    We haven't actually! It's called the Canon 500D in Europe and a good thorough review telling you more than you want to know is here Canon EOS 500D / Digital Rebel T1i Review: 1. Introduction: Digital Photography Review

    Basically though it's superb. I can't fault it at its price point. Played with it, loved it and if you've seen HD movie mode from it, bye bye camcorder.

    Great buy IMHO

    I feel like I'm always the disagreeable one but anyway...

    The sensors in the camcorders, especially consumer ones, tend to be positively tiny v SLRs. Then the lenses you can get for the Dslrs are amazing v. the built in camcorder ones. The low light capability of that canon T1i with a cheapy 50mm f1.8 lens, well let's just say wow.

    They don't take up any more memory on a DSLR than they would on a modern HD camcorder so that's not really such an issue any more.

    Not that it's all rosy, some things like autofocus during filming tend to be better on the camcorders but for quality of video, you'd have to pay way more than what you'd pay for that canon before you came anywhere close with a camcorder.
