Further readings for the Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
To provide photographers with a broader perspective about mobiles, lenses and cameras, here are links to articles, reviews, and analyses of photographic equipment produced by DxOMark, renown websites, magazines or blogs.
In the first part of our comprehensive lens recommendations for the new entry-level Canon EOS Rebel T5 / 1200D, we’ve assessed a raft of primes from both the maker and third parties to see how well they perform on the camera. As well as highlighting the best performers we’ve also taken a closer look at the best on a budget.
Kit lenses aren’t the most exciting models in a maker’s line-up but, with its i-Function feature, this is one of the more interesting and better made of its type. But, how well does it perform optically? Read on to find out.
Introduced in July this year, the EOS 70D at first sight seems like a regular update to the maker’s mid-range EOS 60D model. It shares a number of features with the firm’s existing SLR range including a 19-point cross-type phase detection AF system, a 3-inch (1.040M dot) articulated touchscreen and built-in WiFi connectivity with remote viewing and image transfer. The camera can also shoot at up to 7fps and has 1080/30p video recording with stereo sound using an optional external microphone.
Canon’s new EOS 70D model features a new CMOS sensor that uses twin photodiodes at each pixel location that allows AF during video capture, but how does that affect stills output? Read on to find out how well the new sensor performs in our labs.
After comparing the imaging chain of the full-frame Canon EOS 5D Mk III across a raft of lenses, we’ve now turned our attention to the APS-C format EOS 700D / REBEL T5i / Kiss X7i. The 18.1-Mpix ‘Hybrid CMOS’ sensor in this camera is similar to those of the same size and pixel count used in the firm’s other models, including the semi-pro EOS 7D, so it may still be of interest even if you don’t own a EOS 700D / REBEL T5i / Kiss X7i.
