It includes a 24.1 Megapixel Dual Pixel CMOS APS-C sensor, 4K movie capability, fast autofocus, and connectivity to mobile devices to help with instant uploads to sicial channels and for archiving.

In addition, the camera features DIGIC 8, Canon’s latest image processor which powers many of its functions, including 4K movie recording, 4K time-lapse and 4K frame grabs from 4K movies.

4K Video

The new EOS 250D can shoot [up to] 4K video [3840×2160] at 23.98 or 25 frames per second. The touch screen function will also come in handy if using the Dual Pixel autofocus [AF] features. It’s great to see that Canon has also included a dedicated 3.5mm external audio jack.
