The digital SLR market is dominated by two players: Canon and Nikon. This is reflected in our August top rated list for digital cameras, with Pentax being the only other vendor getting a look in. We haven't included any Sony cameras in the list as we are yet to review any of the latest models, nor did we include the [[artnid:379212|Olympus E-5]], because we didn't rate it highly enough.
We haven't included Micro Four Thirds cameras or other types of mirror-less cameras in this list because they are not quite the same as a digital SLR -- we have a separate list for those cameras.
6 / 10
Canon's EOS 600D is one of the cheaper digital SLR cameras the company offers -- it's a slight drop in price from the slightly superior 60D -- but it's still got a lot of the technology from more expensive models. It's able to take excellent quality photos even in poor lighting, and amateurs will like its versatile screen and shooting guide. We do think the controls could be more newbie-friendly, and the menu's vast array of options isn't welcoming to anyone unfamiliar with Canon cameras.
