Following the official announcement of the new EOS 550D digital SLR, Canon has released what it calls a "walkthrough" video of the new snapper.

It's more an advert if we're honest, but if you are excited about the new HD DSLR then it's certainly worth a watch for footage of the gadget in the flesh, including some lingering shots showing the LCD and interface.

"Stills or movies, capture your story" seems the be Canon's tagline for the 550D which is capable of capturing Full HD video - at various FPSes.
