Canon unveils the smallest and lightest DSLR ever made, the EOS 100D, alongside the EOS 700D to let your creativity grow

  • EOS 700D
    EOS 100D
    EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM

United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, 21 March 2013 – Canon today unveils two new first-class additions to its entry-level consumer DSLR line-up – the EOS 700D and the smallest and lightest APS-C DSLR ever made[i] the EOS 100D. Complemented by the introduction of a new standard zoom lens, the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM.

The EOS 100D offers a range of simple controls and a helpful in-camera feature guide, perfect for those looking to explore the world of DSLR photography for the first time but without the bulk normally associated with a DSLR. The EOS 700D is Canon’s most advanced consumer EOS model to date. Boasting 5fps shooting, a wide 9-point all cross type AF system and Vari-angle Clear View II LCD touch screen, it is the ideal camera for those wanting to develop their photography skills further. Both new models offer outstanding 18 Megapixel (MP) resolution with simple touch screen operation, making it easy to capture and relive every moment in stunning detail, whatever your skill level

The new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM is the ideal standard zoom lens for both new EOS cameras, combining Canon’s leading Optical Image Stabilizer and Stepping Motor (STM) technologies to deliver minimal image blur and smooth, near-silent focus in movies.

The EOS 100D – a DSLR you’ll never want to leave behind

The EOS 100D is the smallest and lightest APS-C DSLR in its class[ii] making it compact enough to take everywhere so you can capture adventures in stunning quality. Measuring just 116.8 x 90.7 x 69.4mm and weighing only 407g, the incredibly lightweight and compact body also features a bright Optical Viewfinder – giving users the full, responsive experience of a DSLR in a compact form. The EOS 100D also features a large 7.7cm (3.0”) ClearView II Capacitive Touch screen – making it easy to adjust settings and instantly review shots after capture.

At the EOS 100D’s heart is a new 18 MP APS-C Hybrid CMOS AF II Sensor, which combines with the power of the DIGIC 5 image processor to deliver stunning 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 or when capturing Full-HD movies. Capable of shooting at speeds of up to 4fps, the EOS 100D makes it easy for beginners to capture a range of high quality images, be it of special moments with family and friends or fast-paced action on holiday.

The EOS 700D - let your creativity grow

The EOS 700D is powered by a Canon-designed and manufactured 18.0MP APS-C Hybrid CMOS sensor and DIGIC 5 image processor, which deliver outstanding levels of resolution – producing images that are consistently rich in detail and colour. Offering up to 5fps shooting, the EOS 700D is ideal for capturing a range of subjects, from fast paced action to stunning skylines, or beautiful portraits of family and friends. Additionally with a native 100-12,800 ISO range, the EOS 700D is capable of catching remarkable levels of detail even when shooting in tricky low light conditions.

The EOS 700D’s advanced AF System consists of 9 high performance, cross-type points spread across the frame, delivering greater focussing speed and accuracy to ensure photographers can always keep desired subjects in focus, even as they move around. With the option to manually select and adjust focus points, or simply use full automatic mode, the EOS 700D provides aspiring photographers with an easy way to explore different kinds of image composition as their confidence grows.

The EOS 700D features a new, simplified 360° rotating mode dial to provide easy and swift access to the camera’s various shooting modes. A 7.7cm (3.0”) Vari-angle Clear View LCD II Touch screen also makes it easy for users to adjust settings as well as frame, shoot and review from a variety of angles. A new external coating, adopted from Canon’s mid-range EOS models, also provides a more robust and durable finish.

Enhanced creative modes

Both the EOS 700D and EOS 100D feature a range of super easy-to-use shooting modes and creative filters – making it simple for beginners to start with creative pre-sets and then explore their creativity as their confidence grows. Scene Intelligent Auto mode automatically detects the scene being shot and selects best settings so users can simply focus on the image, letting the camera decide the best combination of settings for the scene. Both new models also offer a range of dedicated scene modes, with the
EOS 100D featuring new Kids, Food and Candlelight modes, designed to ensure optimum results with stunning detail in a range of familiar situations.

