Canon EOS Rebel T1i takes Full HD Videos

Now this is going to disappoint those who bought the Canon 50D earlier and paid premium for it — Canon’s new entry level dSLR, the EOS Rebel T1i (commonly known as the Canon EOS 500D), now offers full HD video capture at 30fps.

Video capture using dSLR seems to be the in thing now — the Canon Rebel T1i features 16:9 720p HD video capture at 30 fps as well as a Full HD 1080p video capture at 20 fps, and a third option to record 4:3 standard TV quality (SD) video capture at 640 x 480 pixels and 30 fps. If you have a full set of lenses in your camera bag, you can do a lot of nice video effects with them.

On top of that, the LCD screen is 3″ with Live View functionalities. Add to that the 15.1MP capacity and you’ve got yourself a deal for under $1,000. The kit will sell for $900 while the body at $800. Expect something in the vicinity of Php45,000 when it reaches the Philippines.

Update: Canon Philippines reps don’t have final figure on the price but says it will be available locally by May 2009.
