Canon EOS 100D review

Canon Camera EOS 100D

The Canon EOS 100D marks something of a sea change for Canon as a response to the growing popularity of Compact System Cameras (CSCs)

Despite being the smallest and lightest DSLR in the world, the Canon EOS 100D is by no means stripped back in order to make that grade. In fact, it has much the same specification as Canon’s larger triple-digit models. 

For instance, the Canon EOS 100D sensor is the same resolution as the EOS 700D, although the 18MP APS-C Hybrid AF II CMOS sensor is smaller and thinner sensor to help make the 100D smaller than typical DSLRs.

The sensor itself has an ISO range of 100-12,800, extendable to 25,600 in the ‘H’ setting. The sensor, as the name suggests, features built-in phase-detect autofocus (AF) technology and as a result supports continuous AF when recording HD video. 

The 100D supports HD video capture at a range of frame rates – including 30, 25 and 24fps – as well as offering the option to shoot at 50fps, albeit at the lower 1280 x 720 resolution. 

  • Good design including rubberised handgrip
  • Creative filters feature live preview
  • Strikingly small body


  • Similar price to the Canon EOS 700D
  • AF system only features one cross-type point
  • Small design means small battery
