The EOS 550D features Canon’s unique 
EF-S lens mount, giving you access to all 
Canon EF and compact EF-S model lenses. 
With EF-S focal lengths all the way down to 
10mm, you can capture entire landscapes  
in a single frame, or the full atmosphere 
of an interior scene. Alternatively, attach 
an EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS and fill your 
frame with distant subjects in crystal-clear, 
image-stabilized detail.
All EF-S lenses offer compact, lightweight 
designs and performance to meet the 
demands of the EOS 550D’s high-resolution 
sensor – from special coatings which avoid 
‘ghosting’ and lens flare, to special materials 
which reduce chromatic aberration – the 
colour distortion sometimes seen at the 
edges of shots. 
The EOS 550D guards images against the effects of dust on the sensor in three ways: 
reducing dust generated inside the camera, shaking dust from the sensor each time the 
camera is turned on or off, and mapping stubborn dust spots for removal with the provided 
Digital Photo Professional software. 
In a scene with strongly contrasting tones, 
many metering systems cannot be trusted 
to deliver an accurate exposure. iFCL is a 
new metering system developed as part of 
Canon’s higher-end EOS models, that uses 
63 separate zones to analyse focus, colour 
and luminance information – ensuring that 
the camera understands the scene as well 
as you do.
