Quick OverviewModel - Canon EOS 8000D
Viewfinder & Display
Featuring the highest resolution among EOS entry-level SLR cameras, the EOS 8000D incorporates an approximately 24.2-megapixel APS-C-size CMOS sensor that, coupled with Canon’s DIGIC 6 image processor, delivers both impressive image quality performance and a fast continuous shooting speed of up to approximately five frames per second. Furthermore, the cameras’ AF system, comprising 19 all cross-type AF points,*1 is on a par with that employed in the high-end EOS 70D (released in August 2013), and realizes a significant increase in AF points over the 9 point all cross-type AF system included in the EOS Kiss X7i (released in April 2013).
The Canon EOS 8000D features Hybrid CMOS AF*2 III, an AF technology that has been greatly enhanced to ensure high-speed AF performance during Live View shooting and when capturing video. Based on the scene being captured, Hybrid CMOS AF III enables focusing using only phase-difference AF, making possible a focusing speed that is up to approximately 4.8 times*3 faster than that offered by the EOS Kiss X7 (released in April 2013), which employs Hybrid CMOS AF II. Additionally, the combination of Hybrid CMOS AF III and the cameras’ touch-screen vari-angle LCD monitor and Touch Shutter feature, which lets users release shutter simply by touching the LCD screen, enables quick and easy focus on a subject.
Featuring Wi-Fi and NFC*4 technology, the new EOS-series entry-level lineup allows users to transfer image files or remotely operate the camera using a smartphone or other mobile device.*5 In addition, through a connection made possible by simply bringing the EOS 8000D in contact with the Canon Connect Station CS100, a new-concept photo and movie storage device to be released in June 2015, users can easily back-up and manage their photo and video libraries.
*1 Number of AF sensors, cross-type AF sensors and dual-cross-type AF sensors will change depending on lens used.
*2 A hybrid AF system that combines image-plane phase-difference AF and contrast AF depending on the shooting conditions.
*3 Compliant with CIPA standards.
*4 NFC is an ISO-defined wireless communication technology international standard.
*5 Requires Canon Camera Connect app, available for download for free from the App Store and Google Play.

Whether you’re new to the hobby of photography or you’re upgrading your equipment from a point-and-shoot camera, obtaining a DSLR is a good investment. But with so many options out there, how do you choose the right one? Every camera has so many specs and features that it’s hard to pick one. Ryans has quite a large stock of popular DSLR models and our experts at Ryans are always ready to help you out so that you can make the best purchase decision within your budget. In this article, we’ll take a look at the various things you should know to make the right purchase.
Sensor size is probably the most vital feature of your camera, but it’s one that a lot of people don’t know about or understand. Each camera has an image sensor that records the image through the viewfinder and sends it to the memory card. A larger helps the camera to capture more information, which eventually produces clearer images. 'Full Frame' or 36mm x 24mm is the largest sensor size. The sensor size of the most amateur and semi-professional cameras is 22mm x 16mm. The size of the sensor varies with the model and brand of the camera, however, you should always opt for a larger sensor within your budget.
Most people think that megapixels determine the quality of the camera, as manufacturers always talk about megapixels while highlighting camera features. It is certainly an important feature to take into account but probably not as important as you think. With a device at or around seven megapixels, you can easily print sharp pictures up to 14x11, which is quite a bit larger compared to what most people print. Even entry-level cameras, nowadays, come with at least 15 megapixels. Any DSLR you buy today is most likely to come with more megapixels than you need. In short, you don’t need to worry about megapixels, as you’ll get more than enough anyway.
If you want to use your DSLR for video recording, you need to take a look at the video capabilities of your next camera. Some entry-level cameras can record in full HD or 1080p, while others are non-HD and record in 720p. You should also take a look at different frame rates, as higher frame rate helps to smooth motion.
Modes and Editing Features
Most of the DSLR cameras come with plenty of camera modes such as portrait, landscape, night, indoor, panorama, and action. You should take a look at the camera’s shooting modes and select the one that offers greater options for your photography needs.
If you’re not into advanced photography work, the 'auto' shooting mode is good enough for day-to-day photography.
On the other hand, learning to adjust aperture or shutter speed in ‘manual’ mode could help you bring the best out of your photographs. But when you’re just getting started, built-in modes can be handy while taking pictures.
Several cameras also come with quick editing features that enable you to edit photos right from the screen on the back. These features include filters, automatic adjustment, or changing exposure settings.
The vast majority of entry- and mid-level cameras are packaged with what’s called a “kit lens,” which is an 18–55mm (or thereabouts) zoom lens. These lenses tend not to have the same quality glass or the same number of features as more expensive lenses, but they do the trick. However, if there’s a package deal where you can get a nicer 18–55mm lens, a 50mm prime lens, or even an extra telephoto lens, that can make a big difference in your purchase decision. We also have a separate article dedicated to camera lenses, you should check that out for having a greater understanding of different features of camera lenses.
Although most DSLRs, entry-level cameras, in particular, look and feel pretty much the same, you may want to keep a few things in mind. Some models have LCD view-screen, which are better than the screens included on cheaper models.
Some models come with screens that pop out of the back of the camera and rotate, which is very effective if you want to take shots at unique angles. Some high-end cameras include a touchscreen, which is easier to navigate than using the small buttons on the back of the camera.
There are some cameras meant for people with smaller hands, so it’s better to check how it feels in your hand before you make the purchase.
Most entry-level cameras have polycarbonate bodies, which are light-weight but not as sturdy or nice-looking as high-end cameras. You have to pay extra for having a camera with a sturdy and appealing body.
When you’re buying a DSLR, you most likely to have an intent to use it for a long period. So, it is crucial for you to make an informed purchase to get the best out of your bucks.
