Re: 550D forever

I just upgraded from a compact to the 550D and I think it handles high ISO very well. The following pictures have been shot at 2500-3200 ISO with the 18-55 kit lens, hand-held and without flash, in situations where I tried to "stress" the camera. I would need to use a tripod to get the same shots with my compact.

WRT to the "hot sensor", IMO it's quite inconvenient to use the LCD screen to shoot and I've never used it except for testing. Fortunately, I discovered I like the viewfinder much better!

Also, the HD video is great but not easy to use like a videocamera or a compact in video mode, on the 550D it requires much more work from the operator.
