I honestly dont understand the T3i / 600D's release...
Feb 7, 2011

So Canon had a much loved t2i/550D because of its same sensor as the 7D, but stripped down so it could be bought for much less $.

Then Canon decides to make a 'in between level' camera, the 60D, and positions it nicely between the 550D and the 7D in terms of price and features, while still provide the same quality.

Okay, that one I understand. But now, what is going on?

Why release a small upgrade to the 550D and add a couple of features from the 60D to it and make it almost the same price?

Am I missing something? What is the difference between the 550D and 600D except the swivel screen and manual audio (and the crop mode for video)? And what is the difference between the 600D and the 60D now except a slight different in size and a top lcd panel?

So now there are 4 camera's to choose from with all minor price differences and minor differences in features / size, with all the same sensor...

I am really surprised! Am I missing some features maybe?
