Canon has unveiled two APS-C format entry-level EOS DSLRs - the 18 Megapixel EOS 600D and the 12.2 Megapixel EOS 1100D - that are being launched alongside the new EF-S18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II zoom lens.

First-class image quality

The compact, lightweight EOS 600D sits at the top of Canon's entry-level EOS DSLR line-up and has all the necessary specification to capture beautiful stills and HD movies. Amazing picture detail is provided by a high-resolution 18 Megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, which combines with 14-bit DIGIC 4 processing so you can capture the wonder of a beautiful blue sky and enjoy exceptionally smooth gradients between colours. The camera's low light shooting capability enables you to achieve clear, natural images in darker conditions thanks to an ISO range of 100-6400 - this can also be expanded further up to ISO 12,800.

The EOS 600D allows high-speed shooting at 3.7 frames per second, enabling you to capture fast-moving action. Each shot will be captured in sharp detail thanks to the 9-point AF system, which can track subjects using the autofocus points across the frame. Even more accurate focusing is provided by an extra-sensitive central AF Sensor, while the iFCL metering system - first seen in the semi-professional EOS 7D - features a 63-zone Dual-layer Metering Sensor that helps to ensure your shot is correctly exposed, even in difficult lighting conditions.

Easy shooting, amazing results

The EOS 600D's new, fully automatic, Scene Intelligent Auto mode makes it easy for you to capture outstanding quality shots easily. Allowing you to focus exclusively on framing your picture, Scene Intelligent Auto mode analyses the scene for you and automatically picks the best settings to capture it. Your images will look better than ever thanks to the new Picture Style Auto that automatically makes fine adjustments to colours while you concentrate on capturing the scene.

The EOS 600D also makes it easy for you to instantly add creativity to your pictures. You can change the atmosphere of a scene with the Basic+ mode, which allows you to pick the mood you want to achieve from one of eight options, including 'Warm', 'Cool' or 'Intense'. Whether you're shooting landscapes, portraits, or close-up macro shots Basic+ makes it easy to capture the perfect image.

Simple, flexible, artistic

Ideal for beginners, a Feature Guide has been added to the EOS 600D's menu system - this offers a brief description of each key setting and its effect, helping you learn more about the camera as you use it.

The EOS 600D's Vari-angle 7.7cm 3:2 ratio ClearView LCD allows you to shoot overhead, at ground level or around corners and is extremely useful when shooting EOS Movie footage. The LCD's rich on-screen detail is provided in 1.04 million-dot resolution, and the side-mounted hinge allows users to comfortably and creatively shoot from a range of unusual angles, or when using a tripod. A smudge-resistant fluorine coating and three anti-reflection coatings also ensure you can see the LCD in clear detail, wherever you are.

Allowing you to apply your own stamp to your shots, the EOS 600D is perfect for experimenting with different Creative Filters. Fisheye-Effect creates a barrel-shaped distortion similar to a fisheye lens, and you can instantly turn a scene into a small-scale model with Miniature Effect. Toy Camera Effect, Grainy B/W and Soft Focus offer additional options, allowing you to experiment with your images in a number of different ways.

Capture Full HD EOS Movies

Capture your memories in superb clarity with Full HD (1080p) movie mode, while a dedicated movie shooting mode means you can switch quickly between stills and HD video capture. You can also reach distant subjects using the Movie Digital Zoom function, which crops the centre of the sensor from 3x to 10x while still maintaining Full HD quality - this is great for capturing wildlife on a safari holiday.

Enabling you to capture more engaging videos, Video Snapshot mode shoots video in two, four, or eight second segments, creating clips that are short, easy to edit and of similar lengths to clips used in most TV programmes. As they are recorded, the clips are saved to a Video Snapshot Album and combined into one movie. A soundtrack can be added by choosing from tracks uploaded to the camera and the result viewed on the camera's LCD, or on an HDTV via the built-in mini HDMI connection.

Flash features

Using Canon's range of Speedlite flashguns and the EOS 600D's Integrated Speedlite Transmitter, you can also experiment with different lighting techniques, or use your flash off-camera, to give your subject or scene a completely different look and feel. With the Easy Wireless function, the camera will take care of the settings whilst you focus on framing and lighting your scene as you wish.

The EOS 1100D

Designed as a user-friendly, powerful, entry-level DSLR, the EOS 1100D features an impressive specification that includes technologies that have been previously developed for more advanced EOS DSLRs, such as the iFCL metering system from the EOS 7D.

A 12.2 Megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor enables A3-size images to be recorded or cropped for exciting compositions, without compromising on image quality or print size, while DIGIC 4 image processing allows you to freeze the action with high-speed JPEG shooting at 3 frames per second.

Low light subjects can be captured with minimal noise and without resorting to using a flash thanks to a sensitive ISO range of 100-6400, and the fast, accurate nine-point autofocus (AF) system ensures the subject is in focus no matter where they may stand in the frame. The EOS 1100D also uses the same iFCL metering system developed for the semi-professional EOS 7D, ensuring all subjects are well-exposed, even in the most challenging lighting conditions.

Advanced imaging made easy

Compact and lightweight, the EOS 1100D is a highly versatile DSLR that's easy to carry, allowing you to capture any moment in stunning quality. When a scene lends itself to video as well as stills, 720p HD video capture is easily accessible via the dedicated movie function on the camera's mode dial. Never miss a moment of the action as you frame your image easily and accurately through the newly designed, bright optical viewfinder, offering 95% coverage of the scene. Alternatively, you can use Live View to see how different shooting modes will affect the final image on the large rear screen.

You'll be able to take great images as soon as you start using the EOS 1100D. A Feature Guide in the menu system offers a brief description of each key camera setting and its effect, thus helping beginners to learn about their camera as they use it.

Basic+ and Creative Auto modes remove any confusing technical terms, using plain language to describe settings and their effect on the final image. You can apply a different ambience to a scene with Basic+ adjusting exposure, white balance and image processing settings according to easy-to-understand pre-sets based on the creative intent or lighting type. Alternatively, using Creative Auto you can use the blur background slider to create more interesting results.

Shoot and share anywhere

The EOS 1100D also makes it easier to shoot and instantly share your images and HD video with friends and family. The camera's large 6.8cm (2.7") LCD screen features a sharp 230k-dot resolution and wide viewing angle, making it easy to review the day's shoot immediately. Alternatively, sit back and enjoy big-screen image playback by connecting the EOS 1100D directly to an HDTV via HDMI, using the TV remote control to scroll through images and enjoy your own high-quality video.

Thanks to support for Eye-Fi Connected Functions (subject to country specific Eye-Fi compatibility) EOS 1100D users can wirelessly transfer their images to a home PC. Alternatively you can bypass this stage completely and upload images and video direct to an online sharing account like the Canon Image Gateway (CiG) or Flickr - inspiring everyone to share, special, fun and creative photography.
