Canon EOS 800D Review
The Canon EOS 800D is a DSLR camera released in early 2017 as an improvement to its predecessor, the EOS 750D. It is slightly smaller and lighter than the 750D model and has better noise reduction, better colour accuracy and processing speed.
The Canon EOS 800D has a 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor with Canon’s Dual Pixel Auto-focus sensor. The 49-point auto-focus make it easier to focus the object and improves the ability of the camera to capture moving objects. It also allows the camera to intelligently discern the main object of the picture and focus on it. The DSLR camera uses a Digic 7 processor that is Canon claims to be 14x faster than the Digic 6 in the previous models. This enables the 800D to take photos at a higher 6fps in burst shooting.
The 800D has several modes for both the expert and the beginner. Auto mode and the new guided mode are quite handy for the beginner and feature a horde of automatic functions. Several quick setting buttons allow the easy changing of settings like the ISO speed, white balance and auto-focus mode. The Canon 800D has a 3 inch rotating LCD display that allows taking of pictures at a wide range of angles. The display is also touch-sensitive and can be used to navigate through the camera. A four-way pad beside the screen can also be used for this purpose.
A wireless connection button opens a configuration screen that allows the user to connect via NFC, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth to their phone. The connection can be used for remote shooting and wireless transfer.
Video shooting in the EOS 800D is quite impressive too. The camera is able to shoot Full HD videos using the Dual Pixel Auto-focus. The auto-focus also allows the user to select the object to be the focus using the touch screen and can dedicatedly keep the focus on it, even in relatively low light.
Being a DSLR camera, the 800D disappoints in its inability to record 4K videos and videos of higher resolution than the predominant 1080p.
