With only £50 separating the EOS 750D from the EOS 760D it asks the question; is there a need for two beginner models so similar in the Canon EOS line-up? Michael Topham investigates
Canon EOS 750D Review – Image Quality
The 24.2-million-pixel sensor the 750D and 760D use bring both models into line with their closest rivals in the market, namely the Nikon D5500, which also features a 24.2-million-pixel chip. The move away from an 18-million-pixel sensor to a 24-million-pixel sensor sees a jump in the output image size too – up from 5184×3456 pixels on the 700D to 6000×4000 pixels on the 750D and 760D. Unlike the Nikon D5500 and some other recent high-resolution APS-C sensors however, the 750D and 760D continue to use an anti-aliasing filter and with this in place it has its work cut out to resolve the same levels of resolution.
As our lab results indicate, the 750D’s dynamic range is still a little way off the best results we’ve recorded from other 24-million-pixel sensors. With a lower dynamic range readout across its sensitivity range this essentially means is that the sensor allows less shadow detail to be pulled back and recovered from its raw files.
