Canon T2i Review: Best Still And Video Camera For The Money

What I like best about the Canon T2i is just the plain fact that it’s the both a still and video camera. Why is that great? I don’t have to take two cameras with me!

I just finished a two-camera video shoot at a Renaissance Festival last weekend. Although it was a simple shoot, it required several C-stands, reflectors, grip arms, french flag, two cameras, shotgun mic, tripods, etc. I had a still photographer on the set to take photos of both the talent and the production crew of three people. It was a lot of work just carrying and setting up that equipment, and we were far from inconspicuous.

Next week I’m taking a vacation and I’m just taking along my new Canon EOS Rebel T2i . I’m still getting used to the fact that this lightweight, small, well engineered camera is both a very competent still camera and an outstanding high definition video camera. I’m amazed at the fact that this one camera does it all…and at a price well below $1000. I’m really looking forward to learning more about it which I’ll share with you in future posts.
