Almost three years on from its release, Canon has updated its entry-level DSLR with HD video, an improved sensor and greater ISO range. We put the Canon EOS 1100D to the test
Canon’s EOS 1100D follows the release of a fine couple of entry-level DSLRs.
The Nikon D3100 boasts 1080p HD video, a 14.2-million-pixel sensor and a very helpful in-camera shooting guide.
The Pentax K-r is that company’s similarly priced option.
In its favour is 6fps shooting and a maximum sensitivity of ISO 25,600.
Both models feature a 3in LCD screen, with the K-r offering an impressive 921,000 dots.
All three cameras are similarly sized, but the K-r is a little heavier than the other two. For an even more lightweight option, compact system cameras offer a fine alternative to a DSLR.
Considering that models like the Samsung NX11 also feature APS-C-sized sensors, the choice is not an easy one to make.
