Sensor Review
Introduction | Compared to Nikon D5000 & Sony A55 | Compared to EOS 550D: Improvement? | Conclusion


The new EOS 600D brings no improvement over the 550D other than a few features. The two sensors perform exactly the same, and show the same persistent noise problem in dark areas at low ISO speeds, preventing it from achieving good dynamic range metrics. By contrast, Sony’s new sensors have efficiently solved this issue. Competition may be tough between Sony and Nikon, but Canon continues to lag behind them both.
