The processor powering the devices is the latest dual DIGIC 5 that offers users a continuous shooting speed of 5fps at 50.6MP maximum. The Fine Detail Mode on Canon’s latest camera line-up allows users to capture the finest image. The mode configures the sharpness, therefore giving a detailed image which can be cropped extensively.

The handy camera packs a specially designed Canon 12 MP one-inch CMOS sensor that the company claims can “deliver 12 stops of exposure latitude”. The densely packed powerhouse will come for Rs. 1,70,000.
In the past years, Canon has recorded an extraordinary growth report in India. It has carved a niche in almost all the segments, whether photography and videography. With the launch of the two flagship EOS cameras, Canon aims to get hold of 50% market share in the DSLR segment.
