Both models come with a 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor and Canon’s DIGIC 6 image processor and support an ISO   range of 100 to 12,800 (up to ISO 6400   for movies).

Flicker Detection technology, provides consistently exposed images under artificial light for even greater flexibility. A capable 19-point cross-type AF system can handle any situation, including shooting fast moving animals on safari and action-packed adventure sports.

A new metering system provides real-time evaluative metering with the image sensor, utilising RGB data. Users can choose between 315-zone evaluative, centre-weighted average, partial metering on 10% of the Live View screen or Spot metering on 2.7% of the screen.

The ergonomic grip and 3-inch Vari-Angle LCD monitor provide easy handling in all situations. The EOS 760D provides a similar control layout to Canon’s enthusiast EOS models, with a rear Quick Control Dial, top LCD panel and Intelligent Viewfinder for quick access and review of both settings and images. Continuous shooting is available in both models with a maximum frame rate of five fps for approximately 940 JPEGs or eight CR2.RAW files.

Both models support movie recording with Full HD resolution and in MP4 format for easy online sharing.

The Hybrid CMOS AF III is able to track or swap focus, while compatibility with STM lenses provides silent, smooth focusing for supreme accuracy and speed. The EOS 760D also gives videographers a host of additional creative movie modes from shooting atmospheric movies, with detail in the shadows and highlights with HDR movie mode, or instantly creating the effect of professional tilt-shift lenses with Miniature Effect.

Embedded Wi-Fi and NFC enables users to share images and movie clips quickly and simply with your favoured people and devices. Users can also post images on social networks or store on cloud services, such as Canon’s online image storage service irista, using Wi-Fi for direct uploads.

The EOS 760D and EOS 750D will be available from April 2015 as body-only or bundled with various kit lenses. Prices will be set at dealer discretion. For more information, visit
