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,

Sensor

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.

Video:

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.

Display

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.
