Looking for a great gift idea for someone interested in photography. Here are a few suggestions to help you in your search for a great camera and a great deal.
The Canon EOS Rebel T1i features a 15.1Mp CMOS sensor (similar to the sensor found in the EOS 50D) for detailed, full volume prints, Live View for accurate pre-focusing and editing, continuous burst-rates of up to 3.4 fps, a DIGIC 4 image processor, and a scratch and glare-resistant high-resolution 3″ Clear View LCD that allows for easy 100% image viewing from angles up to 170° off-center from the screen. The Canon EOS Rebel T1i records a choice of full HD 1080p, 720p, and VGA video capture for true high-resolution video that beats or meets the image quality of far costlier pro camcorders. The EOS Integrated Cleaning System combats dust through the use of high-frequency vibrations that shake dust loose from the sensor’s front-mounted IR filter every time you power up and power down. It has an ISO rating from ISO 100 through 3200 in standard mode, and from 6400 to 12,800 in expanded mode.
The D90 viewfinder is amongst the best you’ll find on any APS-C camera and it sits above the highest-resolution screen we’ve yet seen on a camera of this class. The Nikon D90 buttons are well chosen and sensibly positioned, and the two-dial interface is a pleasure to use. (Buyers coming from other systems can even reverse the operation of the meter and dials to make everything that bit more familiar).
