I went to Best Buy and played around with the t1i and the 50d. The overall feel of the 50d is much better for me then the t1i. I took my CF card and took some ISO3200 shots with the 50d and they arent too bad, very usable with noise ninja.

I forgot that the t1i uses an SD card, I will have to go back later this week with an SD card. Im curious as to how the t1i video shoots.

Yes i did the same thing 2 days ago, i tested held both the t1i and the 50d. The 50d did feel better. I was giving it a lot of thought on why the t1i didn't feel as good in my hands as i expected b/c of my small hands. I think i know what the problem was.. it didn't have a grip! This helps out soo much. It feels a lot more balanced. One thing i liked about both cameras was the quality of the 3 inch screen, Reviewing pictures was wow

Yeah, that was very noticeable coming from my small low res XT screen, I was amazed haha.

I could probably use the XXd without a grip. But with the XXXd, they are too small for my hands, I absolutely need a grip on them.

I've put a grip on my t1i. It has helped a lot, but it's still not the same.
Something I'm reminded of every time I pick up my film EOS-A2

I got mine about a week ago, here is a link to a few of the images I've taken so far with it. Note tha the white and purple flowers are taken with a USM 28-135 rather than the EF-S 18-55 kit lens. All other shots are taken with the 18-55 untouched. Note also that I am an SLR rookie. I love this camera, as I get to know it better I exepct some fantastic shots. My future father in law (loaned me the 28-135 as well) has the XTi and just loves this camera. He is an avid advnaced amateur and considers it the best "entry level" DSLR he hs seen for what it is worth.

i might get a t1i when the prices drop next year.

it's burdonsome to walk around with a 5D2 when you're just trying to get simple shots of the kids at the park. I often have to take the grip off because because with big L zooms there's a lot of weight around your neck that's just begging to swing into the swing set post. Makes me regret selling my ol' XSi. Funny how the other side's grass always seems greener no matter what side you're on. Maybe it's just best to have one foot planted in each side. ;)

But i don't doubt the IQ of the EOS rebels. I have some wicked sick pictures with incredible sharness, detail and tonal range churned out by the XSi. I can attribute part of this to photoshop and tools such as NIK filters. But mostly Canon has done a phenomenal job at perfecting their digital imaging technologies.

Shot a video comparison showing use of manual zoom and autozoom with the t1i I used the noisy non usm nifty fifty for both videos.

These are straight from SD card and may take some time to dowload if your somewhere other than the west coast hopefully it'll be ok.

Manual Focus:

Would the autofocus noise not be picked up as well if you had an external hot shoe mic?

I did that right after I ordered the T1i and read a bunch of 50D vs. T1i threads :) The 50D does feel a lot better in the hands, I have not had a chance to try out a grip on the T1i. Does it really make it feel that much more balanced? Grips are so expensive.

Off topic though

Someone posted in the Rebel T1i / 500D Users Stand UP! thread what I thought was a great idea, that we merge the two Threads, I started the above thread :p, and there is a lot of good pictures and post in it, then there is this thread with a lot of good pictures and post in it as well. So can the two come together or do we just have two dedicated threads? It would be awesome if everyone came to the same spot and shared photos and thoughts. The more the marrier you know!

The problem is there is no audio/mic input jack on the T1i. You could record sound using an audio recorder, but you'd have to sync it in post.

Grips don't have to be that expensive. Mine is a Phottix from ebay / hong kong. I paid $70 shipped with 2 extra batteries. So far it's working fine. Looks and functions just like the canon one, even came with canon instructions which I thought odd.

Here's the one I got from the guy I got it from:
