Alongside the EOS M50 mirrorless camera, Canon also launched their new entry-level DSLRs in the Philippines. The two offer decent features that might appeal the pros but doesn’t overwhelm the amateurs.
Both the Canon EOS 3000D and 1500D were made official a couple of days ago. These cameras prove that Canon isn’t planning on fully switching to the mirrorless realm yet, and it will still produce products that they are well-known for.
The Canon EOS 3000D has an 18-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 4+ image processor. It can shoot Full HD videos and comes with both WiFi and NFC for easy file transfer to mobile devices.
It is also equipped with a 2.7-inch non-touchscreen LCD and is compatible with all EF and EF-S lenses. The camera also has a built-in guide that briefs you what each camera mode does.
On the other hand, the Canon EOS 1500D has the same traits as the 3000D. But this time, it uses a denser 24.1-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor. It also has a slightly larger LCD screen at 3-inches.
EOS 1500D shoots 1080p videos, comes with WiFi and NFC wireless connectivity, and it is still compatible with the same range of lenses.
Canon hasn’t revealed the official pricing and availability yet. However, both cameras are already available for pre-order in Canon’s Australian website. The EOS 3000D (single lens kit) has a listed price of AUD629 (~Php25,400), while the EOS 1500D (kit lens) is at AUD729 (~Php29,400).
