The Canon EOS 600D is an entry-level digital SLR camera sporting an 18Mp sensor, an amateur-friendly control interface and menu, and a 3in articulating LCD screen. It’s an excellent choice for shooting in automatic mode, and the photos and video it produces are impressive. And it’s those video-capture chops that make the EOS 600 stand out from a strong crowd: the EOS 600D is not only a great stills camera, but it’s a genuine option for high-quality filming, too.

About the PC Advisor Awards 2012
Our annual roll call of honour considers every piece of hardware and software that has passed through our Test Centre over the past year. We look for innovation and excellence, outstanding performance and value for money.
Only excellent products make the PC Advisor Awards shortlist, and we congratulate all the manufacturers represented on the list. If a product still looks great from the view point of up to a year after its first review, the chances are that it is great.
That does, however, mean that our PC Advisor Awards coverage is not necessarily a buyer’s guide – for that you should visit our Test Centre and Reviews. Some of the products may no longer be available, and in some categories they may have been superseded.
Whittling down the shortlist to pick out individual winners isn’t easy. In all cases arguments could be (and were) made for products other than the eventual winners. But winners there must be.
