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.

While a 13x19 print of an ISO 6400 photo wasn't quite as clean or sharp as I would have liked, it doesn't look that bad.

Shoot in RAW (NEF) mode and you get the full benefit of uncompressed shots; the level of clarity and detail that can be retrieved is very impressive for an entry-level camera.
