Canon EOS 550D DSLR camera

 

The new Canon EOS 550D was one of those cameras that got us really excited when it arrived at Pocket-lint towers. For some it is a camera that can potentially confuse - packing an 18-megapixel sensor into a consumer DSLR seems counter to the sensible...

Detail in images, excellent video performance and controls, performance in ISO range, shooting mode to appeal to newbies and advanced photographers

Price, some of the advanced settings are well hidden in menus

Impressive image performance is paired with hardware specs that will widely appeal. You don't get all the bells and whistles, but those elements that are missing really are high-end features. If anything, it's the fast action stuff where the EOS 550D...

Canon EOS 550D review

 

Canon's latest entry-level DSLR has an 18MP sensor and a mastery of HD video. Could it be the best low-end DSLR of all time?

Not the cheapest entry-level DSLR but the sheer breadth of abilities makes it an instant classic

Canon EOS 550D review

 

18MP sensor and full HD movie mode at a keen price - so what is the catch?

Quality build ; High-res 18Mp sensor ; Superb ISO performance ; Improved intelligent metering ; Full HD movie recording

Plastic body only ; Cheap and basic kit lens ; Cramped optical viewfinder ; Cluttered top dial ; Clunky movie autofocus

The Canon EOS 550D is not quite Canon's highest-spec'd consumer digital SLR, but it still packs a mighty punch.

Canon EOS 550D review

 

Canon's EOS 550D is a very good camera that's packed to the gills with features, but we'd recommend avoiding the kit lens

The 550D doesn’t do enough to warrant an award but – with the right lens – it’s very much a safe bet. Photo quality is exceptional and videos are too as long as you don’t need continuous autofocus. It’s the natural choice for more creative users who...

Canon EOS Rebel T2i review

 

Instead of replacing its tired, old XS and XSi models to compete with younger, sprier sub-$700 models from Nikon, Sony, and Pentax in that extremely popular price segment, Canon chose to release an update to its more expensive T1i in the less...

Fast performance; excellent photo quality; above average video-capture quality.

Annoying viewfinder; irritating control layout for video capture.

A great follow-up to the T1i, if you want the best photo and video quality in a dSLR for less than $1,000, the Canon EOS Rebel T2i is hard to beat.

Canon EOS 550D review

 

It's designed to entice novice users into making the leap into digital SLR photography - it's furnished with a lot of features that make it easy to use. At the same time, enthusiast users will appreciate its manual controls and advanced features. You...

From our limited time with the Canon EOS 550D, we can say that it shoots very good images, its usability is high and it's reasonably swift. The auto mode still tends to pop up the built-in flash most of the time, instead of utilising the high ISO...

Con una definizione di 18 MP, la EOS 550D fa concorrenza alla sua consorella Canon più costosa. Questa reflex vanta una modalità di registrazione video Full-HD 1920 x 1080, un'efficiente Live View, un numero impressionante di impostazioni e funzioni e,...
