Canon’s latest DSLR puts a lot of the features found on the midrange EOS 7D into a compact, entry-level EOS Rebel body. The new EOS Rebel T2i features essentially the same image sensor (albeit with just one DIGIC 4 processor instead of the dual DIGIC 4 processors of the higher-end Canons), ISO range, metering features and video capabilities as the 7D in a much smaller body for about half the price.
