Oh boy, I hope this is true. I’m shooting with an XSi, and it’s a great camera, but damn would I like to have me some movie-shooting ability. The T1i was a bad bet for that because it shot at 20FPS, which is ridiculous, but this new T2i allegedly has selectable frame rate modes. 1080p/24? Oh pleeeeeease!
According to Canon Rumors, the T2i is on its way next week and has, in addition to better movie-shooting, the following features:
- Higher-resolution LCD
- Revised body
- New battery and battery grip
But no articulating screen, which personally I am okay with. I’d prefer that in-viewfinder LCD anyway.
