New Delhi, India, February 10 2015: Canon has launched two new DSLRs EOS 760D and EOS 750D, equipped with advanced features catered to amateur photographers looking to improve and refine their photography skills.Canon is also expanding the PowerShot and IXUS range in addition to introducing the most compact lens in the EF-M range, the pancake EF-M22mm f/2 STM, in silver.
Canon EOS 760D and EOS 750D
The 24.2 megapixel EOS 760D is a premium entry-level camera for photography hobbyists who enjoy self-expression through images and take a serious interest in exploring greater depth in digital photography. The EOS 750D, also shares a 24.2 megapixel CMOS sensor, and is specifically designed for casual photographers who prize excellent image quality and a simple, user-friendly interface.
Pushing boundaries of quality with a 24.2 megapixel CMOS sensor
Raising the bar for photographers venturing into the realm of DSLRs, the EOS 760D and EOS 750D are the first cameras to offer the highest pixel count of 24.2 megapixels in the Canon EOS entry lineup. Paired with the latest Canon DIGIC 6 image processor, users of these DSLRs will be able to produce images with excellent quality and vibrant colours.The ISO speed of these two cameras ranges from 100 to 12,800 (expandable to 25,600) and the broad spectrum of speed settings allows for greater versatility in shooting scenarios.
Optimal light exposure with EOS Scene Analysis and a new 19-point AF system
In addressing the needs of entry-level photographers, Canon has upgraded the EOS scene analysis system. Sensitivity and accuracy have been enhanced for Automatic Exposure (AE), with features such as skin tone detection for determining human subjects. The EOS 760D and EOS 750D operate on a new 19-point all cross type system. With an increased number of detection points, subjects will always be kept in sharp focus, even when they are moving about within the frame.
Maintain precise focus in Live View
The new Hybrid CMOS AF III systemenables the camera toswiftly and easily focus during Live View shooting.The AF area covers approximately 80% of the screen (vertically and horizontally), so that unpredictable and moving subjects such as children or pets can still be detected and focused on the screen even when they are off-center of the frame. To further enhance continuous shooting performance during Live View, the EOS 760D offers Servo Burst shooting mode, which helps keep a subject firmly in focus while shooting at a speed of up to 3fps.
Outstanding image quality in Full HD video
The Hybrid CMOS AF III systemremains active in video recording mode,helping keep subjects in constant and sharp focus. Digital zoom, a feature usually only available in still photography, is enabled while capturing video on the EOS 760D. This feature extends the range of the lens from approximately 3x to 10x, allowing photographers to capture subjects from a distance.
Designed for the connected world
To cater to the needs of avid social media users where content sharing is paramount, the EOS 760D and EOS 750D are both equipped with Wi-Fi and NFC function, which allows for fast wireless connections to networks, smart devices and printers. The new CameraConnect app allows users to control the EOS 760D and EOS 750D remotely and upload content onto social media via their smart devices with a one-stop, fuss-free solution.
Optional accessories for a customized experience
The EOS 760D and EOS 750D are supported by a range of optional accessories to enhance their functionality. A new and optional battery grip, BG-E18, significantly extends shooting time with its prolonged battery life, while also allowing users to accomplish vertical shooting with greater ease.
Key differences between EOS 760D and EOS 750D
A key difference between the EOS 760D and EOS 750D lies in the interface. The EOS 760D is the first entry-level EOS camera to incorporate a top LCD panel in addition to the main display. Similar to higher-end DSLR cameras, operating the menus and settings in the EOS 760D is achieved through a Quick Control Dial and Main Electronic Dial. Conversely, the EOS 750D features a navigation button control scheme, which is significantly more familiar to users who frequently use entry-level cameras.
