Canon is once again breaking new ground in the world of digital SLR photography with its powerful EOS 550D – a camera which makes outstanding creativity and exceptional versatility easier to achieve than ever before.

Boasting the kind of top end features usually found in semi-professional SLRs within a compact, lightweight and easy-to-handle body, the Canon EOS 550D combines superior imaging technology with full HD movie capture capability.

The EOS 550D packs a huge 18-megapixel sensor for super-fine images which can be enlarged up to poster size without any loss of quality. Canon’s advanced DIGIC 4 processor ensures lightning-fast start-up times, near-instant image review and grain-free photography. Fantastic reproduction of colours and subtle tonal gradations make this ideal for keen amateurs who want the best.

Meanwhile, the already impressive ISO of the EOS 550D is expandable up to 12,800 for the ultimate in dawn-‘til-dusk photography.

Canon’s 9-point auto-focus system with f/2.8 cross-type sensors offers brilliant clarity and accuracy across the frame, ensuring every point of every picture is pin-sharp.

And quick-fire 3.7 frame-per-second shooting enables superb split-second control with great accuracy.

What’s more, the Canon EOS 550D’s iFCL metering system adds an extra dimension previously only seen on more professional models – now it’s put in the hands of the serious amateur, allowing for extra experimentation in tricky conditions.

Knowing what’s in the frame is all important for this level of creative photography, and the EOS 550D’s 3in Clear View LCD screen with 1,040k dot resolution reveals 100% of captured images – with no unwelcome surprises or distortion. The anti-reflective coating means viewing is easy even in bright sunlight and from a range of angles.

And for those keen to bring their imaging armoury bang up to date, full HD movie capability opens up a whole new creative dimension for image lovers – and means a camcorder is no longer an absolute essential for the kitbag.

The Canon EOS 550D has an integrated high definition multi-media interface (HDMI) port, allowing video and images to be easily viewed on any HD-ready television – and even controlled with the TV remote – while content can also be transferred wirelessly thanks to the built-in Eye-Fi functions.

All wrapped up in a rugged, weather-proof stainless steel and polycarbonate resin body, the Canon EOS 550D is ready for anything.

Sounds like a good deal

Older model, but the lenses could make it worthwhile for some.

Good deal, but older model, wish they did the same offer with a 650d for just a bit more

I have voted hot as I own the 550D and think that the package as a whole is good value for anyone new to DSLR photography. A word of warning though: these are all cheap lenses and do not match the quality of the lenses usually bundled with these cameras (typically IS - short for image stabilisation - sporting better optics and build quality but still nowhere near the quality of the top of the range lenses). Anyone planning on doing some serious photography would be best served doing some research first; I can recommend dpreview.com for this as it gives both the beginner and the experienced some excellent independent reviews and advice.

Then with image quality of 8.0 out of 10 it's value for money. If you need stabilisation best use a tripod.

I already said this is value for money; all these lenses are cheap lenses by Canon's standards with the 50mm the best of the bunch as you rightly point out. Not sure you can deduce the price of another deal based on the individual elements of this one as it is clearly a special purchase from Canon by Jessops!! All I can say is that this package IS worth buying if you are new DSLR photography but if you plan to get/are serious you may find yourself replacing the really cheap lenses in this package with better ones in which case go do some research...

Which ones are good in your opinion ?

Not bad at all, thanks OP for sharing

Great deal. The 650 and 600 are the pretty much the same as the 550 anyways minus the touch screen and flip screen respectively. I've got the 550 and its a cracking camera

Im a Nikon guy and even I think its a great starer deal,will give you a few good years of service.
Even if you turn pro, can keep the lenses.

I'd argue that 2 of those 3 lenses don't do the camera justice sadly. Unless the 18-55 Lens is the MkIII (and I can't see any mention of this), or the IS variants, then its IQ isn't really up to scratch with many of the kit lenses you get these days.
Same goes for the 75-300 - this is easily bested by the 55-250mm lens.

I was going to say that this leaves me with questions over whether this is indeed a hot or cold deal. Given that I would strongly advise selling the 18-55 and 75-300 for their more modern equivalents, I'm not sure it makes sense to buy them bundled in the first place.

However, I've just seen that the 550D is going for quite a bit body-only these days still. It's a good starting camera, so perhaps this bundle price isn't so bad after all (though, with the caveats above, the lenses certainly don't *make* the deal here).

The wireless flash control on the more recent models is a nice added bonus too.

Head added.. Good eal

Very good deal. I have the 650d with the 18-55 and the 50mm. There's not a massive difference between the 550 and the 650d and this is a good selection of lenses. My 650 has the touchscreen (barely use it) and you can tilt the screen (sometimes use it) but otherwise v similar. The 550 has slightly better low light performance, too. The 50mm is an absolute corker, I can't get enough of it, especially for low light gig work.
Hot!

The 50mm aka nifty fifty is a no brainer, great lens not just for beginners with f1.8 it is great for learning and playing around with depth of field, something that is more difficult with variable aperture zooms that start at 5.6
If you are picking up your first slr and learning how to get it out of auto mode then this is a great package fore sure. If you then want to take it further you can then sell this kit for not much less than you paid and upgrade. But beware this can hit your wallet hard. Of course canons L lenses are better I own several now and would never look back but when one lens costs in excess of £1700 then of course you know what to expect, they should be called W lenses for 'WOW'. The kit on offer here will be great for outside use, the zooms may struggle in low light although the 50mm may help you here with the extra couple of stops of light. Either way you wont know if you want to take photography further until you dip your toe in the water and this seems like a good place to start..

That will be the focal length 50mm, it was said that any slr owner should have one of these in their bag!

Cracking camera the 550d. All comments about "old model" are pointless. I started off with this camera. So little development between this and the 700d, with SLR's as has been mentioned previously... ITS ALL ABOUT THE LENSES... Almost all canon crop sensors (such as this) produce very similar results. I shoot a 7d now so should know.

The 3 lenses on offer cover the full range of focal lengths realistically required. If anything, even more than required as a beginner. For 500 I don't think you would do any better.
