Canon launched new cameras in PH; 2 DSLRS; 2 Vlogging cameras; 1 AI flash

Canon Philippines launched a new batch of cameras and a flash with AI, Thursday, March 22, 2018.

There are two (2) entry-level DSRLS — the EOS 3000D and the EOS 1500D; two small cameras which are best for videos or vlogging — Canon EOS M50, a mirrorless camera, and Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III, a compact digital camera.


The first AI-powered flash, the 470EX AI was also introduced.

The Canon’s mirrorless: EOS M50

The EOS M50 is designed with the most advanced functionalities that will take anyone’s photography game to new heights, Canon says.

The EOS M50 can record a 4K movie and has an improved Dual Pixel CMOS AF. It is designed for shooting ultra-HD movies and boasts of excellent precision focusing even under low light conditions. With the Touch & Drag AF, users are also able to select and move the AF frame via the touch panel while looking through the built-in 2.36 million dot Electrical Viewfinder (EVF), so even the most ephemeral moments can be captured and transformed into lasting memories.

It is powered by the new DIGIC 8 image processor and an approximately 24.1 megapixel APS-C sized CMOS sensor.


It has a built-in Electronic Viewfinder (EVF), features normal ISO speed of 25600 and expandable to 51200.

The EOS M50 is also, Canon’s first in the EOS M series to be equipped with a vari-angle LCD monitor.

NEW: Entry-level DSLRs – 1500D, 3000D

Designed for a seamless transition from smartphone to DSLR photography, the affordable entry-level EOS 1500D and EOS 3000D are the newest additions to Canon’s extensive line of EOS DSLR cameras.

EOS 3000D

The APS-C size CMOS sensor on both cameras is about 19 times larger than the 1/3.2 inch standard-type sensor typically found in a smartphone. This distinction gives the EOS 1500D and EOS 3000D an edge in performance as the large APS-C size sensor enables excellent proficiency in capturing light.

EOS 1500D

Both the EOS 1500D and EOS 3000D are equipped with an Optical Viewfinder which helps users to quickly focus and frame their subjects.
