My Canon EOS 600D Mini Review

I’ve had the chance to use a the Canon EOS 600D (AKA Rebel T3i in the US market and Kiss X5 in the Japanese market) digital SLR camera so here is my mini review for this camera. This is my third of the entry level XXXD/Rebel series camera I’ve used (My first d/SLR was the original 300D/digital Rebel back in 2004 when it was the first ‘affordable’ digital SLR camera on the market) and I also owned a 500D. The 600D is being marketed as a high end entry level/enthusiast camera in the current lineup and is positioned between the 500D and the 60D which all use the same 18 megapixel sensor.…

The Body

The Canon EOS 600D sees the first change in design since the 450D where Canon used the same basic shape and layout design over the next 2 generations (500D and 550D) the 600D is slightly bigger then

My Nikon D90 Mini Review

I had a Nikon D90 earlier this year but never got around to writing my mini review for the camera when I had it, so here it is now!…

The Nikon D90 is Nikon’s “Enthusiast” model which fits in between the D5000 high end entry level model and the Semi pro D300 and would be the equivalent to Canon’s XXD series. The D90 was also the first d/SLR to feature video. The Nikon D90 features a 12.3 megapixel 1.5x crop sensor, and ISO range from 100-6400.

The Body

The Nikon D90, like it’s predecessors has a plastic (polycarbonate) body with a metal chassis. The build quality was very good though! Probably the best plastic bodied camera I’ve owned, and very well built. Nikon covers most of the plastic up with rubber, so it doesn’t feel plasticky, and the camera feels very solid. The D90 is also light we

My Canon EOS 7D Mini Review

Now that I’ve had the chance to use my EOS 7D and get familiar with the new camera, here is my mini review.…

The Body

Canon have done a great job with the build quality with the 7D, it’s very solid, and well built, and it feels somewhat better then the XXD series. The camera is about the same size as a 5DMkII and feels very comfortable to hold. The body kind of reminds me of my old Nikon D300, and Canon have now made all the rear buttons larger (Similar in size as what you get on a Nikon body) and they have also worked on the sensitivity of the buttons. To delete a photo, you need to press down hard on the delete button, I’m assuming this is to prevent accidentally deleting your photos.

Canon have now got rid of the 2 step on/off button found on the XXD series and on the 5DMkII and now hav
