TonjaThe Canon EOS Rebel T1i Digital slr camera body encompasses all the latest features of a Canon Rebel entry level camera. The Canon T1i looks the same as the XSi, but if you look closely you will see the differences.

The Front
Let’s start with the center of the camera face. The Rebel T1i is compatible with the over 60 Canon lens currently available. This allows for plenty of flexibility and development as a photographer. Behind the lens, Canon placed a CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) sensor. This 15.1 megapixel sensor can be cleaned with the built in EOS Integrated Cleaning System as found in previous models. This Integrated Cleaning System uses vibrations to remove the dust from the sensor. To the right- side of the lens, is where the lens release button is located. Above the lens, is the built in pop up flash that the camera uses for auto focusing and as a light source. When the flash is closed, you can place an addition lens in the hot shoe that is on top of the flash. Moving to the side of the lens, above the EOS label you will find a microphone. The Canon T1i shoots full HD video with sound or you can capture video in SD or HD quality. On the opposite side of the lens above the grip, is where the red eye reduction lamp, self-timer and the receiver for the optional wireless remote are located. The shutter release is also found on this side above the grip.

The Back
The large 3 inch LCD screen displays the menu, picture playback and live view mode. The viewfinder is above the LCD. Between the viewfinder and the LCD, is the sensor that turns the LCD off when the camera is placed up to the face. The viewfinder displays the photo shooting information on the bottom of the view. If you need to adjust the focus on the viewfinder use, the diopter correction knob that is found on the upper right-side of the viewfinder. The left of the viewfinder are the buttons that activate the menu and change the information that is displayed on the LCD. Moving to the right side of the viewfinder is where you will find a majority of the function buttons. In the far right corner is the AF/AE button and the focus point selection. Both buttons are used to zoom in or out. Below the two buttons is the speaker, so you can hear your video when played back on the camera. As you work down the right side of the LCD screen, the first button is the AV/Exposure compensation button. The next button is the print button; this button is used during the shooting of video and live view. The navigation pad is used to look through menus and some functions. Below the navigation pad you will find the playback button and to the right of the playback button is the delete button.

The Canon T1i is packed with plenty of functions but is well designed not to overwhelm the photographer.
