    By 16 April 2014

    No prizes for what makes the Canon EOS 100D White DSLR special. Yep, it's got a white coat of paint. A year after the release of the world's smallest and lightest DSLR, that being the Canon EOS 100D, the white model delivers a nigh-on identical package....

    Canon PowerShot SX700 HS pictures and hands-on

    By 12 February 2014

    When it comes to travel zooms - cameras pocketable in size but with a significant zoom lens squeezed into their designs - there are lots of options out there. Canon is no stranger to the market with many successful PowerShot models already under its belt,...

    The high-end compact camera market has gone from strength to strength over the last couple of years, and Canon is back with a bang in 2014 with the PowerShot G1 X Mark II. The update to the 2012 original model rights many of the shortcomings that we had...

    Canon EOS 1200D pictures and hands-on

    By 12 February 2014

    It's been a full three years since Canon last put out an entry-level DSLR camera, but in 2014 it's back in business with the EOS 1200D. The replacement for 2011's 1100D, the 1200D is all about the balance of price to performance. Three years has seen...

    By 10 January 2014

    Canon continues to let its N-series engineers run wild with their imaginations with the release of the PowerShot N100. And we got to test it out at the Consumer Electronics Show 2014 in Las Vegas. Unlike the square form PowerShot N that came before it,...

    Canon PowerShot G16 review

    By 2 December 2013

    There’s much to be said for sticking with something that works, but do it for too long and the item in question starts to look old. Take the Canon PowerShot G-series, here in its latest G16 form, as an example. The product line’s visual evolution...

    Canon EOS 700D review

    By 28 October 2013

    The Canon EOS 700D sits in a category of DLSR cameras that Canon says is for beginners. Its apparent stable mates include the tiny EOS M, the 1100D and the 100D, each of which the 700D is superior to in various ways. It also replaces the 650D and, in...

    Canon PowerShot S120 review

    By 10 October 2013

    Canon has a knack for making great compact cameras. The PowerShot S120, the replacement of last year's S110 model, might not reinvent the wheel, but it certainly get things turning faster in the pocketable high-end compact market. And if that's what you're...

    Canon Legria mini hands-on and sample video: The social camcorder

    By 2 October 2013

    Canon recently announced the Legria mini, a device you might have missed, not only because of its compact nature but also because it seems to be a throwback to a category of devices we've all but forgotten. The Canon Legria mini is a pocket camcorder,...

    Canon EOS-1D C hands-on, we check out the ultimate 4K videographer's DSLR

    By 9 September 2013

    The Canon EOS-1D C isn't new by any standard, but it's such an elusive - and pricey - camera that it's taken us until now to grab a hands-on look at it. Complete with the 50mm CN-E 50mm f/1.3 fully-manual cinema lens. Think Canon EOS 1D X then think even...

    By 8 September 2013

    The Canon PowerShot S120 gives one of our favourite pocketable compact cameras - the PowerShot S110 - the update treatment. We tested out the latest snapper on the Canon stand at this year's IFA electronics show to see whether it delivered more of the...

    Compact cameras are going through change of late. Size is on the down, sensor sizes on the up and cameras such as Canon's G-series have had to adapt in the fierce market. The Canon PowerShot G16, which is up there among Canon's top-of-the-line models,...

    Canon EOS 70D review

    By 2 September 2013

    At first glance the Canon EOS 70D may look like just another DSLR. But it's oh so much more than that: the 70D wages all-out war against not only the rest of the mid-level DSLR market, but also has the technology to take on mirrorless models - often called...

    Canon EOS 70D: The first sample images

    By 31 August 2013

    Mid-way through our Canon EOS 70D review process we thought it only fair to share a bunch of lovely snaps that we've taken with this rather special mid-level camera. Well, we say mid-level, but in use the 70D feels far more heavyweight in its delivery:...
