High Resolution Still capture

The EOS 550D has an 18.0 Megapixel CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) sensor that captures images with exceptional clarity and tonal range and offers more than enough resolution for big enlargements or crops. This first-class sensor features many of the same new technologies as used by professional Canon cameras to maximize each pixel's light-gathering efficiency. Its APS-C size sensor creates an effective 1.6x field of view (compared to 35mm format).

DIGIC 4 Image Processor

The Canon DIGIC 4 Image Processor dramatically speeds up the entire EOS 550D's camera operations for intuitive operation and offers improvements in both fine detail and natural color reproduction. It works in concert with the EOS 550D's CMOS Image Sensor to achieve phenomenal levels of performance in nearly any situation.

Brilliant results, be it Day or Night

The EOS 550D features an expanded ISO range that makes shooting possible in situations previously unthinkable without flash. With an ISO rating up to 6400 (expandable to ISO 12800), along with the DIGIC 4 Image Processor's improved noise-reduction technology, creative possibilities abound. Combine the EOS 550Dwith one of Canon's EF or EF-S lenses with Optical Image Stabilizer and the shooting possibilities for both movies and stills expand even further.

HD Video

Designed for the evolving, tech-savvy user, the EOS 550D features HD Video capture technologies – manual exposure control for more creative control, for example – borrowed directly from professional Canon SLRs to capture stellar video with all the benefits of shooting with an SLR. By shooting video with the EOS 550D, photographers as well as filmmakers can take advantage of the creative features native to SLR cameras. Along with its manual controls, the EOS 550D allows for full use of Canon EF and EF-S lenses, including Macro and Fisheye, providing a plethora of shooting options once reserved only for still photography. The resulting HD video is a standout in its beautiful depth-of-field characteristics and remarkable capture capability under poor lighting conditions. In a first for EOS cameras, a Movie Crop function is included: An SD-quality movie (640 x 480) can be cropped to the equivalent of about 7x magnification of regular shooting.

Video can be captured at a number of resolutions and frame rates for numerous applications. It can capture 1920 x 1080 Full HD video at frame rates of 24 (23.976), 25 or 30 (29.97) frames per second, for up to 4GB per clip. Movies are saved as MOV files and can be viewed in Full HD through the EOS 550D's HDMI output. Other recording sizes include HD at 1280 x 720 (50/60 (59.94) fps) or SD/VGA at 640 x 480 (50/60 (59.94) fps). The EOS 550D has a built-in microphone for simple mono recording and stereo sound can be recorded through a self-powered external microphone.

Intelligent Scene Analysis

By measuring not only the amount of light, but also taking into account colour and luminosity, this new system delivers a very high level of accuracy for better results every time. Since the metering sensor has a colour measurement function, exposure errors and focus errors caused by different light sources are minimized; the EOS 550D gives stable exposure from shot to shot in situations where light changes, such as sports on a cloudy day, or indoor holiday scenes.Additionally, the EOS 550D has a high-precision, 9-point AF system utilizing a high-precision, f/2.8 cross-type centre point. The 9-point AF system uses both normal and high-precision focus depending on the aperture and available light. The 9 focus points can be chosen automatically or manually selected.

Description: xx


Bigger and Better

The EOS 550D has a high-resolution 3.0-inch Clear View LCD monitor. It also has the same aspect ratio (3:2) as the camera's sensor, making for clear and easy Live View composition. An anti-reflective and water-repellent coating provides a clearer and more smudge-resistant surface and screen brightness can be adjusted in 7 steps in accordance with ambient light.

Customize your Shot...

The EOS 550D's refined button layout includes a dedicated button that directs the camera immediately to the Quick Control screen, where it's simple to navigate among any number of settings, including ISO, Exposure and Flash Exposure compensation, drive mode, white balance, image quality and much, much more.

Go from Still to Moving Images with the Press of a Button.


Without the need to navigate through a bunch of menus, the EOS 550D transitions effortlessly between still and movie mode. By pressing the Live View/Movie button, a situation that had required menu access with other cameras, still images can change to a movie shoot and vice versa. It’s literally as simple as the press of a button.


The EOS 550D is compatible with both SDXC memory cards for greater storage capacity and with Eye-Fi SD cards, which are outfitted with a Wi-Fi transmitter (IEEE 802.11b/g) and internal antenna for wireless, high-speed transfer of images. With an Eye-Fi card installed, the EOS 550D can display the Eye-Fi's connection status and error notes with ease, for fully functional wireless uploading of images directly from the camera.


Never Miss a Thing

The EOS 550D can shoot up to 3.7 frames per second (fps) for up to approximately 6 consecutive RAW files or approximately 34 full-resolution JPEGs. Shooting at speeds of up to 1/4000 sec., the EOS 550D can capture even rapidly-unfolding scenes with ease.

EF Lenses
The EOS 550D is compatible with all Canon lenses in the EF line-up, including compact and lightweight EF-S lenses, ranging from ultra-wide angle to super telephoto lenses. Canon lenses employ advanced optical expertise and micron-precision engineering to deliver outstanding performance and deliver beautiful results. Special technologies like the Canon Image Stabilizer technology in select lenses helps to minimize the effect of camera shake, effectively adding up to four stops of light. With a dizzying array of lenses perfect for travel, sports, still life and everything in between, photographers can truly maximize the quality and performance of their EOS 550Dwith superlative Canon optics.
