Canon EOS 4000D
Among the low budget, entry-level DSLR cameras, the Canon EOS 4000D is definitely one of the cheapest. It combines affordability with performance to give you value for your money. The 4000D shares a lot with the other members of the four-digit D series, from its body design its main features. It also borrows heavily from previous Canon technologies, which perhaps explains its low starting price.
The Canon EOS 4000D uses a Digic 4+ image processor that first debuted in 2014 Canon compact camera models. Its 18MP APS-C sensor also comes from an older model, the EOS 7D, that was released in 2011. The camera has a fixed 2.7-inch LCD rear display, similar to one used by a 2011 EOS 1100D model, one of the early members of the four-digit family.
As is common with DSLR cameras, the 4000D has an optical viewfinder and a 9-point auto-focus lens. The lens is capable of 3fps when in continuous shooting, which is quite impressive for the camera.
Even though the EOS 4000D still has a connect button, it only has Wi-Fi capabilities for image transfer and remote capture of the photos. One can connect their smart phones to the camera through its companion app and can then remotely take, receive or share images on social media.
The scene intelligent auto mode provides guided shooting. It also provides creative filters for editing and retouching the picture. The companion app also provides guides and tutorials on using the app.
The 4000D’s lens can be dismounted and has a plastic base. Therefore, one can procure a secondary lens and change the lens depending on their preferences. A built in flash can be ejected by the press of a button and pushed back once it is no longer required. The camera can also record Full HD movies and has an impressive battery life.
The LCD display on the 4000D is poor and quite retrogressive. The plastic mount base is also susceptible to wear and tear if the user constantly changes the lenses. The removal of NFC connectivity is also a glaring set-back on the camera.
