Canon 700D vs Canon 600D

Canon 700D vs Canon 600D

Canon 700D / T5i vs 600D / T3i, the Canon 600D is approx two year older than Canon 700D, take a look at the major specification comparison below,


New Sensor: Canon 700D features 18.0 Megapixel Hybrid CMOS AF sensor, Can do AF while recording videos, Canon 600D doesn’t have AF points within the sensor

Canon 700D Sensor

The EOS Rebel 700D features Canon’s new Hybrid CMOS AF System, perfect for shooting photos and video in Live View. This system combines two distinct AF technologies, phase and contrast detection AF, for speedier and more accurate focus. These complementary focusing systems are aided by pixels on the camera’s CMOS sensor that assist in predicting subject location, making continuous focus tracking quick and accurate in video recording while enhancing focusing speed.

Image Processor

 The Canon 700D features canon newly developed image processor DIGIC 5.

Image Processor 600D vs 700D


The Canon 700D DIGIC V Image Processor works with the camera’s newly developed CMOS sensor to deliver advance performance, with Canon 700D you get improved ISO sensitivity, can shoot up to 5.0 fps continuously and can even perform advanced functions like HDR Backlight Control, art filters, lens correction.


The Canon 700D features Full HD @ 30 fps with Movie Servo AF, Canon 600D Can record Full HD @ 30 fps but No AF available while recording videos.

Movie Servo AF allows continuous autofocus tracking of moving subjects while recording video. When shooting video with one of Canon’s STM lenses, such as the new EF-S 18–55mm f/3.5–5.6 IS STM, Movie Servo AF takes advantage of the lens’ stepping motor for smooth and quiet continuous AF.


Canon 600D have 3″ Vari-angle Fixed LCD Display, The Canon 700D features Vari-angle Touch Screen 3.0-inch Clear View LCD monitor II, 700D offers two-finger touch gestures for zooming or changing images focus point and shutter release can be activated with the touch of a fingertip using Touch AF.

Other feature +

Features an intelligent Multi Shot Noise Reduction tool that reduces noise even further than the camera’s sensor and the DIGIC 5 Image Processor do. With Multi Shot Noise Reduction activated, the camera takes four consecutive shots, merges and aligns them. This eliminates more noise than the Rebel’s traditional Noise Reduction filter, with little or no apparent resolution loss.

Verdict : We highly recommend you to buy Canon 700D DSLR.

Canon 100D have new sensor, 700D and 650D share the same sensor

Canon 100D sensor

According to our research we can confirm you that Canon 100D features newly developed sensor, Canon 650D / T4i and 700D / T5i shares the same sensor.

The EOS 100D sensor is a newly developed (2013) 18.0MP sensor with Hybrid CMOS II AF (80% coverage in live view) capabilities.

The EOS 700D & EOS 650D share the same sensor (2012) and DiG!C5 image processing. This sensor is capable of Hybrid AF.

The EOS 600D & EOS 550D shared the same sensor and DiG!C4 image processing (2010-2011).

Canon 650D vs. Canon 600D

Canon 650D vs Canon 600D, take a look at 650D specification comparison review and share your thought with us,

Canon 650D image sensor

Canon 650D uses 18MP APS-C Hybrid CMOS sensor with phase and contrast detection AF system, enables faster and more precise autofocus compared to 600D,  you also get standard ISO range up to 100 to 12800, and expandable up to 25600.

Canon 650D image processor

New Canon DIGIC V Image processor: The New image processor used in Canon 650D improves the overall speed & response time of camera, It increases the Continuous shooting  speed up to 5 fps and creates less noise in your JPEG images compared to 600D, the fast DIGIC V image processor also enables the camera to perform sophisticated functions such as in camera HDR Backlight Control, NR mode, art filters, lens correction and much more.

Canon 650D AF sensor

New dual AF system: Canon 600D takes lot of time to do AF when Live view is on and No AF is available during movie recording, the 650D comes with improved Hybrid phase and contrast detection AF system, It also offers Continuous AF during Video Recording, Touch Focus and Touch Click Technology, see more details below


There are four different methods of AF available during live view shooting:

Face Track mode detects a face, and continuously focuses and tracks it by switching AF points even when the subject moves to a side profile;
FlexiZone – Multi AF divides the scene into 31 AF points prioritizing the centre and subject in the foreground;
FlexiZone – Single AF mode and Quick mode, allows the focal point to be changed by touching the exact area on the LCD.
Continuous (Pre) AF mode, subjects will always be in focus even before the shutter is activated for improved focusing speed. What’s more, users will be able to perform familiar multi-touch gestures (pinch, spread and swipe actions) to zoom in and out of shots, view images and flip pages.

Canon 650D AF is approx 2X fast compared 600D during live view mode: Conventional contrast-detection focus works by shifting focus back and forth until the peak contrast is detected; the new Hybrid CMOS AF System improves this by predicting the subject’s location and approximate focus using phase detection, which makes auto-focusing twice as fast when the subject is in the zone (approx. middle of the frame).

Continuous AF during Video Recording: Yes its true, Canon 650D can do Continuous AF during Video Recording, the Rebel T4i features Canon’s new Movie Servo AF providing a quiet, continuous AF during HD video recording when using one of Canon’s newly introduced Stepping Motor (STM) lenses. The silent continuous autofocus when shooting HD video helps ensure the camera only captures the sounds of the scene being recorded.


Improved Imaging Performance Features: The EOS 650D helps novice photographers capture great images and video, even in low-light with a range of new performance features:

  • Handheld Night Scene mode
  • HDR Backlight Control mode
  • Multi-Shot Noise Reduction


Handheld Night Scene and Multi-Shot Noise Reduction captures 4 images rapidly and combine them into one blur and noise free image.

HDR Backlight Control captures images at three different exposures – under, correctly, and over-exposed – and combining them into one HDR image displaying both highlight and shadow detail.

Video snap-shot mode of canon 650D is similar to Canon 600D, nothing new.

Touch screen with 650D: For the first time canon Rebel comes with touch display, EOS controls are integrated into an intuitive 3-inch Vari-Angle Clear View LCD II Touch Screen Monitor


New STM Lenses for movie recording

The new EF-S18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM has been developed to improve movie-shooting capabilities with improved image quality throughout the entire zoom range and silent, seamless focusing. The new stepping motor drive delivers ultra smooth and precise focusing during movie recording with continuous auto-focus. Coupled with the Movie Servo AF in the EOS 650D, the camera’s built-in stereo microphone will not pick up any focusing noises while shooting scenes that require silence, and a zoom ring lock to prevent users from accidentally changing the zoom in the middle of a shot, or extend when the lens is left in a bag.

Conclusion: We have done a specification comparison review of 600D vs 550D a year ago, the 600D was a minor upgrade over 550D and we have recommended our users not to upgrade or buy 600D DSLR if you are a still shooter,

For Canon 600D users: Buy it! Hybrid CMOS sensor, Full time AF during video & live view mode, Multi-Touch vari-angle display, DIGIC V image processor that gives you 5fps of Continuous shooting speed, Canon 650D also comes with In camera HDR, Multi-frame NR mode and Handheld Night Scene mode, It’s a big change over 600D.

For 550D users: Yes, we highly recommend you update your 550D with 650D, its really a big Jump over technology.
