Canon EOS 100D and EOS 700D

Canon, a world leader in imaging and camera technology, has proven themselves in innovation with the world’s smallest and lightest DSLR – the Canon EOS 100D.

Canon EOS 100D

The EOS 100D is a ultra-portable and lightweight camera packed with great features and performances in its compact form. Weighing just 370 grams, the lightweight EOS 100D features an APS-C sensor, 18 megapixel CMOS sensor and a high speed Digic 5 image processor, delivering high image quality and high speed continuous shooting at 4 frames per second.

The EOS 100D is small, light and powerful, measuring 116.8 (w) x 90.7 (h) x 69.4 (d) mm, along with a new touch screen, it is able to capture images with minimum noise and image blur, even in low light conditions. Additionally, the EOS 100D features a maximum ISO speed of 12800 (expandable to ISO 25600) and employs a 9-point Auto Focus (AF) system that ensures subjects remain in focus even if they move off the centre of the image area.

When in Live View mode or movie recording, the newly developed Hybrid CMOS AF II AF system combines high-precision contrast AF and high-speed phase-detection AF, the latter made possible by the camera’s CMOS sensor, enabling high-performance AF across approximately 80% of the image-display area. In Live View mode, Continuous AF ensures rapid focusing at all times, which keeps moving subjects in focus prior to snapping the shutter.

During movie recording, the Movie Servo AF also allows continuous AF tracking of moving subjects. When paired with the new EF-S18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM EF-S lens, the EOS 100D delivers smooth and quiet Movie Servo AF performance, attributed to the stepping motor of the lens.

The camera is also equipped with a new Effect Shot function in Creative Auto mode which allows creative users who like to play around with filters to keep a copy of the original photo. So for example, should a user select the monochrome filter for his photos, the camera will produce the black and white photos while automatically retaining the original set of photos in full color for further editing purposes. In Playback mode, the EOS100D has a cropping function which allows photos to be cropped into four aspect ratio sizes, including the popular 4:3 size. Once again, a copy of the original file will be retained even after the photo has been cropped.

With the new EOS 100D comes three new family-oriented scene modes – Kids, Food and Candlelight, which when added to the previous modes such as HDR Backlight Control, Night Portrait and Handheld Night Scene, bring the total number of special-scene shooting modes to six. These modes help to ensure the optimal settings for every situation. Canon has also created a new Background Blur Simulation function in Creative Auto mode to help users achieve an attractive bokeh in their photos. In this mode, the Live View display will simulate the background blur in real-time before the photo is taken. A simple slider interface allows users to adjust the depth-of-field to the desired blur level easily.

Canon also introduced the EOS 700D, an APS-C size 18.0-megapixel CMOS sensor and high-speed DIGIC 5 imaging processor. The EOS 700D delivers high image quality and high-speed continuous shooting of five fps and a maximum ISO speed of 12,800 (expandable to 25,600).

The EOS 700D employs a 9-point, all cross-type AF system that makes possible excellent focusing results regardless of image composition or subject pattern. Furthermore, the f2.8 cross-type central point delivers even greater focus precision when shooting with a lens with a maximum aperture of f/2.8 or faster. When capturing photos or videos in Live View, the camera’s Hybrid CMOS AF combines phase-detection AF and contrast-detection AF to deliver high-speed focusing performance.

EOS 700D

Similar to the EOS 100D, the Movie Servo AF tracks and focuses on moving subjects continuously for a smooth and high-quality output during movie recording. When paired with the new EF-S18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM EF-S lens, the stepping motor in the lens allows the camera to achieve especially quiet and even AF operation.

The EOS 700D offers a selection of seven Creative Filters and also allows users to preview and apply these filters during Live View mode on the camera’s vari-angle clear view LCD touch screen before snapping a photo. The new Background Blur Simulation function in Creative Auto mode helps users achieve an attractive bokeh in their photos. In this mode, the Live View display will simulate the background blur in real-time before the photo is taken. A simple slider interface allows users to adjust the depth-of-field to the desired blur level easily.
