Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i Reviews

LaptopMag reviews the Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and writes;
“The $799 Canon EOS Rebel T1i inhabits an exclusive class of DSLRs that provide strong image quality, fast speeds, and HD video for a reasonable price. Overall, we prefer the Nikon D5000 because of its more intuitive interface and low-light performance, Plus, it costs $170 less. Nevertheless, the T1i is a very strong contender.”

TrustedReviews reviews the Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and writes;
“Build quality, handling and performance are as good as ever, and image quality is at least equal to anything in its class. With a good combination of versatility and quality at a decent price it looks like another best-seller. “

ImagingResource reviews the Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and writes;
“Great print quality, good color, sharp 13×19 inch prints from in-camera JPEGs very sharp ones from RAW files. Even 20×30 prints would be usable for wall display (especially those from RAW files), where they wouldn’t be viewed closely.”

PCAuthority reviews the Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and writes;
“Our test videos looked superb: well-balanced colours, lots of detail, and the ability to switch lenses is a feature missing from all but the most expensive semi-professional camcorders.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

LetsGoDigital reviews the Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and writes;
“The camera is user-friendly and provides an extremely high image quality. The Canon 500D is everybody’s friend. The camera will offer the ideal learning curve for the beginning photographer and help elevate him or her to new level of photography. As far as we’re concerned, the Canon EOS 500D is a complete camera and therefore a camera that will suit every user.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

PopPhoto reviews the Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and writes;
“The image quality the Rebel T1i offers with its 14-bit RAW capture, Digic 4 processing, and accurate 35-zone metering is astonishing given its price. Just a few years ago, you couldn’t hope to get talent like this for under $1,000. In all, an amazing first—or step-up—DSLR .”

Photocrati reviews the Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and writes;
“Buy it. The Rebel T1i may not be as much fun to use as some cameras in this size or price range, but it delivers plenty of bang for the buck. Just be sure to buy a second lens, in case the kit lens should meet with an untimely demise.”
Rating: N/A

Shutterbug reviews the Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and writes;
“In all, the Canon Rebel T1i performed admirably in that it delivered very good images, at least with the lens provided; I suspect the images would be even better with more than a kit lens. “
Rating: N/A

Photozone reviews the Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and writes;
“the EOS 500D is another recommendable masterpiece from Canon. However, Canon EOS 450D users don’t really need to upgrade unless there’s a critical need for the movie mode functionality. “

CameraLabs reviews the Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and writes;
“If Canon’s feature-set fits the bill though, or you’re simply after a good step-up from a budget DSLR, the EOS 500D / T1i comes Highly Recommended.”

KenRockwell reviews the Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and writes;
“The reason to get this T1i is because of its greatly improved ergonomics. It just works better than earlier Canons… I’d have no problem turning out incredible images with a T1i and any Canon lens. “
Rating: N/A

BobAtkins reviews the Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and writes;
“Overall I think the Digital Rebel T1i is one of the best bargains in Canon’s (or anyone else’s) DSLR lineup. You get a high resolution sensor, ISO capabilities up to 12,800, HD video and most of the “bells and whistles” that the average photographer will ever need. “
Rating: N/A

DCRP reviews the Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and writes;
“the Canon EOS Rebel T1i (also known as the EOS-500D) is a well-designed, compact digital SLR that takes good quality photos and videos. Whether you’re just starting out or upgrading from an older Canon D-SLR, it’s well worth a look. “
Rating: N/A

MacWorld reviews the Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and writes;
“Overall image quality is great, and the camera does a startlingly good job of shooting in low light at high ISOs. While the previous Rebels began to suffer above ISO 800, the T1i delivers fantastic results at ISO 1600, and even produces usable images at ISO 3200. This supposedly lower-end camera delivers high ISO results that are better than you’d have seen with the pro cameras of just a couple of years ago.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

PhotographyBay reviews the Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and writes;
“Overall, I highly recommend the Canon Rebel T1i to anyone looking for a feature-rich and very capable DSLR on an entry-level budget. There are plenty of great DSLRs on the market – some offer more features and some may be cheaper. However, this is the best Rebel yet. Image quality rivals cameras much more expensive than it and, if you buy something cheaper, you’re going to miss out on some cutting edge stuff that only the Rebel T1i offers.”

DigitalStory reviews the Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and writes;
“It feels good in the hands, is light on the shoulder, records excellent images, and I have my entire inventory of Canon lenses at my disposal.”
Rating: N/A

DCR reviews the Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and writes;
“The Canon Rebel T1i is both a great camera for the photographer looking to move up from compacts and advanced amateurs who want total control and excellent image quality… This is one of the better DSLRs I have shot with in the past few years, and by far the best Rebel yet to hit the market.”

DxOMark compares Nikon D5000 to Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and writes;
“The Nikon D5000 sensor obtains exceptional results for low ISO settings and outperforms the Canon EOS 500D sensor in Dynamic Range and Color Depth. When ISO increases, however, the differences become smaller, but the Nikon D5000 still maintains a slight advantage.”

