My Canon T21 has been all over the world with me - Argentina, China, Mexico, France, Peru, Singapore, Italy, Thailand - and so many more places. Why has my T2i travelled a lot? It's because it delivers impeccable performance. The Canon T2i is, perhaps, one of the finest 'pro-sumer' DSLR cameras you can get without having to pay for the hefty, professional-grade cameras (like the Canon Mark models). Even after four years of use, the processor on this camera is still so fast and the picture quality is sharp. The video capabilities are also very professional. Many call the T21 a Canon 7D in a plastic frame - I concur. I've also used my Canon T2i for my side photography business, one that has earned me a good reputable name among my friends and family. If you're looking for an excellent DSLR, and want to get serious about photography, but don't want to pay a small fortune for one, then the Canon T2i is probably a good match for you.
