Canon recently announced the launch of the EOS 800D, the newest DSLR designed for beginners looking for superior quality images and the convenience of mobility.
Designed with simplicity as a focus, the EOS 800D boasts a host of advanced functions such as the cutting-edge Dual Pixel CMOS AF (DAF), a first for an entry-level DSLR model, a 24.2-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, and the latest DIGIC 7 image processor propels the EOS 800D to produce brilliant pictures and videos. The lightning fast AF speed will empower users to capture dynamic scenes and fast moving subjects.
Weighing at approximately 485 grams (body only), the EOS 800D is a great option for photographers who enjoy the portability and convenience which comes with a lighter camera, while the touchscreen interface makes it easy for budding photographers to navigate the functionalities of the camera.
“True to our commitment to provide quality imaging equipment that suit the needs of all kinds of photographers, we are proud to bring EOS 800D among other new models to the market,” said Benny Yu, Canon Marketing Philippines, Inc. Consumer Group Head. “The new EOS 800D is the perfect compact sized camera that challenges the stereotype that DSLRs are clunky. It also boasts of simple user interface that makes it effortless for beginners to hone their photography skills in no time.”
AF technology accentuates creativity
Dual Pixel CMOS AF is an intelligent system that constantly tracks moving subjects, ensuring subjects to always be in focus. With DAF, users can now easily capture videos and images (taken during Live View) that are free from out-of-focus subjects.
Intuitive touchscreen UI and features
Designed with an intuitive touchscreen interface, users will find it easy to navigate and adjust the camera settings. A new Guided mode, complete with shooting tips, thorough explanations and graphics, will help beginners familiarize themselves with the camera and enhance their understanding of the different shooting modes. More experienced DSLR users have the flexibility of switching off the simplified user interface.
Exceptional movie shooting capabilities
With DAF and Movie digital IS technology, the EOS 800D empowers users to deliver beautiful expressions in Full HD resolution at a smooth 60fps. The EOS 800D is one of the first DSLR in Canon’s EOS line-up to be equipped with Movie digital IS. The function uses an internal gyro sensor to electronically compensate for camera shakes, even when using a lens that lack its own image stabilization mechanism.
Connectivity for convenience
With Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity, users can transfer images and videos from the camera to the smart devices and upload them onto the Canon Image Gateway, social media platforms and cloud storage. And by using the Canon Camera Connect app, users have real-time control of camera settings such as shutter speed, focus selection and self-timer remotely.
