EOS5DSBlackBeauty06Which camera?

The Canon EOS system was first launched in 1987 and continues to expand, with new camera models, lenses, flashguns and accessories added each year. There are currently two types of camera within the system – Digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) and mirrorless – and the common feature is that you can change the lens.

DSLR and mirrorless cameras work in different ways. To understand how they differ, have a read of this article 'Mirror, mirror'.

How can I tell which type I have?
– All DSLR models include the letter D in the model name.
– There are two series of mirrorless EOS cameras – M-series and R-series.

Additionally, there are different sensor sizes within the EOS range. Whilst sensor size has no impact on core functionality, it does affect your lens choice and field-of-view, image quality and file size, focusing and low light performance.

For information about lens choice and image circle, read the Crop factor article.
