Canon EOS 800D (15)

The Canon EOS 800D is Canon's update to the 750D. The camera features a new 24mp APS-C CMOS sensor, ISO25600, 6fps continuous shooting, Full HD, 60fps video recording, with built-in Wi-Fi, NFC, and Bluetooth. The 750D will remain on the market.

Canon EF S 18 55mm F4 5 6 IS STM (4)

Introduced with the 77D and 800D is a new Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens, that is an ultra compact kit lens, that Canon say is the World's smallest non-retractable kit lens. The lens offers up to 4-stops of Image Stabilisation (IS), with improved optics, and a size that is just 61.8mm long. When used with the new lens, the camera is said to offer the World's fastest focus for APS-C ILC cameras at 0.03s (when using the viewfinder). The new lens will also be available on its own, as well as part of a kit.

A new bluetooth remote, BR-E1, has been announced, offering an AF and separate shutter button, letting you remotely control the 77D or 800D. The remote is not currently compatible with any other Canon cameras, and has a 5m+ range.

Hi, Canon user for many years.
Why do Canon persist with the APS-C sensors? surley a FF sensor is now the way to go, I just wonder what people would say if offered a new APS-C sensor or an older sensor in the new body that offers the advantage of FF.
Yes I no APS-C sensors are cheaper to make but anyone no the difference in cost between the APS-C and the FF sensor in manufacture?

Strange question. They make a range of FF and APSC cameras. Who benefits if they stop APSC?

You do know that every manufacturer sells way more crop sensor DSLRs than FF cameras don't you. Just because you seem not to need/want the benefits of a crop sensor camera doesn't mean that FF is for everyone. And the sales numbers seem to back this up. "Surley" a good job there is choice eh! Wink
