Global DSLR manufacturer Canon has revealed two new additions to its entry-level DSLR line-up in India: the Canon EOS 1500D (called Rebel T7 in the US), and the Canon EOS 3000D. They have new features like Canon EOS 1300D with a bigger 24.1-megapixel sensor, and the latter is a new 18-megapixel addition, one that makes the EOS camera line-up even more affordable.
Both of these cameras will have “Scene Intelligent Auto” mode that makes it easier to take Instagram-ready pictures, creative filters in addition to the standard shooting modes. Talking about connectivity they have Wi-Fi for easy sharing (plus NFC on the 1500D), and a feature guide for beginners.
These cameras will come inbuilt effects such as soft focus, toy camera, fish-eye, miniature, and an “artsy grainy” black-and-white.
Here, you’ll have to take note that you’ll need the Canon Camera Connect app, available for both Android and iOS, to transfer photos and videos to your smartphone. The app also provides remote shooting capability, with the special features you can adjust camera settings so you can take selfies and group tripod shots with ease.

They have DIGIC 4+ image processor, full-HD (1920×1080) 30fps video shooting, 9-point phase-detection autofocus, 3fps burst shooting speed, and 100-6400 ISO range (expandable up to 128,000). The EOS 1500D has a 3-inch LCD screen, while the EOS 3000D sports a 2.7-inch screen.
