I purchased a T2i about a year ago, primarily as a backup camera. This camera has surpassed all of my expectations. I was thoroughly surprised at the picture quality that this camera was able to produce, even though it is considered just a "consumer-level" camera. I even tried out the video functions recently and was amazed at the quality. Pairing it with a Sigma 17-50 2.8 lens, I was able to create good quality images, even at slightly higher ISO. The 18 megapixels were more than enough for the type of photography I do. Overall, I am thoroughly impressed. Since I also shoot with a  5Dc and a 40D, I may not use this camera as much, but I at least know that it will be more than sufficient if I do need to use it.

This camera is great for both the DSLR newbies and seasoned photographers. I’ve had great experiences with this camera and still one of my favorites. Great pictures and easy to use. Impressive camera for the money. I would recommend this camera to anyone.

As a first time owner of a fairly expensive camera, it took some time to learn the basics of everything. To this day, I still don’t know what to do what, but this camera is a good starter for people. The picture quality is okay, sometimes ends up being blurry but can easily be fixed by switching to another feature. Overall, love this camera.

This was my first camera and has served me very well. Many of the preset modes get the jobs done but the manual mode also allows you to become creative with your shots and ideas. My only complaint is that the auto mode is terrible at choosing the correct ISO/shutter speed. Using auto my photos end up being over exposed and not able to be edited in post processing. When using manual I am able to obtain great shots

Even though there are many models that are newer than my t2i, it still works fantastic.  I remember when i first started taking pictures with it, how surprised I was with the color and picture quality.  I have since bought new lenses that allow me to take fantastic stop action photos and photos in low light. You can never capture enough memories.  The prices isnt extremely cheap for a camera however, the quality and options make it a fantastic investment.  I bought mine at best buy and I bought my lenses at a local camera shop.

Really awesome starter dslr. I've had mine for about 5 years now with heavy use and it is still in great shape. No mechanical issues whatsoever. If you take the time to learn the settings you won't regret it.

I bought this camera two years ago. I have been using it as my main camera. I have no problem with it at all. The material is good. The quality of photos taken from this camera is very good. This camera is the predecessor of T3i (ancestor of T4i, T5i). Because it was released long time ago, so there is no flip display (articulated screen) nor touch screen yet in this model. The image processor is DIGIC 4. But the rest is almost the same with its successors. If you think you don't need those new functions, I would recommend buying it.

I took this photo with my Canon Rebel t2i. Amazing quality photos, easy to use, great for beginners or those with experience, and low price! Can't beat the value of this camera! Canon EOS Rebel T2i

This was the most high definition camera I had used in my life. It lasted a good 6 months with me but unfortunately I lost it at a airport and I couldn't afford to buy a replacement camera. Overall I loved how it made everything look perfect and sharp like a movie scene. It was very easy to use and was very reliable. One day I'll reunite with one if these again.

I've had this camera for years and it's done a great job so far! I definitely recommend if you are just a beginner looking for a good camera to start out with. I would say get a better lens like the 50 mm if you want to try something other than the kit lens!
