Canon EOS 600D review – Introduction
In any competition, if you stand still your rivals are likely to overtake you, so if you want to stay ahead you’ve got to keep moving. This is why Canon has released the Canon EOS 600D just a year after it announced the EOS 550D. A few quizzical eyebrows may be raised at this because at first glance there seems to be very little difference between the two. For instance, both share the same 18-million-pixel sensor, Digic 4 image processor and maximum ISO 12,800 sensitivity.
However, such overt similarities are deceptive because the new camera has actually adopted a few features from the next model up in the range, the Canon EOS 60D, which won both the Enthusiast Camera of the Year and Product of the Year at this year’s Amateur Photographer Awards.
