Canon EOS 600D review Ilse Jurriën : June 20th 2011 - 00:00 CET
Canon EOS 600D test photos : In February this year Canon introduced its newest entry-level DSLR camera, the Canon EOS 600D. The compact, lightweight SLR camera has everything on board for capturing beautiful photos as well as Full HD videos. The Canon EOS 600D captures clear colors with a lot of detail, thanks to the 18 Megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor that works together with the 14-bits DIGIC 4 image processor. With the 9-point AF-system, each image is razor sharp; an precision focusing is possible thanks to an extremely sensitive AF-sensor that is centrally placed. With the Canon EOS 600D, action photos can also be shot at a speed of 3.7 images per second, which is ideal for shooting action sports, or moving pets and children.
Canon EOS 600D review
Although the EOS 550D is not the official predecessor to the new EOS 600D, as both will be available for the next while, it is expected that the Canon EOS 600D will take over the EOS 550D`s position. The Canon EOS 600D is the ideal camera for ambitious photographers that are looking for a combination of superior image quality and ease of use. The Canon EOS 600D is at the top of the list with entry level models within the Canon EOS assortment and at the top with the EOS 550D and the new EOS 1100D.
Review Canon EOS 600D SLR camera
The Canon EOS 600D is equipped with a tilting 3" LCD display. Thanks to the hinge on the side, you can shoot from unusual angles, which is ideal for subjects that are low to the ground or above your head. The tilting screen is also easy to use in combination with a tripod. The fact that the Canon EOS 600D is an entry level SLR camera is shown in the Scene Intelligent Auto mode, with which the camera automatically chooses the right settings, so that you can fully concentrate on the most important thing; your photography.
Canon EOS 600D kit lens
The new Canon EOS 600D can also be purchased as a separate camera body, but also in combination with the kit lens EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II. This is an ideal lightweight lens for beginner photographers. In comparison with its predecessor, the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS, this lens is equipped with Canon`s IS system. This system makes it possible to work with 4-stops longer shutter speeds and still make camera shake-free shots, thanks to the built-in image stabilizer. The Canon EOS 600D can also be combined with more than 60 Canon EF-lenses, Speedlite flash and other accessories. The test photos below were shot in combination with the Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II kit lens.
