The 1-Euro coin has a diameter of 23.25mm.

The EOS 1300D’s image sensor has an effective resolution of around 18 megapixel. That’s roughly average and will be sufficient for most purposes. Photos with this resolution can easily be printed to A3 or A2 size.

The EOS 1300D does not have a mechanism for automatic sensor cleaning. Dust that collects on the sensor has to be removed with a blower or brush.

Auto Focus Properties

The EOS 1300D’s auto focus processor uses 9 AF points (or sensors). A basic rule of thumb says that the more AF points you have, the better. More AF points mean a better chance to have a point at the location of interest in a scene, a big plus in challenging situations (e.g. when picking a single face in a crowd).

Manual focus is also possible with the Canon, a plus in tricky situations or for some creative freedom.

Type Phase Detection
AF points 9
Manual focusing
