The new Canon EOS 600D features an 18 megapixel APS-C sized CMOS sensor with 14-bit DIGIC IV processing. The ISO range of 100-6400 is extendable to 12800 for low light shooting, while the 63-zone iFCL metering is the same as that used in the EOS 7D. A 9-point AF system can track moving subjects, for capture at up to 3.7 frames per second.

The Canon EOS 600D (or Rebel T3i as its called in the USA) is capable of shooting full 1080p movies, while a dedicated movie button enables switching between stills and video instantly. A new Movie Digital Zoom function crops the sensor from 3x to 10x for high level zooming while still maintaining full HD quality, while Video Snapshot mode shoots video in 2, 4 or 8 second clips, which are saved to a Video Snapshot Album for easy editing later.

A 3inch high resolution (1.04 million dot) vari-angle 3:2 ratio ClearView LCD screen enables users of the Canon EOS 600D to shoot from high or low angles with ease, or by flipping the side-mounted hinge outwards so the screen faces forwards, to photograph or video themselves . The screen has a smudge resistant coating and three anti-reflection coatings to make it easier to see in all conditions.

A new Scene Intelligent Auto mode analyses each scene, identifies the type of subject being photographed and then sets the appropriate subject mode, while the Auto Picture Style automatically selects the processing effect it considers most suitable. A Basic+ mode (first seen in the EOS 60D) enables you to choose from one of eight filter effects to change the atmosphere of a scene.

Canon has also added the Feature Guide developed for the new entry level EOS 1100, which describes the function and effect of each key setting to make it easier for the novice to understand what they do.

A range of Creative Filters enables users to achieve a range of effects including Fisheye, Minature Effect, Toy Camera Effect, Grainy B&W and Soft Focus.

The Canon EOS 600D / Rebel T3i is compatible with the full range of over 60 lenses, and the built-in Integrated Speedlite Transmitter enables users to obtain wireless, off-camera flash with the Canon range of Speedlite flashguns. A new 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II kit lens replaces the previous version as one of the kit options.

    Fully agree with John Devoti, but Mulder seems to be complaining that Canon keep dropping their prices too quickly for the same functionality!

  • peter jamieson

    Hey New Zealand is having a price war and when i look at prices they keep dropping. That is because we were a rip off, I suspect parellel imports have eaten into the market here.

  • John Devoti

    Why “Ho” Why do we put up with Rip off Britain
    WHEN WE PAY A LOT MORE FOR THE SAME CANON Camera, than other countries do, if everyone was to boycott Canon and buy NIkon, Sony, etc they would soon reduce their price to the same as they sell it for in other countries. The photographic press who I support by buying their magazines should start a campaign by refusing to review or accept advertising from those companies that are not being fair to the British people.

  • Mulder

    another DSRL from Canons marketing departement rather than the engineering floor.

    how pointless. this is just a 550D with flip display and speedlite transmitter. all the other changes is just a firmware upgrade away from the 550D. i really start to wish I would have gone with Nikon.

    Oh, and the ridiculous prices seem to be a european thing, not just UK: around 700Euros from germany…

    back to the marketing. this thing is a kick in the face for everyone who bought the 60D because of the screen. same for those who bought the 7D for its video functions, a few months later canon introduced the 550D.

    I was going to wait for the new 5D, i bet 3 month after it they announce a different model with similar features for half the price.

    Canon 600D is very nice. The articulate screen is surely a good function to have. My current DSLR is a Nikon D5000 (with articulate screen), and here are my photo collections.

  • ML

    Welcome to the UK! Rip off Britain is just one of many reasons to not live here… 🙂 Saying that I think the 600D completely undermines the 60D and renders the latter a pointless purchase.

  • Real Istbear

    Nice one Canon, not so nice Canon UK: the equivalent T3i body sells stateside for $799 or roughly £499. Why do we continue to pay such high prices for the same gear?

  • Carl

    At this point I’m not sure what kind of benefit I would get buying a more expensive Canon 60D!
