Canon has unveiled the exciting new Canon EOS 850D – a versatile camera that empowers you to push your photography beyond what your current kit is capable of. This all-purpose DSLR enables you to achieve the quality, creativity and spontaneity that you’ve always aspired to.

Whether you’d love to take family portraits with a bit more punch, or bring out the true beauty of your surroundings in your nature photography, the Canon EOS 850D will unlock the potential of your pictures and become your go-to camera for every shooting situation.

A rear control dial enables you to develop your skills at your own pace. Control your shutter speed with pinpoint precision, to freeze or blur motion. Get those beautiful blurry backgrounds in portraits, by controlling the depth of field. And when you’re ready, unlock your full creative arsenal by adding flash in Manual mode.

For users passionate about learning photography, the Canon EOS 850D provides the features you actually need – rather than an overload of exotic settings you will never use. 

The robust autofocus system boasts 3,975 focal points in Live View, as well as Eye Detection AF with tracking – brilliant for keeping the eyes tack-sharp. Capture dynamic action shots with the 7 frames per second continuous shooting, so that you never miss the winning shot. And enjoy rich, detailed images worthy of printing on the 24.1MP APS-C CMOS sensor – which gives crisp, clean photographs even in low light conditions. 

It’s not just stills, though. The Canon EOS 850D captures FullHD video up to 60 frames per second and stunning 4K at a cinematic 24 or 25 frames – ideal for recording video for your business, or creating content for vlogs or YouTube. And whether you’re shooting video or stills, the vari-angle screen makes getting those awkward low or high angles a breeze.

Once you’ve got your shots, take advantage of the built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi to beam them directly to your phone or tablet for editing and sharing – and even process RAW files with DPP Express for iPad. The Canon EOS 850D also possesses Auto Image Sync, for fuss-free backup of images and stills to your computer.

Best of all, these features are packed into a camera body that’s extremely compact and lightweight – so you can always take it with you, whether you’re intending to shoot, or packing it just in case. And as your photography grows, your camera will grow with you thanks to the EOS lens mount – which enables you to use any of the hundreds of EF and EF-S prime and telephoto lenses.
