Over all Review of Canon EOS 550D SLR Body

Canon EOS 550D SLR Body Price

Overall Review

Canon EOS 550D is the latest SLR in the consumer focused EOS camera series. This Canon camera sports an 18 megapixel optical sensor and is capable of shooting at a Full HD resolution (1920x1080). The camera uses a 22.3 x 14.9 mm CMOS sensor powered with a DIGIC 4 processor. The Canon EOS 550D uses the standard 3:2 aspect ratio and is a suitable buy for first time DSLR buyers or enthusiasts. It's fantastic for HD movies and great for low-light, high-ISO shooting, but, in terms of ordinary, everyday stills photography, it offers little advantage over other cameras. Under the skin, the Canon T2i brings a few features from Canon's EOS 7D model into a Rebel-class body, creating a brother to the 7D.

Design and Build Quality

Apparently designed to appeal to first-time DSLR buyers and enthusiasts, it offers a lot more technology, and at a higher price, than we might expect for a camera aimed squarely at this sector. Although it might seem logical for the 550D to replace the EOS 500D, the older camera is set to continue in Canon's lineup, which leaves the 550D pinched between its entry-level and nominally enthusiast peers. Confusingly however, apart from build quality (which is all but identical to the 550D has more in common with the  EOS 7D, and - perhaps even more confusingly - it out-specifies the EOS 50D in many areas. The body is the same light but tough polycarbonate plastic over a steel chassis, and the physical dimensions are almost identical at 128.8 x 97.3 x 62mm. The 550D is approximately the same weight too, weighing 526g body-only but including battery and memory card, making it quite a bit smaller and lighter than the other cameras. The handling and balance of the camera are as good as you'd expect from Canon, with a large rubber-coated handgrip and a large thumb-grip area on the back. 

Focus and Face Detection

There are three auto focus options in Live View, including Quick, Live and Face Detection. The use of the Quick mode briefly interrupts the live view feed as the mirror is momentarily lowered so that the AF sensors can be engaged, and it also involves a lot of mirror slapping for the same reason. Live view mode circumvents this problem by employing a contrast-detect method. While this is slower, and sometimes it may still take up to three seconds for the camera to lock focus in this mode, It has found that about half a second was enough most of the time. This is still too slow for anything that moves - use the optical finder and the regular auto focus module for that type of shooting - but it is perfectly satisfactory with still subjects. Obviously, a user can also opt to focus manually - the large and high-resolution screen is a real boon to those who do this on a regular basis. As noted above, user can even magnify into the live image, by up to 10 x, which allows very accurate focusing.

Lens and Image Stabilization

Canon's has been trying to expand its range of consumer cameras especially in the mid-range area, launching the 15-megapixel EOS 500D towards the end of last year, and now following it up with a new mid-range model, the EOS 550D. The EOS 550D is available for just under £700 body only, or around £750 with the kit 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 EF-S image-stabilized lens.

Screen and Menus

Most of the retooling and rethinking can be found on the back of the Canon T2i. Though it's subtle, Canon's switch from a 4:3 screen to a 3:2 screen has a dramatic effect on where some of the controls land, and may contribute to the one millimeter reduction in the Canon T2i's height. Button design has changed quite a bit on the Canon T2i, moving from primarily circular buttons with nothing printed on them to larger shaped buttons, some with words and icons printed on them. It does make the labels clearer, especially with reduced real estate for labels next to buttons because of the wide-aspect LCD. The variation in button shapes also makes them easier to identify without removing your eye from the viewfinder. Live View / Movie Recording has a new button in prime position for easy thumb activation, just right of the optical viewfinder. 

Battery

The Canon 550D uses a new battery, the LP-E8 -- a 7.2V, 1120  mAh lithium-ion battery with concealed electrical contacts. Expected battery life is 440 shots at 72F, and 400 shots at 32F, based on CIPA testing standards which dictate 50% flash usage. 

