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.
