The replacement for the Canon EOS 1200D has been announced and the new entry-level EOS is rather budget-friendly at under £300 (body only). 

The new EOS 1300D features the same 18Mp sensor found in the EOS 1200D and a DIGIC 4+ processor which updates the DIGIC 4 processor found in the previous model. The screen's been upgraded from 460K dots to 920K dots and you'll also find Wi-Fi and Dynamic NFC built-in.

Scene Intelligent Mode puts the camera in control of choosing settings and a new Food mode is built-in for those who are fans of capturing foodie themed shots. As you'd expect, a range of creative filters are available and action shots can be captured at 3fps. For those who want a little more control over settings a semi-automatic mode as well as full manual controls are available. 

The ISO range sits between 100 and 6400 - which is expandable to ISO12800 and FULL HD video can be captured. The camera offers the same manual control in movie mode as in stills and when capturing video, you can use Video Snapshot mode to record a series of short clips, which can be automatically joined together in a video sequence.

  • EOS 1300D body only – £289.99

From Canon UK:

Canon today unveils a new entry-level EOS DSLR – the EOS 1300D. An ideal introduction to DSLR photography, the EOS 1300D includes Wi-Fi and Dynamic NFC to make sharing simpler than ever, alongside a range of improved features to help you take impressive, creative photos and movies. With an 18 megapixel sensor and responsive handling, the EOS 1300D is the perfect camera for capturing images with a distinct look and feel that are immediately shareable.


Capture quality in every shot

For photographs that stand out from the crowd, the EOS 1300D includes Canon’s DIGIC 4+ processor and a large APS-C sized, 18-megapixel sensor, letting you capture intricate detail and the diversity of colour in every scene. If you want to shoot scenes where people and items pop from blurred background, the EOS 1300D’s shallow depth of field capabilities deliver just that. From close-up nature shots, portraits and full cityscapes, the camera helps you create original photographs you’ll want to share, wherever you find yourself. With more than 80 EF lenses and a range of other accessories to choose from, the EOS 1300D is a versatile DSLR that delivers the results you want today and flexibility for the future.

Learn, grow and take control

DSLR photography can be daunting for beginners, but with the EOS 1300D even first-timers can take stunning quality photos straight out of the box. Scene Intelligent Mode puts the camera in full control and chooses the right setting for you – or with a twist of the mode dial you can opt for a shooting mode designed for specific subjects, such as the new Food mode. Responsive Auto Focus through the viewfinder ensures even moving subjects remain in focus, helping you shoot action scenes at three frames per second. For fun, unique creations you can also apply a series of Creative filters, such as Toy camera and Fish-eye.

As your photography skills progress you can take advantage of semi-automatic or full manual control modes. With the ability to choose your own creative settings, from aperture, shutter speed and ISO between 100 and 6,400 – which is expandable to ISO 12,800, the camera gives you the freedom to learn and shoot your favourite moments even as the light fades.

For professional-looking footage, you can capture every detail in Full HD quality, thanks to the large sensor, and shoot with a shallow depth of field to add a cinematic flare to your home and holiday movies. The camera offers the same manual control in movie mode as in stills. Using Video Snapshot mode you can also record a series of short clips, which can be automatically joined together in a slick video sequence that shows a summary of your day.

The EOS 1300D includes NFC and a host of new Wi-Fi connectivity features to help you store and share your photos on the go. Using NFC you can simply tap to connect to compatible Android smart devices and transfer your photos, or shoot remotely using Canon’s Camera Connect App. Ensuring all of your precious memories are stored safely is a must – with built-in Wi-Fi you can upload directly from your camera to a range of cloud services, including irista from Canon, and create online galleries ready for sharing with loved ones. You can also connect the EOS 1300D to a Canon Connect Station CS100 for simple photo storage and sharing options.
