The Canon 500D can record at full-HD widescreen resolution of 1,920x1,080 pixels strangely at 20 frames per second, rather than the conventional 25 or 30 frame per second (fps). This EOS Kiss X3 features a 15MP sensor, better than older Canon series EOS 450D which only have 12MP.

The Canon Rebel T1i shares a few features with the 5D Mark II. It offers Live preview, DiG!C 4, and SDHC media storage. The EOS 500D is also the third Canon EOS model to exclusively use SD and SDHC memory storage instead of CompactFlash. Like the EOS 5D Mark II, video clips are recorded as Quicktime MOV files with H.264/MPEG-4 compressed video and uncompressed PCM audio. The Canon Digital Rebel T1i will be available in April 2009 for around price $800, you can buy it immediately at your nearest camera store or shop dealers everywhere.
