There are more su­perb en­try-level Canon EOS DSLR cam­eras cater­ing to be­gin­ners than ever, in the slinky shapes of the Canon EOS 1300D, 200D, 750D/760D and 800D. More up-mar­ket en­thu­si­ast mod­els range from the lat­est 77D to the ven­er­a­ble 80D and the power-packed 7D Mk II to the highly ad­vanced full­frame 6D Mk II. Then there are the pro­fes­sional-level 5D Mk IV and 5DS/R mod­els that of­fer more ad­vanced pro fea­tures and a big­ger megapixel count on their full-frame sen­sors.

While Canon is some­thing of a leg­end for keep­ing things as sim­ple as pos­si­ble, any DSLR can be a daunt­ing prospect for new­com­ers. We’re here to give you a help­ing hand. On the fol­low­ing pages we’ll cover the ba­sics, from set­ting up your new cam­era kit, to mak­ing the most of sim­ple shoot­ing modes be­fore pro­gress­ing to more ad­vanced cam­era tech­niques. Sure enough, there’s a lot to learn but the great thing is that you can start sim­ple and get great re­sults in next to no time, while also learn­ing new tricks and tech­niques along the way. Ul­ti­mately, it should be a re­ward­ing, highly en­joy­able, and long-last­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Month by month, we’ll be there with you, ev­ery step of the way. Let’s make 2018 a year to re­mem­ber.
