Canon EOS 700D – It Just Got Better

You could be forgiven for not being able to recognize the subtle cosmetic differences between Canon’s latest EOS 700D from its predecessor – EOS 650D at first glance. The EOS 700D also inherits Canon’s latest DSLR technology such as the Hybrid CMOS AF System, 18 megapixels CMOS Sensor, 9-point all cross-type AF sensor, a 3-inch Vari-angle Clear View LCD with capacitive sensing touch screen and full HD video recording capability.

But that’s where the similarities end. A big difference with the EOS 700D is the inclusion of Live View mode. With it, users can preview their image with seven different creative filters straight after shooting. This is a particularly useful application for photographers who like to apply the effects of post-processing filters on their photos.

I took the EOS 700D for a walk at Marina Bay on an overcast day. As you can see from the above, the photos were unaffected by the pale lighting. The EF-S 18- 55mm F/3.5-5.6 IS STM kit lens works really well with the EOS 700D, producing sharp images with good contrasts. The lens focuses fast and quietly, behaving like a compact and light baby L-series (Canon’s high performance) lens. This combination of camera and lens is great for new DSLR buyers and photography enthusiast seeking a more powerful camera to shoot with.

I did a little “high speed” experimentation in continuous shooting with AI Servo and I am pleased with the results. I fired a total of nine shots and they all turned out pretty clear.

As Canon’s kit lenses always have a good magnification ratio, I used it to focus on an interesting little pink object off the riverbank that caught my curiosity. From a distance, the zoom-in shot has a nice 50% crop factor from the initial photo taken.

Overall, I am impressed with the camera’s results. The shooting modes are aplenty and the easy operation and usability place it ahead of the competition. The EOS 700D is clearly a worthy performer and contender to the other DSLR cameras offered at the same price range.
