Canon to Release Its Most Affordable DSLR Camera Ever
Canon has long catered to new photographers. The first Rebel camera, known in other parts of the world as the EOS 300D, was a major milestone for the brand; launched in 2003, it was the first DSLR offered by them or anyone for less than a grand. Fifteen years later, Canon will break new ground with the EOS 4000D, an 18-megapixel camera model exclusive to Europe that will retail for roughly $385 USD.
Though experienced photographers might scoff at its specs and features — a dated 9-point autofocus, 2.7 inch screen with low resolution — Canon is targeting European smartphone users in search of a humble upgrade. The model was announced in conjunction with another entry-level addition to the Canon family: the Rebel T7 (also known as the EOS 2000D) will retail in the U.S. for $550 later this year.
