A NEW EOS JOINS THE FRAY

Canon An­nounces New EOS 1300D

HWM (Malaysia) - - APERTURE - NEWS -

There’s a new en­try-level DSLR from Canon and it’s called the EOS 1300D. Equipped to meet the de­mands of be­gin­ners, the EOS 1300D has an 18MP APS-C sen­sor, an ISO range that’s ex­pand­able to 12,800, and of course Wi-Fi and NFC ca­pa­bil­i­ties.

To max­i­mize func­tion­al­ity, the EOS 1300D can also be re­motely con­trolled, thanks to the Canon Cam­era Con­nect app, which is avail­able for free on both the iOS App Store and Google Play. Once linked to a de­vice with the Cam­era Con­nect app, you will be able to con­trol the shut­ter speed, aper­ture, and ISO of the cam­era re­motely. This makes it in­cred­i­bly easy to get long-ex­po­sure shots, and even group shots.

There’s also a va­ri­ety of cre­ative fil­ters that can be ap­plied in-cam­era, in­clud­ing Soft Fo­cus, Grainy Black and White, Toy Cam­era, Fish-Eye, and Minia­ture. The in­ten­sity of some of these fil­ters can be cus­tom­ized, al­low­ing you to ex­press your cre­ativ­ity in an ef­fec­tive man­ner.

Other fea­tures in­clude a 3-inch 920k dot LCD mon­i­tor that helps you to com­pose in Live View mode, as well as an aut­o­fo­cus­ing (AF) sys­tem with nine points. While on the sub­ject of the AF sys­tem, Canon equipped the EOS 1300D with an AI Servo AF sys­tem, which can track and keep mov­ing sub­jects in fo­cus.

Sadly, there’s no 4K video record­ing, but that doesn’t mean this cam­era can’t record good qual­ity videos. It is able to record up to Full HD 30p qual­ity, which is great for most oc­ca­sions. As of the time of writ­ing, lo­cal pric­ing and avail­abil­ity is yet to be con­firmed.

The EOS 1300D is the lat­est en­try-level DSLR from the Ja­panese cam­era man­u­fac­turer.
