Canon has just announced two new additions to its EOS series, the EOS M50 and EOS Rebel T7. The first of the two, the EOS M50 is an Interchangeable Lens Camera (ILC), Canon’s first M-series camera to offer 4K video recording. On the other hand, the EOS Rebel T7 brings an upgraded CMOS sensor to deliver sharp, high-resolution images.
In a press release, the company says both models are meant for entry-level or enthusiast users, looking to upgrade their photography from a smartphone camera. The press release reads,
“Upgrading from a smartphone camera to an entry-level interchangeable lens camera (ILC) can be considered to some people a daunting task. Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, supports those looking to advance their skills by continuously developing and evolving its gear”
