With the EOS 700D, Canon continues its tradition of very good image quality for both stills and video shooting and provides a well-executed touchscreen implementation that makes this one of the more enjoyable to use novice-oriented DSLRs on the market.

Photos remain sharp with few artifacts as high as ISO 1,600-by the numbers as high as ISO 3,200-though sharp-eyed photographers will probably want to max out at ISO 400 for the cleanest photos.
