Introduction

Canon has followed up its first video-enabled SLR, the $2700 5D Mark II, with this sub-$1000 model that goes head-to-head against the Nikon D5000. The T1i has the flyweight physique we expect from the Rebel line, but the specs have some heft, including 15-megapixel stills and video in full 1080p HD (versus Nikon's lower-res 720p mode). You might expect Canon, with its camcorder expertise, would outperform video newcomer Nikon. We put this to the test, as the experts from CamcorderInfo.com put the T1i through its video paces and we give still performance our usual scrupulous analysis.
