Canon India today launched the EOS 1300D, an entry-level DSLR camera. This camera is equipped with an 18.0 megapixel CMOS sensor and ISO speed expandable up to 12,800. It is capable of capturing high quality images and Full HD movies and has connectivity features thanks to its built-in WiFi and NFC support features.
The EOS 1300D facilitates seamless image transfer to smart devices through the Canon Camera Connect app (via Wi-Fi), or a simple tap between the camera and the compatible smart device to establish a connection for file transfer (via Near Field Communication, NFC).
Through the Camera Connect app, users will have the flexibility to shoot remotely. Upon connecting the EOS 1300D with a smart device, users can adjust camera settings such as shutter speed, aperture, and ISO speed, and then capture the shot on their smart device. The remote shooting feature also enables wider photographic possibilities such as capturing group images via a tripod or shooting in tight spaces.
The EOS 1300D comes with five creative filters to deliver different creative expressions – soft focus, grainy black and white, toy camera effect, fish-eye effect, and miniature effect.
The EOS 1300D is powered by a DIGIC 4+ dedicated image processor and an 18.0 megapixel APS-C size CMOS sensor (approximately 25 times larger than a standard smartphone). The EOS 1300D renders higher resolution images with lesser noise, even under low-light conditions.
The EOS 1300D comes with a high performance optical viewfinder, which enables faster framing and higher focusing precision, essential factors to capturing fleeting moments. The optical viewfinder also provides a more accurate representation of what the camera sensor sees, for a better idea of the final image. With an enhanced 920,000-dot LCD monitor, users will find it easier to check on the focus during Live View shooting.
The EOS 1300D is equipped with a 9-point Auto-focusing system that allows fast and accurate auto-focusing on the subject. The camera’s AI Servo AF constantly tracks and focuses on moving subjects.
The EOS 1300D provides full access to Canon’s extensive range of EF/EF-S lenses to suit a variety of occasions. Canon’s EF/EF-S lenses range from macro lenses for extreme close-up details, telephoto lenses to shoot long-distance subjects like animals in a zoo, and ultra-wide-angle lenses to capture dramatic landscapes or small enclosed environments. Over 70 lenses in Canon’s EF/EF-S range can be used with the EOS 1300D to achieve the optimum composition.
