I wonder if thers something in CF vs SDHC. They share the same reliability, speed, space, price?

This news blew my mind,this 550 costs half and,as far as I am concern, it has the same video functions and specifications comprared to 7D. It only lacks some features in stillmode.

Sweet news. I will probably be buying 4 of these to supplement my current dslrs.
1080p24. Thats a no brainer for me.

With it being so cheap, i plan on using these as my 'lens cap' for my lens. (dead serious)

Canon has been changing the market extremely quickly! Its gonna be hard for other companies to keep up and compete.
(still waiting on a Sony dslr that can shoot video...)

Note: there doesnt seem to be a dedicated C1/C2/C3 feature as on the 7D.
Might be something to look for if you plan on switching between video/stills often.

I think for us video specialists (who don't have the 7D yet, or are saving for a 2nd cam) this is the million-dollar-question, or in fact, the $800-or-so question. $800+ is good money for other investments such as a new lens or other goodies!

Not a stupid question, and the answer is: not much that I can see.

The main difference with the 7D (besides still photo features) is the body & build quality... tough, weather sealed, mag. alloy vs. much lighter polycarbonate on the T2i.

manual shutter & apperture :D

Check this video (referred to before) around minute 3. The Canon rep says shutter speed and apperture can be set manually.

YouTube - Canon EOS 550D / Rebel T2i hands-on video

To me that sounds like we got the full monty.

I'm happy I waited with the 7D purchase. I want that 1m pix screen :D

Tom

PS: Sorry, got a bit overexcited there. Saw the previous Youtube reference also stated the manual control.

This T2i really challenges their own products in a lot of ways which makes things interesting. For amateurs, a lot of incentive is lost in buying the 7D. Is it just me or has Canon's production cycle ramped up recently? This has to be the news Canon's Tim Smith was dying to tell us but couldn't!

That information (plus a lot more) is in the press release, which is the first post of this thread. US dealers in early March.

That's not true, the 7D will blow this thing away for stills I bet (in many different aspects from actual image quality to features, custom functions, etc.). But most people on this board could care less about stills anyway. I wonder about high ISO performance vis a vis the 7D and 5D2, and any differences in jelly/aliasing/moire -- those are the real questions to be answered no doubt.

Two obvious points:

This is a now brainer 2nd (3rd) camera to the 5DII. Crop factor increases the range of your existing glass as well as additional camera.

Canon can't possibly wait past it's release date to give their $3000 camera something more than 30p.

Aliasing & moriť effects all of Canon DSLR cameras due to downscaling and lowpass filter strengths. Even in still shots at 100% you can see moriť rainbows if you look close.

The sample images on dpreview from the 550D show no signs of this.

Interesting that the 550D only has one LowPass filter, opposed to the dual filters in the 5DMk2. This could be a double filter glued together, but the specification makes no mention of this.

Trying to locate a 7D/1DMK4 exploded sensor assembly to confirm.

Scrub my last hopeful comment, just looked at the 1080p youtube clip, aliasing still there.
