Coloured Canon EOS 1100Ds Coming Next Month

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.

What shade of red is that. I love the way that in a certain light it can look striking red, and in low level light it just looks dark/metallic and brooding red.

darkspark88- The top picture is the red and the bottom pic is from the rear of a brown model, just in case you thought they were both the red model varying in shade

I already had an irrational hatred of canon, it's just been added to. Of all the nasty marketing obsessed ploys they've come up with I didn't expect to see them do this. Canon bores will go on about how original an idea it is and probably think it makes them look like they HAVE an imagination. It's not and it won't. Pentax Km and Panasonic G got there first. Just try the Pentax instead. It WILL handle better, whatever the mag reviews say. It's tough having to wait three months for the next EOS xxxD model to see what pointless addition it'll have to ensnare the chavs. PS - rant over, and no, I'm not a Pentax user.

I'm finding myself quickly going off Canon too. They seem to be consistently last to every party now, coming up with no original ideas and just taking everyone else's. Remember the fanfare when they announced the 60D, with it's *drum roll* revolutionary flip screen! Charging £50 extra just for a different colour smacks of seriously taking the pee to me..

Also, why has there not been even a hint of a mirrorless system? The G series is looking ever more bloated and dated with each literation. Lastly, how long will Canon get away with charging extortionate amounts for lens hoods, when everyone else chucks them in for free?

*Moan over*
