EOS Rebel T2

Support EOS 35mm SLR Cameras


Easy to Focus, Easy to Shoot
The Rebel T2 gives you a full package of highly sophisticated automatic features that let you tackle even the toughest photographic situations - fearlessly. From the Mode Dial, simply select the Image Zone setting that matches your scene and the Rebel T2 automatically picks the optimal settings. Or choose Creative Zone settings for complete manual control.
The Fastest Autofocus In Its SLR Class
The Rebel T2 superimposes seven focusing points across the viewfinder for tack sharp focus automatically - even when your subject is off center. Or set your own focusing point using the Cross-Key AF Point Selector. You can also choose from three Autofocus Modes - One-Shot AF, AI Focus AF and AI Servo AF - to handle a wide range of subjects and environments with superior precision. The Rebel T2 also gives you the fastest shutter speed in its class - 1/4000 second so you can shoot as rapidly as life demands.<br/> To deliver the perfect exposure that makes unforgettable pictures, the Rebel T2 also has a 35-zone metering system. It's linked to the seven autofocus points so even when you're confronted with complex conditions, like backlight, you'll get superb pictures. To further refine exposure settings, there's an Orientation Detection Sensor that automatically determines the position of the earth and sky in your photo and makes the appropriate adjustments. <br/> 7-Point AF
A Camera that Feels Like It's Made for You
Comfort counts when you're shooting. So the Rebel T2 was equipped with a secure grip made for one-handed operation. Better still, the Shutter Button, Main and Mode Dials, LCD Panel Buttons and the Cross-Key AF Point Selector are all within easy reach. You can even check the camera status in the dark, thanks to the backlit, oversized LCD panel.
Error-Free Operation
When shooting is action-packed, it's not always easy to keep track of all the essentials. That's where the Rebel T2 shines. Its Safety Shutter-release Lock prevents you from shooting if you forget to load film or there is no lens attached. There's also a Camera Shake Warning that sounds when shutter speed is too slow to give you the pictures you want. <br/> Safety Shutter-release Lock
An Unprecedented Level of Flash Control
Equipped with an extra-powerful, super-bright built-in flash and the very latest E-TTL II flash technology, the Rebel T2 delivers new flash precision. Using distance-based information, the new E-TTL II flash metering system automatically analyzes your scene and adjusts for variations in brightness, reflections and framing. This gives your pictures the true-to-life, even illumination that sets them apart from ordinary snapshots.
