Ratings and Reviews
A DSLR you’ll never want to leave behind.
A small and responsive DSLR to take everywhere. The 18-megapixel EOS 100D delivers superb photos and video and features an optical viewfinder and intuitive touch-screen controls.
The EOS 100D is a fully-featured, responsive DSLR that is also small and light enough to take everywhere. The ideal camera to document your lifestyle. Shoot 18-megapixel photos and Full HD movies everywhere you go and enjoy great performance even in poor light: a maximum ISO sensitivity of 12800 (extendable to ISO 25600) allows you to shoot images that are low in noise but full of atmosphere.
Compose your photos using a bright, responsive optical viewfinder or use the 1,040,000-dot 7.7cm (3.0”) 3:2 Clear View II TFT Touch screen to control the camera. Navigate menus, review pictures and even focus and shoot by tapping, swiping and pinching.
Canon’s Scene Intelligent Auto technology analyses the scene and sets the most appropriate cameras settings automatically. And as your photography develops a built-in Feature Guide will teach you how to get the most from the camera.
Shoot high-quality video at resolutions up to Full-HD (1080p). Take control of exposure, focusing, sound and more, or use the Video Snapshot mode to capture edited movie sequences in-camera. Hybrid CMOS AF II provides continuous focusing while shooting, ideal for keeping moving subjects sharp.
Track and shoot fast moving subjects at 4 fps and take advantage of nine AF points to focus swiftly and accurately, even with off-centre subjects.
Express your creative side with one of the EOS 100D’s Creative filters. Extra Effect Shot captures a filtered and unfiltered shot simultaneously. Choose from Grainy Black & White, Toy Camera, Miniature Effect and more, and preview the effect of each filter before you shoot.
Theme-based Scene modes automatically choose the right camera settings for the subject you’re shooting. Choose from Portrait, Landscape, Sports, Kids, Food and more. And when you’re ready, progress to Creative Auto mode for more control over factors like background blur, via an intuitive interface.
Take advantage of the extensive range of lenses, accessories and flashes that make up the EOS System.
