Canon has revealed two new additions to its entry-level DLSR line-up in India: the Canon EOS 1500D (called Rebel T7 in the US), and the Canon EOS 3000D. The former replaces the two-year-old Canon EOS 1300D with a bigger 24.1-megapixel sensor, and the latter is a new 18-megapixel addition, one that makes the EOS camera line-up even more affordable.
Other specifications include Canon’s DIGIC 4+ image processor, full-HD (1920×1080) 30fps video shooting, 9-point phase-detection autofocus, 3fps burst shooting speed, and 100-6400 ISO range (expandable up to 128,000). The EOS 1500D has a 3-inch LCD screen, while the EOS 3000D sports a 2.7-inch screen.
The Canon EOS 1500D with EF-S 18-55mm IS II kit lens will cost $550 (Rs. 35,600) in the US, and will be available in April. Canon India told Gadgets 360 that pricing and availability for both new entry-level DSLRs will be revealed closer to when they go on sale, towards the end of March.
