Canon EOS 1100D SLR as 'effortless as a point-and-shoot'

New Canon EOS 1100D digital SLR camera said to be as easy to use as a compact camera

Canon has just launched the EOS 1100D: an entry-level digital SLR camera that Canon claims is as easy to use as a point-and-shoot camera. This ease of use will stem from new Basic feature, which will allow users to adjust settings based on easy-to-understand language rather than technical terms, and it will also feature a built-in Feature Guide mode.

The 1100D will have a 12.2-megapixel CMOS sensor and Canon's DIG!C 4 image processor. It will have a 2.7in LCD screen without a variable-angle hinge and it will shoot video at up to 1280x720p.

Pricing for the EOS 1100D has not been announced yet, but it will sit in Canon's range between the EOS 1000D and the EOS 550D. It will be available from late March in various kits as well as in body-only form.

Available kits:

Single Kit (with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 III)
Single IS Kit (with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II)
Twin Kit (with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 III and EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III)
Twin IS Kit (with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II and EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS)

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
