28th February 2018

Sydney, Australia, 26 February 2018 – Canon Australia today announces the EOS 1500D and EOS 3000D, Canon’s latest entry-level DSLR cameras. With a wide range of practical and easy-to-use features, these new cameras cater to the storytelling needs of those taking their first steps into interchangeable lens photography.

The newest additions to Canon’s entry-level DSLR range, the EOS 1500D and EOS 3000D have been designed for people who seek out new experiences and want to share their adventures seamlessly to social media. The cameras’ powerful combination of APS-C sensor technology, DIGIC 4+ image processor, Wi-Fi connectivity and straightforward in-camera feature guides enable stories to be captured and shared with highly detailed photos and Full HD movies.

With the EOS 1500D featuring a new 24.1 Megapixel APS-C sensor, and the EOS 3000D using an 18 Megapixel APS-C sensor, each camera allows for compelling storytelling with superb control over depth of field for beautifully blurred image backgrounds. Shooting rich, atmospheric photos during night-time adventures is also made possible with both models capable of low-light shooting up to ISO 6400, expandable to ISO 12800.

The DIGIC 4+ image processor, used in both models, powers Canon’s Scene Intelligent Auto mode, enabling simple point and shoot photography with superb image results, as it automatically optimises every shot. The fast and responsive DIGIC 4+ image processor enables the Full HD video capabilities in both models, breathing cinematic life into captured memories.

Both cameras are Wi-Fi enabled for seamless smartphone connectivity via the Canon Camera Connect app (iOS and Android), enabling adventurers to rapidly shoot and share their content on social media whilst on the move.

These processes are made even easier for the EOS 1500D with the inclusion of Near Field Communication (NFC), which can establish a Wi-Fi connection to a smartphone by simply tapping the device on the camera (available on compatible Android devices).  

Both models include simple in-camera feature guides, perfect for those looking to improve their storytelling potential as they upgrade from a smartphone. Both cameras include six image settings outside of basic auto modes and a variety of creative filters, enabling experimentation with manual control and the artistic freedom to tell dynamic and vibrant stories.
