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)

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
