Versatile Performance for Easy Control

The APS-C size CMOS sensor on both cameras is about 19 times larger than the 1/3.2 inch standard- type sensor typically found in a smartphone. This distinction gives the EOS 1500D and EOS 3000D an edge in performance as the large APS-C size sensor enables excellent proficiency in capturing light. Even in a low light environment, both models are able to produce high definition images with the most intricate of details intact.

Both the EOS 1500D and EOS 3000D are equipped with an Optical Viewfinder which helps users to quickly focus and frame their subjects without experiencing any delay in image processing. As real time viewing is possible, the Optical Viewfinder is the perfect tool for capturing clear images of fast-moving subjects.

Recognising the increase in popularity of videos, a Full HD movie shooting function is built into both models, allowing users to capture vivid and beautiful footage.

User Intuitive Features for Hassle-Free Operability

With access to six types of scene modes on a single dial, shooting with a DSLR camera has never been easier. On top of the portrait, landscape, close-up, sports, night portrait and food mode, the EOS 1500D and EOS 3000D also come with five Creative Filters. This enables users to experiment with or enhance the ambience of photos to create effects that render a soft focus feel, toy camera effect, fish-eye effect, miniature effect and an artsy grainy black and white effect.

To improve operability, the cameras’ Scene Intelligent Auto mode automatically analyses scenes and refines images to produce beautiful, rich pictures. With just a click on the shutter button, even movement and image contrast can be reflected accurately. To simplify the understanding of product functions, both cameras are equipped with a Feature Guide for beginners to ease into the world of DSLR Photography. The Canon EOS 1500D and EOS 3000D also boasts of the Creative Zone mode which allows users to create artistic photos by optimizing the shooting settings to match their shooting intentions as closely as possible.

With such ease of use, all that is required for capturing and sharing professional-looking photos on social media is simply to cultivate a sense of creativity.
