Canon EOS 600D (Rebel T3i?) shows at agency pre-event

Canon EOS 600D tested at Korean agency

Canon's annual upgrade to its Rebel DSLRs may be getting close as Korea's Radio Research Agency has a listing for a new model. The EOS 600D, more likely to be called the Rebel T3i in North America, was quietly passed through testing last week. It didn't provide details of what features the camera would bring.

Very little information has emerged in other areas. The T3i may be a relatively conservative update and could primarily add a swiveling LCD borrowed from the EOS 60D. Canon isn't expected to go past the current 18 megapixels or significantly increase the continuous shooting speed past 3.7FPS, so any functional changes may relate to autofocusing, low-light sensitivity and software extras.

The timing of the agency approval likely isn't coincidental and has come just two weeks before the CP+ camera expo in Yokohama on February 9. Japanese camera makers often use the show for introductions, and Canon has often preferred updating the Rebel early in the year. [via Canon Rumors, site currently down]
