Brand New Canon EOS 760D
Just like the 750D, the 760D features a 24.2-million-pixel APS-C CMOS sensor that has a higher pixel count than the 18-million-pixel sensor that’s found within the two-year-old EOS 700D. Despite the jump up in resolution, the new sensor provides the same standard sensitivity range of ISO 100-12,800, with an extended ISO 25,600 setting also available.
To ensure the 760D is capable of processing its higher resolution files as fast as possible, Canon has paired the new chip with its latest DIGIC 6 image processor, allowing it to shoot a continuous burst at up to 5fps. Despite this being no faster than the speed the EOS 700D shoots at, the burst depth has seen a significant improvement and where it was previously possible to rattle off 22 JPEGs or six raw files at 5fps on the 700D, it’s now possible to shoot 940 JPEGs or up to eight raw files consecutively on the 760D. To offer a comparison, the 760D’s closest rival – the Nikon D5500 – also shoots at 5fps.
For some time now we’ve got used to Canon rolling out beginner DSLRs with a nine-point diamond formation AF system, so it’s refreshing to see the EOS 760D offering a more sophisticated 19-point all-cross-type autofocus system. This is the same AF system as found on the EOS 750D and the arrangement of AF points, combined with a working range of -0.5EV to 18EV is identical to Canon’s more advanced EOS 70D.
When shooting in live view, the EOS 760D features the same Hybrid CMOS AF III system as the EOS M3, rather than Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology that’s used in the EOS 70D. It’s a system that Canon claims is close to the speed of Dual Pixel AF and it uses sensor-based phase detection points to enhance focus speed in live view when shooting stills and recording video.
