Canon EOS 600D
Advantages: 1040k display that flips out and tilts, great image quality for class
Disadvantages: Price,lacks extra features,no video autofocus,only 9 focus points
The canon 600d has an impressive 17.9mp APS-C 22.3*14.9 sized sensor which performs very well from my personal experience the kit featuring an 18-55mm image stabilization lens which fits snugly into place on the EF mount on the other side there if a 3 inch fantastic 1040k dot resolution display which is the best currently on the market the screens also flips out which is a useful feature in some situations the menu is user friendly and very clear, the camera also features a pop up flash as well as a hot shoe for an external microphone as well as the flash. Also include in the roughly £500 costing camera is a video mode that shoots 1080 24fps the best you can get basically but a big let no video autofocus a massive disappointment for many canon users. In terms of low light performance there is a maximum ISO of 6400 which is expandable to 12800 very useful in low light situations, in terms of focusing it has only 9 focus points which is no real change to the previous models. At this price point in the market i would expect there to be some eye raising features such as 3D photos,a GPS and some colour effects that are included in models from Sony and Olympus in the case of Olympus costing £200 less with a more compact body
In conclusion the 600d has superior image quality to other models in class and low light performance but it lacks special features that for me separate it between the D5100 which I rate as better
Summary: For me the 600d is purely a photo camera that provides very high quality pictures for around £500
