  • Excerpt: When I got great shots (paired up with my 15-85 IS) the shots were stellar. The problem is it generally took between 2 and 4 shots to get that. I do not like Canon's implementation of the evaluative meter. It is not evaluative. It is a partial-spot meter if you use a single AF point. Also the meter locks when the shutter release button is pushed; this would not be so bad if the AF point wasn't metered on so heavily.

Great Camera, bad cheap Chinese accessories

M. V. FH "M.V.F.", Amazon
24 February 2012
  • Summary: The camera is exceptional but the accessories they put together are cheap and not as advertised, they are really cheap Chinese accessories. Do not be fooled by the picture!! The bag I received is nothing like the picture for example. It only has one buckle and it is so flimsy and soft that I would NEVER recomend place your camera in it. I chose the bundle to save the time and money but learned a valuable lesson.

Memory Card not included

tanny, Amazon

  • Summary: The battery was charged. Both lens 18-55 and 75-300 were included. But there is no memory card included with this product. Had planned to test out today, before Thanksgiving, but cannot. Will have to go and buy a memory card. Sure wished the product would have said 'no memory card included'. Live and learn and ask before you buy. Glad I was not sending this as a gift. Will update my review as soon as I go find a memory card.

  • Excerpt: I had a bad experience with this camera. the picture's quality is good but too much for a beginner like me. it was bulky and heavy, you wouldn't bring it around everywhere you go. and a few months after i got this, the lens got problem and i need to send for repairs. i'm a beginner and i think this isn't the best for me.

  • Summary: Go and buy one, good value for money... But somethings need improving.
  • Pros: Easy to use, I own a IMAC. Very easy to install and edit photos.
  • Cons: Absolutely a nightmare taking the lens out, photo quality alright, not very good. It got broken, sent it to canon. Got a new one.

  • Excerpt: Очень тщательно подходил к выбору зеркалки, детально изучил информацию в интернете, прочитал кипу отзывов, выбирал производителей и модели аппаратов и остановился на CANON EOS 550D с объективом 18-135, так как 18-55 брать никто не советует и все его только ругают. И каково было моё разочарование, когда я обнаружил недостаточную резкость. Попытки настроить аппарат ни к чему не привели.
  • Pros: Хороший цвет.
  • Cons: В первую очередь резкость! Она не-то, чтобы ужасна, но очень далека от того результата который, я ожидал от зеркалки такой ценовой категории и фирмы. Никакой фотошоп не помогает Боится пыли или как говорят ,,пылесос,, Снимать желательно только в помещении после влажной уборки и чисто вымытыми руками и со штатива, так как каждое биение вашего сердца будет отображаться на резкости вашего фото.

Electronique fragile et SAV laborieux

Traceologue, Amazon
9 December 2010
  • Summary: Le Canon EOS 550D est un bon boîtier, agréable à utiliser et de performance remarquable en faible sensibilité avec un grain d'aspect argentique plus graphique que le lissage appliqué par les électroniques des boîtiers d'autres marques. Il n'est cependant pas approprié à la photomacrographie, car la diffraction apparaît trop vite (au-delà de f/5.6 au rapport 1:1 avec l'excellent Canon EF-S 60 mm Macro, alors que le capteur de l'EOS 1000D supporte f/11 sans broncher ; même...

  • Excerpt: Хорошая базовая камера, практически единственный выбор если вы хотите видео на скромном бюджете. Удобство управления, однако, оставляет желать много лучшего. Отсутствие верхнего LCD и необходимость по любому поводу смотреть на "основной" LCD раздражает. Для меня камера таки и не стала "своей", я ее продал и купил 7D, которая куда лучше в этом смысле.
  • Pros: Видео
  • Cons: Удобство управления
