Our original Canon T5i / Canon EOS 700D announcement story
Along with its Canon EOS 100D announcement, the company has revealed a Canon 650D replacement, giving us an official Canon EOS 700D price, release date and spec sheet.
Promising to be Canon’s most advanced consumer EOS camera to date, the 18-megapixel Canon EOS 700D price tag will be £629.99 / €799.99 body only, or £759.99 / €969.99 in a kit with the new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM standard zoom lens also announced today.
The company also says the Canon EOS 700D release date will be from late April, like the Canon EOS 100D.
Key to the Canon 700D specs list is a Canon-designed and manufactured 18-megapixel APS-C Hybrid CMOS sensor, as well as the DIGIC 5 image processor, which is also found in the EOS 100D.
The Canon 650D replacement offers up to 5fps shooting, along with a native ISO range from 100-12,800, which can extended to ISO 25,600.
The Canon EOS 700D AF System features 9 cross-type points spread across the frame, and photographers have the option to manually select and adjust focus points or use full automatic mode.
The Canon 700D also incorporates a 3in Vari-angle Clear View LCD II Touch screen allowing photographers to shoot from a variety of angles, along with a simplified 360-degree rotating mode dial.
Like the EOS 100D, the Canon 700D offers a range of Creative Filters and scene modes, as well as a Scene Intelligent Auto mode that automatically detects the scene being shot and selects the best camera settings to use.
The new Canon camera also incorporates the same HD video options found in the Canon EOS 100D, such as Video Snapshot mode for capturing and editing short video clips.
