In part III of this guide, we’ll be looking at the best performing primes and zooms covering wide-angle and telephoto focal lengths for the Canon EOS 70D. Read onto find out which lenses are the best performers for when paired with the new “Dual Pixel CMOS AF’ sensor in Canon’s intriguing mid-range APS-C DSLR.
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.
The EOS M5 is the latest addition to Canon’s expanding range of mirrorless models, and is the most enthusiast-oriented to date. It features a 24MP APS-C-format CMOS sensor with Dual Pixel AF across 80% of the frame, first seen on the EOS 70D. Enabling focus tracking during movie capture as well as improved subject acquisition in stills during Live View, this sensor-based phase detection technology is being rolled out across Canon’s lineup, including in the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV.
Announced worldwide in November 2016, with an intriguingly belated announcement in the US at CES in January, the mid-level D5600 is the latest addition to the range. While the new model features a similar DX-format 24-MP CMOS sensor and 3.2-inch fully-articulated LCD in a relatively compact body to that of its predecessor, it adds the company’s SnapBridge technologies —both Bluetooth and WiFi with NFC for image transfer, some touchscreen LCD enhancements, and a built-in time-lapse movie recording option.
With an all-new 24.2Mpix APS CMOS sensor, a 45-point all cross-type viewfinder for stills, and a Dual Pixel CMOS AF system for live view or when recording video, the Canon EOS 80D is the latest model in the maker’s double-digit series. Read on to find out how well the sensor in the Canon EOS 80D performs.
Aimed at enthusiasts, Canon’s latest iteration of the mirrorless M-series contains the new 24.2-Mpix APS-CMOS sensor and Hybrid CMOS AF III 49-point AF system found on the EOS 760D (Rebel T6s) and 750D (T6i). There’s also an articulated touchscreen LCD and built-in Wi-Fi with NFC, but it’s still not officially available in North America. Read on to find out how well this new model’s sensor performs.
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.
Announced alongside the slightly more accessibly-priced EOS 750D (Rebel T6i in the US), the 760D shares many of its sibling’s features, including a new 24.2-Mpix CMOS sensor, hybrid AF system, improved metering and built Wi-Fi, yet has improved controls aimed at enthusiasts. Read on to find out how well this new model’s sensor performs.
Besides being the first Nikon to feature a touchscreen LCD, the mid-range DX format Nikon D5500 is a mostly unremarkable update to the D3300, but as with that model, the performance of the 24-Mpix CMOS sensor really stands out. Read on to find out how well it performs.
Designed specifically for use on smaller APS-C sensor DSLRs, the new EF-S 24mm is a wide-angle pancake prime featuring Canon’s STM step autofocus motor for smooth video capture. At just $149, it looks like a “no-brainer” for Canon APS-C video shooters, but how does it compare optically against a vast range of other options available? We dissect the DxOMark Lens Metric Scores to find out.
Canon has expanded its lineup of entry-level DSLRs, adding two new higher-resolution models to its range. The Canon EOS 750D and EOS 760D are both built around a new 24.2Mp APS-C sensor and offer the same set of features in slightly different shells, with one camera body designed with the more experienced photographer in mind. Let's take a closer look at how the two models differ.
Canon has introduced an accessibly priced stabilized ultra wide-angle zoom complete with a stepper motor that should appeal to stills photographers and budding movie-makers alike. Read on to see how well this new model performs.
