<strong>London, UK, 26th February 2018</strong> – Canon Europe today unveils the launch of the EOS 2000D and EOS 4000D, Canon’s latest entry-level DSLR cameras. With a wide range of practical and easy to use features, these new cameras cater to the storytelling needs of individuals taking their first steps into interchangeable lens photography and those wanting to create superbly detailed DSLR quality pictures and cinematic Full HD movies with ease.</p>
<p>The newest additions to Canon’s entry-level DSLR range, the <a class="formatlink" title="EOS 2000D" href="https://www.canon-europe.com/cameras/eos-2000d/" target="_self">EOS 2000D</a> and <a class="formatlink" title="EOS 4000D" href="https://www.canon-europe.com/cameras/eos-4000d/" target="_self">EOS 4000D</a> have been designed for people who seek out new experiences and want to share their adventures seamlessly to social media. The cameras’ powerful combination of APS-C sensor technology, DIGIC 4+ image processor, seamless Wi-Fi connectivity and straightforward in-camera feature guides enable stories to be captured and shared with highly detailed photos and Full HD movies.</p>
<p><!--more--></p>
<p>With the EOS 2000D featuring a new 24.1 Megapixel APS-C sensor, and the EOS 4000D using an 18 Megapixel APS-C sensor, each camera allows for compelling storytelling with superb control over depth of field for beautifully blurred image backgrounds. Shooting rich, atmospheric photos during night-time adventures is also made possible with both models capable of low light shooting up to ISO 6400, expandable to ISO 12800.</p>
<p>The DIGIC 4+ image processor, used in both models, powers Canon’s Scene Intelligent Auto mode, enabling simple point and shoot photography with superb image results, as it automatically optimises every shot. The fast and responsive DIGIC 4+ image processor enables the Full HD video capabilities in both models, breathing cinematic life into captured memories.</p>
<p>In addition to a rear mounted LCD screen (7.5 cm on the EOS 2000D and 6.8 cm on the EOS 4000D), both cameras feature a centrally mounted optical viewfinder, providing a distinctly authentic photography experience and allowing stories to be told just as they were experienced with the naked eye. Decisive moments in unfolding stories can be captured with responsive and precise nine point auto focus and continuous shooting at 3.0 frames per second.</p>
<p>Both cameras are Wi-Fi enabled for seamless smartphone connectivity via the Canon Camera Connect app (iOS and Android), enabling adventurers to rapidly shoot and share their content on social media whilst on the move. New images can be conveniently backed up to Canon’s cloud storage service, irista, via a Wi-Fi connection, ensuring stories and memories shared are never lost.</p>
<p>These processes are made even easier for the EOS 2000D with the inclusion of Near Field Communication (NFC), which can establish a Wi-Fi connection to a smartphone by simply tapping the device on the camera (available on compatible Android devices).</p>
<p>Both models include simple in-camera feature guides, perfect for those looking to improve their storytelling potential as they upgrade from a smartphone. Both cameras include six image settings outside of basic auto modes and a variety of creative filters, enabling experimentation with manual control and the artistic freedom to tell dynamic and vibrant stories. Those embarking on their first DSLR adventure will also benefit from the Canon Photo Companion app, which provides the necessary tips on getting the best out of the cameras.</p>
<p>The EOS 2000D and EOS 4000D’s excellent battery life delivers approximately 500 pictures, or one hour 30 minutes and one hour 15 minutes of HD video respectively, allowing for peace of mind during extended outdoor adventures and the freedom to explore.</p>
<p>Both DSLR models are compatible with over 80 Canon EF and EF-S lenses and range of accessories, giving beginners the greatest choice of systems as they grow and develop their photography skills. The new cameras will be sold as a body only option or with a selection of lens kit options, including an 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II lens.</p>
<p>Canon’s latest entry-level DSLR cameras offer a fantastic gateway to the joys of interchangeable lens photography. The Canon EOS 2000D and Canon EOS 4000D provide an easy and reliable shooting experience that enable users to capture detailed images and sharp Full HD video. As people step-up from their smartphone and expand their creativity, Canon’s new DSLR cameras will intuitively capture superbly detailed professional-looking images, time after time.</p>
<p>The Canon EOS 2000D is available to pre-order from Canon’s online store from 26<sup>th</sup>February 2018.</p>

Please be sure to add both to the buyer's guide section so the typical CR reader will know if these two are worth getting :/

Re: Canon Announces the EOS Rebel 4000D, The Cheapest DSLR Ever? Will Come to North America as the E

According to techradar:

4000D costs £369.99 with the kit lens
2000D costs £469.99 with the kit lens

So to summarize the low end of the lineup...

