What to look out for in August

3 August 2017

No matter where in South Africa you might be, the month of August seems as if it’s for photographers.

Canon EOS 77D Special

Express yourself creatively with the Canon EOS 77D, now at the crazy price of R9, 695 for the month of August. This lightweight camera is easy to carry around and capture professional looking footage on the go.

24.2 Megapixel CMOS Sensor

From the skin tones in a portrait, to the greens and browns of nearby foliage, the incredibly sensitive CMOS-style sensor can capture the rich, vibrant colours of the world around you.

Built-in Wi-Fi Capability

Designed to make Wi-Fi connections fast and easy, the Canon 77D can exchange data with other Wi-Fi compatible Canon cameras, and transfer files directly to a compatible smart device using the Camera Connect app.

Vari-Angle Touchscreen 3-Inch LCD

Shooting stills and videos at a variety of angles, as well as moviemaking is made easy. During Live View, tap the screen where you want to focus, and thanks to Dual Pixel CMOS AF, the camera will focus on that location almost instantly.

Movie Electronic Image Stabilisation

Camera shake is inevitable at times, so when the landscape is epic but you’re riding in the car on a bumpy road, Movie Electronic IS helps minimise image blur due to shake, even when recording Full HD videos.
