and shoot. Check out the video, and please read my other blog post for some helpful tips on taking better pet photos.

Does this camera have face detection?

My one question is - is the extra lens that is included Image Stabilized? The product description under "See the Value" indicates that it is, but the picture shown is not that of the IS lens.
