In what can only be described as a bizarre choice by Canon, the new low-end DSLR 1100D will be available in a red body. Initially I thought it was part of Bono’s product [Red] campaign again aids, but no, turns out not to be the case. The Canon website lists the red colour as ‘limited’ so who knows, maybe they just had a couple of tins of red paint lying around. Good news for traditionalists, the Canon 1100D is also available in black or metallic grey.

Colours aside, lets take a look at what’s new over the 1000D. There’s a bump in megapixels from 10.1 to 12.2 complete with DiG!C 4 Image Processor smarts, while the LCD screen has been increased from 2.5” to 2.7". A big addition for the entry-level Canon DSLR is 1280x720p video, something not available on the 1000D. Focusing gets a little smarter in this model with 9-point AF, up from the previous 7, will you notice this ? Probably not.

Unfortunately the cheap feeling plastic body is still the same, but hey if your price conscious, you’ve got to give up something. If you’ve never had a DSLR before, you’ll most likely be happy with the 1100D.

Like the 600D, pricing is still not announced, but the Canon 1100D will be available from March 2011.

    Sorry, I’m not sure about body only price. That will obviously vary from retailers to retailer. Best bet is to head to somewhere like http://lassoo.com or http://getprice.com and compare.
