Canon has released the 550D as an upgrade to 500D. It has inherited some of the features of their high end 7D while offering a cheaper alternative to 7D.
- 18 Megapixel! Will this megapixel race ever end?
- ISO 100-6400 (Expansion to 12800) , similar to 500D
- 1920X1080 Full HD Movie Recording
- SDHX compatible
- External microphone support 3.5mm stereo jack
- Weight 530g
- Fixed LCD
- No in camera RAW conversion
Canon 7D Advantage over 550D
- Faster burst speed 8fps vs 3.5fps (550D)
- Weather proof sealing
- Top LCD
If faster burst speed or weather proofing is not your requirements, 550D would work out better for you.
