Canon Introduces EOS Rebel T1i
First Rebel DSLR To Feature HD Video Capture
LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., March 25, 2009 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging, today introduced a new addition to its Rebel lineup, the EOS Rebel T1i Digital SLR camera, the first in the Rebel line to feature Full HD video capture. The new Canon Rebel T1i SLR incorporates some of the best technologies from the EOS 50D and EOS 5D Mark II models into an entry-level juggernaut. With a 15.1 megapixel CMOS sensor and HD video capture, along with the DIGIC 4 Imaging Processor, the Rebel T1i gives aspiring photographers plenty of reason to step-up to the latest and greatest model in the Rebel lineup.
The new Canon EOS Rebel T1i raises the entry-level bar with a host of enhanced Canon technologies now available in an entry-level DSLR. Along with the boost in megapixels and Canon's most advanced imaging processor to-date, this latest Rebel camera has also been enhanced with HD video capture, a 3.0-inch Clear View LCD (920,000 dots/VGA) monitor and user-friendly functions such as Auto Lighting Optimizer, Creative Auto Mode and Canon's Live View modes, all the right tools to open new doors for imaging enthusiasts. From high-resolution to high-definition, the new EOS Rebel T1i Digital SLR camera helps to give creative consumers a jumpstart on the next evolution in digital imaging.
"We are witnessing the emergence of a new phase in digital imaging history, as high-resolution still images and HD video can now both be produced in a hand-held device, for under $1,000. This is truly a great time to be involved in digital imaging as the advent of online communities are helping usher in this next great era in imaging," stated Yuichi Ishizuka, senior vice president and general manager, Consumer Imaging Group, Canon U.S.A.
The muscle behind Canon's new EOS Rebel T1i camera is the DIGIC 4 Imaging Processor with 14-bit analog-to-digital conversion and the ability to process full HD video. The Canon EOS Rebel T1i Digital SLR offers continuous shooting at 3.4 fps for up to 170 large/fine JPEG images or up to nine RAW images in a single burst when using a class 6 or higher SD or SDHC memory card. Whether capturing wildlife on the run or a child mid-stride on the soccer field, users will appreciate the fast shooting capabilities of the Rebel T1i Digital SLR camera.
With the combination of its 15.1-megapixel APS-C size CMOS image sensor and the powerful new DIGIC 4 image processor, the Canon EOS Rebel T1i camera provides ISO speeds from ISO 100 up to ISO 3200 in whole stop increments, along with two additional high-speed ISO settings – H1: 6400 and H2: 12800.
The EOS Rebel T1i Digital SLR utilizes a precise nine-point Autofocus (AF) system and AF sensor for enhanced subject detection. The new EOS Rebel T1i DSLR provides a cross-type AF measurement at the center that is effective with all EF and EF-S lenses, while providing enhanced precision with lenses having maximum a...
Canon EOS-1D Mark III
First Look: Canon EOS-1D Mark III
The world’s fastest D-SLR gets a lot faster, live viewing, sensor cleaning and more!Canon's EOS-1D Mark II has reigned as the D-SLR speed king for more than a year, able to shoot its 8.2-megapixel images at an amazing 8.5 per second. Now Canon has blown that out of the water with the Mark II's successor. The new EOS-1D Mark III's ability to shoot 10.1-megapixel images at 10 per second is just one of its remarkable talents.
The Mark III's 3.0-inch LCD monitor provides Live View capability: When you so desire, you can focus and compose using the LCD (especially handy in dim light and to check depth of field) or send the image to a computer via USB 2.0 Hi-Speed cable or wirelessly (with the optional new Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E2A) for studio applications.
The new AF system can keep up with the 10 fps shooting rate and is twice as sensitive as the Mark II's, operating down to EV -1. There are still 45 AF points, but selecting them is easier, and 19 are now high-precision cross-types (vs. seven for the Mark II).
The newly upgraded shutter is rated for 300,000 cycles, up from 200,000. It also generates less dust, another element of the EOS Integrated Cleaning System.
A new rechargeable lithium-ion battery nearly doubles shooting capacity (to 2,200 shots from 1,200). And with battery, the Mark III is a significant 7.9 ounces lighter than the Mark II.
While the new Canon-produced 10.1-megapixel CMOS sensor raises resolution some 23% over that of the Mark II N, its APS-H size also means bigger pixels than 10-megapixel APS-C sensors for better low-light and high-ISO performance. ISOs now go up to 6400.

Canon Rebel T2i
Features 18-megapixel sensor, full HD video
Shoot sharp stills and capture full 1080p HD video on the Canon Rebel T2i, which features 3.7 fps shooting, an ISO range of 100-6400 (expandable to 12,800), a 63-zone Dual Layer Metering System, and Canon’s DIGIC 4 Imaging Processor.
Borrowing from Canon’s EOS 7D, the T2i’s sensor includes many of the same technologies used to reduce noise. For HD capture, the camera features 1920x1080 resolution, selectable frames rates up to 30 fps, and a stereo microphone jack along with full manual exposure control. In Movie Crop mode, images are cropped directly from the sensor at full SD resolution to provide about 7x of additional zoom without losing image quality. Estimated Street Price: $799 (body only).