800D gets 24 megapixel sensor with DPAF, 45 autofocus points, Digic 7 processor
200D gets 24 megapixel sensor with DPAF, 9 autofocus points, Digic 7 processor
2000D gets 24 megapixel sensor, NO DPAF, 9 autofocus points, Digic 4+ processor
4000D gets 18 megapixel sensor, NO DPAF, 9 autofocus points, Digic 4+ processor

Now we just need to find out which 24 megapixel sensor is in the 2000D... same as the other newer cameras, or the one from the 750D (with no on-sensor ADC), which it probably is.

Why not? Even CR readers could have relatives or friends who could find these cameras useful.

It does have never processor Digic 4+ vs. 4. It lacks sensor cleaning, diopteric correction and has plastic lens mount. Of course the price is much less. There probably are software changes also.

I wish canon would kit these with a NiftyFifty or something like that. The sensor on the iPhone (a very popular smartphone lineup) is about 10X smaller than APS-C. But with an aperture of f/1.8 it’s 8X faster than the average aperture of an 18-55.

It can't be the newer 24MP sensor because it doesn't have DPAF. And obviously Canon isn't going to develop a new non-DPAF-but-on-chip-ADC for the 2000D.

It's basically 1300D but with cheaper build. And the 1300D is basically 1200D with wifi. And the 1200D is basically 600D in a smaller body.

The press release says "The new cameras will be sold as a body only option or with a selection of lens kit options, including an 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II lens".

While it looks Canon has still an inventory of 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II to empty, buyers will be able to tailor the cameras to their needs - as long as they know what to look for. It is interesting to know which kits Canon will make available, and in which regions.

Although I'm afraid most people will be more interested in the zoom range than max aperture, and most electronic stores will stock kits with the 18-55. Yet more and more people buy online, and could find different options.

50 mm lens is way too narrow for general use. Also the camera with plastic bayonet mount clearly is not intended for those who swap the lenses. Canon does have the 24 mm pancake but it is only 2/3 stops faster than the kit lens and lacks IS.

Canon has sometimes had double kits but often the lens lacks IS.

Will Canon's strategy to counter smart phones be effective?

It is clear that Canon's strategy against smart phones is to have relatively inexpensive dsrl cameras with feature sets designed for new dsrl users. Will it work?

These are typically the type of Canon camera your find in Costco, Wal-Mart etc. where many of the purchasers will only ever take family holiday snaps.
They are not meant for advanced users but if they get people onto a more creative photographic journey then Canon has done its job.

They could also be the first camera many could afford (or wants to spend little anyway), and test if photography is something they like (and are good for). Remember that for many years people entered photography with cameras like the Pentax K1000, no-frills cameras yet good enough.

Sure, one could also go for something used, but there's always the risk of a dud.

If I had young children I'd get one for them to play with and learn. Just like my grandfather had to get me a cheap camera so I no longer put my hands on my father's one... :D

Or maybe I could get one for my father, now that he's old, and never transitioned to digital photography.

The title says, "The Cheapest DSLR Ever?"

You do understand what a question mark is, I hope. :)

If they would only add an optical viewfinder and mirrorbox to it, add a modicum of weather sealing so that my inverted camera on strap didn't get water in it, make it not painful to hold with heavy telephoto lenses, allow the viewfinder to fully articulate, improve the touchscreen interface... and give it an EF mount, I would probably agree!

The 4000D is a bazillion times more advanced than the camera that I had in my high school photography club (a film Minolta), and I had an endless fun with that.

I think photography is a wonderful hobby, and the more accessible cameras can be, the better.

Re: Canon Announces the EOS Rebel 4000D, The Cheapest DSLR Ever? Will Come to North America as the E

If you want to take superbly detailed DSLR quality pictures what would you use your DSLR camera like a point and shoot for? If you always use the Scene Intelligent Auto mode with the rear LCD view you will never learn what the settings mean and how to change them to have the required effect. Can you create silky waterfalls in SIA mode? Hardly. Can you take true macro shots with relatively large DoF? No.

And we still have no innovation in the entry-level camera line-up. Both the 2000D and the 4000D have the same old kit lens and sensor and processor as the 1000D had years ago. :(

Canon should update the entry-level cameras with Digic 6 processor and a newer sensor though it can have 18 MPs. :)
