Canon EOS 1300D review: Introduction

The EOS 1300D is Canon’s latest entry-level DSLR, and slots in as a direct successor to the 1200D that came out in 2014. On the face of things, there doesn’t appear to be a huge difference between the two, with both models sharing the same 18-million-pixel sensor, nine-point AF system and 95% pentamirror viewfinder. That said, the newer model does benefit from the addition of built-in Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity, along with a slightly faster image processor and a much-improved rear LCD display. Is this enough to help the 1300D stand out from its rivals in what is an increasingly competitive sector of the market?
