Canon has been put under pressure from other manufacturers to increase the resolution of their beginner DSLRs and the 24.2-million-pixel sensor the 750D and 760D employ bring both models into line with their closest rivals. Whereas the Pentax K-S2 and Nikon D5500 both go without an anti-aliasing filter in bid to ensure they resolve the finest levels of detail, the 750D and 760D hold onto an anti-aliasing filter. With this in place, the 760D doesn’t resolve quite the same super-fine level of detail, but the 3200l/ph the sensor is capable of resolving at ISO 100 is what we’d expect from an APS-C sensor with an anti-aliasing filter.

Just like the 750D, the 760D’s dynamic range is a little way off the best results we’ve recorded from DSLR’s that feature 24-million-pixel sensors. The lower dynamic range readout across the ISO indicates that shadow regions become increasingly noisy and allow less shadow detail to be pulled back from its raw files.
