The EOS 600D is powered by an 18-megapixel high image quality CMOS sensor and the powerful DIGIC 4 image processor. Features like Scene Intelligent Auto, Basic+ and Feature Guide make it simple to achieve full control over creative functions. The advanced Creative are integrated into the EOS 600D, as well as Full HD video recording and Video Snapshot.
Class-Leading 18.0-Megapixel CMOS Sensor
In the spirit of Canon's imaging supremacy, the EOS 600D adopts a generous 18-megapixel CMOS (APS-C-sized) sensor that empowers you to take all manner of scenes from vast, breathtaking landscapes to close-up wildlife shots in explicit detail. Having a massive 18-megapixel resolution also means that you can still turn your photos into gallery exhibits even after cropping them.
3-Inch Wide Vari-Angle Clear View LCD Monitor
For exceptional recording and playback of images, the EOS 600D employs a crisp 3-inch wide Vari-Angle Clear View LCD monitor that contains over a million dots. The nifty Vari-Angle screen is also a welcome addition for curious shutterbugs looking to discover fresh framing perspectives, as the specially designed hinge allows it to be swiveled in almost any angle.
Scene Intelligent Auto
Fresh out of Canon's factory of innovation is the Scene Intelligent Auto mode, a fully automatic shooting mode that takes total advantage of the EOS Scene Detection System, an integrated system that analyzes every element of a scene including a person's face, and/or the image's brightness, movement, contrast, color, distance and more. This information is then expertly evaluated by Scene Intelligent Auto to produce beautiful exposures that truly capture the essence of their surroundings.
Focusing Made Easy
A wide-area Auto Focus (AF) system uses nine separate focusing points to lock onto subjects fast and makes it easy to get the shot you want. As well as Manual Focus there are three auto-focus modes to choose from: One-Shot AF, ideal for static subjects such as portraits and landscapes AI Servo, great for moving subjects and keeps following the subject with predictive tracking until you take the shot and AI Focus, which switches from One Shot to Servo when movement is detected. The centre, cross-type focus point operates flawlessly in lower-light and lower-contrast settings.
Live View Function
Live View is a real-time visual feed, which enables you to view your subjects directly on the LCD monitor, a great help when shooting from awkward angles. It's easy to magnify any part of the scene 5x or 10x for precise manual focus. You can even choose a grid overlay, perfect for keeping vertical or horizontal lines straight in your composition. Live View Function can be used remotely via a computer through a USB connection and the included EOS Utility software.
The EOS 600D’s 3 inches Vari-Angle LCD screen not only flips 175° and rotates 270° - it also has an incredible 1,040,000 dot resolution and 3:2 aspect ratio, offering incredible flexibility of shooting without compromising on quality. So whether you’re shooting across a crowd or from ground-level, you’ll capture the scene perfectly every time. Plus, the EOS 600D’s anti-reflective, water-repellent coating makes for easy viewing in bright light and from a variety of angles.
