Canon EOS 4000D - Canon announces a new plastic-fantastic entry level DSLR
The camera , designed with polycarbonate/ABS plastic – including the lens mount (strangely) is durable and mostly resistant to the knocks and scratches most beginner users may subject this to . The camera is , like most Canon bargain bin offerings , feature mostly obsolete hardware including the 18mp sensor technology from the 9 year old EOS 7D and the Digic 4+ processor from 2014 , this list also includes the 2.7” LCD which was last seen on Canon entry level cameras from 2011 , although the camera is mostly assembled from the parts bin , there will be an audience – especially beginners who may enjoy using the camera to its highest potential . Video features include 1080p recording and don’t expect any Dual Pixel AF with the camera as well. The camera is also said to include a 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 III kit- lens without IS in the package .
Overall the EOS 4000 looks to be a basic bargain entry camera for the masses , the specs and some of the recycled parts almost make this a cheaper EOS 1000 series camera – a superlaggera of some sorts , but with this model being only a few dozen dollars behind older(but slightly better) generation EOS 1000D or Nikon D3xxx models , it will certainly be a hard sell to somewhat well informed buyers.
