Today we are talking about all the greatest Canon cameras.
From the cheapest to the most expensive you can buy
The goal of this article is to help you know two things:
The first is to put the different models in order.
The second is to note the development that takes place from the cheapest to the most expensive so that you can understand the differences between the Canon cameras well.
And all of this, in the end, will let you know how to choose the best camera for you.
There is more than one thing I would like to clarify from the beginning.
I will only talk about the professional canon cameras, I mean cameras with a large sensor and variable lenses.
I’ll cover everything about the new canon cameras, the recent ones.
Of course, the specifications and capabilities are directly related to the price
The higher the price, the higher the specifications, features, and capabilities.
But in the end, you set a specific budget and based on that budget, you choose the right camera for you.
Therefore, a company like Canon is trying to provide you with a camera in every possible price category, from the most affordable to the most expensive.

EOS Canon Cameras
Canon EOS DSLR
When you look at professional Canon cameras, you will find that all Dslr cameras are named in a certain way, which is Canon EOS then a certain number and ending with a D, for example, canon eos 5D, canon eos 90D, canon eos 200D, canon eos 4000D
You will always notice that the cheapest category is the category that consists of 4 digits as 4000D, 2000D and we find a slightly higher category with several 3 digits 200D or 800D.
And we will find a slightly higher category that has a two-digit number only 77D or 90D.
And the highest category has a single-digit number, such as 6D or 5D.
In general, we have 4 main categories, the lowest category has several 4 digits, and the highest category has one digit, But in each category of these 4, specifications can also range from great to acceptable. Let me remind you that I am only talking about the new recent Canon cameras.
We start from the lowest range, which has several 4 digits, and I think that the cheapest professional camera from Canon is currently the eos 4000D and the 2000D.
And then a slightly higher range has several 3 digits, such as the 200D or the 800D
Again slightly higher is the category that consists of a two-digit number, such as 77D or 90D.
Finally the highest being the single digit Canon cameras like the 6D and the 5D.
We start with some of the lowest denominations of a 4-digit number, as we said, the cheapest professional camera from Canon currently is the eos 400D.
Taking second place in the same range is the eos 2000D.
After that, we go to the next group of Canon cameras, which has several 3 digits. The most inexpensive is the canon eos 200D, which is a little higher in price than the previous range, and just a little cheaper than the canon eos 250D, and at this price, we find a new type of Canon camera, its name is a number, but next to it is the letter m instead of a letter D, and the letter m symbolizes that it is a mirrorless camera And if I don’t know the difference between DSLR cameras and mirrorless cameras, the eos 800d is slightly higher than in price.
Always try to compare Canon cameras and choose the right one for you. before buying any camera you need to know the date the camera was released.
For example, we have 4 Canon :
cameras that are very similar to
•canon eos 50M
•canon eos 200D
•canon eos 200D
•canon eos 800D
As I said before, the best golden advice is to buy the latest technology.
Even if it is of a lower range, how do you know the latest version?
If you search the release date for each camera.
We will find that the camera canon eos 200D is the latest camera among them, of course, this does not mean that the canon eos 200D is better all around, because Canon doesn’t just randomly price their cameras, and often the ones that have a higher price are rationally better.
On another hand, I would like to clarify, When Canon decide to upgrade or update a 3 digits camera, they usually add 50, for example, eos 700D become eos 750D, eos 600D, become eos 650D.
After that, we go to a slightly higher range, which is given a two-digit number, the Canon Eos 77D, and then higher than the Canon Eos 80D, and the one higher than that is the Canon Eos 90D.
Canon EOS M
In the same category, we can compare it to a camera from the M. series of cameras, it is a very good camera canon eos M6 Mark II.
What does Mark II mean?
This camera came with a first version called the canon eos M6, and then Canon made an update for the camera and a new version was downloaded from it, so the name of the new camera was canon eos M6 Mark II, and the update for the same camera is very frequent.
Also, a very important point regarding the Canon line of production was the Canon Eos 70D, turning to the Canon Eos 80D, and now we have the Canon Eos 77D.
Now we will talk about the highest category that has a single-digit number
• Canon EOS 6D Mark II
• Canon EOS 5D Mark IV
• Canon EOS 1D Mark II
• Canon EOS 7D Mark II
And the camera canon eos 6D Mark II, This is the cheapest full-frame camera you can buy, and if you don’t know what it means, full-frame and sensor sizes.
