Canon EOS 600D comes after EOS 550D and introduces some new innovations which puts it in the rank of upper entry-level DSLRs.
Whats new in EOS 600D is
Scene Intelligent Auto: A fully automatic shooting mode that makes use of EOS Scene Detection System to analyze all aspects of the image the specificities regarding what is being shot, its distance, brightness, movement, color, contrast, etc and applies ideal exposure controls to capture great images
3-inch wide Vari-Angle Clear View LCD monitor: It contains over a million dots, and tilts and swivels on its hinge to allow the choice of using different perspectives for a shot
Basic+ and Feature Guide: Provides greater control over creative functions
Apart from these novel features, it retains most of the functionalities of the previous version, like 18 MP APSC CMOS sensor, DIGIC 4 image processor, ISO 100-6400, expendable to 12800, full HS recording in 24, 25 and 30 fps and Art Filters. So the innovations mainly bear upon updating the functionality of the older version rather than promoting the quality of image which remains the same.
