  • - HDMI output only functions when Wi-Fi/NFC is disabled.
    - Auto and Incandescent white balance settings too warm in tungsten lighting.
    - OVF coverage only 95%, with offset (this will likely change with sample variation).
    - Built-in flash can act as master to off-camera slave flash units.
    - Competitive though unexceptional burst speed for its class.
    - Excellent color and hue accuracy with manual white balance.
    - Very good high ISO performance for a 24-megapixel APS-C model.

    - But it’s the 760D’s low noise levels that impress most.
    - The new 24.2MP sensor in the 760D doesn’t just look good on paper; it also generates excellent image quality.
    - Its plastic body is tough and doesn't show any signs of flex, plus you get a generously-sized rubberised rear thumb grip.


  • This camera produces the same superb image quality as the 750D, but its better handling, helpful secondary LCD and electronic level makes it our choice of the two models. It's almost like a smaller, lighter 70D, with a better sensor.


  • Canon's EOS 5DS D-SLR has a high-resolution sensor that filters out color moiré, but it sacrifices a little detail in the process.


  • The Canon EOS 5Ds combines the proven design of the popular 5D Mark III with jaw-dropping image quality from the new 50.6 megapixel sensor. Slow continuous shooting speeds and a limited ISO range by modern standards means that the 5Ds certainly isn't suited to every photographic situation, with the venerable 5D Mark III and the EOS 7D Mk II being better all-rounders, while the huge file sizes and sheer level of detail demand that you use the best post-processing setup and the latest "L-series" lenses to do justice to the camera.

    The Canon EOS 5Ds is a professional dSLR providing and amazing 50.6-Megapixels of resolution, great performance from the dual DIGIC 6 processors and Full 1080p HD video for those looking for more than just still images. .


  • - HDMI output only functions when Wi-Fi/NFC is disabled.
    - OVF coverage only 94%, with offset (this will likely change with sample variation).
    - Auto and Incandescent white balance settings too warm in tungsten lighting.
    - The new sensor packs in a lot of resolution and results in very good image quality.
    - Very good high ISO performance for a 24-megapixel APS-C model.
    - OLPF means fewer aliasing artifacts, but images are a bit soft (could be a Pro or Con depending on perspective).


  • The Canon EOS 750D/Rebel T6i marks the tenth generation in a series that started way back in 2003 with the 300D/Rebel. However, each revision hasn’t always brought significant improvements. Whilst the 700D made waves with its touch-screen interface, its sensor dated back three generations to the 550D/Rebel T2i and was now outperformed in resolution and image quality.
    Thankfully the 750D addresses this and is arguably the most significant generational leap forward since the 550D.


  • This is a great camera that's capable of producing superb quality images which have much more detail than the 700D's. The control layout is also almost identical to the previous camera's, making the upgrade very smooth. The 760D, however, offers slightly better handling and would be our preferred choice.


  • - Maximum aperture is far less impressive, though, ranging from f/2.8 to f/5.6.
    - Wi-Fi and NFC are on-board too, making the usual wireless tasks of remote shutter control and image transfer that bit easier.
    - It gets noisy pretty quick.
    - Up to ISO 800 images are good.

    The Canon PowerShot G3 X certainly has some of the same drawbacks that you find with other fixed lens, large zoom cameras, but its extremely good image quality more than makes up for those issues. Add in a tiltable, high-resolution, touch screen LCD, a 25x optical zoom lens, a good mix of manual control and auto shooting modes, and great battery life, and the G3 X is a really good camera.


  • The new Canon PowerShot G3 X is a solid super-zoom camera for enthusiast photographers, offering a wealth of options for shooting both stills and video, excellent image quality, speedy auto-focusing, intuitive and configurable handling, and solid construction. Unfortunately, it's rather ham-strung by the strange omission of a built-in viewfinder - trying to hold the Canon PowerShot G3 X at arm's length whilst using the full extent of the 25x zoom lens results in too many misses due to camerashake.


  • The Canon EOS 7D Mark II shoots at 10fps, offers pro-level video recording, and is built like a tank. It's our Editors' Choice for high-end APS-C D-SLRs.


  • The Canon EOS 7D Mark II is an excellent DSLR camera, with its APS-C sensor, cutting-edge auto-focusing system, fantastic viewfinder and outright speed making it a great fit for sports and wildlife photographers, especially as it doesn't cost the earth.
    Featuring a near-identical control layout to the 5D Mark III, the EOS 7D Mark II makes the perfect partner to the 5D for the keen Canon shooter looking for an all-round kit.


  • Canon's best APS-C format SLR to date, the 7D Mark II has a new sensor and processing engine along with advanced metering and AF systems, giving it bags of appeal to the enthusiast wedded to the idea of an SLR rather than a compact system camera.
