Canon EOS 1300D Review


The Canon EOS 1300D (otherwise known as the Digital Rebel T6 in North America) updates the EOS 1200D / Rebel T5 as Canon’s entry-level DSLR marketed squarely at first-time DSLR buyers. The new camera is more evolution than revolution though, as it carries over many of its predecessor’s key features. Consequently the 1300D gets the same 18MP APS-C sensor paired with a near-identical Digic 4+ processor, resulting in a modest 3fps continuous shooting rate and a maximum standard sensitivity of ISO 6400.

Full HD video at 30fps is available, as is a Video Snapshot mode that combines short video clips into a montage sequence. The 1300D also sports a higher resolution 920k-dot LCD screen, but its biggest improvement over the 1200D is the addition of built-in Wi-Fi with NFC pairing. Now you’ll be able to wirelessly transfer images to a mobile device for sharing, as well as remotely control the camera from a smartphone or tablet.

The Canon EOS 1300D is now available body-only for £299.99/$450, or bundled with Canon’s 18-55mm III (non-stabilised) kit lens for £344.99/$517, as well as the more versatile 18-55mm IS II lens for £384.99/$549.
