There’s a new entry-level digital SLR camera headed for the Canon range, the EOS 600D.

Notably new to an entry-level Canon camera is the addition of its 3-inch vari-angle clear view LCD screen, giving photographers a little more flexibility in shooting angles. The EOS 600D makes use of an 18 megapixel CMOS sensor and the DIG!C 4 image processor, and in addition to shooting stills it shoots high definition video.
