|Canon 850D (18-55mm) Key Features
Equipped with a 24 Megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and DIGIC 8 processor, Canon’s EOS Rebel T8i (EOS 850D in most regions) is the company’s ‘high-end entry-level’ DSLR. When shooting through the viewfinder there’s a 45-point all-cross-type AF system, while Canon’s excellent Dual Pixel AF is available for live view and video capture using the camera’s fully articulating touchscreen. When in live view, the camera offers both face and eye detection. 4K video can be captured at 24p and Full HD at 60p. Vloggers will appreciate the ability to shoot vertical video. The camera features a 3.5mm input for an external microphone. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
Dual pixel CMOS AF
When shooting in Live View, Dual Pixel CMOS AF makes autofocusing faster and more accurate so your shots are sharp and in focus. You also get 3,975 selectable AF positions across your frame for more flexibility in composing your shots.
Eye and Face Detection
Say cheese! Capture every emotion in razor-sharp quality with Eye Detection AF that focuses and tracks the eye of your subject in Live View mode.
EOS iTR AF (face detection) also ensures clear portrait shots by tracking the face of your moving subject in viewfinder shooting.
Superior Viewfinder Shooting
When shooting through the optical viewfinder, the all cross-type 45-point AF* sensor makes precise focusing on moving subjects quick and easy.
There is also no time lag between the actual subject’s movement and the viewfinder’s display, so you do not lose track of your moving subject.
*The number of AF points varies depending on the lens attached, and the aspect ratio setting.
High-speed Continuous Shooting
Sometimes, photo-worthy moments happen in the blink of an eye. Don’t miss the action unfolding before you with continuous shooting at speeds up to 7.5 frames per second in Live View One-shot AF, or 7 frames per second in viewfinder mode.
