Canon unveiled two new first-class additions to its entry-level consumer DSLR line-up – the EOS 700D and EOS 100D. Complemented by the introduction of a new standard zoom lens, the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM, both new models offer outstanding 18 Megapixel (MP) resolution with simple touch screen operation, making it easy to capture and relive every moment in stunning detail, whatever your skill level.
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 smallest and lightest APS-C DSLR ever made , the EOS 100D offers a range of simple controls and a helpful in-camera feature guide, perfect for those looking to explore the world of DSLR photography for the first time.
The new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STMis the ideal standard zoom lens for both new EOS cameras, combining Canon’s leading Optical Image Stabilizer and Stepping Motor (STM) technologies to deliver minimal image blur and smooth, near-silent focus in movies.
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 100D is the smallest and lightest APS-C DSLR in its class making it compact enough to take everywhere so you can capture adventures in stunning quality. Measuring just 116.8 x 90.7 x 69.4mm and weighing only 407g, the incredibly lightweight and compact body also features a bright Optical Viewfinder – giving users the full, responsive experience of a DSLR in a compact form. The EOS 100D also features a large 7.7cm (3.0”) ClearView II Capacitive Touch screen – making it easy to adjust settings and instantly review shots after capture.
At the EOS 100D’s heart is a new 18 MP APS-C Hybrid CMOS AF II Sensor, which combines with the power of the DIGIC 5 image processor to deliver stunning results in virtually any situation. The new sensor uses phase detection pixels spread across 80 per cent of the sensor’s imaging surface to provide increased AF speed and tracking performance when the camera is in live view or when capturing Full-HD movies. Capable of shooting at speeds of up to 4fps, the EOS 100D makes it easy for beginners to capture a range of high quality images, be it of special moments with family and friends or fast-paced action on holiday.
