The Canon EOS Digital Rebel T1i is looking like a solid competitor to the Nikon D90. The T1i has 15.1 megapixels built-in with 1080p HD video recording. It won’t come cheap as the prices starts around $799. With an IS zoom lens it is about $899.
The T1i also features a 3″ Live View screen, Digic IV processor, auto lighting optimizer, Creative Auto mode, and the EOS integrated cleaning system.
“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, SVP and GM for the Consumer Imaging Group at Canon U.S.A.
