    The T2i wins because it has a better song attached to it. :)

    Not to get off topic, but how do you like your T2i? I've been thinking about getting one.

    The T2i is a steal... really love, just got as a backup for my 5D but the quality of this camera and what it can do is comparable to the 5DMkII.

    Both look great, but the Canon beats it by quite a bit.

    I'm actually talking about the video shooting on 720P, not the pictures. I know the quality of the photos are nowhere near the t2i, if you read the thread title carefully, im comparing the videos created on the iPhone and the canon t2i edited with the 2 versions of the iMovie.

    Im just trying to point out how good the quality of the videos on the iPhone 4 and what it can do to create consumer-level videos.

    You don't have to put a smartass comment on the thread... PLS READ IT FIRST!!!

    okay dude. your thread is still a fail. that HD on the friggin iPhone 4 is way different than t2i quality. this entire thread is ridiculous.

    here is a downsized 720P quality video I shot with my t2i

    Dude....again, Read the thread carefully!!!! There is nowhere here in this thread that says that the iPhone is better than the T2i. Like I said, the t2i has a better quality because of it's higher sensor and the lens it uses, I'm just stating the fact that the iphone's HD quality and the iMovie app now has the capability of producing decent consumer-level videos.

    Lets make this a bit more interesting. Since you have posted a link of your T2i videos. Lets do a comparison on your HD videos againts a video shot entirely on an iPhone4 and edited on it.

    Shot using the Iphone4 and edited thru the iMovie app
    http://vimeo.com/12819723


    Comparing this video with your T2i+Kit Lens 720p video. I say the quality of the whole video from the iPhone wins. And your video is even color graded comparing to a raw video that came straight from the iPhone.

    Overall, the Canon T2i has better quality but it depends on how you use it. Like if you compare your so-called videos to the iPhone video ob the link above, sorry dude.. yours does not even cpmpare. But if you use your Canon T2i properly and use it to its full capability (such as using 180degree rule, using quality lenses) then it will always be better. But Im willing to bet that the iPhone-created video above will beat your HD videos till you learn how to use your HDSLR.

    I also have a Canon T2i and I love it heck i even like it better than the Canon 7D, but not with my 5DMKII. And believe me, i know what this camera can do.

    that video quality is not that good.... I would not use that as a reference to boost up the t2i

    Agreed, based on that video the iPhone clearly wins which to be honest shouldn't be the case.

    With a Canon EF lens, the T2i costs about $840. The iPhone 4? $199.

    This is a bit of a stupid comparison that puppyfightclub is making.

    I mean, ok... let's put some perspective on this if you REALLY want to compare oranges with, well, Apples (nyuk nyuk)...

    The Panavision Genesis HD blows away every single DSLR on the market. It has a full-frame (equal to Super 35mm) 12.4 megapixel CCD sensor (5760x2160).

    The iPhone 4 and Canon T2i both shoot in pathetically-compressed H.264, with 4:2:0 chroma subsampling, whereas the Genesis HD shoots in full-bandwidth 4:4:4:4 HDCAM.

    The iPhone 4 in particular uses 1.5 Mbps bandwidth, whereas the Genesis HD uses the Sony SRW1 Digital VTR with a Dual Link SDI at 880 Mbps (about 4.5 megabytes per frame).

    The Genesis HD premiered at the NAB conference and ASC Cinematographers could not tell it apart from Super 35mm, with identical colorimetry and sensitometry. Because it was built from the ground up to be a cinema camera with a single RGB CCD, it doesn't require digital lenses that get prism-split for the RGB sensors which introduce chromatic aberrations. Therefore, it can mount all standard Panavision prime and zoom lenses to achieve identical Depth Of Field characteristics at every theoretical F-stop value.

    Therefore, the Panavision Genesis HD wins.

    Oh, and by the way, Panavision does not sell their cameras... but you can rent the body (lenses extra) for $4000 per day.
