Performance and image quality

The 18Mp resolution is big enough to zoom around the living room.Generally, unless you shoot for the money or need good pixel-by-pixel image quality, the Canon 700D is quite sufficient for most amateurs.

The colors of the Canon 700D are very modern and fresh. This is a big step up from the 50Ds and earlier. The screen is very flattering, the colors are rich and colorful. Photos uploaded to the computer will not look as good as on the screen. The 700D’s skin tone when shooting portraits is bright and rosy like Canon. However, as this is a crop machine, this is a 3 digit line, so image quality will still be noisy, even at low ISO. It is not smooth and not suitable if you are going to use fashion photography, high-end products.

When it comes to ISO reduction, the Canon 700D only looks good when using around ISO 2000 and vice versa. Incredibly high ISO levels up to 12800 or 25600 just make the scene but have no practical effect as it’s too noisy and loses detail.

The 700D’s dynamic range falls into the “popular” category. However, it is still quite sufficient to capture relatively sharp contrast scenes. In good and sufficient lighting conditions, the dynamic range of the Canon 700D does the job well.

Even for completely ignorant users, the color of the image will still be much brighter than if you were using an old Canon camera like the 50D or a smartphone.

Canon 700D has a simple focusing system with only 9 points – not the strong point of the model in general, when in the same price range as other models such as M3, M100 with the advantage that Mirrorless machines have a higher number of focus points. dominant. But in reality, most users will only use the central midpoint – so the pixel count isn’t too important when targeting this general user group. Focus on using a moderate live speed, enough for you to use it often.


Canon 700D has a continuous shooting speed of 5 frames per second, which is a good number for an amateur camera. Features that the 700D lacks over the 2-digit and semi-professional series include:
– The row of buttons and the upper secondary screen
– Rotating aperture dial
– No K temperature in white balance

Another feature limitation is that the device does not have built-in Wi-Fi, which can be overcome by using a versatile drive to transfer images to smartphones. Battery life is approximately 400-500 shots. If you enable live view, you can only get 200 shots. It is recommended to purchase at least 1 additional spare battery.

Appropriate user
Has been on the market for a few years, but the Canon 700D still has relatively advanced quality and features and shows no signs of obsolescence. The machine remains the number 1 choice of students, simple workers, when the investment budget is still limited. Its advantage is full and good shooting function. It is also a durable machine with some minor errors.

You would choose the Canon 700D if:
– You have less than 10 million VND
– You are an amateur photographer, the owner of a small shop wants to take product photos
– Shoot family, personal, travel

You will choose better products if your needs are:

– Need extra buttons, extra screen for quick use: select row 2 numbers 60D, 80D
– You like compact and trendy features: choose Canon M50, M6 mirrorless cameras
