 Canon 1300D vs Canon 1200D Review


Canon have announced the exciting release of the Canon EOS 1300D DSLR camera, which builds upon the features of their extremely popular entry-level Canon EOS 1200D model. Originally announced in February 2014, the Canon 1200D is a lightweight, portable, and affordable digital SLR camera that is easy to use and is ideal for beginners to photography, so in this article we take a look at how it compares to the new and improved Canon 1300D.

Go straight to our specifications comparison table.



Canon 1300D Digic 4+ processor


The Canon EOS 1300D utilises Canon’s DIGIC 4+ image processor, where the 1200D used the DIGIC 4 version. The DIGIC 4+ processor offers a 60% speed increase over the DIGIC 4 at high ISO levels, and is 30% faster at processing and focusing.








Canon EOS 1300D LCD Monitor


Both the Canon EOS 1200D and the Canon EOS 1300D feature a 3” (7.5 cm) TFT LCD monitor, but where the 1200D's had a resolution of 460k dots, on the 1300D this has increased to a generous 920k dots - almost doubling the resolution! This translates to sharp, clear images with a large amount of fine detail.













Canon 1300D Control Dials



The 1200D and 1300D both offer continuous shooting at 3 frames per second. The 1200D sustains this for around 69 JPEGs, but the 1300D can manage around 1,110, which is a significant and welcome improvement.











Canon 1300D vs 1200D Review


Where the 1300D perhaps most exceeds its predecessor is in its much-needed addition of Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity. This means you can instantly connect, transfer, and backup your images to compatible smart devices using near field communication (NFC)* or with the Canon CS100 Connect Station, as well as capture shots and control the camera remotely when using the Canon Camera Connect app.


*Connectivity to smart devices is possible with Android version 4.0-4.4/5.0-5.1 or iOS 7.1/8-8.3. 

NFC connectivity is possible only with compatible Android devices.






Canon have slightly modified the dimensions on the 1300D to now measure 129 mm x 101.3 mm x 77.6 mm (W x H x D) as opposed to the 129.6 x 99.7 x 77.9 mm measurements of the 1200D. As such, there is a marginal difference in weight, with the 1300D weighing 485 grams - 5 grams more than on the 1200D.






For current users of Canon entry-level DSLRs, the 1300D offers the much-needed Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity which was lacking across most of the range, so upgrading to it will be a no-brainer. The other various improvements mentioned above should help ensure that the Canon EOS 1300D is a go to digital SLR camera for novice and intermediate photographers on a budget. We anticipate it will be a huge hit, as it offers so many great features in a very affordable package.


The 1300 D is also available in the following kit:


Canon EOS 1300D with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II lens kit


Canon EOS 1300D with EF-S 18-55mm Lens


The IS lens kit version in particular is an excellent choice, as the 4-stop image stabilisation it provides allows you to use shutter speeds at up to 4 times slower than usual - with no noticeable increase in image blur. This makes is perfectly suited for shooting in low light conditions.










The following stylish new bags are also available:


Canon Holster HL100

Canon Shoulder Bag SB100 

Canon Sling Bag SL100

Canon Backpack BP100 well as numerous other accessories which can be seen on our Canon EOS 1300D page.
