And if you're looking for a video camera, buying a digital SLR isn't a good idea.

True, unless using it for cinematic applications such as short films, wedding vids, etc. The small DoF and lack of decent AF (you'll have to be in MF most of the time) means using it for family events or your kid's baseball game probably won't work.

Troll? ??? ..

My thinking as well.. But to the op, as there are thousands of very satisfied T2i shooters and from the result I've seen them post I'd say that it's a very capable camera. Maybe one should look at the one yielding the tool before blaming the tool itself. From your white balance comment and your comment about in camera IS you are clearly in need of some time with the literature so that you can better acquaint yourself with what you purchased. Remember, the manual and even sales brochures can be your friend especially before investing in a tool.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

this is worse than a tool review from ken rockwell. hes basically complaining because the t2i doesnt feature alot of consumer bull sh** features, none which really aid for taking pictures. the video on the t2i is good but you have to learn how to use it. so many people use the video because of the wide choice of lenses for dslrs. But seriously if you are looking for in cam IS (stabilization), a flip out screen etc then buy a point and shoot.

Don't feed the troll.
Seriously, I call trolling. Can we just ignore this guy. He's basically saying all the thing we all hate to hear ("I thought this megapixel packed DSLR would suddenly make me amazing" or "this camera sucked, you know the other brands camera is so much better") to the extreme. No way this is real.

The guy admits he knows nothing much about photography but sees it fit to review a camera!
FAIL!

With the T2i as well, Canon has made sure to not make it worth as much as the 7D.

This was my favorite part! Good job OP!

That about sums up my sentiments. It took me a good 3 months to learn how to proficiently use a DSLR, and I'd imagine there's a similar learning curve for video.

I'm curious as to how much DSLR experience the OP has.

Worst first post EVER.......
Only topped by lamest second post EVER.
Maybe the third time is a charm. The Rebels can produce amazing images, if you know how to use them.
If you were looking for video, honestly a video camera will be a lot better

Pretty much it right here.

Maybe it is you, not the camera. If the Olympus is that much "better" why did you even buy a T2i?

It comes down to knowing what in hell your doing in the first place if you want good results.

A look here on the forums T2i picture sample thread shows how great the IQ from this camera can be. A simple Vimeo or You Tube search will bring up countless examples of AMAZING video work done with the T2i, the proof of it's capabilities is everywhere. OP, I really don't think the camera is the problem here....;)
