Thus, the new model makes the leap to the 18 megapixel CMOS sensor hand of maintaining its APS-C size and focal length multiplier factor of 1.6 x. The same applies to the image processor DIGIC IV, although in this case increase both the available range of sensitivities (from 100 to 6400 ISO, with a force value of 12,800 ISO) and shutter speed (3.7 frames per second) .
Also the measuring system of 63 zones iFCL that Canon released the EOS 7D is now among the benefits of the EOS Rebel T2i. Less fortunate has been the focus system, accurate to 9 points already wearing his predecessor.
