Kick-Ass machine...

After doing a lot of research and comparing several entry level cameras including NIkon 5100 , Nikon 5200, Canon 1100, Canon SX50-HS, Sony HX300, etc, I finally decided to buy the Canon 550D. This is despite having heard so many good reviews of the Nikon vs Canon. But when it comes to the use and t… (View complete review)

AF Motor???

I see many people writing in different reviews that this "camera has auto focus built in motor" in many other camera reviews comparison... like with Nikon D3100, Nikon D3200. So I have a question, if its mentioned anywhere on the camera description page or is it your personal experience??? I couldn'… (View complete review)

good choice for a beginner

Lens could be a limitation, beginners generally tend to take a kit lens to start off and then expand the kitty later. I did the same but will suggest people to research more on lenses before purchasing.

Otherwise great camera, found all controls easily accessible through a Q (quick?) button…

Awesome Cam, Good Service, Courteous and Responsive Staff.

My entry into the DSLR world and i chose the 550D. after about a week, i am one happy and proud owner. It was either a 550D or a Nikon D5100 for me. Both are good and both have their pros and cons. I chose the 550D.

I was told i would get the Cam on the 4th, but received it on the 5th. But that was within their 3 days delivery time :). So no complaints. I was very eager (and anxious) to get my hands on this beauty. And therefore kept calling the Support, who btw were very courteous. Provided the right information and not once did they mislead me.

The cam and the other freebies w

Just Amazing piece of camera

i oredered for this camera after extensive research on the net and of course some freinds from the feild of photography. i must say, it was worth every bit of effort put in. A masterstroke camera and definately worth the money, anybody who has this passion of photography and wants to graduate from the point to shoot to the DSLR should make the entry with this piece...enjoin every bit of it. As far as the service of Flipkart goes..i m impressed with their packing, update on the order track and the way the whole transaction was handled. i had orderd for cash on delivery and let me admit nobody s

Awesome Camera

I like this camera ( little amateur but in budget, got it in 2 days but due defects in the cmos had to get it replaced.
CMOS has some err 80 beware ... that's a dead end.
the replaced camera works fine. could have just bought body and saved on another 5k-6k 18-55 is useless its the lowest a canon can get :P although it has IS
... camera is pretty poor at higher ISO... works just fine at lower ones..actually amazing...
17.9 MP is just a showoff...
video mode has auto ISO which will annoy you if you are a fan of picture clarity.
there are lot other things to like .... like it

amazing service and a good product

After spending about a month to decide which camera to buy finally got stuck with nikon 3100 and canon 550d. Lots of confusion, finally joined to decide the canon family, not any particular reason for that[probably ability to use the external mike slot made me to purchase this! ofcourse that option has nothing to do with photography]. As usual flipkart delivered neatly packed camera and its accessories and they delivered it in just 2 days! the camera is good, good grip, amazing photos even at higher ISO range.[some reviews about canon 550d say that it is not good at higher ISO, but at present

Amazing camera!

The camera needs no review! Its tried,tested and recommended by experts in the field. Am just an amateur photographer and so far my experience with this camera has been wonderful.

Flipkart goofed up on the delivery. But having had wonderful service from them before, I wouldn't really rate them down. The free bag isn't upto the mark. And the tripod is really sturdy.

Picture quality is awesome, loving it.

Moving from Point & shoot camera to DSRL, Canon 550D is certainly a good choice.

Its pretty easy to use, and with so many options as against point & shoot camera, one can take their photography to a new level.

Both Canon and Nikon are good brands, have earlier used Nikon's ones but in this case found Canon 550D much more comfortable while holding, certainly a personal choice.

Its not too bulky and heavy, as the image may look like.

Do invest in good camera bag, as standard one which comes along is not classy.

Picture quality is awesome, loving it.

Awesome Camera

Flipkart, I must say, is the best site for online purchases in terms of service. I got my delivery within 30 hours of order and manage to use it for one of my outings. Packaging was excellent with cash on delivery.

I wanted to buy Nikon D5100, but it was not available anywhere in India. Then after discussion and search, I shortlisted this one. It has great features and a must recommend for people who want to start photography with SLR. The freebies UV lens, tripod, SD card and bag are of very good quality. Money spent is totally worth.

Happy Clicking.

Good offer with incredible service from Flipkart

A good camera from the stable of Canon. Got it delivered within 3 days of placing the order. Freebies included a Tripod and a 16 GB Card apart from a Camera Bag and a 4 GB Card offered by Canon. To my mind the Tripod is of huge benefit if someone interests in serious photography.

I have been using the Camera since 8th May 2012 and haven't faced any complaint. Had initial hiccups in getting the product registered with Canon India for warranty but it went smooth after the purchase memos were uploaded on Canon website.

Thanks to Flipkart for the service.

Best suited for Video

The best thing about this camera is that it has same sensor as the canon 7D and gives amazing result with videos and has most varied options to shoot at


As far as photos are concerned, the 18MP resolution is enough for most of the users. The image quality is better than entry level 1000d, 1100d,etc with good dynamic range and noise-control.

the deal-getter for me was ability to incorporate Magic-lantern(a 3rd party firmware), which transcends the abilities of this camera further, with a lot of helpful features for pho