Supposed before canon eos 6D Mark II in canon eos 7D.
Canon’s flagship was in a crop sensor, and the flash chip was the highest camera it could offer, but the last update Canon made in the 7D was from 2014.
And the latest thing in it is the canon eos 7D Mark II, and this camera is extremely hard to get new from the market except for very few vendors.
Therefore, the flagship for Canon Crop Sensor cameras is currently the canon eos 90D or its equivalent in the M series — canon eos m6 Mark II.
Thus, when we talked about the highest range of Canon cameras, which is branded in a single-digit series.
The most affordable new camera in this range is the Canon EOS 6D and this camera has been updated and available now in the market which is the canon eos 6D Mark II.
And at this price, we can find another new type of Canon cameras.
Canon EOS R
Which is considered the latest and newest ever and the future that Canon will consume the whole market by which is the R series cameras and a series of full-frame mirrorless cameras
The lowest ranking camera in the r series of cameras is the eos rp camera, which is a small mirrorless version of the canon eos m6 mark II.
A little higher than that, but in the same range, having a single-digit number, the canon eos 5D cameras, and I intentionally say cameras because you will find many versions, the most famous and latest of which is the canon eos 5D Mark IV.
Similar to it from the R series is the eos r which is an updated mirrorless version of the canon eos 5D Mark IV camera.
Following that we can go back to Canon’s flagships, with the best full-frame DSLR camera from Canon- the Canon EOS 1D-X Mark III camera. And this is Among the 1D cameras, and I say cameras because you will find many different versions of them, but as I said, this is the most famous and the most recent.
Now we can go on a tour of all professional Canon cameras.
And so that we can summarize the whole topic, we will say the following :
Currently, there’re three types of professional Canon cameras
The D series Canon cameras and DSLR cameras which is the oldest series of professional cameras sold by Canon,
And then there are m-series cameras, and they have Crop Sensor mirrorless cameras,
Then cameras from the R series which is the latest series of cameras from Canon, all of which are full-frame mirrorless cameras.
The D series Canon cameras are divided into 4 main categories with numbers :
The lowest category has a number made of 4 digits and the highest category is distinguishable by its one-digit number.
Each ranger offer different degrees or levels, of course.
We will notice that some Canon cameras from the d series are matched by other cameras from the M series or the R series. Of course, the whole future will be for mirrorless cameras, and therefore you will find that Canon is more interested in its r series cameras than any other, and now, let’s talk about the development that is happening to the canon.
Cameras in terms of capabilities and specifications :
The higher the price the better camera you get, but for sure I will not be able to talk about all the developments that are taking place in the capabilities and specifications because they are very many, and therefore I will focus on the following points:
Body design in general, the size of the sensor, the accuracy of the sensor in mega-pixels, the model of the processor, the speed of continuous shooting, the Fox system in general, the different video systems, the space, and the performance of the battery.
I want you to think that the purpose of the explanation is not that you know every detail about all the cameras I am talking about, or that I am making a detailed comparison between all these Canon cameras.
But I want you to have a general idea of what the differences between the cameras look like every time the price goes higher and the points we are talking about are very sufficient.
So that you have an excellent perception of the difference between the camera in terms of specifications and capabilities.
Canon EOS 4000D
Let’s firstly start with the cheapest professional Canon camera, the camera canon eos 4000D.
Let’s start talking about Body design in general :
First, the entire body is made of plastic, even the lining mount, which is often metal.
And if we look at the camera from the front, we will not find anything but the button to take off the lens, on one empty side, and there is nothing on the other side where the installation of the Mini HD is.
And under that is a place to install a mini USB and in the back, we find a stable screen, the quality of which we can say is acceptable.
And of course, there is no touch control feature, the quality of the buttons is considered acceptable and you have an optical viewfinder, and below you will find a LED viewfinder while the camera is on or copied to the Memory card.
From above you can find a pop-up flash and you can open it and close it with your hand, and below you will find a place to install an external flash. and on the occasion of the external flash
Canon is here to pick up something called Universal Bean.
This means that you will not be able to operate all the possible external flashes, only Canon flashes or some flashes that use a special format starter to work with the canon eos 4000D.
On the side, we find a dial to change the imaging systems, which includes everything from the first opening and closing of the camera, the various changing systems, and the video recording system.
And then you have one dial to change the shooting settings and the shutter button.
And from below, you will find the installation location of the Tripod, next to the battery’s port, and the memory card.
