The Canon EOS 800D is the perfect camera to get you started in either DSLR photography or video. The 800D camera is equipped with several features including a swivelling 3-inch Vari-angle Touch Screen, and a helping guide mode, all to make operation as enjoyable and informative as possible.
Image quality is fantastic thanks to a high-end 24.2 megapixel APS-C sensor, the same sensor as found in the higher end 80D and 77D. The sensor is capable of making the most of available light thanks to a very generous light sensitivity range starting from ISO 100, to all the way up to an extended light sensitivity of ISO 51200.
Sharing your memories is easy thanks to built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC. Simply pair a device and select the media you wish to share.
Easy to use and informative – Smart Auto & Guided Interface
No matter if you want to shoot full auto or experiment in manual modes, the Canon 800D camera makes it easy for you. In Smart Auto mode, the camera will automatically choose the exposure settings based on the subject that you are shooting, simply frame your shot and take the picture, the camera will do all the heavy thinking.
24.2MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
The Canon 800D incorporates a high-tech 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor capable of capturing even the finest of details. The sensor is capable of capturing crystal clear images with accurate colours and low levels of noise. The large megapixel count also enables ample cropping.
DIGIC 7 image processor
The EOS 800D incorporates Canon’s latest DIGIC 7 image processor. The processor actively reduces noise, corrects colours and lens anomalies, and provides enough processing power to the body to shoot Full HD at 50p or continuous shooting at up 6fps.
The sensor and DIGIC 7 processor provides the 800D with an excellent standard light sensitivity range of ISO 100-25600 and an extended ISO of 51200. The wide ISO range and fast Canon lenses available will enable users to confidently shoot flash and or tripod free in almost any lighting condition.
Full HD 1080p Video Recording at 50 FPS
The Canon EOS 800D can record Full HD video internally at up to 50 frames per second in a high-quality high bitrate mp4 format, or in MOV format with AlI-I compression at up to 30 fps. Videographers can also capture professional quality sound thanks to a microphone input.
45-Point All Cross-Type autofocus
The camera features a new high-performance, flexible 45-point all cross-type AF system. When used with a compatible lens, each focus point is a f/5.6 cross-type, which ensures the camera can lock on to both horizontal and vertical detail quickly and precisely. The technology delivers accurate, fast autofocus and tracking over a wide area and across a range of subjects. Designed to shoot in a range of lighting conditions, with a variety of lens and extender combinations, the AF system is sensitive down to -3EV (moonlight ). It contains 27 f/8 compatible AF points (9 f/8 cross-type) and one extra sensitive f/2.8 and f/5.6 dual cross-type point in the centre.
Dual Pixel CMOS Autofocus
The 800D features Dual Pixel CMOS AF that is enhanced thanks to the improved sensor performance and revised AF algorithms in the camera. When shooting or recording in live view, the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system integrates two separate photodiodes within each pixel to provide a dense array of phase-detect points across the image sensor for fast and accurate focus. Dual Pixel CMOS AF is now also possible with all EF and EF-S lenses and can be used in combination with continuous shooting during Live View.
5-axis electronic video image stabilisation
5-axis Movie Electronic IS helps to minimise video shake and blur in the horizontal, vertical, and rotational planes, even when recording Full HD videos. This effectively reduces most unwanted high-frequency movements that would have spoiled your video.
