I verified the product with Canon and confirmed the product is genuine. However, they also said the product is not meant to be sold in EU and waranty is invalid. But I am okay with it as it is made in Japan and the product is genuine Canon.
First I want to explain why four stars. While this is a great camera there is no manual included, what I got was a brick of a quick reference guide containing no less than 26 languages, all of varying number of pages. This for me is just not good enough.
The camera itself though is of very good quality, the photo quality is amazing, I am glad I bought it and I love it.
Excellent camera and great value for money. I bought this as an upgrade from an old Kodak digital camera and I'm really impressed with the durability, photo quality and battery life. I use this camera for general photography and plane spotting. Never been let down. Great camera!
I bought the Canon 800d as I am an aspiring photographer who wanted a quality camera that would last me many years to come and most importantly I wanted a quality camera to improve the quality of my photography. It is safe to say that this camera is everything that I could have hoped for and more!!
As with previous triple-digit Canon DSLR models, the 800D is a compact, lightweight and neatly styled DSLR. While it does have a slight plastic feel to it, overall build quality is actually pretty much on par for a camera of this price and specification. Although the camera itself isn't described as water resistant, I have used my camera several times in the rain and I have had no issues.
I wanted and needed a camera that was straight forward to use as I was a novice when it came to DSLR cameras and it has taken me sometime to understand photography, but this camera has helped quicken that process due to its straight forward user interface. You can have it set between two different modes, one for novices like myself and the other for more experienced DSLR users. The beginner interface uses pictures and slide bars so that you can choose the right shooting mode for the situation you are in and the slide bars make it incredibly easy to change things such as exposure within seconds.
Key features of this camera include; 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor Dual Pixel CMOS AF 3-inch/1.04m-dots vari-angle touchscreen Pentamirror viewfinder, 95% coverage at 0.82x Full HD video recording at 60p
I do absolutely love this camera and would recommend it to anyone who is wanting to up their photography game, it will not let you down.
