Like its predecessor, the EOS 700D will suit buyers who want a high-resolution DSLR camera that can record both still pictures and Full HD video clips. As an entry-level model, it has a straightforward user interface plus easy-to-use automated shooting modes and user-adjustable controls.
The vari-angle monitor will attract more serious photographers who are interested in live view shooting with the camera held above the head, at waist level or at an angle to the body. This feature will allow some interesting shooting positions to be adopted and the well-implemented touch-screen makes it easy to adjust many functions, focus and trigger the shutter with the touch of a fingertip.
Being able to accept accessories like a battery grip makes it a possible second camera for a more sophisticated system and allows it to be used for trips to places where mains power is not available (or irregular). A wide range of additional accessories is available for this camera, enabling it to be customised to suit many different types of photography and users’ requirements.
