Canon announced on March 25, 2009 its new EOS 500D also known as the Rebel T1i DSLR (digital SLR). The 500D sports a 15.1MP APS-C CMOS sensor that can also capture HD movies. ISO can be shifted all the way up to 12800 for when you want to photograph in the dark and don’t mind most of it ending up grainy. Images are processed by Canon’s DIGIC 4 processor. The LCD, which is the same one used on the more expensive 5D Mark II ($2999 at Amazon), on the back is 3.0″ with a 920,000 pixel count. The LCD can be used as a viewfinder with real-time image display capability.


DIGIC 4 allows you to take pictures at 3.4fps. And you can keep on taking those JPEGs all the way up to 170 of them. I shoot in RAW, do you? If you do then you get up to a decent 9 RAW frames at 3.4fps. For everything you wanted to know about the 500D in terms of specifications, head on over to DP Review. Amazon also has put up a product page.
