Equipped with a grip that allows a steady hold on the camera, an optical viewfinder that enables the quick capture of fleeting moments, and a main dial for quick function switching, the EOS 3000D offers new camera users the quintessential DSLR experience. The 18-megapixel APS-C-size CMOS sensor is about 25 times larger than the sensor used in smartphone cameras. This allows it to capture more light and detail in images, and also contributes to the ability to achieve a beautiful background blur. Image information is quickly processed by the DIGIC 4+ image processor, resulting in high-resolution, high-quality output. Small and lightweight at approximately 436g (including battery and memory card), this is one camera that is also ideal for travel.
