The successor to the EOS 60D, it features a new Dual Pixel CMOS focus that can autofocus as much as five times faster than the previous generation of EOS snappers, as well as packing in a 20.2-megapixel APS-C sensor, an improvement on the previous 18-megapixel sensor in the EOS 60D.
Elsewhere, the camera is housing Canon's latest DIGIC 5+ image processing engine, a 19-point AF system and a top ISO level of 12800, alongside built in Wi-Fi for remote control of the camera and instant sharing of snaps.
An impressive burst shooting mode captures 7 frames a second to a maximum of 65 jpeg or 16 raw images per use, while full HD 1080p video can be captured at 25, 30 or 24fps. 720p video capture supports 60 and 50fps.
Featuring a 3-inch adjustable angle touchscreen LCD screen, the camera ships with either the EF-S 18-55 IS STM or the EF-S 18-135 IS STM lens.
Hitting stores in August, it'll set you back £1,079.99 for the body only, and from £1,199.99 for the various kit lens packs.
