Canon EOS 750D Review – Canon’s latest DSLR for beginners packs an impressive feature set into an easy-to-use body design.
Launched alongside the EOS 760D, the Canon EOS 750D brings the majority of that camera’s specifications down to a slightly more attractive price point by sacrificing a handful of enthusiast-oriented niceties, such as its top-plate LCD and rear control dial.
It’s a significant upgrade over the previous EOS 700D, with a 24.2MP APS-C sensor, 19-point all-cross-type AF system, and Wi-Fi and NFC technologies joining the touchsensitive and fully articulated 3in LCD.
Thanks to the latest Hybrid CMOS AF III system, focusing in live view is exemplary – something that’s helped by the ability to key the point of focus through the touchscreen. Focusing more conventionally reveals a similarly fast and silent performance, in part thanks to the STM technology inside the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM kit lens.
While the camera can’t quite match the dynamic range offered by some of its peers, images at lower sensitivities display excellent control over noise and even settings as high as ISO 6,400 are usable with a little careful post-production of raw files. Resolution is as expected for a 24MP camera with an anti-aliasing filter, and therefore fractionally lower than some rival cameras.
Those wanting a little more manual control will likely prefer the similar EOS 760D, but for beginners needing a camera that’s simple to operate the EOS 750D is recommended.
