600D/T3i Specs [CR2]
« on: February 03, 2011, 07:05:04 PM »

Same as previously reported

There’s nothing new as far as a 600D replacement goes, pretty much confirmation of what we’ve been told before.



  • 18mp sensor

  • 3.7fps

  • Vari-Angle 3″ LCD

  • DiGiC IV.

  • Video Snapshot Mode

  • Redesign of the model nameplate as well.


A collection of other specs mentioned from various people.



  • Improved LiveView AF

  • Electronic Level Added

  • Slightly redesigned flash

  • Changes to the menu system

  • Unnamed software feature upgrades


CR’s Take

“Improved LiveView AF” will be coming with every camera in the rumor world. I’d take that with a grain of salt. Everything else is completely plausible.

That will make it almost like a 60D except the size and the grip.  What is the point of having this model??

I agree.  This seems like a 60D in a slightly smaller form factor with lower fps.  There just doesn't seem like enough differentiation to me, especially since they've effectively rebelized the XXD series.

Seems just like the rest of the Rebel line-up. It's always incremental changes with the xxxds. They come once a year. And they almost always provide a lot of bang for the buck.

This seems like a Rebel without a cause.

"Rebel without a cause..." - I like that, Goon! ;-)

the 60D also got a much better viewfinder and better AF (9 cross sensors as compared to 1). It also has a built-in transmitter for slave flashes, a second display, weather sealing, better controls and a more powerful battery. So I wouldn't say there's not enough difference between the two models to justify the higher price of the 60D.

However, there's nearly no innovation when comparing the 600D to the 550D, except the articulating screen. So I agree: It's a rebel without a cause, only created to keep the 1-year product cycle of the Rebel family intact...

It's not even been announced and we're talking about its replacement!  :)

It's good to see another "rebel w/o a cause" entering the stage *lol* I think the rebel actually has a cause - to see what's Canon's new standard for its best-selling body.

I'd assume people with 7D or above need not purchase a rebel, but I think the 60D and 600D are important standards for the general consumer market. For one thing, I think installing the articulating screen for both consumer-market bodies is also an important statement (of course, the electronic-level indicator is also a good addition).

I'm just curious if an internal GPS-location gadget would be coming in the near future...

to use a cliche here: it is what it is.  if you're expecting to see either (1) major differentiation or (2) a major revolution in featureset, the XXXD and XXD lineups are not the place to look for it; nor have they been for a long time.

the XXXD lineup is predominantly targeted at the consumer who will walk into a big box store and say "what's the newest camera you have?", then ask "does it do everything auto?" and then ask "how much does it cost?".  they are made to be easy, straightforward sales.  sure there are advanced users who make pick up a 60D or T2i (usually based on budget or as a backup cam) but that's definitely not the target audience.

it's a rebel with a very clear cause; the same cause that all other rebels have -- to go out and sell like hotcakes and make canon very profitable.

lol, so true :) I know some people, even family members, who've bought a Rebel but never used anything else than its default "full-auto" mode ;D

It does seem as though Canon is playing a little game to see how close they can push the Rebel line and the XXD line together. And they've actually done a pretty good job and skirting the line between the two lines.

It does seem like it might have happened by accident though. Canon thought:
"Ok, let's use the 18mp sensor from the T2i and 7D in the new 60D. Perfect"

-6 months later

"Time for a new Rebel.... Crap"

If this holds true, it would confirm my [guess] back on December 8, 2010:
I agree that the T2i (550D) is a great camera and it sells extremely well, but if Canon could release a camera at the Rebel XS (1000D) pricepoint that isn't completely anemic and obsolete they would steal even more sales away from Nikon (mostly the D3100 and the remaining stock of D3000s).  A 12MP XS-replacement with 720p and live view with 3200 ISO max would be a very compelling product, although that would mean it would have to share the Digic 4 processor of the 500D and 550D and not the Digic III of the 450D/1000D (making it more expensive to produce).

And on December 4, 2010 (with the expection of chronological order and the 600D being based on the 7D replacement):
I think 2011 will bring replacements for (in chronological order):
Rebel XS replacment (12MP, 720p video, ISO 3200 max)
7D Mark II
1Ds Mark IV
T2i replacement (entry-level 7D Mark II specs)

I do think the updated 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II sounds interesting.  Maybe they redesigned it for higher resolving power since the resolution of APS-C cameras has jumped from 12 MP (XSi/450D) to 18 MP (T2i/550D) since the original 18-55mm IS was released.
