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