    Canon Rebel T1i leak? 15MP DSLR with 1080p video - SlashGear

    Yup, 15mp with 1080 HD video capture capability (20fps) and also the ability to capture at 720 (30fps).

    It looks like an amazing camera for the money.

    They yanked the video but not before someone captured it and posted it. I guess Canon hasn't formally announced it just yet.

    ho hum...

    It's a 15mp XSi with video and can finally shoot high ISO, although not that useful. 12000 on the APS sensors looks like dog ****.

    No such thing. The higher the better. Why do you think flash brackets exist.

    mmmmmmhmmmmm btw its official now

    Canon EOS Digital Rebel T1i now official

    to repost a comment I made there, if Canon dropped the Rebel moniker, this would be pronounced "tee-one-eye", which I'm sure would have some folks going into Best Buy and asking for a Canon Tijuana. How does Canon come up with these model names anyways? :p

    If it was in the wrong position, please move it...

    hmm I wonder - after all the debates about the 50D going to 15mp and the issuse people said about that camera (no real noise improvement over the 40D and a need for high quality lenses to retain details due to stronger noise removal processes) I wonder what the chances are of the rebel having any better ISO performance than its former models.
    It certainly looks like a good upgrade to someone on a limited budget who is perhapse using a 400D (or older) and some with a 450D who want video might move up also.
    It also makes the 50D stand out as more of a missing release in the canon lineup since it is now the only new DSLR released by canon without the video mode (yes some of us do care about video mode).
    Spot metering is also something that I think is a great addition to a lower level camera - whilst its not for everyone its certainly something that has many uses and applications once learnt.

    The release is interesting and I wonder if this means we will see a second release in the middle ground crop sensor cameras (a 60D with video?) but I will wait and see how this camera performs with its noise control - the 50D has proven to be decent but not without some concerns and that is a level above this camera.

    I agree the T1i is an interesting release. It really puts it at the top of the entry level market for now.

    I agree, the 50D is looking more and more like a stop-gap release to quickly modernize the 40D. The rumored 60D improvements have me pretty excited.

    That would be my concern too, 15mp on a crop sensor is definatly pushing it. It's possible they've tweaked it but I doubt it given it's not a 50D replacement.

    Sadly I think people (who don't need the video aspect) will buy it on the back of 15mp is better and I would think it's going to be worse in general performance than the XSi... and where the heck is the top panel LCD?

    Really bugs me that manufacturers are missing them out, the K200D has it and it's invaluable, why can't others put it in?
