Aspiring to take great pictures but unwilling to shell out for professional grade kit? Check out Canon’s new EOS 600D which bumps up the top end of their entry-level range.
Sitting at the top of the EOS amateur range, the 600D can shoot full HD video and has an 18 megapixel sensor. The features:
– 18 Megapixel (MP) APS-C CMOS sensor for amazing picture detail
– 14-bit DIGIC 4 processing to provide exceptionally smooth gradients between colours
– full HD video capture at 3.7 frames per second (fps)
– 7.7cm Vari-Angle Clear View LCD screen
– 9-point Auto Focus system also ensures that subjects are in-focus, no matter where it is in the frame
– low light shooting capability enabling you to achieve clear, natural images in darker conditions, with an ISO range of 100-6400 that can be further expanded to 12800.
Also announced today is another entry-level EOS camera – the EOS 1100D described as the “ideal beginner’s EOS combining a high-performance specification with exceptional ease-of-use.”
– 12.2 Megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor means EOS 1100D owners can shoot photos up to A3 size
– HD video capture at 3.2 fps
The Canon EOS 600D is available from early April 2011 at £679.00 for just the body or £769+ with a lens
The Canon EOS 1100D is available from March 2011 at £499 including a kit lens
