The Canon 750D


Launched in February 2015 , Canon EOS 750D is a 24.0MP Entry-Level DSLR camera with a APS-C (22.3 x 14.9 mm ) sized CMOS sensor, Fully articulated touch screen and Canon EF/EF-S lens mount.


If you’re on a budget, considering older models makes a lot of sense. For those seeking to buy their very first DSLR, the 750D and its 24.2-megapixel APS-C sensor is still a pretty attractive proposition.


Is the Canon EOS 750D a good camera? It's still a good performer, and if you're looking to buy your very first DSLR, it's certainly one of the better value ones out there. Whilst You can pick the Canon EOS 2000D or 4000D up cheaper, the 750D has some decent features that make the extra spend worthwhile.


The Canon 750D has a very laid-back control style. It has just the single manual control wheel up on the top plate, and a very easy-to-reach mode dial.

By cutting down on the number of controls, Canon has been able to make the few that do feature very easy to access. This camera is easy to use and still gives you plenty of manual control if you’re after it.

I've used this camera, with a multitude of different lenses, to shoot wildlife, landscape, portraits, weddings, air shows, toys and even the moon. The 750D is a capable performer, only letting its self down on fast moving subjects with its 5fps and a battery life of 440 shots, so investing in spare batteries is a must.


The 750D used for toy photography with the vari-angle touchscreen is a pleasure to work with, all the camera settings are available and you can take the picture with just a tap of the screen. No more bending down to look through the view finder at some obscure angle to compose the shot.

See below some examples of shots captured with the 750D and a variety of lenses attached.

Conclusion

In my opinion the 750D is a solid DSLR that is reasonably priced and gives good AF performance in a camera that is easy to use.

At this stage in its life cycle, the main reason to buy the750D is price.

If you’re looking to buy your very first DSLR, it’s certainly one of the better value ones out there.

While it’s true that you can pick up the 2000D or 4OOOD for less money, the 750D has some decent features that make the extra outlay worth it. For starters, there’s a fully-articulating touch-sensitive screen, while the 4000D only offers an 18-megapixel sensor.

The AF system is also better in the 750D.
