Canon EOS 600D / Rebel T3i

This is done now! Canon did it again! They launched new SLR photo cameras. This is starting with the Canon EOS 600D, all new, all cute. Not a revolution, as usual, Canon walks slowly and step-by-step to progress without frightening its customers (and without exciting its prospective customers).

The Canon EOS 600D (also known under the Canon Rebel T3i name tag in the United States of America), is mostly defined by its new 18 MP digital sensor (heir to the EOS 60D, EOS 7D family) and its tilt-and-swivel back LCD (Canon says it is Vari-angle).

Furthermore, it is quite visible that the form factor of the camera is slightly reduced with a rounded and fluid shape. I can’t be certain this will be pleasant to all eyes, but it is certainly a way to get a little weight out of the box (this is always good to help convince customers in the competition with hybrid cameras without a mirror).

Also specially for the new users coming to an SLR camera, Canon included a “Basic+” users mode (all new and providing a tighter assistance for the users who may be afraid to be lost in the traditional menus).