Pocket-Lint reviews the Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and writes;
“The still image performance is compelling but we can’t help but feel the video is something of a novelty. Yes, you can capture crisp and detailed high-definition video, but it comes with a list of limitations.”
Rating: ★★★★½

Steve’sDigicams reviews the Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and writes;
“we are very pleased with Canon’s Latest Digital Rebel. The T1i offers some very powerful features that have been handed down from its big brothers… This camera possesses a high degree of appeal with loads of exposure options, and class leading ISO capabilities, performance, and image quality. “
Rating: N/A

DCI reviews the Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and writes;
“In our extensive lab testing, the T1i only stood out in two sections: still image color accuracy and video quality… The worst problem area was image sharpness, where it performed very poorly, producing photos much softer than we expected.”
Rating: ★★★★½

DigitalTrends reviews the Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and writes;
“The Canon EOS Rebel T1i is a solid mid-range DSLR with the added spice of HD video recording. We have no squawks on the camera section, other than noise becoming readily apparent beyond ISO 800. It’s responsive, and you’ll be more than happy with the prints, whether you making 4x6s or 13x19s. “
Rating: ★★★★☆

InfoSync reviews the Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and writes;
“Image Quality – Very Good: We had no complaints within the realm of color, detail, or exposure, and certain close-range images were magazine quality. However, we had to closely monitor our lighting, for the Eos 500D’s biggest weakness was a narrow dynamic range. “
Rating: ★★★★☆

PCMag reviews the Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and writes;
“images looked spectacular and were on a par with those of the more-expensive Canon 50D, since both cameras use the same sensor. At lower ISOs (100, 200, and 400), the T1i captured 2,102, 2,079, and 2,035 lines per picture height, respectively. These numbers are very impressive and go hand in hand with mega-sharp images”
Rating: ★★★★☆

RegHardware reviews the Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and writes;
“The EOS 500D offers better picture quality than the EOS 450D, but the difference is not spectacular. That said, images are sharp and colours are vivid, as the sample images highlight.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

PhotographyBlog reviews the Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and writes;
“the new Canon EOS 500D / Digital Rebel T1i is a much-improved DSLR camera that’s easily worthy of our Highly Recommended award. It doesn’t quite merit our full 5-star rating due to the combination of its high recommended retail price and quirky video mode, but the 500D is still one of the best mid-range DSLRs around.”
Rating: ★★★★½

CNET.asia reviews the Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and writes;
“The good: Full-HD video-recording feature; fast performance; good image quality; high-resolution LCD. The bad: Autofocus points are small and blink briefly; video clips not as smooth at 20fps.The bottom line: The EOS 500D is a very decent dSLR for first-time users and the inclusion of full HD video-recording function sweetens the deal.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

PhotoReview.au reviews the Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and writes;
“Low-light performance was outstanding, with no visible noise in long exposures right up to ISO 1600 and very little noise at ISO 3200. By ISO 6400, noise was visible – although not obvious. Noise was evident at ISO 12,800 but images were printable at 15 x 10 cm size.”
Rating: ★★★★½

GoodGearGuide reviews the Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and writes;
“Canon’s EOS 500D is a nice step up from the 400D. It is worth considering this digital SLR if you want the ability to capture high quality video with a still camera.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

DPInterface reviews the Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and writes;
“Image quality produced by the Canon Rebel T1i aka EOS 500D was very good with low noise and very usable pictures up till ISO 3200. And those who know their way or have the time to make use of post-processing and noise reduction software can scavenge ISO 6400 and 12800 shots for small to midsize prints/display too”

TechRadar reviews the Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and writes;
“We’re more impressed with the Digic 4 image processor and other noise reduction technologies, which really boost the ISO (light sensitivity) range on the 500D. With this camera, you can comfortably go as far as ISO 1200 without noise becoming a major headache”
Rating: ★★★★☆

RobGalbraith has a preview of Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i;
“Our first impression of the Rebel T1i sound quality is that it’s a notch below that, but still serviceable for a built-in mic (and noticeably better than the Nikon D90‘s built-in audio)”

CNET has a preview of Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i;

ImagingResource has a preview of Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i;
“So it’s pretty clear, if the Beta unit’s quality holds up, that the Canon Rebel T1i’s image quality is at least as good as the Canon 50D, delivering more detail than most of the 12-megapixel cameras on the market for less money.”

WDC has a preview of Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i;

Gizmodo has a preview of Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i;
“So with the T1i, you get a sizable chunk of the more expensive 50D’s imaging performance plus an arguably better spec-wise video capture mode than the D90—a pretty sweet deal here at an entry-level price where even the MSRP beats the street price of the 50D and D90 both.”

DCI has a preview of Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i;
“The T1i offers a nice balance of flexibility for sophisticated shooters and point-and-shoot auto mode for compact camera converts…As for the control buttons, the layout is easy to master and labels are legible and well placed, with two exceptions (the focus lock and focus area labels sitting on top of the camera while the buttons are on the back below).”

This is one hell of camera. Loved the video, and ISO up to 12800. I bet Canon will have a flip LCD screen on their next cameras, just like the new Nikon D5000.

Just upgraded my Cannon AE-1, yes, it is old, to the T1i. I couldn’t be any happier. Thereis a little learning curve going from 35mm SLR to the digital world, but it is really not that bad. Beats changing film and being able to store 400 photos on a 16 gig card is nice. I wil never miss “that one shot” again. Thanks to Cannon

LOL! I’m upgrading from an old A-1, so I know what you mean! Been waiting for the sensors and the processors to reach this price point. Can’t wait to get my hands on this…

I just bought this camera yesterday and I love the pic. quality. My ONLY problem is the learning curve. I am new to DSLR so I am lost when it comes to A lot of the Rebel t1i features.
It SHOULD come with a tutorial DVD to help us newbies out.

Dear…..
I have a problem with the canon eos 500d.
In combination with several lenses I have a front focus problem. I tested with the focus test chart and with help from the canon dealer.
Is it possible to handle the problem myself with fi software? Or do I have to consult an canon repair service?
Having no sharp photo’s is VERY irritating!
Please HELP.
