Canon debuts EOS 600D and 1100D
Tired of those pesky Micro Four Thirds snappers stealing the limelight, Canon's EOS clan has debuted two upgrades to its popular entry-level models – the 600D and 1100D.
Much like Sony's NEX-5, both models introduce handy on-screen guides, with explanations of lingo like 'Aperture Priority' for those who don't know their F-stops from their flash. Beginners will also be pleased to see a fully-automatic Scene Intelligent mode.
As the EOS range's new leader, the 600D features an 18MP CMOS sensor, Full HD video recording and vari-angle screen that you can twist to help with 'over the crowd' shots.
If that's too much for your camera skills and wallet, the 1100D packs a 12.2MP CMOS sensor and 720p HD video shooting.
Both snappers will be available from early April, the 600D for £680 (body only) and the 100D for £419 (body only). We'll bring you full tests very soon.
