Quality of Dlsr

I have a Canon 600D, and I can't push the quality in post in youtube when viewed at 360p. People are able push the quality of 720p with the 550d and the quality looks awesome. How do they do it?

Not exactly sure what you're asking. Make sure you are shooting and editing your video at 1080p. For best cinematic quality shoot at 24fps and keep your shutter at 1/50 (since it's the closest you can get to 180degree), this combined with proper exposure and lighting will create much higher quality. Then make sure you are exporting high quality 1080 or 720 from your editing platform and upload that!

Good Luck

Yeah your question doesn't make much sense... could you link to an example of what you are doing and what you want instead?

By the way, as you have a 600D make sure you check out Magic Lantern! Almost essential to use with that camera :-)

When the videos are viewed at youtube at 360p, the quality is still outstanding and sharp:

This is mines at 600d:

Could it be the export settings? Preset?

It all depends on the shot, some are better than others in both the videos. This does have to do with the export and compression settings. I am not great with compression, Phillip Bloom just posted a 45minute video about compression and setting and the differences, take a look and that may help you out, www.phillipbloom.net I think it is.

Some of this is probably shooting very carefully to make sure your footage has the correct color and exposure while you are shooting, because trying to correct this with your video editor will destroy the visual quality of your video.

You also might look into the free Magic Lantern hack for Canon cameras that adds a bunch of very useful new features to your camera, that will help you achieve better results.
