Smallest, lightest DSLR ever made

Canon is introducing the EOS 100D, an addition to its entry-level consumer digital single-lens reflex camera line-up.

The EOS 100D is the smallest and lightest APS-C DSLR in its class. Measuring just 116.8 x 90.7 x 69.4mm and weighing only 407g, the lightweight and compact body also features a bright optical viewfinder. The camera features a large 7.7cm (3-inch) ClearView II Capacitive Touch screen – making it easy to adjust settings and instantly review shots after capture.

At the heart of the EOS 100D is a new 18 MP APS-C Hybrid CMOS AF II Sensor. This combines with the power of the DIGIC 5 image processor to deliver excellent results in virtually any situation. The new sensor uses phase detection pixels spread across 80 per cent of the sensor’s imaging surface to provide increased AF speed and tracking performance when the camera is in live view mode or when capturing Full-HD movies. 

The camera is capable of shooting at speeds of up to 4fps. It offers a range of simple controls and a helpful in-camera feature guide.

The EOS 100D will be available from late April 2013 with a suggested retail price of £579.99 / €739.99 (body only) or £709.99 / €909.99 (with the new EF-S 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 IS STM lens).

If you pre-order or purchase the EOS 100D between 21 March and 30 April 2013 you will recieve a Canon 300EG Gadget Bag free of charge. See www.canon.co.uk/bagpromotion (this promotion webpage will be live from 22 March 2013).

Full details and specification for the EOS 100D are on the EOS magazine website.
