Canon 750D & 760D – Smooth Camera for Family

TEST: Canon replaces now entry-level model 700 d with two new cameras. Basically they are very equal, but some differences are there. But the differences are large enough?

When Canon introduced 750D and 760D last winter was a few little doubts the small difference in price between the two and it still noticeable difference in functionality and appearance. The cameras are aimed at a förhållandeivs similar group, but who are on two different levels.

750D is meant for those who want to step up to an SLR and have great demands on many features but want something a little simpler. 760D provides users with more features and more direct controls that allow a little more advanced users have more enjoyment out of the camera.But the performance is in many ways the same.

Parts Center

Both cameras are equipped with Canon’s new 24.4 megapixel sensor, which also sits in the EOS M II.

They have also received the new Digic 6-processor that also placed in the high-resolution 5DS, 5DS R (even though they have two each instead of one as in the case of 750D and 760D).

For those who love the film or use live view, so is the new fasdetekterande autofokusystemet also good news. The system will respond to the name hybrid CMOS AF-III and according to Canon, the speed to be almost in the same class as in their Dual Pixel AF sitting in 7 d II and 70 d.

But even the kontrastdetekterande focus system is upgraded from its predecessor 700 d. From 9 points in 700 d to 19 points in 750D and 760D, the same system that’s in 70 d. A pretty hefty upgrade. They also share the new light meter with 7560 RGB and INFRARED pixels which, among other things, will be keener on catching skin tones accurately compared to before.

The processor and the sensor allows ISO sensitivity is the same between the two cameras. 100-12800 which is expandable up to 25 600 if desired. Specifications that are left then 700 d is including burst shooting at 5 frames per second, filming in 1080 at 30 frames per second and also that both cameras have an excellent fold-out touch screen at three inches.

Both cameras also have Wi-Fi, something that can be seen as standard at present, in all cases for cameras in this class. It makes it so clearly, quickly and easily to share pictures you take via social media. The news here is that they also have the NFC which allows you to connect the camera with your NFC-enabled smartphone, just hold them very near each other. Smart and easy.

Functions for 500 dollars

If now the cameras are so similar in terms of performance, what is it that separates them? Mainly, there are differences among the controls.

Looking at the two cameras from different directions and variations. But the basic difference is that 760D has a display on the upper side. This means that it may not have the program dial to the right of the camera. Why sit program dial to the left of the viewfinder, on 750D (which lacks top display) sits on the right. Program knob on 760D also has a lock button on the top which must be pressed down to the steering wheel can be rotated. It is a common feature on many cameras, for that you should not change the shooting mode involuntarily. Personally, I think that a sluggish steering wheel usually works more smoothly because it does not require two fingers and thus a bit trickier grip on the camera when you want to change the shooting mode.

760D also has an adjustment wheel on the back of the camera where the 750D has only 4-way buttons. The g r that you can easily adjust the exposure compensation, for example in Av or Tv modes. 750D has instead a direct button that you can hold, and then scroll to the front input wheel to adjust the exposure compensation. At the top, above the display on 760D and in front of the programs knob on 750D, are three small buttons. The choice of autofokuspunktsområde and ISO is the same on both.

But the 760D used the third button to light up the display on the top when you’re shooting in the dark. The 750D button is used to switch off the screen on the back, which otherwise is lit all the time (except when the shutter button is pressed halfway) and shows, among other things, exposure information.

With regard to the purely physical differences as they do that if I have both cameras in front of me and get to choose what I’m going to pick up and use as fall elections in nine cases out of 10 at 760D. But it is my personal choice, based on that I’m used to shooting with SLR camera and would like to have access to quick adjustments and direct buttons as possible. If I were a beginner, or just not interested to set up so much, so I would probably just as soon have been able to pick up 750D because it is perceived as a little easier and straight on.

Therefore, as one of the most noticeable on the inside is that with 760D, you can shoot in HDR, which is not possible with the 750D.

Second sense

The predecessor 700 d had, as mentioned, a simple autofocus system that really felt easier. Less focus points and not as accurate. The new focus system allows the camera feels more advanced, more cross-shaped focus points also allows the camera to focus with more precision. So it’s a win both purely experiential and practical. Outer casing on the cameras is, as before, most made of different composite materials so they are not as stable as they are a bit more expensive and crispier models. But they’re still okay, some controls feels a bit plastic but it’s not too dangerous.

The surface is dull and a little lumpy (very small lumpy) which gives a good friction when you hold the camera, but it is also an area that feels as if it can easily become scratched and get badges. We have not subjected our test cameras for some excessive danger, but if, for example, they are in a bag together with something else so it’s not impossible to scratch the shell a little lighter than what you would do on a different camera.

Despite the fact that both cameras are relatively small grip is good. If you have very large hands, maybe it’s in but you can count on a camera in this class.

Wirelessly without direct button

These two models are the first from Canon that has wifi and nfc. NFC makes it faster to connect camera and smartphone, on your smartphone now has the nfc. And it is necessary to choose the Wi-Fi function, sitting and hiding inside the menu so it’s not quite as smooth as one would wish to get start it if you do not have the nfc.

It takes too many button presses. In all cases when compared to some competitors where there is a dedicated button for wifi which makes it much faster and easier to transfer pictures or control the camera via the phone. I hope that the sequel to these two have a function button that leads directly to wifimenyn.

Point your way

Every time I try a camera with touch screen wont it get either scolded or praised, rarely anything in between. Canon among those who usually get praised for their touchscreens. This is because they sound so much be verifiable from the screen, instead of that you still must enter and Winkle among buttons when to set things. When you film with any of the STM-lenses which focuses very quietly (except perhaps the new 50 mm f/1.8 STM buzzing a bit too loudly), it is very easy to change the focus point during recording, only duttar to the screen where you want the focus to end up. STM-the engines work in moderate speed for it to look right nice out. Perfect for those who want to start to play a bit more with video.

Something that would have been great is if you could access the menu via a screen printing when using live view. Then had been able to avoid pressing physical keys to make changes even further into the menu system while shooting.

White dots

Canon has launched since the cameras went out with a service message in which they announce to anyone who bought any of these cameras should check the serial number on their camera (which stands on the camera’s bottom side), if the serial number starts with 01 or 02, it may be that your camera need to be sent in for service.

You can check to see if your camera already serviced before it sold, open bateriluckan and see if there is a black dot in the cavity in the left upper part of the battery compartment, if the dot is there is the camera serviced. The users had problems with are white spots in the pictures, however, this is an issue that later series had.

Image quality

Both cameras have a feature that can prevent flicker when filming in such as fluorescent lighting.

Compare it with the predecessors to have the dynamic range increased by about a half step. Thus in comparison with competitors such as Nikon D5500 is around 1.5 step worse. However, the image quality is good and so is the video quality. Shoot it mostly in jpg, you get nice images directly from the camera.


These two cameras are therefore very similar in performance. This means that you do not get more picture quality for the money if you add a 100 dollars and buy 760D instead of 750D, rather that if you are a more familiar photographer so is probably 760D it as you want to watch.

Are you a beginner to trade up from a compact, or perhaps mobile camera, 750D is closer at hand. Both cameras are simple to use and produces great pictures right out of the camera. They are both also a lift from its predecessor with the new processor, sensor and a current autofocus system.
