Canon EOS 850D + EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens
For the beginner, enthusiast or the need for a high quality family camera you can’t go past the Canon EOS 850D with the 18-135mm lens kit. The 850D is a great 24mg 4K camera for the enthusiast, student or family with built in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth capabilities, adjustable LCD touch screen.
The 18-135mm STM (it is also available as a USM version) zoom lens in this kit is perfect for general photography from landscapes and video.
STM stands for Stepper Motor. The STM version will be better for silent smooth video and less jarring in autofocus mode.
In summary, if you are more interested in video than still photography then the STM is the lens for you. (This listing). Any noise created by the USM lenses, such as the USM version of this 18-135mm can be largely overcome by using external microphones and not relying upon the Cameras mic (which are average at best) but using a STM lens with an external mic is the ultimate combination.
Professional videographers use manual focus with an external focus ring for more accurate control and use expensive high quality L series Canon lenses and Cinematic lenses.
The EOS 850D is perfect for photography hobbyists just starting out. The in-camera AI Focus AF enables the camera to automatically switch between One-Shot AF and Servo AF as it picks the best auto focus setting for the scene.
The EOS 850D's 220,000-dot AE sensor and DIGIC 8 imaging processor enables the camera to lock in on your subjects face, even in high-movement scenes. Eye Detection Auto Focus can be used during Still Servo AF and Movie Servo AF and will lock in on your subjects eye, even as they move in and out of scene.
Equipped with an all cross-type 45-point AF sensor, the EOS 850D enables you to freeze the moment with pin sharp detail. When using the optical viewfinder, you'll experience no lag time between your subject's movements and what you see in the viewfinder display. With the added ability to capture 7 frames per second, this camera is perfect for capturing energised scenes with lots of movement.
The 24.1MP CMOS sensor with a DIGIC 8 imaging processor will allow the camera to pick up very fine details, which is difficult to achieve with smartphones and standard compact digital cameras. The improved Auto Lighting Optimizer helps balance your shots by reducing highlight blowouts and adding a gradiation correction to bright areas- perfect for those gorgeous sunrises and sunsets.
An AF-ON button is included on the back of the camera to operate autofocus separately. When shooting a moving subject, press the AF-ON button to keep tracking the subject with AI Servo AF, and the shutter release button allows you to concentrate on shooting timing, so you won't miss any photo opportunities.
From travel to family there is nothing better than sharing your amazing images with the world. With the Canon Camera Connect App you can instantly get social and share all your adventures from your EOS 850D. Always behind the camera and never in the photos? Simply pair EOS 850D with your smartphone via bluetooth, change settings to remote shooting, and say cheers!
