Quality is king with Canon’s new DSLRs and lens – the EOS 77D and the EOS 800D

Canon today introduces two new DSLR cameras to the EOS family – the EOS 77D and EOS 800D. Combining leading imaging technologies, including a 24.2-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and DIGIC 7 processor, the EOS 77D offers high-end performance and full control and is ideal if you’re looking to upgrade your kit and refine your skills, while the EOS 800D is great way to start your first DSLR journey. Alongside the cameras, Canon welcomes the EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM – the smallest non-retractable DSLR kit lens of its focal range – as well as the Remote Controller BR-E1, perfect for remote capture with no line of sight up to 5m away.

Quality, detail and speed

With the same sensor technology found in the iconic EOS 80D and Canon’s latest processor – DIGIC 7 – both cameras capture scenes in impressive quality, with richer detail, while being fast enough to ensure a crystal clear image. Boasting the world’s fastest auto focus using Live View mode at an astonishing 0.03 seconds, the cameras deliver pin-sharp precision, and with the ability to shoot at six frames a second fast moving subjects are captured with ease.

For low light shots from sunrise to sunset, the cameras let you shoot up to ISO 25,600 – extendable to 51,200 – and capture every scene without struggle. For some shots, detail is everything, and with 45 cross-type AF points the cameras focus quickly, track moving objects accurately, and capturing razor sharp images. Both cameras also include 7560-pixel RGB+IR metering to detect fine details such as skin tone and offer accurate exposure.

Take a bite out of Hollywood

You can capture an exceptional level of detail and smooth motion in movies as well as stills, catching fast moving subjects in Full HD 60p and HDR Movie Shooting. Whether it’s safari, sport or sunny scenes on the beach, Dual Pixel CMOS AF tracks subjects as they move, focusing smoothly for professional-looking results. For shooting movies on the go 5-axis digital image stabilizer irons out camera movements when shooting hand-held movies.

To help make the camera your own, the EOS 77D is offers full control, with dual control wheels to adjust settings like aperture and shutter speed, and top panel LCD to help you see every setting. For less seasoned photographers, the EOS 800D’s guided interface teaches you how camera settings work as you shoot, transforming your photography and helping you grow in skill.

Shoot, connect, share

NFC and Wi-Fi lets you simply share images and movies to compatible smart devices or a Canon Connect Station before editing and sharing with the world. For a constant connection, Bluetooth® lets you turn on and browse photos without having to take the camera from your bag, or operate it remotely via a smart device or the new Remote Controller BR-E1.

Extend your photography range

The new EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM kit lens is an ideal lens to get started with and complements an all-rounder DSLR with the capability to shoot a wide range of pictures, from landscape to portraits. The smallest1 in its class, the lens is packed with a 4-stop Image Stabilizer for steady low-light or full zoom shots, 7 blade circular aperture for pleasing background blur in portraits. For video scenes Servo AF with near-silent STM is perfect for focusing without distracting noise.
