Despite the new Canon EOS 100D being significantly more compact than the Canon EOS 700D, it shares a lot of the same specifications as the Canon EOS 700D, therefore we thought it would be worthwhile to show the differences between these two new 18 megapixel Digital SLRs.

Canon EOS 100D Vs 700D - On top there are the same buttons, but with different mode dials, and the 700D features stereo microphones above the flash hot-shoe.
Canon EOS 100D Vs 700D - On the rear there is a similar layout of buttons and controls between each camera, however the smaller 100D does not have the same direct access to WB/AF/Drive/Picture control on the 4-way controller. Instead the 100D puts these options in the menus. Both cameras feature a Q button to give quicker access on the rear screen.
Canon Eos 100d Vs 700d side ports and buttons give the same sockets and buttons as each other.
The 700D features a side memory compartment, to give easy access to the SD memory card, while the 100D keeps the memory card in the battery compartment underneath the camera. As the 100D is considerably smaller than the 700D, the grip on the 100D extends further with the rubberised texture surrounding the shutter release.
Canon EOS 100D Vs 700D menus.
The Q button gives quick access to the most commonly set options without the need to go into the menus. Additional photos of the camera menus side by side can be seen below, or alternatively for more detail on each camera, simply follow the links below:
