Canon has launched two new DSLRs EOS 760D and EOS 750D, equipped with features catered to amateur photographers. Canon is also expanding the PowerShot and IXUS range in addition to introducing the most compact lens in the EF-M range, the pancake EF-M22mm f/2 STM, in silver.
Canon EOS 760D and EOS 750D
Both entry-level cameras, EOS 760D and EOS 750D feature a 24.2 megapixel CMOS sensor, paired with the latest Canon DIGIC 6 image processor. The ISO speed of these two cameras ranges from 100 to 12,800 (expandable to 25,600). The EOS 760D and EOS 750D operate on a new 19-point all cross type system. Both cameras are both equipped with Wi-Fi and NFC function. The new CameraConnect app allows users to control the EOS 760D and EOS 750D remotely and upload content onto social media via their smart devices.

Similar to higher-end DSLR cameras, operating the menus and settings in the EOS 760D is achieved through a Quick Control Dial and Main Electronic Dial. Conversely, the EOS 750D features a navigation button control scheme.
