Canon unleash trio of new cameras
Exciting new kit announced
Canon have recently surprised the industry with the arrival of not one, but three new camera models. Two of these, the EOS 4000D and EOS 2000D are DSLR cameras, while the EOS M50 adds to Canon’s mirrorless line-up.

Canon describe the design and function of these new siblings as catering “to the storytelling needs of individuals taking their first steps into interchangeable lens photography and those wanting to create superbly detailed DSLR quality pictures and cinematic Full HD movies with ease.” As is the tradition with Canon entry-level DSLRs, the latest arrivals feature an impressive specification. Both are similar in the space they fill in the market, but feature key differences. The resolution of the EOS 2000D stands at 24.1MP while the EOS 4000D’s pixel count is slightly lower at 18MP.
Aside from the sensor, the EOS 4000D features a moderately smaller rear LCD screen of 2.7 inches, compared to the 3 inches found on the 2000D. The screen resolution of 920k dots is identical however. Both models have wifi connectivity built in, as is becoming the standard for new DSLRs, but the EOS 2000D also possesses NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, to allow easy and quick connection to a smartphone.
The 2000D and 4000D are currently listed as £369.99/€429.99 and £329.99/€379.99 body only respectively.
Canon EOS M50
Pitched as their most advanced mirrorless camera to date, Canon’s EOS M50 features a 24.1MP APS-C sized CMOS sensor, 10 frames per second continuous shooting and 4K video recording. This technology makes use of the new generation Digic 8 image processing engine, which also permits a high ISO sensitivity of 25,600. This is the first camera to incorporate the Digic 8. While it features an EF-M lens mount, the camera’s flexibility can be widened by using the dedicated Mount Adapter EF-EOS M, which allows the use of EF and EF-S lenses.
The EOS M50 is available from March 2018 priced initially £539.99/€629.99 body only or £649.99/€759.99 when bundled with the EF-M 15-45mm lens.
