Canon releases EOS 750D and 760D DSLRs

Canon has introduced two middle class DSLR cameras that are technically almost identical – the EOD 750D and the EOS 760D. Both are working with a CMOS sensor (recording in APS-C format and Digic Image Processor 6) with an effective resolution of 24.2 megapixels.

The ISO can be adjusted from 100 to 25,600 which will be interessting to see results of, as those two new models are using the Digic Image Processor 6. What also was unchanged besides ISO from previous models is the camera speed; both models can capture images with up to 5 frames per second. For efficient AF tracking, there is a new hybrid CMOS AF III, which will also offer soft focus transitions. But that presupposes stepper motor lenses, which are characterized by an STM shortcuts. The focus is intended to be very quiet and not be sudden.

More autofocus cross-type sensors

Both cameras now use 19 AF-cross-type sensors, in the previous model only nine such sensors were used. Especially in sports photography Canon promises sharp captures. Introduced with the EOS 7D Mark II method for flicker detection promises more flexibility and evenly exposed images under fluorescent light. Videos can be recorded at a maximum resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels at 24, 25 or 30 frames per second along with stereo sound, inter alia in MP4 format.

Both cameras have a 3-inch (7.62 cm) touchscreen with 1.04 million pixels. The display can be rotated, which is nice for shooting from unusual angles (oh how I wish the Canon EOS 6D had such a display!). Both cameras now support Wi-Fi and NFC to get data from the camera more convenient and pass it on to others.

More settings on the EOS 760D

In contrast to the EOS 750D, the EOS 760D also has a LCD screen on top of the housing and a Quick Control Dial on the shell side. This way the camera is to be served faster and more convenient according to Canon.

The EOS 750D camera body measures 131.9 x 100.7 x 77.8 mm, the EOS 760D is slightly larger in height with 100.9 mm. Also in weight, there are small differences, the EOS 750D with battery and memory card weighs 555 grams, while the 760D weighs 565 grams.