Canon’s exciting range of Creative Filters, including Fish-eye and Miniature effect, can now be applied before capture thanks to new real-time filter previews – providing the perfect way to pick the most suitable effect for specific moments before you actually take the shot. Photographers can also learn how to adjust their images with enhanced Creative Auto Mode, and using new Extra Effect Shot mode on the EOS 100D, users can even capture two images simultaneously – one with a Creative Filter applied, as well as one standard image.

Explore videography with EOS Movies

Aspiring photographers can add another dimension to capturing their memories, using EOS Movies to shoot their precious moments in glorious Full HD resolution (1920x1080p). Hybrid AF II[iii] always keeps the stars of the movie in focus, with continuous AF constantly tracking subjects during shooting. Additionally, Video Snapshot mode makes it easy to capture and edit short video clips to bring to life an exciting day, such as road trips and weddings.

EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM – A standard STM zoom lens, for everyday photos and video

The new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM is the perfect lens for EOS 700D and EOS 100D users to start their photography adventure. From sweeping landscapes to portraits, the versatile 18-55mm zoom range means users can enjoy the flexibility of getting close to subjects or getting more in the shot. Images are captured with precision detail and clarity thanks to a 4-stop Optical Image Stabilizer, which also lets photographers use lower ISO levels and longer shutter speeds. The full time manual focus ring allows users to make precise focus adjustments, while the near-silent STM technology also ensures noise is kept to a minimum whilst focusing – perfect for when capturing movies.

US Press information

MELVILLE, N.Y., March 21, 2013 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is proud to introduce a new flagship model to its popular EOS Rebel line, the EOS Rebel T5i Digital SLR Camera. The incredible image quality and performance starts with an 18 megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor and Canon's superb DIGIC 5 Image Processor. Combined with an extensive ISO range of 100-12800 (expandable to 25600 in H mode), the EOS Rebel T5i boasts crisp, detailed images, even in low-light conditions. With a continuous shooting speed of up to 5.0 frames per second (fps) united with 9 all cross-type AF focus points, the new EOS Rebel T5i allows photographers the opportunity to shoot with ease, even in challenging shooting situations.

Canon 700DWhen shooting in Live View mode, the Hybrid CMOS AF system enables speedy and accurate autofocus for photos and video. Coupled with Canon's new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens, available in the standard kit lens bundle, the EOS Rebel T5i takes full advantage of the Stepping Motor (STM) technology, which allows the lens to smoothly and silently focus on the subject whether it is moving or standing still. When combined with the camera's high-resolution Vari-angle Touch Screen 3.0-inch Clear View LCD monitor II and intuitive touch controls, the EOS Rebel T5i stands as Canon's most "consumer-friendly" DSLR.

"Built to make advanced photography creative and fun, the EOS Rebel T5i Digital SLR Camera gives users exceptional image quality and fast, intuitive operation along with creative functions to help advance photographic expression," said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies & Communications Group, Canon U.S.A.

Expand Your Creativity with New Advanced Features
The EOS Rebel T5i provides amateur and advanced photographers looking to hone their creative and technical skills with a range of features that allow for crisp, clear images.

Whether it is adding saturation to a vivid landscape or applying a unique, vintage touch to a portrait, users who want to express their creativity can experiment with different effects and settings, composing a shot, by using one of Canon's seven Creative Filters. When the Creative Filters are applied in Live View, users can preview the filter on the vari-angle three inch LCD touch screen without having to shoot the image first. Effects such as ArtBold, Water Painting, Grainy Black and White, Soft Focus, Toy Camera, Fish-Eye and Miniature let users pick and choose how to best express their creative vision before or after the image is captured.

The EOS Rebel T5i features advanced shooting modes to take creative imaging even further. When using one of the advanced shooting modes such as Handheld Night Scene, HDR Backlight Control or Multi-Shot Noise Reduction, multiple images are taken and combined within the camera to help create the best quality image based off of the shots taken. Providing quick and easy accessibility, a new mode dial with Scene modes has been included, allowing users the flexibility to select the subject matter while the camera determines the optimal settings.