And of course, this design will make the Tri-Pod Plate lock on the battery door and the memory card.
Let’s talk about the specifications, of course, the APS-C sensor with a Crop Factor 1:1.6, the accuracy of the sensor is 18 megapixel, and the DIGIC 4 Plus processor, the speed of sequential shooting is 3 frames per second.
And regarding the focus system, it is fast if you use the viewfinder, the viewfinder has 9 fox points, but the focus is very slow in live view.
And, of course, there is no Auto Pixel, Auto Focus means the focus is not suitable for video shooting.
The camera records Full HD video at the first speed of 24 to 30 frames per second.
And it shoots HD video at 50 and 60 frames per second. The battery size is 860 mAh, and it will be enough to shoot about 500 pictures in one go. This is how we explained the most inexpensive professional camera from Canon EOS 4000D.
We are talking about the camera, which is slightly higher in price.
And I want you to always notice the price difference between the two Canon cameras.
And try to see the extent of development that you get, whether in the design of the body or the capabilities and specifications.
Canon EOS 2000D
And keep in mind that if there is anything I did not explicitly explain to you, that implicitly means it has not changed from the older version.
The body is still all made of plastic, but at least the lens mount is made of metal
From the front, we can find the addition of auxiliary lighting for a better Focus, but we notice the addition of a place for the dummy wire.
On the other hand, we will find a place to connect a remote control to control the camera.
And we will find the place for NFC
In the back, we can still find a fixed screen, but at least its size is still a little larger.
And its quality is still a little better, but it still has no touch control.
We find the same number of buttons, but the quality of the buttons has become better and the writing on the buttons itself is also better and there is an additional LED lamp that shows the status of the Wi-Fi.
From above, we find that the pop-up flash has a special button, but the same problem with the external flash is also without the universal beam, and we find a special switch to open and close the camera, next to Dial, to change the imaging systems, but when it comes to the bottom, nothing has changed.
As for the specifications, the size of the sensor is the same, but here you have a newer sensor with 24-megapixel accuracy, the same sensor that was in the Canon eos 80 D, and this is a great development in itself.
We also get the same processor, Digic 4 Plus, the shooting speed is 3 frames per second.
And the Fox system is as fast in the Viewfinder and has 9 focus points, but it is very slow in the Live View.
And of course, there is no dual pixel autofocus, so the focus is not suitable for video shooting.
The same capabilities of Full HD video recording from 24 to 30 frames per second and HD at 50 and 60 frames per second and the same battery size of 860 mAh.
That would suffice for about 500 photos on one charge.
The bottom line is that you have a good development in the body and you have a newer and better sensor, and this should help you get better results, whether in an autofocus photo or video shooting.
Canon EOS 200D
We find a metal lens mount with auxiliary lighting for the focus
On the side, we find the NFC express delivery sign, but for the first time we find a place to connect an external mic, and this is very important for people who shoot videos.
And this is outstanding for people who take pictures of themselves, whether vlog or selfie photos or videos.
And of course, the screen has a touch control feature, which makes controlling the camera very easy.
The number of buttons is a little small. From above, we find a button dedicated to Wi-Fi, next to a lamp that shows the status of Wi-Fi, and finally the universal beam in the place where the external flash is installed.
This means that you can install any type of external flash, and we find a switch that opens and locks the camera.
There is also a conversion to the video recording system, and this will allow you to easily transfer the photo and video indicator
Below is almost the same design.
Yet Specifications we will find a very big development, although we find the same sensor that passed with 24-megapixel accuracy, which is the same as the 80D sensor, here we have a newer and more powerful processor than the DIGIC 7 and this will make a very big leap in almost everything.
The continuous shooting speed is five frames per second
The focus system is powerful and very fast, and for the first time we meet with Dual Pixel Auto Focus.
This is a fabulous focus system, especially in video shooting, the number of focus points is still 9, but using Live View is very interesting.
And you can set focus almost anywhere in the frame quickly and easily via the touch screen.
Capture a Full HD video from the first speed of 24 to 60 frames per second.
Let’s forget about HD-quality Photography, The battery size is larger than 1040 mAh. It will be enough to shoot about 650 pictures in one full charge. Of course, here we notice that there is a very big qualitative leap.
Canon EOS 800D
We will find better In Design Body, from the front, we will find the addition of an IR receiver, and this allows you to control the camera through the remote control, which is a very nice feature.
