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 1DX Mark II

20.2 megapixel, Pro SLR

As the adage goes, "you get what you pay for," and with the heavy and pricey Canon 1DX Mark II, you're paying for the best Canon DSLR for sports, action, wildlife, or photojournalism. The 20MP resolution might not suit those who need mountains of megapixels, but for everything else, the 1DX Mark II's images are right on the money. Images look great, and dynamic range is excellent, and the high ISO performance is top-notch. Even better, the camera's versatile autofocus, as well as its incredible continuous shooting performance, will not disappoint or slow you down. Read more in our in-depth Canon 1DX Mark II review!

Canon 5D Mark IV

30.4 megapixel, Pro SLR

The Canon 5D Mark IV offers a ton of new features and performance upgrades, but keeps things modest and familiar with its similar yet refined design. The fourth iteration of Canon's popular 5D series gains a new, higher-res sensor, a faster processor, a full touchscreen interface, built-in wireless connectivity and Cinema 4K video recording. This classic full-frame DSLR offers features and performance specs that make it suitable for a variety of uses, from weddings, landscapes and photojournalism to even sports, wildlife and, of course, videography. The full-frame camera market is growing more and more competitive, so how does the 5D Mark IV stack up against its competitors? Read more in our in-depth Canon 5D Mark IV review!

Canon 5DS R

50.6 megapixel, Pro SLR

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, 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.

Canon 6D Mark II

26.2 megapixel, SLR, 4.38x Zoom

The Canon 6D Mark II delivers good image quality from its new 26-megapixel full-frame sensor and very good overall performance thanks to its DIGIC 7 image processor. Add in the new Dual Pixel CMOS AF, enhanced viewfinder autofocus and tilt/swivel touchscreen and the 6D II is a very good all-around full-frame DSLR camera, though it's not without its shortcomings.

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 77D

24.2 megapixel, SLR, 7.50x Zoom

With an updated 24-megapixel APS-C sensor and faster DIGIC 7 processor, the Canon 77D is the successor to the Rebel T6s, despite the change in naming, and stacks up to be Canon's top-of-the-line entry-level DSLR. As expected, overall image quality is very good, with nice detail, accurate colors and improved dynamic range. The 77D also features an upgraded 45-point autofocus system as well as Dual Pixel CMOS AF, plus faster burst shooting and a much bigger RAW buffer. Like its predecessor, the 77D combines the ease-of-use of an entry-level DSLR with more advanced controls typically seen on higher-end models. It's a versatile DSLR for those looking to go beyond a basic DSLR yet don't want to break the bank. Read more in our in-depth Canon 77D Review!

Canon 80D

24.2 megapixel, SLR, 7.50x Zoom

The Canon 80D builds upon foundation laid out by the 70D and its excellent Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology. With a new, higher-resolution 24MP sensor, a faster processor and a beefed-up 45-point AF system, the Canon 80D performs very well on multiple fronts, including better detail a lower ISOs, better higher ISO performance and more versatile autofocus. Although video capabilities see some improvements, the 80D drops the ball on a few popular features. Overall, the Canon 80D is still an excellent multimedia DSLR, but should it earn a spot in your camera bag? Read our in-depth Canon 80D review to find out!

Canon EOS M5

24.2 megapixel, Compact System Camera, 3.00x Zoom

The Canon EOS M5 marks a new chapter for Canon's mirrorless series. After a handful of decent, but unremarkable mirrorless offerings, the M5 combines a good 24-megapixel APS-C image sensor, fast DIGIC 7 processor and speedy Dual Pixel CMOS AF system inside a compact SLR-styled body, complete with a built-in electronic viewfinder. The EOS M5 represents numerous "firsts" for a Canon EOS M camera, addressing the needs of more advanced photographers.

Combining a 24-megapixel APS-C sensor, DIGIC 7 image processor and Dual Pixel CMOS AF in a compact, touch-friendly camera body, the Canon EOS M6 is a nice alternative to the Canon EOS M5. Both cameras offer nearly identical performance and image quality, but the M6 eschews a built-in EVF and opts for a smaller, sleeker design with a lower pricetag.

Canon SL2

24.2 megapixel, SLR, 3.06x Zoom

Canon's compact "mini DSLR" gains some much-needed upgrades. With a higher-res 24MP APS-C sensor, Dual Pixel AF, a faster DIGIC 7 processor as well as improved ergonomics, a vari-angle touchscreen and wireless connectivity, the Rebel SL2 offers better image quality and a better shooting experience than the original SL1. Compared to leading rivals, both DSLRs and mirrorless cameras, the Canon SL2 lags behind in both image quality performance and popular features like 4K video. But for those who want a fairly full-featured DSLR that's still extremely small, easy to operate and easy on the wallet, the Canon Rebel SL2 has a lot to offer.

Canon T6

18.0 megapixel, SLR, 3.06x Zoom

Canon's most affordable entry-level DSLR, the Rebel T6 shares much with the earlier T5. It differs, though, in providing the wireless connectivity necessary to get your photos onto your phone (and from there, to Facebook) thanks to in-camera Wi-Fi connectivity. It also sports a noticeably better display. But can super-affordable pricing make up for its now rather long-in-the-tooth imaging pipeline? Find out in our in-depth Canon T6 review!

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.

Canon T7i

24.2 megapixel, SLR, 3.06x Zoom

Though not a huge technological jump from its predecessor, the Canon T7i continues Canon's tradition of making reliable, easy-to-use, consumer-friendly DSLRs for the masses. Pairing a 24MP sensor with a faster DIGIC 7 image processor, the Rebel T7i offers better dynamic range, better high ISO performance and improved buffers over the T6i. Add in a 45-point AF system plus Dual Pixel CMOS AF, and the affordable Canon T7i has a lot to offer for an entry-level DSLR. On the other hand, the T7i shares a lot with the 77D, which has more features for a minimal difference in price. Consumers at least have a choice, though the T7i, on its own, is a competent entry-level DSLR. For more details, read our Canon T7i review!
