Highly Ranked Inexpensive DSLR

Canon EOS Rebel T2i 18 MP

You have heard the saying “less is more” right?  Well in this day and age in America, more is usually more.  With the Canon EOS Rebel T2i we truly feel like you can say less is more again.  Your getting a professional grade DSLR for under $800 that will give you pictures your friends will droll over.  Oh, and did I mention its less than $800?  It is.

The camera’s CMOS 18MP sensor really shines in low light, an area where a camera typically struggles the most.  The on board flash is a decent flash and it is nice that you don’t have to lug around a separate flash to connect and disconnect every other shoot.  The viewfinder was crisp and clear with vivid colors that made it easy to adjust shutter speed and aperture without over or under exposing the picture.  If you’re looking for a camera where you get the most bang for your buck then this is your best bet.  It’s consistently ranked highest DSLR across the web even when compared to it’s more expensive sibling DSLR’s.

With an 18MP sensor inside this camera you would be able to have your photo’s printed on 13″x19″ canvas (or whatever you want to print it on) and it would still be good to excellent looking.  So if you’re looking to blow your photo’s up for your wall of art to impress your guests then 18MP is a good size.  Here are some other goodies:

  • Video is full HD 1080p
  • Self cleaning sensor
  • ISO 6400 (expandable to 12800)
  • Large 3″ LCD monitor
  • Battery rated up to 550 stills or 1hr and 40 min of HD video recording
  • Built in Flash

As with anything I’d recommend reading a bunch of reviews from other people who own this camera.  Head over to Amazon to check it out and read others reviews.
