Canon announced the EOS 1100D last month aiming it squarly at those looking to get on the first step of the photography ladder. And Canon has now announced that you will be able to get a version of the EOS 1100D in a colour to match your fashion sense.
Canon told PhotoPlus magazine that the 1000D replacement would now come in fetching red, silver and brown versions as well as the standard black model. However the coloured versions won’t be available just anywhere with certain retailers nabbing exclusives to sell the colourful cameras. The red camera will go on sale in Comet with a price tag of £499 when bundled with the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II lens. The silver version will be similarly priced when it goes on sale exclusively in Jessops with the same lens.
To obtain the brown version however, you’ll have to cross the Irish Sea to Harvey Norman in Ireland where it will also go on sale for £499 with the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II lens. The £499 price tag is £40 more than the same bundle will cost with the plain black body, while the body-only cost of the EOS 1100D will be £419. All models will be released in early April.
The EOS 1100D (known as the Rebel T3 in the States) features a 12.2 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, the same iFCL Metering system developed for the EOS 7D, and also offers 720p HD video capture.
