When you are starting out and trying to figure out which DSLR suits you with a tight budget, some professional will suggest to get Canon EOS 1100D. Even though Canon EOS 1100D was released last year it is still famous because it is consider one of the best DSLR to start if you have a tight budget.
At the heart of the camera is a 12 Megapixel sensor which is almost certainly inherited from the earlier EOS XSi / 450D. The previous 7-point AF system has been upgraded to Canon’s standard 9-point system, and the metering now features the company’s latest 63-zone sensor, deployed across most of its current DSLRs. The screen’s bigger than before, and crucially there’s now HD Movie capabilities which were absent on its predecessor, albeit at a maximum of 720p. Interestingly there’s also a new body which houses the SD memory card slot alongside the battery under the camera. So again, it’s a good, solid specification for an entry-level DSLR, and one which meets a competitive price-point considering the big brand name.
At first glance the Canon EOS 1100D looks a great deal like its predecessor, and shares similar dimensions and weight, which just for the record is 495g for the body including battery. Take a closer look though and a number of key differences become apparent. Most obviously the finish feels completely different: it’s very plasticky and bereft of rubber coatings around grip areas. This inevitably gives it a cheaper look and feel compared to many DSLRs, but it’s no different to Sony’s and Panasonic’s budget interchangeable lens cameras.
