A NEW EOS JOINS THE FRAY
Canon Announces New EOS 1300D
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.
