While it's not confirmed yet, rumors are spreading that Canon might announce a new digital SLR model, the EOS Rebel T2i, as soon as next week.

A follow-up to the Canon Rebel T1i, Canon Rumors is reporting (based on an unknown source) that the T2i will apparently have an improved LCD screen with higher resolution, a new battery and a customizable FPS setting for video recording. There might even be a new shape for the latest model in the traditional Rebel series. How rebellious.

However, no one seems convinced on the new SLR coming with an articulating screen.

[Note: The camera pictured above is the Canon Rebel T1i, not the rumored T2i.]

  • Canon Needs to Rethink How They Name Their Cameras

    T2i vs T1i vs XT vs whatever: how is any mere mortal supposed to remember what is more recent?

      You can just go by the actual model numbers instead of the these alphanumeric suffixes. ie: 350D, 400D, 450D, 500D (Rebel XT, XTi, XSi, XT1i respectively). Then it's simple: bigger number = more recent.

      The Asian market names are pretty confusing too (where they use the "Kiss" brand instead of "Rebel") - but those model numbers are always the same regardless of market-specific branding.

    I don't care what it does. I will never buy a camera called "Rebel". No disrespect for Dixie, but it just sounds so ... well, amateurish! Can't they name it like the European version?

      I just purchased a Canon Rebel T1i. The "Rebel"
      name sounded like a camera for risk takers and
      greatly influenced my buy decision!
