It's only available in Full HD mode, and when set to 3x it crops into the central portion of the sensor, effectively producing a full-resolution output in which one sensor pixel corresponds to one output pixel.

The Canon EOS 600D's maximum shutter speed is 30 seconds and there's a Bulb mode for even longer exposures, which is excellent news if you're seriously interested in night photography.

At 135mm the 18-145mm kit lens has produced an image displaying good levels of sharpness and detail.

Another significant addition is the Wireless Flash option, which allows the camera's pop-up flash to be used as the master for other Speedlite flashguns.

JPEGs look very clean up through ISO 400, and even at ISO 800 you really have to scrutinize to see the beginnings of detail degradation; at ISO 1,600 the noise becomes more obvious but still isn't too bad.
