My first foray into DSLR I purchased a Sony and felt it limited my ability to use manual settings. I had no other complaints and infact, like that the IS was in the body and saved on cost of lenses. Then I read all the reviews on the Canon T2i/550 and traded in the Sony for the Canon. After almost 3 yearsI have no regrets.
I picked up HD video (although, I think I've used it 3 times) but, I did gain almost full manual control over the camera. My one complaint with this camera is the inability to select anything other than 18mp RAW.
This is a good entry level DSLR and I would recommend the new T4i to anyone looking to move to a DSLR.
Built in flash. When using the shoe the right spring tends to depress and not allow the switch to reset making the buit in flash inoperable.
