Canon EOS 100D is world’s smallest DSLR

The Canon EOS 100D is the world’s smallest APS-C DSLR, the company has claimed, blurring the lines between compact cameras and DSLRs.

Launched alongside the larger Canon 700D, the compact 100D is designed to appeal to those tempted to move up the photography ladder by the increasingly advanced features found in compact cameras, but who don’t want to be burdened with a bulky body.

Canon is touting the camera – at 116 x 90 x 69mm and 407g – as being “perfect for those looking to explore the world of DSLR photography for the first time”.

The 100D is driven by a DIGIC 5 image processor capturing pictures through an 18-megapixel, APS-C hybrid CMOS AF II sensor.

Canon said the camera can capture images at four frames per second and displays them on a 3in touchscreen.

Further up the range, Canon says the 700D is its most advanced consumer offering yet, pitching it as ideal for amateur photographers wanting to improve their skills.

The 700D includes a native 100-12800 ISO range and auto-focus with nine cross-type points spread across the frame – once again powered by the DIGIC 5 processor, and capturing the image via an 18-megapixel hybrid CMOS AF sensor.

The higher spec is reflected in the price, however. The 100D is expected to cost £570 inc VAT and the 700D £620 inc VAT when released in April. Both prices exclude the cost of lenses.
