Canon Updates Lineup Of Entry-Level DSLRs & Launches 4K Capable M50
March 22 13:06 2018 Print This Article

Canon has just updated their lineup of entry-level SLRs, mirrorless, and compact bridge cameras with the EOS 3000D, 1500D, M50 mirrorless and finally the PowerShot G1X Mark III. The first two are of course your very well known DSLR form factor and compatible with Canon’s EF-S lenses; the M50 is part of the mirrorless range and is the first Canon camera to shoot 4K video; and finally the G1X Mark III is the third iteration of their large APS-C compact camera – probably one of the biggest sensors in consumer cameras today. Alongside all these, Canon is also introducing a revolutionary AI-capable automatic bounce flash called the 470EX-AI that has motors and a computer chip to calculate bounce flash direction and distance automatically.
