Canon EOS

Canon EOS models are Canon's line of SLR cameras. Canon has been making SLR cameras since May of 1959, when the first "Canonflex" was introduced. The Canon EOS line of SLRs was born in March, 1987, with the introduction of the EOS 650. The EOS brand stands for "Electro Optical System," but reference is also often made to EOS, the Greek goddess of dawn.

Today, Canon EOS models span a broad range from inexpensive but highly capable entry-level models to some of the most sophisticated professional SLRs on the market. Generally (in the US, at least), you'll find Canon EOS models with model numbers beginning with a letter are consumer through prosumer models, while those that begin with numbers are prosumer through professional models. At the top of the Canon EOS product line are the legendary 1-series.

Canon 5D Mark III

22.3 megapixel, Pro SLR, Non-Zoom

The Canon 5D Mark III is a true "superstar" camera, with impressive capabilities for both still and video shooting. It suits the needs of well-heeled amateurs and working pros equally well, and while its resolution is only very slightly higher than that of the 5D Mark II, the Canon 5D Mark III offers so many improvements over its predecessor that it'll be an easy upgrade decision for many 5D Mark II owners.

Canon 5DS R

50.6 megapixel, Pro SLR, Non-Zoom

The Canon 5DS R, the highest-resolution EOS body to date, is an all-around striking camera that captures some seriously impressive, incredibly detailed photographs. The higher resolution sensor does make shooting technique more crucial though, and the video features and ISO range are limited compared to other full-frame cameras, so the 5DS R is certainly not everyone. For professional and advanced enthusiast portrait, editorial, landscape and nature photographers looking for extreme image detail in a tried-and-true Canon DSLR package -- without jumping to a digital medium format system -- the Canon 5DS R is the answer.

Canon 6D

20.2 megapixel, Pro SLR, 4.38x Zoom

With the 20.2-megapixel EOS 6D, Canon has created a smaller, lighter and less expensive full-frame digital SLR for prosumer photographers. In many ways, the well-designed 6D is a mini 5D Mark III for the rest of us. While it doesn't feature as robust a camera build as that step-up model, and its autofocus system is decidedly basic, the Canon 6D is otherwise a fantastic, responsive DSLR that offers the glories of full-frame in a trim but comfy camera body. Plus, you get full-featured, built-in Wi-Fi and GPS to boot.

image of the Canon EOS 7D digital camera

Canon 7D

18.0 megapixel, Pro SLR, 3.80x Zoom

In many ways the Canon EOS 7D stands alone. It's a DSLR that can capture 18MP images at 8fps and 14-bit depth, with a quite usable ISO range from 100 to 12,800. It offers Live View, full manual exposure control while recording movies, Full HD movie recording, a new 19-point, all-cross-type autofocus system, a near-100% optical viewfinder, and built-in support for controlling up to three groups of Speedlite strobes. You can choose from one or two of those items with other cameras from Canon and other manufacturers, but if you want it all in one body, the Canon 7D is your only choice.

Canon 7D Mark II

20.2 megapixel, Pro SLR, 7.50x Zoom

Five years after the original 7D debuted, the Mark II version is here, and with it, a host of upgrades and new features. Catering primarily to sports, action and wildlife photographers, the Canon 7D Mark II borrows many features and performance specs from their 1D-series models, but at a more affordable price. The 7D Mark II looks to continue this heritage with an even more flexible and powerful 65-pt. AF system, Dual DIGIC 6 processors, Dual Pixel CMOS AF, improved build quality and more advanced video features. The Canon 7D Mark II is a big upgrade over the 7D in many ways, though the Mark II does falter in a few areas. Find out how in our in-depth Canon 7D Mark II review!

Canon 70D

20.2 megapixel, SLR, 7.50x Zoom

The long-awaited Canon 70D comes packed with a groundbreaking new technology -- Canon's Dual Pixel CMOS AF system -- that provides on-chip phase detection autofocus at every single pixel. That means a DSLR can finally record video with full-time continuous AF that's truly camcorder-like, with smooth racking and exceptional subject tracking. And it improves Live View AF to the point where using the LCD monitor feels almost as fast as traditional viewfinder shooting. The 70D also gets an upgrade to 20.2 megapixels of resolution, as well as compelling Wi-Fi features that include remote image capture with full exposure controls. The camera may not wow enthusiasts looking for significantly better still image quality, but the Canon 70D marks a serious step up for photographers wanting pro-level video performance and quality.

Canon EOS M3

24.2 megapixel, Compact System Camera, 3.10x Zoom

The Canon EOS M3 brings significant and welcomed improvements over the original EOS M model. There's a better sensor, better AF performance and better ergonomics to suit the more advanced photographer. Image quality is very good as is high ISO performance, thanks to the higher-res sensor and faster image processor. The Canon EOS M3 is undoubtedly a much improved, more advanced mirrorless camera than the original M, but it still feels lacking in some important areas. Is this the mirrorless camera many Canon fans were hoping for? Find out in our in-depth Canon EOS M3 review!

Canon SL1

18.0 megapixel, SLR, 3.06x Zoom

The Canon SL1 is the smallest and lightest DSLR that we've ever reviewed, delivering DSLR performance and image quality in a body that's almost as small as today's mirrorless camera models. Its features and image quality rival those of its bigger siblings, the Canon Rebel T4i and T5i. But it's not just a miniaturized version of those DSLRs; it's actually better in some ways, most notably its autofocus speed and video skills.

Canon T5

18.0 megapixel, SLR, 3.06x Zoom

The Canon T5 brings a welcomed update to Canon's entry-level DSLR model after 2011's Canon Rebel T3. Sporting a higher-res 18MP sensor, improved exterior styling, and upgraded Full HD video as well as advanced exposure controls for video, the T5 offers a lot of camera for your money. While the T5 may lean more toward the basic side of things, the image quality is very good when it's all said and done. If you're looking for a low barrier of entry into the DSLR world, the Canon Rebel T5 is a great place to start. Read more about it in our in-depth review to see why!

Canon T5i

18.0 megapixel, SLR, 3.06x Zoom

The Canon T5i might not be significantly different to the T4i, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. It retains everything we loved about its predecessor, comes with a better lens, and yet costs even less.

image of the Canon EOS Rebel T6i (EOS 750D) digital camera

Canon T6i

24.2 megapixel, SLR, 3.06x Zoom

Sporting a brand new 24.2MP sensor, faster DIGIC 6 processor and an upgraded 19-point AF system, the Canon T6i is a substantial update to the T5i and versatile option against the more basic T5. Ergonomically, it's nearly identical to its predecessor, which isn't a bad thing; controls are straightforward and the camera is lightweight and comfortable. Overall, while the Canon T6i is not a ground-breaking camera, it blends new features with tried-and-true Canon DSLR characteristics resulting in a very nice, well-rounded entry-level DSLR.

Canon T6s

24.2 megapixel, SLR, 7.05x Zoom

The Canon T6s takes the Rebel series up a notch. With a 24.2 megapixels sensor, the Canon T6s produces excellent images, with tons of detail and accurate colors. The higher ISO performance is also very good despite the higher resolution. The T6s also features a versatile autofocus system, plus improved Live View focusing features and more enthusiast-like controls. Its straightforward functionality is great for an entry-level DSLR shooter, but it also brings over more advanced features and performance from higher-end cameras to satisfy the more experienced photographer as well.
