The camera also shoots full HD video however a minor issue with the T2i is that if you shoot video for long amounts of time it tends to overheat and then shut down. This has since been fixed in newer versions of the camera starting with the T3i but if you are just shooting short clips you will be fine. If you plan on shooting longer segments, shows, movies -- I would go with something a bit newer.
The battery lasts awhile. I usually have to switch it out after 2-3 days of only shooting occasionally.
I took a photography workshop and the pro photographer gave this as a tip: you don't have to keep buying new cameras. The most important things to upgrade are your lenses.
I use my DR pretty often for a variety of shot types and this rebel conquers it all. Image quality is crisp and the video is seamless and auto focuses fairly accurately. The camera is also pretty lightweight as far as DSLRs go, which is a relief when doing long shoots. The icing on the cake, however, is the price. With newer models having been released, the drop in price makes this a fantastic camera for anyone.
