Routed via Canon CameraConnect app, available for free on iOS and android, you can save videos and pictures directly onto your smart devices and share them where they belong – on your social media profiles.

Remote Shooting

Being a part of a group photo is fun until you’re the one operating the camera. The EOS 1300D can be remotely controlled by your smart device. So, whether you’re part of a group, or thinking of photo-bombing your best friend, you can zoom and capture the photos with ease from your smart phones with a simple sync with the Canon Cameraconnect app.

The EOS1300D works well for close-up photography and producing high-resolution images. With 18 Megapixel CMOS censor and 9point AF with 1 centre cross-type AF point, you get a vibrant and detailed photograph. What’s more? With a continuous shooting speed of three frames per second, the DSLR holds well in motion photography.

Full HD Capture And Creative Filters

You can capture Full HD videos on the move with a single click. The equipment boasts a range of creative filters like grainy B/W, miniature, fish eye {obviously} and toy camera to capture photos in different perspective. So you can add your own little quirk to the clicks.

Handy Design and Live View Shooting