Video Mode

The EOS 550D's top-mounted shooting mode dial has a multitude of letters and icons. The so-called Creative Zone features Programmed Auto (P), Shutter Priority (Tv), Aperture Priority (Av), Manual (M) and A-DEP modes. The first four of these need no explanation, but A-DEP might be new to those who have never used a Canon SLR camera before. The abbreviation stands for Automatic Depth of Field, as in this mode, the camera will pick an f-stop that allows all the subjects covered by the nine AF points to be sharply rendered, and will also calculate and set the necessary shutter speed on its own. The camera also has a Full Auto and a Creative Auto mode, differentiated by the amount of user control provided over certain image parameters; and a host of scene modes. These include Flash Off, Portrait, Landscape, Sports, Night Portrait and oddly enough for an interchangeable-lens camera, a close-up mode as well. The majority of these scene modes allow users who do not want to fiddle with shutter speeds, f-stops, white balance or ISO settings to let the camera know what type of photo they are about to take, which helps the EOS 550D / T2i to optimize these settings for that particular subject

Sensors

The 18Mp CMOS sensor gives a wider range of true ISO sensitivities than its predecessor, without having to enable the ISO expansion option in the menu. ISO6, 400 now comes as a standard option, providing a little more headroom for low-light shooting than its predecessor. An equivalent of ISO12, 800 can also be enabled through the ISO expansion option. The Auto ISO option has also been tweaked, with the ability to specify a maximum ISO being added. This is a welcome addition, as it will allow the user to prevent the camera from hiking the ISO too high to prevent camera shake. The Canon EOS T2i's design is based around a DIGIC 4 image processor and a newly developed CMOS image sensor that's very closely related to the chip 

Pros

The canon 500D is featured with excellent high-definition movie mode has a good high-ISO performance. It is offered with great design and layout which attracts the users. 

Cons

Details provided could be crisper than it is presently offered by this digital cam. Canon 550D needs a better and decent lens kit which could improve its functionalityand it is bit Pricey for an amateur camera.

Canon EOS 550D is an 18.0 megapixel digital single-lens reflex camera endorsed with CMOS sensor. It features HD video recording facilities and has 3.5mm jack for external microphones or recorders. Canon EOS 550D was later succeeded by 600D and 650D. The video output of the camera is PAL/NTSC and supports DIGIC 4 image processor. The analog to digital signal conversion is 14-bit which gives crystal clear images. Canon EOS 550D has 3 inch LCD monitor with an aspect ratio of 3:2. It also has built-in-flash which is auto pop-up and retractable. The Auto Focus (AF) feature is wide, selectable, nine point with center cross-type sensor. It also features highlight tone priority and works in four metering modes, using 63-zones: spot, partial, center-weighted average, and evaluative metering. Moreover Canon EOS 550D has EOS integrated cleaning system and houses a monaural microphone. The approximate weight of the camera is 0.53 kg including battery and card which runs on LP-E8 battery. It supports USB 2.0 and has HDMI control along with SD, SDHC and SDXC memory card file storage. It allows RAW and large JPEG simultaneous recording. Canon EOS 550D comes along with a bundle of soft wares including Photo stitch, Picture style editor, etc. Various optional accessories are also available like the Wireless Remote Controller, HDMI Cable, Angle Finder, etc. It operates on an open source firmware add-on name magic lantern, which has enhancements for video and still photography without replacing the stock firmware. The dimension of the camera is (HxBxL) 97.5mm x 128.8mm x 75.3mm respectively. It has two shooting modes: one is still photo shoot mode and the other is video mode or movie mode. Canon EOS 550D has white-balancing modes, like the daylight mode, auto mode, tungsten mode, etc. which comes with a two years manufacturer warranty. Canon EOS 550D has an external mic socket and is able to shoot up to 3.5 fps. Even the images can be enhanced using the crop image feature. Features that favor Canon EOS 550D are quality build, high resolution 18MP sensor, superb ISO performance, intelligent metering, and full HD movie recording. There are some features which prove to be a shortcoming for Canon EOS 550D such as, it has plastic body along with low grade and basic kit lens. Again, the optical view finder is cramped and the top dial is cluttered. Even the auto focus is clunky.
