Here's a question for you:

Video capability aside, is there enough of an improvement over the XSi to justify buying an X1i instead, or are the two pretty close in quality and features?

My boy has an XSi and we're always comparing photos. In my honest opinion the T1i triumphs over the XSi.

I just got mine and have been playing with it this weekend. Compared to my 5Dmk2 it feels like a toy in a good way. I love the light weight and perspective difference 1.6x gives. I am not impressed with the video at 1080p, but testing it at 720p yields results that are hard to distinguish from my 5Dmk2 1080p even when viewed on a 73" TV. I haven't really compared still quality head to head, but will post again when I have more time to work with it. So far, I really like it.

It handles just like the T1i. Same body size and weight, control placement etc.

It seems a bit slower to me, but I can't really tell unless I had the Xsi side-by-side. Focusing seems the same. I don't know what IQ is. It must mean that mine is too low to know. I'm still new to digital.

Sorry about this! I blame my lazy fingers for not taping "image quality"! Thank you for your answer.

Would you attribute this to overall image quality, or specific features in particular?

Subscribed to this thread, the wife wants the T1i. Wonder if she will let me use it as a back up camera?

I'm thinking of getting the T1i for my daughter, hoping to hear positive user reports here.

I would say overall image quality. The T1i is one amazing little machine. Very nice crisp images. Great user controls.

Perhaps one day, when she's no longer a starving-student, she'll return the favor ;)

Here is a post I made when comparing the D90 and the T1i, I didn't want to have to re-type it all LOL

"I have owned both of these fine machines but i like the canon one better. The high iso at 3200 and 6400 are better than the Nikon D90 and the video quality is nicer at 720p. The D90 did not even have 1080 as an option. This second option looks nice on the Canon, as long as you hold relatively still and your subject does not move too much (20 fps :/) I used the T1i with my 70 - 200 L and 17 - 40 L and a 50 1.4 on its first real outing and it was wonderful. I ended up returning the D90 a few months ago because I had spent something like 2000 dollars to get it and its kit lens 18 -105 VR, the 70 - 300 VR and the 50 1.8. By returning it I was able to exchange it for L glass for my 30D at the time, and it was much better even without the video the D90 had. Now that I have sweet video on the Canon side I bought the T1i and I am so happy that I did not end up going full on with the D90. I think this screen is wonderful and the live view shooting helps a lot more than I thought it could when I did not have the option on my 30D.

In conclusion I think you should go T1i because you can get very nice quality videos, very nice high iso performance, and pretty good battery life. I took something like 380 pictures today at the zoo, alot of them using live view, and about 20 - 30 minutes of video and the battery still showed half full. I also spent a lot of time reviewing those photos on the great screen. If you want more battery life, buy a second battery :P Buy lots of memory cards though, I went through 8 GB today to the last 5 mb jpeg, after I stopped taking RAW to get more room."

I don't suppose you have any RAW high ISO images that could be downloaded by any chance? I'd love to get a chance to examine 800ISO on up images from a T1i.

Thanks!

Jim
