Canon EOS 700D and 100D, shrinking the DSLR down

Share

canon-100d-700d-top.jpgCanon have revealed two new DSLR models, the EOS 700D and 100D. Though larger than the average CSC camera, both see Canon shrinking down the DSLR size a tad in order to combat the threat of the growing CSC market.

The EOS 700D acts as a mid-level replacement for the EOS 650D, while the EOS 100D is a brand new entry level model, popping DSLR smarts into a package that’s particularly small for a DSLR model. Both however are still a fair sight bigger than last year’s EOS M.

Both make use of an 18MP, with the EOS 700D offering a 5fps burst mode, a wide 9-point cross-type AF system and adjustable Clear View II LCD touchscreen.

The EOS 100D packs in an APS-C sensor with optical viewfinder, measuring just 116.8 x 90.7 x 69.4mm and weighing 407g, still squeezing in a 3-inch touchscreen on the rear.

The EOS 700D will be available from late April, costing £619.99. That bags you the body only, while £749.99 gets you the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens too. The EOS 100D is out in late April too and is a little cheaper at £569.99 for the body or £699.99 with the 18-55mm STM lens.
