Canon 1300d release date
The Canon 1300d camera coming soon. The camera will have a 18 megapixel CMOS sensor, the ISO sensitity can be adjusted between 100-6400 (12,800 in extended mode), can record HD video at 30 frames per second, and has a 920k dots 3″ sized LCD monitor. The camera has 9 af points out of which one is cross-type.
The camera can record 3 frames per second in burst mode.
The camera has Wifi and NFC.
The initial price of the camera is 400 EUR (body only, 460 (18-55 DC) or 520 Eur (18-55 is II) with 18-55mm lens).
Compare to the predecessor the difference is not huge, the LCD has better resolution, the camera has Wifi and NFC which allows us to upload images or videos or control the camera from an Android smartphone.
How the new Canon 1300d will be look like? The new 20.2 pix sensor from the Canon 70D or the old 18 Mpix unit? What will be considered as an entry level camera in 2015? Seems Canon kept this entry line parallel with the smaller sized Canon 100D. The difference between this cameras are approximately 100-150g and 5-10% of size. The smaller Canon 100d is perhaps only better with a pancake lens attached, like the 40mm f/2.8 stm. To have more Canon pancake lens would be beneficial. Now Canon also has the 24mm f/2.8 pancake as well, for profiting the small size. The 24mm is more useful on the crop camera.
Canon 1300d release date
No information about the new Canon 1300d release date yet.
Seems the new Canon 1200d coming with the 18Mp sensor, with 460k dots LCD. Finally the entry level camera gets the 18Mp sensor. It was not even sure that this camera comes out, meanwhile the Canon 100d was released and was no announcement about the new Canon 1200D.
Sensor size:22.3*14.9mm (Aps-C) No changes expected here
HD video ( 1920 x 1080 / 30 fps ) 4K video is not really likely. 60 fps frame rate would be nice to have
Sensor format: Aps -C No changes expected here
Live view: yes
As an entry level camera will be some cutback in functions or performance, but at this time the specification is not yet known. This is a good sign that the new Canon 1200d got a better LCD and a 18Mp sensor unit.
Canon 1300D Price
No information about the Canon 1300D price yet, but it will be cheaper than the “bigger” models.
Canon 1300d functions
The big question does the new camera will get the dual pixel AF technology which first occured in the Canon 70d? Everybody agrees it will soon appear in all Canon dsrl cameras, but currently only available in the Canon 70d.
