We gave the Canon EOS 1300D a well-earned 4/5 score, praising the camera’s great value, the wide range of EOS accessories available, and the shooter’s built-in Wi-Fi.

Here’s our verdict: “There’s plenty to like about the 1300D, chief of which is its incredibly reasonable price.”
“While this isn’t a phenomenal camera that’s likely to blow you away with its performance, it’s a solid little DSLR that’s a great option for beginners, as well as a good backup for enthusiasts.”

“Image quality is more or less on a par with its predecessor, so if you already own a 1200D then there isn’t much here to tempt you to upgrade – unless you’re desperate for Wi-Fi or NFC connectivity, that is.”

“If budget is the main concern – or you’re just not yet ready to invest greater sums of money into a hobby – then the 1300D is a great first-time option, providing plenty of scope to learn and grow before moving on to a more advanced camera.”
