Introduction | Canon EOS 100D sensor performance | Canon EOS 100D versus competition | Conclusion

Canon EOS 100D vs. Canon EOS 700D

As mentioned before the Canon EOS 100D has a similar sensor to the EOS 700D and several others in the firm’s range. For all that it performs similarly. As well as achieving the same Color Depth and DR score.

Canon EOS 100D vs. Sony SLT-A37 vs. Nikon D3200

When compared with rival entry-level DSLRs, the tiny EOS 100D looks like it’s well behind, especially in DR where it’s -1.9 stops behind the Nikon D3200 and -1.3 stops behind the Sony SLT-A37. A similar story can be said for Color Depth, where the Canon is -1.4 stops behind the Nikon and 1 stop behind the Sony at base ISO, though in fairness, in good lighting and with careful exposure none of this will be really noticeable. Also bear in mind, with higher ISOs, the differences between them become less noticeable anyway.

Canon EOS 100D vs. Canon EOS M vs. Panasonic G5

In comparison with the firm’s mirrorless body, the 18-Mpix EOS M, we can see the Canon EOS 100D performs identically for intents and purposes, while even matching the similarly priced yet more pixel dense 16-Mpix MFT format Panasonic Lumix DMC G5.
