Canon EOS 850D aims to prove why DSLR is still very much alive and kicking


Canon has announced the latest in its consumer range of DSLR cameras, the Canon 850D.

Sporting a 24.1-megapixel Dual Pixel CMOS APS-C sensor and Canon‘s proprietary DIGIC 8 image processing, the 850D is capable of 4K video recording in up to 25 frames-per-second, while 1080p recording can be done in 60fps.

The camera has a 7fps continuous still shooting rate, 45-point cross-type autofocus system and has 5-axis image stabilisation built-in. The AF also has eye-tracking, for more accurate snaps of people.

It has an ISO range of 100 – 25,600, which can be extended to 51,200.

Connectivity is provided through 2.4GHz Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, with iOS and Android transfer possible through the Canon Camera Connect mobile app. This then enables images to be uploaded to cloud or social media platforms.

As a DSLR, it comes with an optical viewfinder, while a vari-angle 3-inch touchscreen LCD monitor can be found on the rear.

There is a built-in flash too.

The Canon EOS 850D will be available from April, priced at £819.99 / €989.99 for the body only.

It is also known as the Canon EOS Rebel T8i in the States.
