The 90D is Canon’s new flagship APS-C DSLR

Think the DSLR era is over? Well think again, because Canon has just unveiled the brand’s new flagship APS-C DSLR. Taking over from the 7D line-up, the 90D steps up to the semi-pro sector, offering a list of impressive specifications.

Check out the Canon 90D in action…

Built around a 32.5-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and paired with Canon’s latest DIGIC 8 processor, the 90D sees a jump in resolution over the 20.2-MP 7D MkII and the 24.2-MP 80D – in fact, the 90D features the highest-ever megapixel count found on a Canon APS-C DSLR.

The 90D sees a big jump in resolution over the 80D.

Along with that impressive resolution, the 90D is fairly speedy too – enabling users to capture bursts up to 10 frames per second (up from 7FPS on the 80D). The autofocus system features a 45-point set up and all of these 45 points are the more sensitive cross type design. The addition of Canon’s acclaimed Dual Pixel AF technology means autofocus during Live View will also be impressive.

With higher ISO and a faster burst rate than the 80D, the 90D can also shoot 4K video.

Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth will enable photographers to transfer images out in the field and the 90D features a native ISO range of 100-25600, which can be expanded to 51200. Compositions will be made easier thanks to the 3-inch touch-sensitive LCD, which will also be useful when shooting video.

Images can be transferred to smart devices via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Speaking of video, the 90D offers ultra high-quality 4K footage at 30p and the ability to capture epic slow motion sequences in Full HD when shooting at 120p. Impressively, the 90D features weather sealing and existing Canon shooters will be pleased to hear that the 90D takes the same batteries as the 7D MkII/5D MkIII/MkIV cameras.

The 3-inch vari-angle LCD is touch-sensitive and ‘selfie-friendy’.

Expected to ship from mid-September, the Canon 90D will cost around $1199/£1200, but there will also be options to purchase with lens combinations too.
