Canon EOS 760D Review – One camera in two flavors




The Canon EOS 760D offers over its predecessor, the 700D, some interesting changes: a custom body with monochrome screen at the top, a rotary wheel at the rear, a new 24-megapixel sensor and a new autofocus system. It’s a great camera, but it is quite busy in this price range and so there are many alternatives, not least of Canon itself. We are very pleased with the improved autofocus, but in sensor area, Canon, apart from the increased resolution made no real catch.

Canon 760D intro

We all were waiting a while for the successor of the Canon EOS 700D. The 700D was announced in March 2013 and was at least a custom sensor and a new STM kit lens after almost identical to the 650D. After more than two years of waiting Canon comes back with a sequel, and this time has changed considerably longer. The more than five-year-old 18-megapixel sensor was exchanged for a brand new 24-megapixel sensor with Hybrid CMOS off III autofocus system, with a combination of contrast and phase detection autofocus. That should allow a smooth and relatively fast autofocus when using live view and during filming. The system is not as advanced as the 70D, but comes close. The autofocus system is in any case immediately started to kick and now uses the 19-point system of the same 70D.

Most striking about the successor to the 700D is that it’s not just one, but in fact two cameras: the Canon EOS 750D and the Canon EOS 760D. We felt like both cameras simultaneously to the tooth, but Canon could only provide us the 760D. Whatever the differences between the two cameras, we will discuss later in this review. With the advent of this new scions Canon has its line-up in any case widened considerably. The 700D will remain just in sales and underneath we find the 100D and 1200D. Moreover, we have still two killer in the APS-C-segment: the 70D and 7D Mark II, then the full frame cameras make their appearance. All in all, Canon has so seven different APS-C cameras on the market. Is there sufficient rationale for the 750D, the 760D and the other cameras?
