Product Features
  • 18 MP CMOS sensor
    Ideal for those who want to create large, poster-size prints - or crop images without losing any of the detail necessary for printing - EOS 550D's 18MP CMOS sensor is outstanding in low light, and produces images with incredibly low noise.
  • DIGIC 4
    Canon's DIGIC 4 processor works with the CMOS sensor to deliver 14-bit image processing, for smooth gradations and natural looking colors. DIGIC 4 also powers advanced Noise Reduction when shooting at higher ISO speeds, plus split-second start-up times and near-instant image review after shooting.
  • High ISO for low light
    When light levels fall, the EOS 550D offers an ISO range of up to 6400 - expandable to 12800 for those environments where using flash is undesirable.
  • Full HD movie recording
    The EOS 550D combines exceptional still shooting with the ability to shoot Full HD (1080p) video. To satisfy your creativity the EOS 550D features full manual control and selectable frame rates. You can also shoot high speed 50/60fps movies at 720P for when the action is really fast. An HDMI connection allows High Definition playback of footage and images on any HDTV. Also with compatible TVs playback can be controlled using the TV's remote control.
  • 7.7cm (3.0") 3:2 Clear View LCD
    Detailed checks on images and video are possible with a 7.7cm (3.0") 3:2 Clear View LCD screen, which features an ultra-high 1,040,000 dots for increased clarity. Switch to Live View mode and use the real-time visual feed to shoot from awkward angles.
  • iFCL metering system
    A 63-zone dual layer metering sensor analyzes focus, color and luminance information, providing accurate and consistent metering.
  • Quick Control screen
    Accessible using a dedicated button it provides easy access to commonly used functions, ensuring that you are ready to take the shot as it happens.
  • External microphone socket
    Add an additional microphone for better quality sound using the 3.5mm stereo jack socket.
  • Movie crop
    Shoot VGA movies with an effective zoom of 7x. Movie crop uses only the center part of the sensor and allows long distance shooting without having to change lenses.
  • Create a shooting system as unique as you are

Reviews & Research

CNET Editors' reviewVery Good

  • THE GOOD

    "Fast performance; excellent photo quality; above average video-capture quality."

  • THE BAD

    "Annoying viewfinder; irritating control layout for video capture."

  • THE BOTTOM LINE

    "A great follow-up to the T1i, if you want the best photo and video quality in a dSLR for less than $1,000, the Canon EOS Rebel T2i is hard to beat."

Best Camera Ever !

I wanted to buy a camera in the range of $1300 with its kit. I was going to buy the Canon 500D but a friend recommended the 550D since its called the "baby 7D" and it is 18mp while the 500D is a 15mp.

The Canon is easy to use and have a lot of features, accessories, and lenses that a person can buy in order to become a professional photographer. Also the Canon comes with a CD that has utilities to edit the photo's and to easily deal with them.

I highly recommend everyone who wants to buy an SLR Digital Camera, to buy a Canon in a three digit mode such as XXX D and then buy a more professional one, but the 550D just fits my style a lot !!

The lenses and the flash that came in the kit were Canon and are the best thing that are in the kit !

Each lens has a special function and the flash helps a lot !!

It was nice to deal with the dealer. Hope to deal with him again !!
