We seriously need to open up an Austrian branch of Engadget. After treating us to a titanium iPhone
, the Governator's homeland is now playing host to the first professionally shot 1080p video with the new T2i / 550D
from Canon. Nino Leitner has shot a moody short film with a pre-production unit and his conclusion has been that the video you can obtain from the latest prosumer shooter is indistinguishable
from the output
of the mighty Canon 7D
. High praise indeed, but not altogether unexpected considering the T2i sports an all-new 18 megapixel sensor (that is "very similar" to the 7D's) and has had its 1080p recording upgraded to the requisite 30fps to make it a viable shooting mode. Skip past the break to have a look at his results or visit the source for Nino's in-depth preview. Nikon, you've been put on notice.