Enhanced EOS Full HD Movie Mode

The EOS Rebel T5i offers easy-to-use professional video capture. When users switch to EOS Full HD Movie mode, the EOS Rebel T5i offers the ability to shoot in 1080p Full HD video in a number of recording sizes and frame rates. With Canon's Hybrid CMOS AF System and Movie Servo AF, the camera provides continuous AF for focus tracking of moving subjects by helping to reduce the camera's need to "hunt", resulting in a quick and smooth continuous AF. While shooting with one of Canon's Stepping Motor (STM) lenses, such as the new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens, the camera will only capture the stereo sound of the scene being recorded. For added flexibility, the EOS Rebel T5i also features a built-in stereo microphone with manual audio level adjustment to enhance sound quality.

Expanded Lineup of STM Lenses

Canon is expanding the lineup of STM lenses by adding one new lens, which now gives users three choices that will allow for the capture of stunning images and video with the EOS Rebel T5i - the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM, the EF 40mm f/2.8 STM and the new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens. The EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens offers high magnification in a compact and lightweight EF-S standard zoom lens with an optical image stabilizer for up to four equivalent stops for shake correction. When paired with the Hybrid CMOS AF, it allows for smooth and quiet, continuous AF for photo and video capturing - making it the perfect combination for preserving those once in a lifetime moments.

Availability

The EOS Rebel T5i Digital SLR camera is scheduled to be available in April for an estimated retail price of $749.99 for the body alone; $899.99 bundled with an EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens kit, and $1,099.00 with the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens kit.

The new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens also is also scheduled to be available separately in April at an estimated retail price of $249.99.

Lens specifications

STM technology (EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM)

The new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM features Canon’s Stepping Motor (STM) technology - providing smooth, near-silent auto focus – ideal for shooting movies or quiet situations. The STM used in the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM is a lead screw type, which is quieter and smoother compared to the more compact gear type mechanism.

The STM technology works by using two guide bars that are fixed at both ends of the lens’ moveable lens group. When zooming, the focus lens barrel travels in the direction of the optic axis, along the two guide bars, which help to minimise the load on the lens barrel. The Stepping Motor is connected to rack on the lens barrel through a precision lead screw, which then rotates to create the driving force to move the barrel along the optic axis.

Non-rotating front element (EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM)

The EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM features a new non rotating front element ideal for using filters. The lens has been engineered so that the front element does not rotate when users adjust the focus. As a result, any filters applied to the front of the lens remain in a static position, even when the focus ring is adjusted, therefore removing the need to readjust the filter position during shooting – perfect for use with polarising filters.

2012 December

  • 27th A suggested 'roadmap' (see general rumours page) suggests 3 DSLRs and several lenses for 2013 - product age would suggest both a 7D2 and 70D, whilst the 650D will be a year old by June. Shortages of the 60D and the need to position any 70D well ahead of a new Rebel (aka 700D) would suggest the 70D first.
  • 22nd In Japan, Impress magazine comes up with suggestions that we will see smaller DSLRs next year from Canon.
  • We've also heard nothing suggesting any imminent 700D - Since it's not 6 months old, anything before mid 2013 would be unusual.

September

  • 23rd An updated sensor design for the whole 7 series (7/70/700) is suggested for next year - details on the 3D page.

July

  • 30th The 650D sensor is likely the one in the first EOS M camera
  • This makes for an even bigger pile-up of 18MP cameras, with the 60D and 7D showing their age - see the timelines below

June

  • 8th Canon 650D/T4i launched
  • Will the 650D be an 18 month or 12 month camera?

March

  • 30th Canon UK 'cashback' until 5th June, covering 550D and 600D

2012 February

  • 10th The 650D not announced at the CP+ show

2011 February

  • 7th The 600D is announced pretty much exactly a year after the 550D
