Canon EOS T2i Announced

Ready for Pre-Order. Canon have released details of their latest EOS Rebel camera called the Canon EOS T2i. The new T2i will become the higher spec model in the lower-cost digital SLR camera range.

On to the technical specs we see it has an 18 megapixel sensor with the ability to use 9-point autofocus and a 63 zone dual layering metering system similar to like the EOS 7D camera has.

On the back of the camera is a 3 inch LCD screen that has a smudge resistive coating and is capable of showing live-view images.

ISO on the EOS T2i ranges from 100 – 6400 and video on this camera can be captured in full HD 1080p at either 24, 25 or even 30 framers per second.

The camera will be priced at $799 for the body alone which is not bad at all considering how much technology they have crammed inside the body. For $899 you’ll get the standard 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 image stabilized kit lens.

The T2i certainly looks to be an amazing camera from what DVice have mentioned and makes you wonder what the higher end cameras will be including due to the lower end cameras quickly catching up.
