The Canon EOS 1100D entry level DSLR with 18-55mm IS II lens offers EOS imaging power in an affordable, easy-to-use package. With a 12.2 megapixel CMOS sensor and technology inherited from Canon’s professional models, it ensures crisp, sharp images even in low-light conditions. The Canon EOS 1100D combines exceptional still shooting with the ability to shoot HD (720p) video. To satisfy your creativity it features full manual control and selectable frame rates. The Canon EOS 1100D allows continuous shooting of large JPEG images at speeds of up to 3 frames per second, while the wide-area Auto Focus system uses 9 separate focusing points to track your subject. Canon’s built-in dust prevention system guards images against dust. The EOS 1100D features a cropped sensor and is compatible with both Canon’s EF-S and EF lenses. More
February 2011 - This morning (7th Feb) Canon have announced the introduction of TWO new digital SLR cameras into their EOS line-up. I was invited to Canon UK’s HQ in Woodhatch to see what the new models would be and, more importantly, have a little play with them. Read our EOS 600D and EOS 1100D Preview...
A great starter lens for general purpose shooting
The Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II lens offers Canon DSLR owners the flexibility to shoot everything from sweeping landscapes to portraits. A lightweight construction means it’s easy to carry, and Canon’s acclaimed optical Image Stabilization offers a 4-stop advantage to ensure sharp images at maximum zoom and when shooting in low light. With a focal length equivalent of 29-88mm in 35mm format, the lens’ wide zoom range is suitable for most general photography. For close-up work, the working distance is just 0.25m (25cm) throughout the zoom range.
12-megapixel resolution Step up to DSLR image quality with a 12-megapixel APS-C-sized sensor. A 14-bit DIGIC 4 image processor provides 3.2fps continuous shooting and images that are packed with detail and tonal range. APS-C is a type of digital camera sensor with an integral x1.6 magnification factor. This means that for all lenses (Canon, Sigma & Tamron) you have to x the focal length of your lens by the crop factor, which is 1.6 (Nikon 1.5). For example - Canon 50mm x 1.6 = 80mm. For a camera with a cropped sensor the field of view you actually get is 80mm.
Intuitive, on-screen feature guide The EOS 1100D’s Feature Guide provides descriptions of many of the camera’s functions, as well as advice on how to use them in your own photography.
Easy to use Scene modes and Basic+ Theme-based Scene modes automatically pick the most suitable exposure, focus and drive-mode settings for the subject being photographed, while Creative Auto mode portrays adjustable functions in an easy to understand way. With Canon’s Basic + technology, the look and feel of these basic auto modes can be fine-tuned according to ambience and lighting type.
HD EOS Movie mode Shoot stunning HD video at 25 or 30fps, with automatic exposure control leaving you free to concentrate on the action. Footage can be edited on your PC or Mac, or played directly on an HD TV via the camera’s HDMI connection.
ISO 100-6400 sensitivity Low-light shooting without flash is possible thanks to the EOS 1100D’s ISO 100-6400 sensitivity range. The camera’s 14-bit DIGIC 4 processor helps to control noise and maintain image quality.
Wide-area 9-point AF system The EOS 1100D focuses quickly and accurately on static and moving subjects, thanks to nine AF points, spread out across the frame. A central cross-type AF point is sensitive to both horizontal and vertical lines.
63-zone iFCL exposure metering Advanced iFCL exposure metering dissects a scene into 63-zones before analyzing it to find the perfect combination of shutter speed, aperture and ISO.
6.8cm (2.7”), 230,000-dot LCD screen Compose and review images on a large 230,000-dot LCD screen, which also provides access to the camera’s menu system and Quick Control Screen.
Use with all EF and EF-S lenses The EOS 1100D is supported by the complete range of EOS lenses and accessories: flashguns, remote releases and a system of more than 60 lenses trusted by professional photographers the world over.

I would recommend this camera
The camera is very easy to get to know and it only takes a little practice to begin to produce super photos. I use it on holiday and at home. Good for distance and close up shots. It is easy to carry and transport. I am enjoying experimenting with it. If you do make a mistake it is very easy to delete and start again.

Fantastic camera for a beginner
About Me Casual user, Getting started, Hobbyist/Enthusiast
I bought this for my son, he likes to take sunset images on his phone so i thought this would allow him more creativity and guess what it does. he is planing on taking this on a trip to Africa next year and again this will fit in his bag very easily due to its size,i am looking forward to seeing the results. all in all this is a great little camera for the money and when you are ready to upgrade the learning curve wont be to hard as it has a great set of features that you find on the higher end in the Canon range. expect good results but bear in mind this is aimed at the beginner not the pro photographer, but i find it very capable of good images.

About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast
I bought this little gem over a year ago to record my wifes equestrian adventures, showjumping and eventing Over 9000 pictures later I'm still amazed at what it can do. With a second hand EF 70-200 lens picture quality is incredible.It has been rained on,dropped and covered in horse drool. It does everything I need and more for not a lot of money.I'd like more than 3 fps, but then again this makes me concentrate more on my timing.

Picture quality is excellent - glad I went for a DSLR rather than another compact.

About Me Casual user, Getting started, Occasional Professional
I use the 1100D for outside shotsmainly, occasional portrait pics for business. The basics are unshiftably in place - speed, basic settings, focus and flash options. But I can't help thinking I am missing out, partly due to my lack of expertise (my problem!) but also due tho the lack of intuitive usability of the on-screen graphics and data. Maybe this will come in time - or perhaps a 'intermediate getting started' insert might help explain the features and how to use them. I appreciate we are in a world where just expect everything to work without effort. And I did want a unit 'one up from the point and press' devices. But usability testing on novices might be revealing to those who are expert manufacturers. Best wishes, Tom
Great for your first full SLR camera.
