Feature Guide - a first for EOS cameras
To get the best out of any digital SLR, an understanding of the camera’s
features and technologies is essential. With the EOS 600D’s new Feature Guide,
newcomers to the DSLR world are given a brief explanation of what each feature
does and how one might best use it. For example, the ‘Aperture priority AE’
feature is explained on the camera’s LCD screen saying “Adjust aperture to blur
background (subjects stand out) or keep foreground and background in focus”.
Once any feature is selected, the camera also provides onscreen help with
step-by-step instructions as well as useful hints and tips.
Ensure high quality images every time
The EOS 600D combines advanced imaging technologies to form Scene Intelligent
Auto which guarantees high quality images with every shot. Scene Intelligent
Auto is powered by the EOS Scene Detection Technologies which combine to help
you achieve the highest quality images: EOS Scene Detection System, Auto Focus,
Auto Exposure, improved Auto White Balance and Auto Lighting Optimizer and new

the most advanced EOS full HD (1080p) movie capturing features to date, the EOS
600D does not just shoot video clips, it offers the enhanced image quality,
smooth frame rates, in-shooting optical zoom, stereo sound and adaptive exposure
compensation you would normally find in a professional movie-making tool.
In addition to selectable frame rates, the EOS 600D enables easy manual
control of exposure, focus and Live View features and even allows for in-camera
editing. The large APS-C CMOS sensor and compatibility with over 60 Canon lenses
provide a wealth of depth-of-field options, and it's all as easy as the press of
a dedicated Live View/Movie Recording button that gets the shooting started
It also features a Movie Crop mode that effectively provides a 7x zoom.
It is easy to view and share your movies and stills too, thanks to an HDMI
connection which allows High Definition playback of footage and images on any
Multi-shot movies with music made easy
Video Snapshot mode makes it fun and easy to create great videos without the
need to edit on a PC. All you have to do is press the record button to capture
short clips, 2, 4 or 8 seconds. These can they be put together in a playlist to
create a highlights movie of your day. Add music to the movie using pre-loaded
tracks for that professional finish or add your own music using the Music
Transfer Utility supplied.
Powerful resolution and low light performance
The EOS 600D's 18 Megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor performs outstandingly in low
light and produces images with incredibly low noise. Canon's DIGIC 4 processor
works alongside the sensor to deliver 14-bit image processing, for smooth
gradations and natural looking colours, as well as split-second start-up times
and near-instant image review after shooting. DIGIC 4's advanced Noise Reduction
when shooting at higher ISO speeds enables the EOS 600D to offer a high ISO
range of up to 6400 - expandable to 12800 - so you can shoot in low light
without the need for flash.
With continuous shooting up to 3.7 frames per second in bursts of up to 34
JPEGs or 6 RAW files it is easy to capture dramatic action shots. It captures
enough detail to enable you to make ultra-large prints or crop sections from
pictures and still maintain the highest quality, as well as get creative with
your image processing.
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.
iFCL light metering for better results in difficult lighting situations
To complement the 9-point AF system, the EOS 600D features a 63 zone
dual-layer sensor. By taking into account the colour and luminosity surrounding
chosen AF points, this system delivers an incredible level of accuracy for
better results even in difficult lighting situations. Since the metering sensor
has a colour measurement function, exposure errors and focus errors caused by
different light sources are minimised; the EOS 600D gives stable exposure from
shot to shot in situations where light changes, such as a theatre or concert
hall. This makes the EOS 600D ideal for scenes with extreme difference in
brightness; the camera balances exposure of the main subject at the background,
and exposures are not overly influenced by bright areas in the shot.
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.
Unlock your creativity
The EOS 600D has five Creative Modes to explore: Av mode automatically sets
the shutter speed, but allows you to control depth of field by letting you
choose the aperture. By setting the extent to which the lens opens ('aperture'),
you can control the portion of a scene that appears sharp in the image ('depth
of field'). A larger aperture will provide a shallow depth of field (sharp in
the foreground with a blurred background) whereas a smaller aperture will give a
sharp picture throughout.
Tv mode automatically sets the aperture and you select the shutter speed.
This enables you to change the appearance of motion in your shots.
In Program Mode both the aperture and shutter speed are controlled by the
camera but you can select other settings: with Drive Mode you can select from
Single Shot, Continuous Shooting or Self-timer; Metering Mode allows you to
specify the area of the image you wish the camera to use to calculate exposure;
White Balance setting means you can determine what the camera reads as white to
allow for your specific lighting conditions and Flash Mode gives you control
over your flash settings.
Manual Mode allows you to control both aperture and shutter speed so you have
total creative freedom with your shots - great for difficult lighting situations
or capturing subjects with different effects.
A-DEP Mode automatically sets your depth of field so you can be sure to
capture as much or as little of the scene as you wish in focus.
All the Creative Modes allow you to change your ISO speed. This is the
measure of the sensor's sensitivity to light. Altering it allows you to modify
the exposure accordingly and gives you more freedom to be creative with your
shots in different lighting conditions.
