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.
