For those who want HD video but can’t afford the Canon 5D Mark II, Canon just announced the new Canon EOS Rebel T1i or the Canon 500D.
I don’t want to bore you with the details, but here are some important specs that you should know:
- 15 megapixel
- 1080p HD Video at 20fps (30 fps for 5D Mark 2)
- SD/SDHC card
- Live View
- Available May 2009; Price at around $800

In other news, Canon also announced the new Canon 270EX Flash. It’s a small flash with tilt features and it’s meant for EOS and PowerShot cameras.
I’m not really looking to get the 500D even if I want video.
Plus, I’d probably wait for a year or 2 before I get the video feature in an DSLR. The new Speedlite 270EX Flash is nice though because it’s lightweight and perfect for traveling. Might just get it so that I can leave my Canon Speedlite 580 EX II when I travel. 🙂
