Canon launches EOS 750D and EOS 760D “twins”

It’s the spring season so time for Canon to launch a new mainstream model in the XXXD series, but this time there’s two – Canon has twins.

Of course one twin is slightly better than the other, only the market will tell if the £50 price gap is a barrier too far for potential purchasers to bridge.

Essentially they are the same spec of camera, but the EOS 760D gains the control layout usually reserved for the XXD series of cameras, with top plate LCD and quick control dial on the rear. Check out the top three quarter view of the EOS 760D above and the EOS 750D top and rear views below. Having that extra quick control dial is great, and for me i’d go for the EOS 760D over the EOS 750D.

Stunning quality photography with every shot

Both cameras make it easier than ever to capture your favourite moments in the quality they deserve – with vibrant colour, sharp focus and rich detail – using the powerful new 24.2MP sensor and Canon’s DIGIC 6 image processor. Thanks to the ISO 100-12,800 range the EOS 760D and EOS 750Ddeliver detailed results whatever light you’re shooting in, be it dawn or dusk, or even indoors. In addition, Flicker Detection technology, first found in the EOS 7D Mark II, provides consistently exposed images under artificial light for even greater flexibility.

Enjoy capturing your favourite action moments using the camera’s five frames per second continuous shooting mode, which makes sure that split second action is always caught on camera. The EOS 760D and EOS 750D ensure pin-sharp focus precision, with a powerful 19 cross-type AF point system adapting to any composition, whether it’s shooting fast moving animals on safari, or action packed adventure sports.

Capture your world in movies

Amateur filmmakers can shoot their memories as movies in stunning Full HD resolution and in MP4 format for easy online sharing. You can make sure your subjects are always in focus with advanced Hybrid CMOS AF III providing the ability to track or swap focus, while compatibility with STM lenses provides silent, smooth focusing for supreme accuracy and speed. The EOS 760D also gives budding videographers a host of additional creative movie modes, which makes creating unique footage easy. Shoot atmospheric movies, with detail in both the shadows and highlights with HDR movie mode, or instantly create the effect of professional tilt-shift lenses with Miniature Effect.

Control and creativity at your fingertips

The EOS 760D and EOS 750D’s powerful specifications are packed into expertly engineered compact bodies, with an ergonomic grip and Vari-Angle LCD for easy handling in all situations. Take over the shooting functions with full manual control giving you the freedom to dictate your own creative shooting style. The EOS 760D allows photographers to be more considered with their settings with conveniently placed controls, usually found in Canon’s enthusiast EOS models, including the rear Quick Control Dial, top LCD panel and Intelligent Viewfinder for quick access and review of both settings and images.

As soon as you pick up either camera you can start shooting confidently, with automatic shooting modes ensuring you get the best results every time. Make your pictures stand out from the crowd with a range of easy-to-use, one touch shooting modes and creative filters.
