Inheriting Canon 60D’s 1,040k-dot vari-angle 7.7cm (3.0”) screen and built-in wireless flash control, many may see the new 600D as a quality successor of 60D for beginners with a cheaper price. Let’s open the box and explore: a Canon EOS 600D DSLR Camera, a LP-E8 battery pack, a battery charger, a data cable (USB), a AV cable, a CD-ROM and a user's guide.
Wth a slightly huger body than 550D. EOS 600D adopts design similar like 60D. Yet with a longer handle and shutter placed higher, users now have space to hold the camera.
The EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II 4 is perhaps the best companion of it. The new kit lens is portable with its lightweight construction. Canon’s acclaimed optical Image Stabilization also guarantees blur-free shots.
It is indeed surprisingly tempting to find the EOS 60D’s LCD screen on Canon 600D. With a much more affordable price, its doubtlessly appealing to many.
With aid of fluorine coating and anti-reflection coating, the 1.04 million-dot LCD provides a superb viewing performance from a wide range of angles.
With button setting basically similar to that of 550D, 600D has replaced the DISP. button by an INFO. button and has the former button now put on the top of the camera.
On the left, you can see a A/C OUT, HDMI mini-output, time remote and an external microphone jack. All in all, EOS600D is indeed a worth-to-buy among the lineup of Canon’s entry level EOS. It appears to be an ideal choice to beginners with more-than-sufficient functions with a decent price.
