This review is from: Canon EOS 600D Digital SLR Camera (inc. 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II Lens Kit) - (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Camera)
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.
