Canon EOS 600D digital SLR Camera Review
After the introduction of the digital rebel “the original canon camera” in 2003, canon has never disappointed as with every new model there has been a new and refined features added to it. The latest canon digital, the EOS 600D, is no exception. The EOS 600D has been described as a refined and updated 550D camera with an articulated-screen, and most of the updated features are perfect for beginners.
The EOS 600D has a shape similar to the 550D and sits perfectly in your arm plus its controls are within reach. The button configuration on 600D is similar to the one on the 550D model; it has some access function for quick function and the dual purpose, playback, and a four way directional pad. The only change in the design is that the display button has been placed right above the mode-dial, and it has replaced the normal sensor in 550D which flicked the LCD off and on.
Picture and video shooting
The EOS 600D comes with an 18 mega pixels CMOS sensor plus a digic four image processor similar to the one on 550D. A full high definition video coverage at 15, 24, and 30fps is standard for all canon cameras and a video snap-shot mode an idea borrowed the camcorder line. This makes it possible for a photographer to capture small video footage of either 2, 4 or 8 seconds and then he can piece them in the montage and add background music.

Other than the manual focus, there are additional 3 auto-focus modes to select from, AI focus which when a movement is detected it switches from 1 shot to servo, AI servo which captures greatly moving objects and follows them with perfect tracking bright after taking the photo and the one-shot AF which is perfect for static objects.
To complement the 9 focusing point system this camera has a 63- zone dual-layer sensor which considers the luminosity and colour surrounding a specific AF points. this sensor delivers a wonderful accuracy level thus delivering a perfect result.
