The 18 megapixel Canon EOS 600D (called the Digital Rebel T3i in North America) is a new DSLR camera that sits above last year’s 550D / T2i at the top of Canon’s entry-level EOS line-up. The 600D / T3i offers a 1,040,000-dot vari-angle LCD screen, a 63-zone metering sensor – identical to the one used in the more expensive EOS 7D – standard ISO settings of 100-6400 (expandable to 12800), and 3.7fps continuous shooting.
