Upgrade from 450d - 550d or 600d?
Apr 5, 2012

Wife's currently using the 450d, taking mostly baby pictures indoors. I'm thinking of upgrading her to 550d or 600d, have a few questions since I haven't followed much the evolution of the Rebel line

  • is noise around ISO 800-1600 improved on 550d/600d? How many stops better than 450d? (in jpeg)

  • my understanding is the sensor is the same on 550d and 600d?

  • more generally, is the 600d worth the extra money over 550d? we've never used much flip screens - what other features are significantly better on the 600d? So far we've not taken any video (could be interested, but we never tried). I don't mind paying the extra 100-150$, but only if this is for extra features that she would use.

Thanks!
