Canon EOS 700D 18-55mm IS STM

Great image and video quality in a good value Canon SLR. Suitable for all levels.

Canon has been firing on all cylinders lately, creating cameras of great quality for beginners and professionals alike. The Canon EOS 700D, in combination with an 18-55mm IS STM detachable lens, is an entry to mid-level Digital SLR that reproduces images of very good quality and offers great value for money for the UK buyer.

An entry-level camera should, above all, get the basics right. The Canon EOS 700D delivers “the basics” in spades, with a performance up there with the very best of its direct rivals. And with functions such as Live View AF, top notch movie making capabilities and crystal clear imagery, this camera stands out from a busy crowd. Capture incredible detail with the 18 Megapixel Hybrid CMOS AF sensor while easily keeping up with rapid movement using the 700D’s 9-point all cross-type autofocus system. Never miss important moments with shot bursts of up to 22 images and capture wonderful images in almost all light conditions with the EOS 700D’s ISO sensitivity range of ISO 100-12800. The HDR backlight control function even allows you to take good pictures at night.

The EOS 700D makes a wonderful 17.9 Megapixel camcorder for those who like to indulge in a bit of home movie-making. Features include shooting in Full HD with a resolution of 1080p, and Hybrid AF technology ensuring continuous focus while recording. You can capture sound with either the built-in microphone or if you prefer to get serious, there’s the option of an external mic. The Vari-Angle Clear View LCD II, with capacitive touch screen capabilities, allows you to record and explore new angles while you can keep an eye on your composition.

With an 18-55mm IS STM lens this camera can capture both close portraits and beautiful landscapes to equally good effect. The lightweight construction makes the lens particularly suitable for everyday use, but it comes into its own when used for recording video, as the effective inbuilt image stabilization greatly reduces wobble and STM-motor technology makes for near-silent focusing - evenly and accurately while shooting. The 18-55mm IS STM has a focus distance of only 0.25 M and it can capture great detail. The non-rotating front element allows for the easy application of physical filters, while the manual focus ring ensures good focus control for whatever your needs. Finally, it must be mentioned that a Super-Sectra coating reduces flare and improves sharpness for perfect pictures.

What’s hot:

  • Great video capture
  • Responsive touchscreen
  • Lightweight

What’s not:

  • Incomplete viewfinder coverage
  • Limited AF points
  • Body feels a little plasticky

Why you should buy it: For those of you that want to get creative and don’t want to wait till you get home, there are several creative filters you can apply; including Art bold, Water painting, Toy camera, and Miniature effects. The Canon EOS 700D is very easy to use, and while not exactly packed with professional levels of control, it does get the most important things right – high image quality, far above average camcorder functionality, and excellent Live View autofocus functions.