On the side, we find the location of all the connections, including the installation of the external mic.
On the other hand, we will find for the first time a new design a special place to install the memory card, This helps you transfer data quickly and easily.
In the back, we find almost the same system, but the number of buttons may be a little more, but the same excellent touch screen that you can move and rotate as you want.
From above, we find almost the same system, but with a few extra buttons.
And from under we find a different, better design because the Tri-Pod Plate is not locked on the battery door.
the eos 800D has the same specifications as the eos 200D, but the 800D outperforms the 200D in the following :
The number of focus points is 45 instead of 9.
The speed of successive shooting is 6 frames per second instead of 5. Other than that, the two Canon cameras are the same.
Canon EOS 250D
which is an update for the Canon 200D camera, and the date of its release is after the Canon 800D.
We notice almost the same body design as the 200d camera, but the 250d body is somewhat smaller and lighter.
From the front, they removed the auxiliary lights for the focus and the 250d from both sides, exactly like the 200d, but for the first time we find here the possibility of cleaning HD out.
This means that you can use the camera in streaming and live broadcasts without showing any information displayed by the camera, like the box of Focus. Other than that, there is almost no other difference in Body Design.
Specifications We find that the L250D has the latest processor from Canon DIGIC 8 and this will make the camera perform better in general in photo and video.
All the differences are between the 250D and the 200D is in the software, and while using Live View for the first time, we find eye-detection autofocus, whether in a photo or video shooting, and we find 4K video shooting, but unfortunately, without the dual video autofocus, there is a crop on the sensor. So in general the 250d is Of course better than the 200D.
Canon EOS 77D
which is a copy of the eos 800D camera, but with minor differences in the design of the body.
In the back, we will find a dial to change the settings around the corners of the signals.
Above the viewfinder, we will find a sensor to turn off the screen while you are staring at the viewfinder, this helps you extend the battery life.
From above, we find a dial to change the imaging systems and on the side, there is a protection button to prevent the dial from being changed unintentionally.
On the other hand, for the first time, we see an LCD screen that clearly shows all the shooting settings. there is no difference between the eos 77D and the eos 800D, the superiority only in terms of body design.
Canon EOS 80D
For the first time, we find a heavy, durable and strong body made of magnesium and resistant to rain and dust.
On the side, for the first time, we find a place to install external speakers, this helps in monitoring the sound while shooting a video.
In the back, you’ll be able to find a different switch to change between photo and video modes.
From above, we find an LCD screen that is a little larger, and on top, there are a few more buttons.
Below we find a giant battery of 1865 mAh, which will be enough for about 1,000 photos in one full charge.
Specifications, we must show the following :
Canon released the first 80D with a 24-megapixel sensor, then Canon took this sensor and put it in a large number of cameras such as the 2000D, the 200D, the 250D, the 800D, and the 77D.
But since the 80D is before them all, the processor in it is older than them, but of course, the 2000D has DIGIC 4 Plus.
The 200D, the 800D, and the 77D have a DIGIC 7.
The 250D has 8 DIGICs, the 80D has 6 DIGICs.
However, the 80D has more points than the shutter speed, up to 1 over 8000 shooting consecutively at a speed of 7 frames per second.
Other than that, we find that the 80D is very close to the 800D, the 77D, and the 200DV in specifications, but the main advantage that makes the 80D higher price is the design, quality, and durability of the body.
Canon EOS 90D
which is an update for the eos 80 D camera and is currently considered a flag chip in crop sensor cameras.
Almost the same body design, but we find the camera here that supports newer and much faster memory cards.
And the only fundamental difference in the back is that we find the addition of the joystick, which allows you to easily control the location of the focus point. As for the specifications, we find a very large and substantial development, the same size as the sensor, but the accuracy is much higher. We find a completely new sensor from Canon with 33-megapixel accuracy and the latest 8-speed DIGIC sensor The shutter reaches 1 out of 16000, and the continuous shooting is at a speed of 11 frames per second.
For the first time, we see a 4k video shoot, from a speed of 24 up to 30 frames per second without any aggravation on the sensor, with the presence of dual pixel autofocus, and having a video recording in Full HD, from a speed of 24 up to 120 frames per second, means you can imagine super slow-motion, but without Auto Focus or audio recording.
Of course, video recording in Full HD from 24 to 60 frames per second with dual pixel autofocus and also eye detection autofocus.
There are a lot of other possibilities, and the battery life is enough for about 1,300 photos in one day without charging.
