Superb camera and service!

Ordered this on Thursday night and got in on Saturday morning. Outstanding service from Flipkart and at a great price!
This camera is really a steal at this price, given that its sensor is the same as that of its replacement, the 600d which will retail for Rs. 10k more (as a matter of fact it has the same sensor as the far more expensive eos 7d). In well lit conditions it takes superb images in auto mode, but what makes an slr truly enjoyable is the ability to play with aperture and shutter speed settings in manual mode. The interface is really easy to use and well explained in the manual, and had me up and shooting in no time.
Awesome Cam, Good Service, Courteous and Responsive Staff.

My entry into the DSLR world and i chose the 550D. after about a week, i am one happy and proud owner. It was either a 550D or a Nikon D5100 for me. Both are good and both have their pros and cons. I chose the 550D.
I was told i would get the Cam on the 4th, but received it on the 5th. But that was within their 3 days delivery time :). So no complaints. I was very eager (and anxious) to get my hands on this beauty. And therefore kept calling the Support, who btw were very courteous. Provided the right information and not once did they mislead me.
The cam and the other freebies were packed very well.
Overall, a great experience with flipkart and i'll definitely be back for more. Would also highly recommend flipkart. Safe and Fast, with good EMI options.
Just Amazing piece of camera

i oredered for this camera after extensive research on the net and of course some freinds from the feild of photography. i must say, it was worth every bit of effort put in. A masterstroke camera and definately worth the money, anybody who has this passion of photography and wants to graduate from the point to shoot to the DSLR should make the entry with this piece...enjoin every bit of it. As far as the service of Flipkart goes..i m impressed with their packing, update on the order track and the way the whole transaction was handled. i had orderd for cash on delivery and let me admit nobody sends stuff worth 38k just like tht. Thank u flipkart, it was worth it:)

I like this camera ( little amateur but in budget, got it in 2 days but due defects in the cmos had to get it replaced.
CMOS has some err 80 beware ... that's a dead end.
the replaced camera works fine. could have just bought body and saved on another 5k-6k 18-55 is useless its the lowest a canon can get :P although it has IS
... camera is pretty poor at higher ISO... works just fine at lower ones..actually amazing...
17.9 MP is just a showoff...
video mode has auto ISO which will annoy you if you are a fan of picture clarity.
there are lot other things to like .... like its continous shooting mode, self cleaning, 3.7-FPS, awesome battery power can work wonders if you've got a good lens-kit.
over all a good purchase for amateurs if NIKON 5100 is not around.

After doing my research on pricing, I figured out that Flipkart is cheapest (across online and offline). Placed my order on Tuesday evening and got it delivered on Thursday afternoon. Ten on ten for the following:
2. Timely delivery
I wanted to place an order for 600D, but figured out that it is just 550D swivel LCD for another 10.5k. I did not want to pay so much just for an additional LCD feature. So I ordered 550D. Flipkart rocks!

The camera needs no review! Its tried,tested and recommended by experts in the field. Am just an amateur photographer and so far my experience with this camera has been wonderful.
Flipkart goofed up on the delivery. But having had wonderful service from them before, I wouldn't really rate them down. The free bag isn't upto the mark. And the tripod is really sturdy.
Would this be available with 50 mm lens?

Would this be available with 50 mm lens instead of the ipod and the tripod?

After spending about a month to decide which camera to buy finally got stuck with nikon 3100 and canon 550d. Lots of confusion, finally joined to decide the canon family, not any particular reason for that[probably ability to use the external mike slot made me to purchase this! ofcourse that option has nothing to do with photography]. As usual flipkart delivered neatly packed camera and its accessories and they delivered it in just 2 days! the camera is good, good grip, amazing photos even at higher ISO range.[some reviews about canon 550d say that it is not good at higher ISO, but at present i have not found any fault in higher ISO range]. I still dont know whether this is better camera or nikon 3100! I have decided not to worry about much, the battle between the canon and nikon goes on between their users but in the end one has to remember that THERE ARE MILLIONS OF CANON USERS AND MILLIONS OF NIKON USERS, BOTH OF THEM HAVE GOT THEIR OWN PROS AND CONS. so whichever be the camera of these two companies it will be worth for the cost.
