The T2i is a crop sensor SLR that has a 18-Megapixel CMOS sensor with improved light sensitivity for low-light shooting, a new advanced HD movie mode, and is capable of shooting 3.7 frames per second.
The T2i also features Advanced Live View, a wide-area screen, and and a lighting optimizer that preserves shadow detain in high contrast situations. And of course, the T2i shoots full HD video: 1920×1080 @ 24, 30, and 60 fps, among others.
Videographers: SLR sensors that are run for prolonged times (several minutes), run at high ISO, and sometimes simply randomly will develop “hot pixels”. Each camera is tested before being sent out for any hot or dead pixels, but they still happen during shooting. Check your video in the field! Resting the camera for 15 minutes may clear the issue up, but not always.
