Summary: Only a year after the release of the , here is its replacement -- the T3i. Let me state right now that existing T2i owners needn't feel that they are missing out by not upgrading to this camera. The T3i keeps the 18 megapixels and range of its predecessor, so there is no difference in image quality.
Conclusion: The Canon EOS 600D is destined to be a major success. Despite being laden with the kind of features you’d expect to find on an enthusiast-level DSLR, it retains its compact size and ease of use and manages to deliver a very high success rate in terms of well-exposed, sharp results.
Summary: The Canon EOS 600D is an excellent reflex. It can generate good-quality images from high definition, with accurate colors and realistic, and without suffering much of problems related to digital noise.
Conclusion: As it stands, the Canon T3i is the flagship Rebel, with the T3 and T2i beneath it in features. Its still image quality is among the best in its price range, and its video modes are quite complete, offering excellent quality, provided you can handle shooting video more carefully than you would with a...
Pros: Excellent and proven 18-megapixel sensor, Lots of detail, especially in RAW files, Very good high ISO performance, Very accurate colors, Full HD video capability at three frame rates with auto or manual exposure control, Video Digital Zoom, ranging from 3-10x, Good quality optics with image stabi...
Cons: Dynamic range is not up to par with the best APS-C sensors, No microfocus adjustment, Very warm auto white balance indoors, Sluggish startup and mode switching, Only center AF point is cross-type, while the Canon 60D has all nine cross-type (for those considering a 60D), 3.7fps is slow for sports...
Summary: There's also a great deal of overlap with the higher-end EOS 60D, which meant the new model was greeted by many with a shrug. But what Canon's doing here is following a simple strategy that's proven successful for companies like Sony: to offer a wide variety of products with often only subtle...
Pros: High resolution 18 Megapixel stills., Articulated screen with superb 1040k / 3:2 panel., HD video at multiple fps with mic input and adjustable levels., Wireless flash control., Neat Digital Zoom and Video Snapshot features.
Cons: Modest 3.7fps shooting and small RAW buffer., Average 9-point AF system and viewfinder., Still no continuous AF for movies., Models on either side may be better for some photographers.
Summary: In June 2012 the Canon EOS 650D was announced as the successor to the EOS 600D with a launch price just shy of £800 with an 18-55mm kit lens. This has since fallen to around £600. The price for the older EOS 600D (with 18-55mm kit lens), meanwhile, now stands at around £450-500.
Pros: Excellent image quality, easy to pick-up and use
Cons: Sluggish AF during Live View and video recording
Summary: Canon has had an admirably tight grip on the DSLR market ever since the phenomenally successful EOS 300D dived below the four-figure price barrier back in 2003. The success of the EOS D range has never been simply about price however, but the high quality kit you get for your money.
