Canon EOS 850D DSLR Camera Body summary

The new Canon EOS 850D arrives as the upgraded DSLR to the previous early 2017 800D model. This upgrade sees a sweeping range of improvements and enhancements with Canon delivering the latest technology across all of the camera body features. The 24.1MP APS-C sensor achieves new levels of detail, with improved clarity and even better low light performance. The processor has been upgraded to the latest DIGIC 8, which enables faster continuous shooting at 7fps along with improved autofocus and even more responsive performance. Focussing is efficiently handled by an updated algorithm for the 45 all cross-type AF points, allowing photographers to capture and track their subjects quickly and confidently.

Video content creators benefit from the addition of professional quality 4K movies at 30 frames per second, a welcome improvement over previous HD capabilities. The EOS 850D retains a fully articulated vari-angle screen, essential for anyone capturing difficult angles, selfie images or videos. In-camera 5-axis digital image stabilisation aids sharpness for both video and still images and supports compatible Canon EF lenses, of which there are countless models available. Photographers who require quick and easy sharing options can easily connect to WiFi directly from the camera body as well as through Bluetooth. This DSLR is powerful and lightweight enough to appeal to beginners as well as advanced enthusiasts who need a reliable APS-C body.

Our Verdict

There are excellent options available to beginner and advanced amateur DSLR users. The upgraded Canon EOS 850D adds a host of improvements which position it firmly in this mix of APS-C sized bodies. It retains a compact form at 515g as well as the fully articulated LCD which has proven to be extremely popular with Youtube creators. The addition of 4K video and improved lightning quick autofocus are appropriate technology to keep this camera extremely topical. Photographers who enjoy action, sports or any fast moving subjects will benefit from 7fps as well as Dual Pixel CMOS AF points. APS-C sized sensors get photographers closer to the action and Canon's sensor provides the equivalent to 1.6x the focal length of the lens, especially appealing to wildlife enthusiasts.

With a new processor everything feels even more responsive than its' predecessor and a range of stabilisation modes for stills, video and supported lenses are all built into the body.  Battery life remains impressive for either photos or stills with up to 800 shots on a single charge. The ability to pair this camera with a smartphone offers a wealth of creative possibilities and sharing is quick with built in WiFi and Bluetooth. Photographers new to the Canon ecosystem will be astonished by the amount of EF lenses available, with both new and a host of used EF-mount lens options to choose from. Seasoned users will appreciate the continued DSLR upgrades which make Canon the force it is renowned to be.

Canon EOS 850D DSLR Camera Body in detail

The new DIGIC 8 processor in the EOS 850D delivers Canon's Dual Pixel CMOS AF for truly precise and accurate focussing abilities. It also makes the camera more responsive than the previous model, which managed to impress even the most seasoned users. Photographers and videographers who wish to control the camera remotely can connect through their smart phones. This provides a host of creative opportunities from recording wildlife without disturbing animals, to capturing sports events from previously impossible angles. Portraits are easier to capture than ever with advanced iTR AF with face detection, ensuring your subject is kept sharp. The 850D also supports a wealth of accessories including Canon Speedlight flashguns, perfect for strobists and studio photography. Two kits are currently available for photographers who wish to combine a body and lens in one purchase, these are the EOS 850D and 18-135 lens kit and the EOS 850D with 18-55 kit. 

Native ISO is an impressive ISO 100-25600 which means anything from landscapes and cityscapes to night and star photography is possible with this body. The ability to use either the clear bright viewfinder or touchscreen LCD allows users to control the camera in the way they wish, making for effortless and intuitive fun. Connecting with a smartphone opens up even more possibilities ensuring the EOS 850D will accompany photographers on any excursions. Battery life from the Canon LP-E17 is impressive with up to 800 shots on a single charge or just over 300 in live view mode.
