Canon 550D

Hi all!

I'm thinking in this model for my next camera, so I would be very glad in hearing opinions ;)

Thank you very much!

I think you're better off with the 600D since it's technologically better.

Technologically better how?

The ONLY advantage 600D has over 550D is the swivel screen.

550D is cheaper and lighter.

Oh, how I miss a swivel screen. Otherwise it's a really great camera.

Thank you all! I don't care about swivel screen, so if that is the only difference... I will choose the more economic model (550 or 600)

It's not the only difference, but they say that it's the only advantage. :(

550D has lots of advantages over 600D, like:

3.7x less delay when turning on - about 1000 ms

Body around 30% smaller

Viewfinder a little bit larger

Less shutter lag - about 30ms less delay when taking photos

About 0,7" thinner

Slightly better image quality

Around 40g lighter

Great camera, no complaints besides it being a bit "toyish" (has a plastic feel to it), but its the inside that counts. Only thing I miss about my 30D is the fps speed and 1/8000 shutter speed. 7D .... *want* :-D
