Two new Digital SLR cameras unveiled by Canon

Canon target entry-level DSLR market with two new models

Canon has announced the expansion of its EOS range of entry-level Digital SLR cameras as it officially introduces the Canon EOS 600D and the Canon Eos 1100D.

The two new body models come after the Japanese camera giant announced it had breached a new landmark having produced the 60 millionth EF lens, 24 years after the first unit rolled off the production line.

Sporting an 18-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 4 image processor with Full HD video capture capabilities the EOS 600D will allow wannabe owners the ability to quickly switch between high-end still and video shooting. Attuning itself to the complete DLSR newbie the EOS 1100D will sport a 12.2-megapixel sensor and allow for 720p HD video recording.

Set to launch in the UK in early April of this year the EOS 600D, whilst available in a number of bundle deals with a range of compatible lenses, will set wannabe owners back £679 for the body. The EOS 1100D will launch alongside its higher-speced counterpart priced just £419.
