Speed settings range from ISO 100 to ISO 3200 in whole stop increments and Canon have included 2 high-speed options also, at ISO 6400 and ISO 12800. The camera utilizes a nine-point Autofocus (AF) system and includes Canon’s 3 Live View modes for stills – Quick, Live and Face Detection. The T1i also includes an HDMI output to display images and video directly on HDTVs.

Canon’s Rebel T1i will be available by early May and will be sold in body-only form with battery pack, charger, cables and strap for $799.99. A kit version including an f3.5-5.6 18-55mm IS lens is expected to be priced at $899.99.

the Canon 500D would be a direct competitor with the Nikon D90. Currently, i own an EOS450D and i want to upgrade to 500D so that i can take HD videos.

The video would be great if the Lady really new what she was talking about. We use the Rebel T1i for actually shooting television commercials on a daily basis. We are also using the T21 as well. She needs to more research before making a video like she did.