In short, the Canon EOS 90D is the flagship camera in the Crop sensor cameras.
Canon EOS 6D Mark II
Is the cheapest full-frame DSLR camera from Canon.
The design of the body is very close to the 80D and the 90D, but the body is a little bigger because the camera here is a full-frame
From the front, we find a place to connect a remote control for professional control of the camera.
On the side, unfortunately, there is no place to connect external speakers.
And in the back, there is no joystick to control the focus point
From above, there is no pop-up flash, and this is the case with all full-frame Canon cameras because they are supposed to perform better in weak lighting.
As for the specifications, of course, here the size of the sensor is larger because it is a full-frame cam., the accuracy of the sensor is 26 megapixels, the processor is DIGIC 7, and the speed of successive shooting is 6.5 frames per second, video shooting is full HD from a speed of 24 to a speed of 60 frames per second
And I can say in short that this camera is considered to be the same as the 77D, but the body is bigger, better, stronger, and more durable, and of course, the sensor is larger and its accuracy is higher.
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV
which is considered the highest and most professional category in full-frame canon cameras.
In terms of body design, we find many differences
First of all, the body here is supposed to be stronger and more durable, and its weather-sealed has better resistance to rain and dust.
On the side, we find a place to install external speakers, and we also have another multi-purpose connector.
On the other side, for the first time, we find a place where two memory cards are installed
In the back, unfortunately, we find that the screen is fixed, but the screen here is a little larger and its quality is a lot higher, and of course, it has a touch control feature and you get a large number of extra buttons for easy control.
And once again, we meet the joystick to control the focus point.
In terms of specifications, the subject is large, of course, the sensor takes full-frame pictures, but here the accuracy of the sensor is 30 megapixels. The processor is a little old, but it is strong. Digic 6 Plus Viewfinder has 61 focal points, continuous shooting at a speed of 7 frames per second.
And we will find a 4K cinematic video recording from a speed of 24 to 30 frames per second, but with a crop on the sensor, and at least you get dual pixel autofocus that is working, and you can shoot a full HD video from a speed of 24 to 60 frames per second.
And of course, it shoots IR quality video, and it shoots Super Slow Motion HD video at 120 frames per second.
Canon EOS-1D X Mark III
Canon Cameras Are Great… But This One Might As Well Be The Greatest…
And the last camera we are going to talk about today is the Canon Flagship, the highest professional DSLR camera on the market, the EOS 1D-X Mark III.
And here we are talking about a purely different level of perfection, and this becomes clear from the first time you see the design of the body, which is huge and very powerful. The camera has a patterned grip, and this is what makes the size of the camera longer in this way.
you have many buttons in every corner on the side. You have places to connect everything, not only that. This is with the latest technology currently in the back. You have a fixed screen, but its quality is higher than any other screen, and of course, it has a touch control feature underneath it. Another LCD screen has details of memory cards, and you will find 2 joysticks to control the focus point and the new two buttons to control the focus point by touch.
The camera has 2 memory cards, but not any memory card
CF Express memory cards.
From above, there is no way to change the imaging systems. We will find buttons to control everything, with another LCD screen showing all the shooting settings. The battery that is installed here is a giant 2750 mAh batter and this is enough for more than 2500 pictures on a full battery day.
As for the specifications, you are talking about the highest professional DSLR in the market, not only among Canon cameras but higher than all competitors.
Of course, we are talking about a full-frame sensor, and the sensor here is 20 mega-pixels, and this may appear little, but this achieves a fantastic performance in low light, and in addition to this, the ISO performance in the camera is a myth.
It has 2 processors, the main DIGIC X processor, the latest processor from Canon, and it has a dedicated processor for Auto Focus DIGIC 8, the ISO, up to 819,200.
And the viewfinder has 191 focal points, and the viewfinder doesn’t get better than that. Consecutive shooting reaches up to 20 frames per second. As for video shooting, You can shoot up to 5.5k raw video at 30 frames per second with dual pixel autofocus and of course, we are talking about the focus system, there is almost nothing like it, it’s currently the latest focus system found in any Canon camera.
On the other hand, the camera has fantastic capabilities, whether in video or photo shooting.
I think this much is enough for this article, and so we have seen the development that takes place in Canon cameras, from the first, the lowest, and cheapest camera to the highest in quality and the latest Canon cameras, and we know the differences in capabilities and specifications, as well as the body design.
