canon-rebel-t1i-235x141Gadgets and Gizmos haven’t given you keen photographers any real news for a little while, but that hasn’t been an oversight on our part we have just been waiting for something extra special that we think will really take your fancy….. And here it is, introducing the Canon Rebel T1i EOS 500D DSLR.

So what does the Canon Rebel T1i EOS 500D DSLR have that other cameras don’t have? We here you ask, well for a start Canon have packed this DSLR camera with as many functions and improved specification as possible, in brief; 15.1 megapixels, DIGIC 4 image processor, variable shooting modes, extended ISO range up to ISO 12800, LCD monitor 3.0” TFT, 1080p & 720p HD Video recording (offering 20fps & 30fps respectively), recording up to 30 mins (or 4GB), wide view, DOF preview, LCD live view angle, 3.4 frames per second burst shooting, auto rotation, orientation sensor, auto lighting, external flash and auto pop-up flash, playback mode USB connectivity HDMI type C video out, direct printing, lithium-Ion 7.4v rechargeable battery, mic on front and speaker on rear, dust reduction, firmware upgrades, enhanced functionality with 13 custom functions allowing for 39 settings, 25 languages.

With an expected RRP price tag of £870 for the body only it certainly doesn’t come cheap, add the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens and the price rises to just shy of the £1,000 mark and if you wanted to add the EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens then the price rockets to somewhere in the region of £1,400. With a price tag like that you will most certainly be more than a ‘wham bam thank you mam’ happy snapper, but if you are a keen photographer or somebody who just likes to have the best that you can afford then the Canon Rebel T1i EOS 500D DSLR is for you – go on, bring out the rebellious side!
