In terms of picture quality on a DSLR camera, it is not enough to note the megapixels on the sensor, but the sensor size itself. The Canon EOS 600D is a highly capable DSLR that sports an 18.0 MP APS-C sized CMOS sensor. This sensor is able to take higher quality images across a wide range of lighting conditions.
Auto Scene Modes
The camera is equipped with the hardware that is more than capable of taking high quality images on Manual modes. Though for those that are relatively new to the DSLR scene, there is a highly capable Auto Mode that can also be used for intelligent scene recognitions. The camera is capable of adjusting the settings to better suit the scene that is presented before it.
With the upgraded sensor, it is not possible to take high quality, HD videos at 24, 25 and 30 fps that can translate into great home made movies and mini projects. The HD videos can always be used for short film making or even for college or corporate projects.
If the workings of the camera seem too advanced, there is always the Basic + mode as well as the feature guide that can explain most if not all the features present on the camera. This is a highly useful mode as you may take this opportunity to learn more about the camera’s special features that can always unlock new avenues of photography and expand on your creativity.
This camera is equipped with a swiveling monitor that can help in taking images from a wide range of angles that are not possible with a camera with a fixed angle monitor. The 3 inch LCD monitor is capable of moving along a wide range of angles to better adjust to difficult capture angles that you may find yourself in.
