Apparently, the Canon EOS 600D / Rebel T3i will arrive next week (near certainly on Friday 11 February) when Canon will announce it to the world. But it is already possible to describe most of its characteristics from what has been leaked in the recent hours.
- 18MP APS-C digital sensor
- Continuous shooting: 3.7 frames/s
- 3″ LCD screen, orientable
- Digic IV processor
- full HD video, with “video snapshot mode” to grab a photo in mid-video
- Autofocus: Improved LiveView AF
- Electronic Level
- New in-body flash or newly styled flash
- Improved menu system, with easier newcomer assistance
This kind of camera would serious competitor even for the Canon EOS 60D which should stay much higher priced than the Canon EOS 600D.
