EOS 600D and new EF-S 18-55mm lens

Canon has launched the EOS 600D – a compact, lightweight digital SLR. The camera sits at the top of Canon’s entry-level EOS line-up, above the existing EOS 550D and the new EOS 1100D.

The EOS 600D provides all the tools to capture stills and HD movies. Picture detail is provided by a high-resolution 18 Megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor which combines with 14-bit DIGIC 4 processing to capture smooth gradients between colours. The camera’s low light shooting capability allows clear, natural images in darker conditions, with an ISO range of 100-6400 that can be further expanded to 12800.

New EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II
Launching with the EOS 600D is the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II – a new kit lens that provides excellent performance for beginners. A lightweight construction makes it easy to carry; optical Image Stabilization allows photographers to use shutter speeds 4 stops slower while still maintaining a blur-free shot. The EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II will succeed the existing EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS in Canon’s lens line-up.
