Hi everyone, my testing of the 600D / T3i is well underway! Ahead of my full review, here's a taster of some results. For the High ISO Noise results page I compared it against the Sony Alpha SLT A55, both in single and Multi-Frame NR modes.

I also have no fewer than seven video samples for you, including three of the Moon, demonstrating the new digital movie zoom facility. Hope you like them!

NEW! Canon EOS 600D / T3i High ISO Noise results!

Thanks Gordon, this is very interesting, the moon at 4800mm especially. Good to see Canon innovating with this Full HD 10x.
I notice in the first paragraph of the noise comparison, it is compared to the Sony A33, presume that's a typo and should be A55.

Awesome stuff, cheers!

CamlessPhotography, where did you get a link to the verdict page? I've not finished the review yet, so it doesn't exist! If there's a link to it somewhere by mistake though, let me know.

SP - thanks JamieK, I'll correct it...

here it is print screen, both links sample gallery and verdict. Anyway Gordon when should we expect full review. I've checked many and waiting your review so will be really helpful for me to make my mind to 600d or a55.

PS - sorry can't say exactly when the review will be completed as there's many variables involved. Watch this space!

Hi,

With the Canon EOS 600D being the fourth camera in the Canon lineup employing the same 18MP sensor, albeit with less number of data readout channels than the EOS 7D, would it be fair to say that all four cameras would be on par when it comes to noise performance and detail retention? If they share the same sensor and same processors, would the difference be down to just firmware versions? Also, does this mean that the EOS 550D and the EOS 600D are essentially the same save the swivel screen?

Jinay.

Yes Jinay, that is spot on.

There is of course wireless flash control and whatever, but no owners will be upgrading in a hurry for improved image quality.

 Post subject: 10x digital zoom?
PostPosted: Sat Mar 26, 2011 11:50 am 
"Moon with 70-300mm at 300mm and 10x digital zoom (4800mm equiv)"
Gordon would 300 x 10 not be 3000mm equiv?
anyhow how do they get so much detail out of 10 x digital?

Hi,

Most probably we should have a new sensor with the 7Dmk2 (I am guessing it's called that) launch. But, the question is, will Canon further increase the resolution? The current 18MP resolution is also very high for most budget optics. If Canon launch a new sensor for the higher end line-up and filter it down, the image quality may actually worsen on cameras that use a very high resolution sensor and lower grade lenses since along with not being to match the sensor resolution, the super high resolution sensor may bring out more flaws in the lenses. Is it time for a revamped lens lineup? I would certainly like to have a better kit lens that the current one.

Jinay.

There's new kit-lenses announced! The problem of needing to have very good optics started with the announce of the 50D, as seen in the review the 18-200 (which is quite good) just cant give us sharp photographs. With the 18mp sensors, the problem only gets worse.

Taking that argument to its conclusion, it would suggest you must have a lens that is better than the sensor. Why is it so bad if the sensor is better than the lens? When the sensor out resolves the lens, it is no less sharp when you view the same area at the same magnification as with a lower MP sensor. Even the best lenses wont be at their best all the time, are you suggesting you can't use it in less optimal settings? Of course not.