For those times when you prefer to concentrate on great composition the EOS
600D also offers several Basic Modes, which control all the settings. These
include; Full Auto, which allows you to use the camera to 'point and shoot';
Portrait, which ensures the background is out of focus and the foreground is pin
sharp; Landscape, which sets a longer exposure and a smaller aperture to capture
both the foreground and background in focus; Close-up which allows you to focus
on very close objects; Sports, which uses a fast shutter speed to freeze action;
and Night Portrait, which increases the ISO to make the camera more sensitive to
light. You can also prevent the built-in flash from popping up using the Flash
Off setting (for shooting in Museums and galleries).
The EOS 600D’s 3” 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.
Choose your style
The EOS 600D allows you to change the look of your images by customising
Picture Style settings for colour, saturation, sharpness and contrast, either
in-camera or later with Canon's comprehensive software suite supplied. Six
preset Picture Styles include Portrait, which provides a sharp and crisp image
with nice skin tones Landscape, which emphasizes vivid blues and greens and
Monochrome to give you stunning black and white images. Canon also offers
additional downloadable 'Picture Style Files' that can be installed into your
camera for even more imaging options at your fingertips.
The EOS 600D allows you to shoot in RAW format and the Digital Photo
Professional software which comes free with it enables high-speed RAW image
processing, fast previewing for real-time image adjustment and support for sRGB,
Adobe RGB and Wide Gamut RGB colour spaces. Because it is CMS (Colour Management
System) compatible, Digital Photo Professional allows for easy image layout and
printing in Adobe RGB in conjunction with Easy-PhotoPrint and PictBridge
Power in your hands
Canon's latest generation of DIGIC processor, the DIGIC 4, is the brain of
the camera and is responsible for the superb responsiveness of all EOS models.
Faster and more powerful than its predecessor, the DIGIC 4 processor gives
exceptional performance and low noise at higher ISO speeds. When shooting in
darker conditions, even if you are pushing the ISO to the limit, DIGIC
processing applies sophisticated Noise Reduction algorithms - helping to
eliminate graininess and preserve detail. The speed of DIGIC also means less
processing time for longer battery life and faster start-up times.
EF & EF-S Lenses
Over 70 years of experience give Canon an inherent advantage when it comes to
lens manufacture. EOS digital SLRs are backed up by the world's most
comprehensive system of interchangeable lenses. From the 8-15mm ultra wide angle
to 800mm super telephoto, the 60+ lenses in the EF series cover all possible
Canon lenses employ advanced optical expertise and micron-precision
engineering to deliver unprecedented performance in all facets of the
photographic process. Special optical technologies, such as aspherical,
ultra-low dispersion, or fluorite elements are featured in the universally
acclaimed L Series lenses. Canon's Optical Image Stabiliser technology is also
featured in selected lenses to minimise the effect of camera shake.
Extend your lighting capabilities
Mastering flash photography can take a lifetime but Canon's extensive range
of Speedlites, can make it simple to get great results. These flash head units
can be used on or off camera to open up a range of creative possibilities. You
can use them in situations where there would otherwise not be enough light or as
a fill-in flash to change your daylight pictures dramatically.
The EOS 600D comes with an Easy Wireless Flash Shooting mode allowing the
user to simply turn on the built-in wireless Speedlite transmitter, place the
wireless compatible Speedlites around a scene and start shooting – reducing the
complexity of the set-up. The EOS 600D is only the third Canon EOS to feature a
built-in wireless Speedlite transmitter, with the 7D and 60D being the other
The Speedlite range is compatible with all EOS cameras and includes a choice
of four standard models and two models for specialist macro use.
EOS Integrated Cleaning Systems
For consistently pristine results, a complete dust prevention and cleaning
system works to keep the EOS 600D's sensor spotless. A combination of
technologies reduces, repels and removes dust, including a Self-Cleaning Sensor
Unit that shakes dust from the sensor with each power-on.

A dream come true, fantastic camera for the
, 16 April 2011
review is from: Canon EOS 600D Digital SLR Camera (inc. 18-55 mm
f/3.5-5.6 IS II Lens Kit) (Electronics)
Been looking for years for a
DSLR, something always put me off.
Took the plunge and boy what a
difference, no problems with contrast (I take photos of coloured horses), plenty
of speed (they don't go as fast as a Ferrari) and I can now make HD
Almost 57 and I feel like I did when I had my first SLR, a
Zenith, then a Ricoh, then a Pentax and the last film SLR is sitting on the
shelf, a mint EOS1000FN if anybody wants it, no better not now that my daughter
is into 'retro' pictures, no idea why.
If you are in any doubt about
buying one of these DON'T BE!!
Update: I took some absolutely stunning
pics and videos at an indoor horse show, poor lighting and fast action still
didn't catch this camera out. I was going to buy the 60D but now I'm glad I
didn't, the video zoom is essential and according to Canon will not appear on
the 60D because it is a hardware enhancement, nothing to do with firmware.
Any questions please ask, will be sent recorded delivery UK ONLY.
