Canon has unveiled the EOS 700D entry level DSLR, the new camera replaces the Canon EOS 650D
, which is to be discontinued.
The EOS 700D is Canon’s most advanced consumer EOS model to date. Boasting 5fps shooting, a wide 9-point all cross type AF system and Vari-angle Clear View II LCD touch screen, it is the ideal camera for those wanting to develop their photography skills further.
The EOS 700D is powered by a Canon-designed and manufactured 18.0MP APS-C Hybrid CMOS sensor and DIGIC 5 image processor, which deliver outstanding levels of resolution – producing images that are consistently rich in detail and colour. Offering up to 5fps shooting, the EOS 700D is ideal for capturing a range of subjects, from fast paced action to stunning skylines, or beautiful portraits of family and friends. Additionally with a native 100-12,800 ISO range, the EOS 700D is capable of catching remarkable levels of detail even when shooting in tricky low light conditions.
The EOS 700D’s advanced AF System consists of 9 high performance, cross-type points spread across the frame, delivering greater focussing speed and accuracy to ensure photographers can always keep desired subjects in focus, even as they move around. With the option to manually select and adjust focus points, or simply use full automatic mode, the EOS 700D provides aspiring photographers with an easy way to explore different kinds of image composition as their confidence grows.
The EOS 700D features a new, simplified 360° rotating mode dial to provide easy and swift access to the camera’s various shooting modes. A 7.7cm (3.0”) Vari-angle Clear View LCD II Touch screen also makes it easy for users to adjust settings as well as frame, shoot and review from a variety of angles. A new external coating, adopted from Canon’s mid-range EOS models, also provides a more robust and durable finish.
