Canon EOS 600D - Sample Images

Zoom – wideangle

Used at 18mm the Canon 18-135mm IS kit lens is able to fit

plenty in the frame, although it does produces some notable barrel distortion.

This isn’t quite so noticeable in this image as the vertical lines of the

building are closer to the centre of the frame. The next image demonstrates it

more clearly.

100, 18mm, AWB)


Zoom – telephoto

At 135mm the 18-145mm kit lens has produced an image

displaying good levels of sharpness and detail. There is, under close

examination, some unwanted purple fringing in the windows.

(1/100sec @ f/8, ISO 100, 135mm, AWB)



Using the ‘Landscape’ Picture Style has increased the

vibrancy of both the cherry blossom and the blue sky behind it, with fairly pleasing


(1/640sec @ f/8, ISO 200, 53mm, AWB)


Soho Dragon

Even with the sensitivity cranked up to ISO 3200, there is

still plenty of detail visible when this image of a Chinese dragon is viewed at


(1/100sec @ f/8, ISO3200, AWB)



Shot through a shop window, the bright display lights have

fooled the 600D’s evaluative metering system here into slightly overexposing

the image

(1/60sec @ f/5.6, ISO 800, 126mm, AWB)


Paddle Boat

The 600D’s 63-segment evaluative metering has performed well,

with only some very minor highlight loss in some of the white-painted areas of

the boat in direct sunshine.

(1/400sec @ f/8, ISO 200, 100mm, AWB)


Flowers and Statue

By selecting the A-Dep shooting mode we’ve asked the 600D to

maximise the depth of field and yet it’s selected an aperture of just f/3.5.

There’s also some nasty purple fringing on the edges of the statue that really need

fixing in post production.

(1/500sec @ f/3.5, ISO 200, 18mm, AWB)



In this quick grab of a passing squirrel we’ve raised the

ISO to compensate for using the zoom at its telephoto extreme, thereby ensure a

fast enough shutter speed to keep the main subject sharp. With the Image

Stabilisation feature of the kit lens switched on this has produced a good
