Canon T2i and New PowerShotsBy Chris Weiss
Canon released its latest DSLR today: the T2i. Like most other camera releases, it wasn’t alone; four new members of the PowerShot family joined it for a debut.
The T2i is the new top-of-range Rebel DSLR. Designed to bridge “the gap between an entry-level camera and a true pro-sumer camera”, the T2i boasts many advanced features including 9-point autofocus, 63-zone dual-layer metering system, 3.7 fps, ISO of 100- 6400 and a DIGIC 4 imaging processor. Video recording capabilities are impressive as well: 1080p at 24, 25, or 30 fps; 720p at 50 or 60 fps; and stereo microphone input.
The T2i will be available in March for a retail price of $799.
The new PowerShots introduced today were the PowerShot SX210 IS, PowerShot SD3500 IS, PowerShot SD1400 IS and PowerShot SD1300 IS. These point-and-shoots range from 12.1 to 14.1 megapixels and are “designed for consumers seeking a blend of eye-catching style and advanced image capture technology in a compact, easy-to-use form”. The PowerShot SD3500 IS, PowerShot SD1400 IS and PowerShot SD1300 will retail from $199.99 to $329.99 and will hit the market in late February. The SX210 will be available in late March for $349.99.
