The Canon T2i comes with HD video capability and direct printing functionality that enables the camera to be connected via USB2 or HDMI cable to your printer or TV. Printing directly from the camera is a simple two click process and the full 1080 high definition video will look fantastic on your TV screen.

The Rebel T2i DSLR camera uses a dual-layer sensor, which measures light, color and luminosity of your surroundings. This sensor boasts 63 zones, which goes a long way to eliminating exposure and focusing errors so that you can almost guarantee a clear, perfectly exposed image every time.
Whether your focus is on a setting sun or on your child’s determined face as he steps up to bat, you’ll get the best shot possible because the Canon Rebel T2i DSLR camera has a 9-point autofocus system. This system uses a grid with center points that you can choose to focus the subject from front to back automatically, or you can chose to manually select your focal point; using the 9 points for a group would ensure that the subjects would be in sharp focus whatever their position and using the manual select option in conjunction with a wide aperture such as f5.6 could assist with subject separation; this looks great as the subjects appears to stand out in the frame.
