{gear} Canon's entry-level DSLR with HD video

Canon introduced the Rebel T1i today, another step in the obsoleting of camcorders. Headlines: 15MP CMOS sensor, HD video, 920,000 dot monitor, Digic 4 processor, all for $800, body only. (The camera also has Canon's sadly lacking 9-point autofocus system, alas.) In all, it looks like a really terrific lower-cost alternative to the $3,000 Canon 5d Mark II if you're ready to jump into video.

Lengthy details and the official Canon announcement are readily available, but dpreview has an extensive hands-on review.
