This was my first real camera that I've used. I've been using it for about 3 years now and it's a real work horse. It's a great step up from a point-and-shoot and I would recommend this camera to anyone who is looking to get into photography but it's looking for a wallet-burning sensation. Problems: -No External Flash Controls -Low Light can be problematic -Battery life is alright.

My parents own a Canon EOS 500D which they bought when it was pretty new on the market. They don't really know alot about photographing themselves, and neither did I before the last months. I was lucky to be tought by a good photographer, and I used this camera for learning. I've actually learned so much that I'm not going to buy a rebel series meself. I've learned enough in these month to take the step over to the 60D, but enough of that. More about the 500D. The size is nice, even though I ...

I had few dSLR cameras before I bought this one - Canon 300D and 20D. Both were pretty big and bulky. Canon 500D is much smaller and lightweight camera. I like almost everything about it. The battery life is amazing and its really fast auto focus even in low light conditions. Ergonomic controls, but I really miss the wheel that I so got used to in 20D. Problems: I though I would not use the new video recording capabilities in HD, but I see that I do use it. What I don't like about it, that ...

Great consumer DSLR with more capability than its normal user will ever touch. It has a nice size, very usable ISO 6400, good but not great HD video mode, and realizes amazing resolution with the proper exposure and processing. For the prices you can find now it is a great bargain. Put to use the live histogram, DOF preview, and a few other things its competitors were missing and work with the good basics of exposure and fundamentals of composition and you really don't need another APS camera.

guys and galls honoustly i "ve had Nikon for the last 15 yrs but now nikon does not offer a body with same specifications and dimensions so I traded my Nikon D40 for EOS 500D. Size and weight and operation and specs this camera is 5 stars but image quality out of the box I really struggle to get same results from 500D as I got from D40. With everything default EOS is little soft little overexposed where D40 (yes) gave crisp sharp well exposed pics even with kit lens (see my pics in galllery) ...

Having used another brand DSLR (Amateur Level) for one and half years, I acquired the Canon EOS 500D (US Model EOS Rebel T1i) based on a friend's recommendation and reading a lot of reviews. The whole camera including a medium zoom lens weighs 2/3 of the competitor and very easy to maneuver. It does feel less sturdy dur to being less hefty. The Digic 4 processor is excellent and the full 1080 video capability makes this model very cost effective. Have took 300 pictures and so far very good ...

I use a Panasonic FZ50 which I think is a great camera. We also have a Panasonic TZ4 and we recently visited my daughter and her husband who had gotten a Canon 500D. Since both use an SD chip I shot a series of pictures using his Canon and our TZ4, expecting some excitement. Oddly, when we viewed the pictures later on the computer you could not tell which camera the chip had been in. Oh well. Son in law Mike is happy, which is what counts. I'll stick with the Panasonics until I see ...

Upgrading from an EOS 1000F I chose the 500D to move into the digital world. I own the camera since two months and so far am very satisfied. I still do believe that a 35 mm film camera is the best, but in today's world digital photography definitely took over. However it is absolutely necessary to buy high quality glasses in order to unlock the camera's full potential, since the kit-lens is rather limited. As far as build quality is concerned I think the camera is way underrated, as I have ta ...

I am using the Camera now for more than 1 months moving from Nikon D80 which was of course more advanced than the T1I in all terms. However i still see the Rebel T1I a good camera. Image Quality is good with only one problem , which is low details,, Image is exteremly plain with very poor details
