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.
Announced alongside the slightly better-equipped EOS 760D (Rebel T6s in the US), the 750D shares many of its sibling’s features, including a new 24.2-Mpix CMOS sensor and hybrid AF system, but it is aimed at beginners and has a price tag to match. Read on to find out how well this new model’s sensor performs.
Canon was the last maker to introduce a mirrorless camera to the market and after something of a false start with EOS M, the company has released an update with the same Hybrid CMOS II sensor as the company’s Rebel SL1 (100D). Read on to find out how the new, Asia only, EOS M2 performs.
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.
Replacing the 650D the 700D becomes the new flagship DSLR in their ‘EOS for Beginners’ range. Continuing to feature a 18-megapixel APS-C ‘Hybrid CMOS’ sensor, 100 - 25,600 ISO range, 5fps burst shooting and 9-point AF the new model is almost identical however. Costing $1099 it’s up against stiff competition, with rivals such as the Nikon D5200 and Sony Alpha 58 packing more resolution for less money.
Sony seems to have a liking for doing things differently to other makers: hybrid cameras with bigger sensors, compact cameras with serious, professional attitude and single lens reflex cameras with fixed, translucent mirrors. Its new SLT Alpha 58 camera shows just how good a strategy this is, close to the quality of their Alpha 77 at half the price!
As the boom in hybrid mirrorless cameras continues and some have questioned the future of the entry-level DSLRs, can the launch of the smallest and lightest DSLR to date revitalize this market? We preview the key specifications of the new super small Canon 100D (Rebel SL1) and take a look at the new EOS 700D (Rebel T5i) and updated EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM ‘kit’ lens at the same time.
A noise benchmark of 187 digital cameras by Peter van den Hamer
DxOMark Camera Sensor is a raw benchmark for camera bodies by DxO Labs. The benchmark is “raw” because it measures image quality using Raw output files. It is also raw as DxO’s data can be used to cook up camera reviews that cover more aspects than image quality.
Canon was the last major maker to embrace the hybrid or ‘mirrorless’ camera market. As a somewhat sober debut, designed for those who are new to photography, the EOS M adopts an 18-megapixel APS-C format in a compact body but boasts a number of advanced features including a 31-point hybrid AF system for stills and video and a touch sensitive 3-inch LCD. While it’s clear this camera doesn’t compete directly with the firm’s DSLRs, how does it stack up against the competition that don’t have the same volume of DSLR sales to protect?
Committed to retaining its sales lead in numerous countries, Canon views its new EOS 650D as a strategically important product. What improvements can we see with respect to its sensor, which Canon claims is new? How does this latest camera in the EOS line compare with its predecessor, the EOS 600D, and with its rivals, the Nikon D3200 and the Sony SLT-A65? The answers lie in our sensor test results for the 650D.
Canon’s annual update of its amateur APS-C D-SLR and successor in a long line of cameras (EOS 500D, 550D, 600D), the Canon EOS 650D brings with it a few well-thought-out new features. By contrast, there are no surprises in store about the 18Mpix APS-C sensor that it seems to have inherited from the EOS 600D. Some first impressions in our preview.
