The Journey Continues.
Canon's new EOS Rebel T1i is packed with features, both refined and new. In
addition to its admirable performance with an all-new 15.1 Megapixel Canon CMOS
sensor, DIGIC 4 Image Processor, a 3.0-inch Clear View LCD with anti-reflective
and scratch-resistant coating, and compatibility with the EOS System of lenses
and Speedlites, the EOS Rebel T1i adds remarkable Full HD video capture at
resolutions up to 1920 x 1080. An HDMI port allows for quick connections to high
definition TVs and monitors for easy viewing of your stills and video. The
entire operation is simple and easy even if you are a beginner. You'll have
uncompromised EOS Digital performance with power and flexibility right in the
palm of your hand.
New 15.1-megapixel CMOS sensor with DIGIC 4 Image Processor
Canon's CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) sensor captures images
with exceptional clarity and tonal range and offers the most pixels in its
class. It offers many of the same new technologies as used by Canon's
professional cameras to maximize each pixel's light gathering efficiency. Its
APS-C size sensor creates an effective 1.6x field of view (compared to 35mm
format). Canon's DIGIC 4 Image Processor dramatically speeds up all camera
operations for intuitive operation and offers improvements in both fine detail
and natural color reproduction. It works in concert with the EOS Rebel T1i's
image sensor to achieve unprecedented levels of performance in all lighting
14-bit A/D Conversion
With the EOS Rebel T1i, analog to digital signal conversion is executed by a
14-bit processor, which generates digital data with incredibly smooth tones. A
feature that originally appeared in top-of-the-line pro digital SLR cameras, the
14-bit conversion gives incredibly smooth transitions from light to dark colors
with far less risk of "banding." A sky at sunset is a perfect example. With this
rich 14-bit gradation, the EOS Rebel T1i offers RAW images of the highest
quality that can be processed with Canon's Digital Photo Professional software.
Even JPEG files, which are always finished at 8-bits per channel, use the full
14-bit conversion initially to generate the best possible color and tonal
Full HD video capture at 1920 x 1080 resolution
The EOS Rebel T1i shoots brilliant video, even in full high definition. By
simply selecting Movie mode on the EOS Rebel T1i's mode dial, the camera's
3.0-inch LCD lights up, and it's ready to go. Shooting is at a frame rate of 30
fps when shooting SD or HD quality video (640 x 480 and 1280 x 720 pixels,
respectively) and at a frame rate of 20 fps in Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels)
recording. Sound is recorded through the camera's built-in microphone. Playback
modes are simple to access, and all Live View AF features can be used in
Live View Function for stills and video
With Live View Function on the EOS Rebel T1i, you can enjoy nearly every camera
function available in normal shooting, all with the convenience of composing on
the camera's brilliant 3.0-inch LCD monitor. You can zoom in and navigate the
composition and there's even a grid overlay for architectural shots. Live View
focusing modes include Quick mode, Live mode and Face Detection AF mode and
these are easily selectable through the convenient Live View Function menu.
Wide range ISO setting 100-3200
The EOS Rebel T1i features a greatly expanded ISO range that makes shooting
possible in situations previously impossible without flash. With an expanded
setting to ISO 3200 (ISO expansion: 6400, 12800), along with the DIGIC 4 Image
Processor's improved noise-reduction technology, your creative possibilities are
nearly endless. Combine the EOS Rebel T1i with one of Canon's EF/EF-S lenses
with Optical Image Stabilizer and watch your shooting possibilities expand even
3.0-inch Clear View LCD (920,000 dots/VGA) monitor
Auto Lighting Optimizer for superior highlight-shadow control
The EOS Rebel T1i has a 3.0-inch high resolution LCD monitor that features
920,000 dots/VGA for far more detail than previous Rebel-series LCDs. It's the
same screen found on professional models such as the EOS 5D Mark II. A number of
features enhance usability: an anti-reflective and water-repellant coating
provides a clearer and more smudge-resistant surface and screen brightness can
be adjusted in 7 steps in accordance with ambient light.
The EOS Rebel T1i's Auto Lighting Optimizer is yet another image-quality tool
that comes to the rescue in tricky lighting conditions. It can actually lighten
dark areas of a scene while ensuring that bright areas maintain tonal detail.
It's available in all shooting modes, including P, Tv, Av and Manual.
Creative Auto goes a step beyond auto allowing control
Especially for beginners looking to expand their photographic horizons, the EOS
Rebel T1i offers Creative Auto mode. While basic settings are based on full
automatic operation, shooting guides on the LCD screen enable you to make
corrections based on simple to follow guidelines. In essence, with Creative Auto
mode, you can learn about photography while taking stunning photographs.
Compatible with over 60 Canon EF/EF-S lenses and most EOS System
EOS Rebel T1i is compatible with all Canon lenses in the EF and EF-S lineup,
ranging from ultra-wide angle to super telephoto lenses. Canon lenses employ
advanced optical expertise and micron-precision engineering to deliver
unprecedented performance in all facets of the photographic process. Special
optical technologies, such as Aspherical, ultra-low dispersion, or fluorite
elements are featured in the universally acclaimed L-series lenses, and Canon's
Optical Image Stabilizer technology is featured in select lenses, including the
EF-S 18-55mm IS lens bundled with the EOS Rebel T1i, to minimize the effect of
camera shake. With Canon lenses, you can truly maximize the quality and
performance of the EOS camera.
The EOS Rebel T1i features Canon's acclaimed E-TTL II flash metering system.
With any EX-series Speedlite, E-TTL II provides reliable flash output whether
shooting fill-in flash pictures in sunlight or using flash in total darkness.
With E-TTL II, the exact same 35-zone metering sensor used for measuring ambient
light is also used for flash metering--giving even finer metering command of the
image area. If you prefer a broader area for flash metering, there's a menu
setting to change to "Average" flash metering--where the entire 35-zone area is
measured evenly for flash exposure.
Canon EOS Digital Solution Disk (Version 20)
The EOS Rebel T1i comes bundled with a Canon EOS Digital Solution Disk, which
features powerful software programs designed to extend the EOS experience to the
computer. These include Canon's EOS Utility (Version 2.6), Digital Photo
Professional (Version 3.6), ZoomBrowser EX for Windows (Version 6.3),
ImageBrowser for Macintosh OS X (Version 6.3), the Picture Style Editor (Version
1.5), PhotoStitch (version 3.2), WFT Utility (version 3.3). Each application is
designed to perfect the captured images and streamline the digital workflow.
