No two people are exactly alike, and that’s what makes the holiday season so difficult. You can’t just buy one gift that will apply to everyone, you need to purchase presents that speaks to every individual on your shopping list.
There isn’t even an easy answer when you’re buying a device for a loved one, as there are so many different types on the market. Take cameras, for example. You may know that someone on your holiday to-buy list wants a photo-taking device, but which model or make?
Fortunately, Canon pretty much has you covered with their EOS line of cameras. With every model suited towards different uses and functions, there’s an EOS camera for pretty much every type of photographer. To help narrow things down a bit, here’s a rundown of EOS models that will make the perfect holiday gift for a variety of personalities and photographers.
With simple functionality and a lightweight design, the EOS M10 is perfect for all those who want to travel around as they snap amazing photos. Built with a 18.0 Megapixel CMOS and DIGIC 6 Image Processor the EOS M10 can capture high quality images and video recordings that are quite astounding given the camera’s small size. Great things come in small packages, and this compact camera is proof.
The 50.6 Megapixel CMOS sensor built inside of the EOS 5DS allows this camera to break new ground when it comes to capturing high-resolution images, a feature you’ll instantly take note of as soon as you snap your first photo. Combined with the versatility of the EOS line, the 5DS is a camera ideal for professional photographers (or advanced amateurs) who truly need the clearest of pictures for their line of work.
Don’t assume you need a camcorder or video camera to take record beautiful video files. That’s what the EOS 70D camera does best, as the camera’s Live View feature allows for a level of recording-precision equal to any camcorder. Or better, if anything. If recording videos is a high-priority for you or a loved one, this is the camera to consider.
Think of a simple point-and-shoot camera (or even a smartphone camera) with far better image quality and versatility, and you have the EOS Rebel T6. Capable of shooting great photos and videos in pretty much any lighting condition without much need for a ton of photographic knowledge, the Rebel T6 makes for a great entry-point into the world of photography. If you have an aspiring photographer on your holiday gift-list, than the EOS Rebel T6 may be your best bet.
When it comes to speed, the EOS-1D X Mark II has next to no equal. Able to snap photos and record video at an amazingly fast rate, nothing gets by this camera, making it perfect for capturing quick-moving subjects. Supplanted by an impressive image quality and innovative built-in features, the EOS-1D X Mark II can do more than just snap photos quickly. But it does do that incredibly well, making it the perfect camera for sports and action-shots.
