CANON EOS 550D Body Only
The Canon EOS 550D digital SLR camera takes many of the features found in professional cameras and squeezes them into a smaller, more consumer friendly body. The 550D's 18 megapixel APS-C sized CMOS sensor is paired with Canon's advanced DIGIC IV image processor to give users superb image quality, unlimited creativity and Full 1920x1080p HD movie capability. The sensor and processor combination offers ISO settings of 100-6400 (expandable to 12800) and the clever in-camera noise reduction technology further improves the EOS 550D's low-light performance. The 3 inch Clear View LCD screen with 1040k dot resolution provides remarkable clarity for both composition with the 550D's Live View Mode and for reviewing your images and videos.
