Canon announce EOS 600D and EOS 1100D DSLRs

Canon have announced two new DSLRs, available early April this year; the EOS 600D and EOS 1100D.

The 600D has the following features:

Features

  • 18-megapixel CMOS sensor
  • Scene Intelligent Auto mode
  • Full-HD EOS Movie
  • On-screen Feature Guide
  • 3.7fps continuous shooting
  • Wide-area 9-point AF
  • 1,040k-dot vari-angle 7.7cm (3.0”) screen
  • Basic+ and Creative Filters
  • Built-in wireless flash control 
The 1100D has the following features:

Features

  • Superior 12-megapixel image quality
  • On-screen Feature Guide
  • Creative Auto and Basic+
  • HD video capture
  • ISO 100-6400 sensitivity
  • Wide-area 9-point AF system
  • 63-zone iFCL exposure metering
  • 6.8cm (2.7”), 230,000-dot screen
  • Use with all EF and EF-S lenses 
Both cameras are essentially minor upgrades to existing models (the 550D and the 1000D). This may mean that bargains are to be had in buying the existing model in the next few weeks as their replacements entry into the market draws near. Already we are starting to see some price reductions in anticipation of the arrival of both models. Certainly I would hold off buying either the 550D or the 1000D until after the arrival of the new models.

Prices have yet to be officially confirmed but some retailers are quoting  £679 for the 600D Body and £499 for the 1100D with 18-55mm IS Lens.
