Those are the key points of the Interview:
– “We do not need CSC (Compact System Cameras ) because our current range covers all fields. In the future we’ll see.
– “It is not just in size, but of balance between performance and ergonomics. I dare not say that the EOS 1100D SLR is the smallest that we can build.
– And regarding the X100 Canon said: “$ 1,000 is a lot of money for a compact,”

Photographyblog tested the Canon 600D (T3i)

Mark Goldstein from Photographyblog tested the Canon 600D: “In terms of the competition, things have heated up since the 550D / T2i was launched, with Sony in particular putting the cat amongst the proverbial pigeons with the video-tastic A55, while Nikon’s older D3100 looks a little less tempting now in terms of features but is cheaper, not to mention some of the better and crucially smaller compact system cameras. This mid-range area of the market has certainly become very competitive in the last 18 months. Despite that, the Canon EOS 600D / Rebel T3i cleverly occupies a position that’s mid-way between the 550D and the 7D without being subjected to a price increase on launch. It’s the most capable yet friendly Rebel yet, and easily worthy of our Highly Recommended award.
