Here we are with Canon camera review which is EOS Rebel T100 also known as the EOS 4000D outside US, and this is the Canon’s latest stripped-back entry-level DSLR,
or while the naming convention may suggest otherwise it sits below the new EOS Rebel
T7 or 2000D in Canon’s range.
Until now, the EOS model line designated by 4 digits (in all regions except US, where
we’ve had the Rebel T3, T5 and T6) has been Canon’s no-frills entry-level DSLR. Until
recently the 2000D held that dubious honor, but Canon obviously thinks that there is
room for another camera that shaves the fat even more, and – confusing nomenclature
aside – the EOS Rebel T100 / EOS 4000D is the outcome.
Canon hopes that the aggressively priced EOS 4000D will easily appeal the new users
who have been drawn into photography through their smartphones, and they are now
ready to make the next step.
However, these new users have become habituated to large and intuitive touchscreen
displays as they have in their smartphones, and, significantly, Canon hasn’t seen fit to
include that one on the EOS 4000D – so will it feel like a step back instead of step
Product: Canon EOS 4000D
My rating: 4 out of 5
The EOS 4000D carries an 18MP sensor inside this it which allows for compelling
storytelling with superb control over depth of field for beautifully blurred image
backgrounds or which also sets the tone for the rest of the features.
DIGIC 4+ is a fast and responsive image processor which enables the Full HD(1920 x
1080) video recording and it is capable of recording at 30, 25 and 24 frame rates. To put
it in perspective, we are now on the 8th iteration of Canon’s DIGIC processor, although
the latest EOS DSLRs are using DIGIC 7 chips.
The ISO of the camera is also expandable from 6400 to 12800 through which you can
take the shooting rich, atmospheric photos even during the night-time and this made the
camera as capable of low light photo shooting.
Autofocus system is pretty dated – it contains 9-point system when composing
through the optical viewfinder, or a contrast-based system when shooting in live view
with the 2.7in / 230k dot LCD screen; note continuous AF is not available for the video.
Optical viewfinder delivers 95% coverage, which is pretty typical or very rare to see on
an entry-level DSLR – so, as we always warn, it’s a worth paying particular attention to
the edges of the frame when you are reviewing your images, as there are little bit
chances that you’ll find unwanted elements creeping into your shots.
It features all the basic specifications you’d expect from a DSLR like APS-C sensor, Wi-
Fi for sharing images via Canon’s Camera Connect app, manual control, numerous
creative filters and so on.
