I just bought 600D with Tamron lens 18-200mm & I cannot get good focus on most of the photos I take. What am I not getting right?

Canon Eos 600D Kit I Ef S18 55 Is Ii videos quality, image quality are awesome. From the entry of Canon digital cameras in the market, their quality has kept improving. This has been become possible just because of the frequent entries of affordable and improved digital cameras in market. The Canon cameras has easiness of affordability.

i'm a novice (in terms of using a dslr) but have been an ardent photography lover. have been looking for every minute details abt dslrs, their usages, terminologies, working etc for a long time. recently have reached at a point where i've filtered two, canon 600d & canon 1100d. i'll be using it for all kinds of photography, i.e. portrait, landscape, macro, sports, wildlife etc. given these two buying options, which one shld i go with? 1) Canon EOS 600D (with Kit I EF-S18-55mm IS II Lens), & 2) Canon EOS 1100D with Double Lens Kit (EF-S 18-55mm IS II + EF-S 55-250mm IS II))

The only real difference between the two cameras is that the 600D has a vari-angle LCD. It depends if you want to spend a little extra and get the vari-angle LCD. Personally I would get the 600D :)

You can get up to 60fps on the 600D

The price seems to be outdated, and over the current price by 25%. ($650).

what is your concern btw? if you looking for image quality, Nikon D5100 sensor have higher sensor rating compare to 600D according to DxOMark in the category of Landscape.

Am looking at upgrading my camera, I have a canon eos400 I bought when they first came out and its great... altho I'm finding it to be lacking when photographing wildlife as the critters tend to come out suring the evening... we are going on a trip around Oz next year and I plan on doing alot of photography.. mainly wildlife/scenery... I do love birds in flight too.. I've been looking at the nikon d510 and the canon eos600d... I'm not a prfessional.. just love wildlife etc... could you advise me on the best camera for my needs.. I am getting soooooo confused
