Yeah, my friend keeps recommending it to me and even people from this site is like it's a good starter. I haven't picked one up yet, but from the buzz it has to be worthy.

Yeah man no doubt, i've owned the camera for roughly 4 months now and its definitely a banger, the full hd video recording is a stand out and the quality of the shots taken are rather crisp. Definitely the best bang for buck camera out there as of now

Ive had mine for about a year and a half. Its definitely a great starter camera and there much cheaper than when I got mine too. I suggest getting one and using it to its full potential, then upgrading as I will most likely do next year. You will learn that its really the your creativity and the lenses that make significant differences in your photos. Lenses are expensive though..

Yes it's from the starter line and being 2 generations old it'll be cheaper

I've got some sample photos that I took, might be selling my body in the coming weeks. But remember it's not the camera it's the lens.

Thanks man, none of those were with the kit lens I ditched that thing as fast as I could. A lot of those were shot with the Tokina 11-16 f/2.8 but that's as much or more $ than the t2i itself. If I were you, I would pick up a used t2i body and a Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 non-VC for your first walk-around versatile lens. You can find one of those for about $425 new, but trust me it it's easily worth the price, your pictures will be sharper off the bat plus you'll have better low light capabilities. After that maybe think about picking up a 50mm 1.8, they're about 90 bucks and are super sharp and great for portraits. If you can afford the 1.4 I'd get that, but it's 3x the money. (I used the 1.4 for the middle three pictures). If you have any other questions feel free to message me.

Go body only. Don't bother with the kit lens they are shit. The tokina 11-16 is an amazing lens. I want one so bad but it doesn't have manual aperture control smh

Comes with a $75 rebate, and it is completely worth the money, you'll be really glad you got it once you see how sharp the images are

No. They use the same sensor. The T3i has a flip out screen and that's about the differences.

the t3i has a built in wireless flash capability too, not sure of any other differences, but dont underestimate the power of the articulating lcd screen

t2i is a great camera, the kit lens is fine to start out with if you want a versatile lens
if you are fixed in taking a particular style then get the lens that gives you that effect

Definitely a good camera. Invest in your glass more than the body.

canon t2i over the t3i/t4i only because you should be spending your money on glass instead of unnecessary performance upgrades on the body.
