Featuring the highest resolution among EOS entry-level SLR cameras, the EOS Kiss X8i incorporates an approximately 24.2-megapixel APS-C-size CMOS sensor that, coupled with Canon’s DIGIC 6 image processor, delivers both impressive image quality performance and a fast continuous shooting speed of up to approximately five frames per second. Furthermore, the cameras’ AF system, comprising 19 all cross-type AF points,*1 is on a par with that employed in the high-end EOS 70D (released in August 2013), and realizes a significant increase in AF points over the 9 point all cross-type AF system included in the EOS Kiss X7i (released in April 2013).

The Canon EOS Kiss X8i features Hybrid CMOS AF*2 III, an AF technology that has been greatly enhanced to ensure high-speed AF performance during Live View shooting and when capturing video. Based on the scene being captured, Hybrid CMOS AF III enables focusing using only phase-difference AF, making possible a focusing speed that is up to approximately 4.8 times*3 faster than that offered by the EOS Kiss X7 (released in April 2013), which employs Hybrid CMOS AF II. Additionally, the combination of Hybrid CMOS AF III and the cameras’ touch-screen vari-angle LCD monitor and Touch Shutter feature, which lets users release shutter simply by touching the LCD screen, enables quick and easy focus on a subject.

Featuring Wi-Fi and NFC*4 technology, the new EOS-series entry-level lineup allows users to transfer image files or remotely operate the camera using a smartphone or other mobile device.*5 In addition, through a connection made possible by simply bringing the EOS Kiss X8i in contact with the Canon Connect Station CS100, a new-concept photo and movie storage device to be released in June 2015, users can easily back-up and manage their photo and video libraries.

*1 Number of AF sensors, cross-type AF sensors and dual-cross-type AF sensors will change depending on lens used.
*2 A hybrid AF system that combines image-plane phase-difference AF and contrast AF depending on the shooting conditions.
*3 Compliant with CIPA standards.
*4 NFC is an ISO-defined wireless communication technology international standard.
*5 Requires Canon Camera Connect app, available for download for free from the App Store and Google Play.
