The Evolution Continues.
The new flagship of the EOS Rebel line, Canon EOS Rebel T2i brings professional
EOS features into an easy to use, lightweight digital SLR that's a joy to use.
Featuring a class-leading 18.0 Megapixel CMOS Image Sensor and increased light
sensitivity for low light photography, the EOS Rebel T2i also has an advanced HD
Movie mode for gorgeous Full HD movies. Able to capture up to 3.7 frames per
second, it's ready to go the minute it's picked up. Advanced Live View, a new
wide-area screen, plus features like Canon's brilliant Auto Lighting Optimizer
and Highlight Tone features ensure brilliant photos and movies, easily. With
some of the most advanced features of any digital SLR, it's simply the best
Rebel Canon has ever created.
Creative control with no compromise on quality
The EOS Rebel T2i makes Canons powerful imaging technology more accessible
to consumers. Canons advanced DIGIC 4 image processor and 18MP sensor support
standard ISO settings of 100 " 6400 (expandable to 12800), while enhanced
in-camera noise reduction technology boosts performance in low light conditions.
The systems 14-bit image processing also produces smoother tonal gradation and
natural looking colours for high quality prints and on-screen display.
For swift and accurate focusing, the EOS Rebel T2i features a 9-point AF
system with one extra-sensitive cross"type point at the centre for f/2.8 or
faster lenses. The EOS Rebel T2i also supports high-speed, continuous shooting
at 3.7 frames per second (fps). These features provide users with the
opportunity to exert greater control over their images, allowing them to capture
split-second moments with ease and accuracy.
Continuing Canons tradition of filtering new technology and features down
from its advanced and professional DSLR ranges, the EOS Rebel T2i includes the
iFCL metering system first launched in the EOS 7D. New for EOS is the ability to
set the top limit for automatic ISO, allowing users to control the maximum
amount of noise in their images. In a first for entry level EOS, exposure
compensation and bracketing can be set up to plus or minus five and two stops
respectively, allowing the photographer to take a number of differently exposed
versions of the same shot to ensure they capture a well-exposed image, even in
difficult lighting conditions.
EOS Movies: Full HD video with creative control
As the ability to record Full HD video becomes increasingly important, Canon
continues to deliver DSLR technology that sets the industry benchmark for
multimedia functionality. The EOS Rebel T2i records video in full 1920x1080p HD
resolution, allowing photographers to select the frame rate preferred from 30,
25 and 24fps, as well as offering 720p video at 60 and 50fps. The EOS Rebel T2i
also includes a 3.5mm stereo microphone socket, enabling the use of an external
microphone when capturing video.
Photographers can also take manual control over exposure settings, changing
the depth of field and degree of motion blur to shoot more creatively. To
provide the best possible video quality, highlight tone priority (HTP) can be
set independently for movie capture, without changing any still image capture
settings. In situations where the subject is further away, the EOS Rebel T2i
Movie Crop function records with the central 640x480 pixel area of the sensor,
creating an effective magnification of approximately seven times. The EOS Rebel
T2i is the first in the EOS range to feature Movie Crop and gives consumers more
flexibility to capture important moments which would otherwise be too far away.
A clear view of your world
The EOS Rebel T2i also allows photographers to view their images and video
in unhindered clarity. A 7.7cm (3.0) 3:2 Clear View LCD screen with 1,040k dot
resolution makes it possible to see 100% of captured images with no borders. The
anti-reflective, water-repellent coating also makes it easier to see the screen
in bright conditions and from a variety of angles.
EOS build " Canon quality
As consumers would expect from an EOS DSLR, the EOS Rebel T2i is built to a
high quality specification. It features bigger, more intuitive buttons which
have been redesigned following feedback from users. Based on this feedback, the
EOS Rebel T2i also features an additional button on the new, battery grip,
allowing aperture settings to be changed when shooting with the camera in a
vertical position, without having to reorient the body.
Share the moment with friends and family
For EOS Rebel T2i photographers, shooting great pictures and video is just a
first step. Thanks to an integrated HDMI port compatible with High-Definition
Multimedia Interface " Consumer Electronics Control (HDMI-CEC), video and images
stored on the EOS Rebel T2i can be viewed on an HD-ready TV and controlled via
the TV remote.
For users who want to transfer content wirelessly, the EOS Rebel T2i includes
Eye-Fi connected functions. The EOS Rebel T2i features a dedicated Eye-Fi
section in the User Interface and it disables the automatic power-down function
when an Eye-Fi card is transmitting - allowing users to transfer content easily
and without interruption.
The EOS Rebel T2i is fully compatible with all Canon EF and EF-S lenses and
EX series Speedlite flash units, including the compact Speedlite 270EX. The EOS
Rebel T2i is also compatible with the new RC-6 Remote Control, allowing
photographers to capture high quality stills and Full HD video without touching
the camera body. The slim line infrared controller can trigger the shutter
release from up to five metres away, with users able to select either immediate
release or a two second delay for greater flexibility when shooting.
