This review is from: Canon EOS 550D Digital SLR Camera (Body Only) (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
I bought this camera as an upgrade to the 400D(4years old) and cannot put the thing down. As a hobbiest the camera has many options that a few years ago would be considered a professional camera(costing £1000's) with the added feature of being a full HD camcorder, being able to use the lens as well, although at 330Mb memory needed per minute you need a huge memory card(not available yet). The features/options this camera gives you are just stunning. I recently went to Istanbul and tested the camera, at gone midnight, hand held shots only at 6400/12800 ISA and was impressed with the outcome. Worth upgrading, not a beginners camera, you need to know something about photiography to get the best out of it.
