The Canon EOS Rebel T1i (starting at $629, Amazon) is just barely out of our price range. One feature you'll find on this camera that's practically nonexistent in other cheap DSLRs is the ability to record HD video. In a Canon EOS Rebel T1i review, CNET comments approvingly about the quality of the video, especially when recorded at 720p at 30 frames per second. Hundreds of users have posted Canon EOS Rebel T1i reviews on Amazon, with the vast majority giving the camera a big thumbs-up. Users love the photo quality, according to Rebel T1i reviews, and say it's a good choice for beginning DSLR users.
The specs on the Canon EOS Rebel T1i are fairly similar to those on the cheaper Canon EOS Rebel XS. The T1i has an APS-C-size CMOS sensor, but it also has 15-megapixel resolution, 5MP more than the Canon EOS Rebel XS. The Rebel T1i also records HD video: You can capture 1080p video at 20 fps or 720p video at 30 fps. The Rebel T1i also has a wider ISO range -- 100 to 3200 -- than the Rebel XS. The Rebel T1i can snap your shots at shutter speeds from 1/4000 of a second to 30 seconds and features a 3.4 fps continuous shooting speed.
If you're in the market for a good beginner digital SLR that also includes HD video recording, then it may be worth it to you to splurge on the Rebel T1i. Its extra-high resolution will also get the attention of shutterbugs who want as much detail as they can get in their photos.
