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.

UPDATE: Vincent Laforet and the 5D markIV joke

UPDATE: Vincent told contacted us and confessed that this was a joke. The german magazine pc.de made a “mistake” (or worser… told you a “lie”) and thought Vincent was talking about the real Canon 5D markII successor.
