This review is from: Canon EOS 600D Digital SLR Camera (inc. 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II Lens Kit) (Electronics)I bought this camera as my first DSLR and I'm very pleased with it. The picture quality is amazing and the camera is fairly easy to use even if like me you don't know much about DSLR cameras.
The video modes manual audio control with the option of an external mic and the option of selecting frame rates is great. 24p, 25p and 50p with PAL and 24p, 30p and 60p with NTSC.
There is no continuous autofocus during video recording but you can set the focus up before with the shutter button and then manually focus during recording. The autofocus duing video is too slow and inaccurate. This orginally put me off the camera as I was buying it mainly for video but if you prepare your shots and use the manual focus when needed it should be just as good as a normal video camera.
As for the reviews that say it feels plasticy I have not found this. It feels solid and well built.
The tilting screen is great for video and doesn't feel flimsy or loose.
Definitely a good purchase- Well worth the money.

This is a good review, but one thing came to my attention and that is whether you think it's value for money at the end of the day, since I've been thinking of getting a DSLR, not necessarily this type, but one of similar (probably cheaper) calibre.
Do you think Canon offer good software with the camera? Or do you use third-party software?

Sorry about the late reply... The software that canon provides is very confusing and not easy to use at all. I personally find no use for it anyway as I use Sony Vegas to edit videos and just put my photos straight on the computer. Don't let this put you off the actual camera though. I've had it for over 6 months now and it's one of my best buys yet. I didn't buy it off amazon though... I spent a little bit more and went to Currys as I wanted the Knowhow insurance policy on such an expensive item. I didn't want to risk breakage and stuff like that.
