Hey guys I currently have a canon 1100d with the 40mm pancake lens. I normally take portrait pictures outside with as much bokeh as possible. I normally take the pictures of a tripod with a shutter release. The main reason for the new camera is for the rotating screen as I find it difficult to frame my photos up on my own and it's a lot of trial and error. Also the wifi feature on both cameras will be really useful. My question is which one would offer better stills. I never use video and most of the time my photos are taken in manual 1/60 2.8 (lowest lens will go). Also the canon 70d is £200 more than the 750d is it really worth that much more if i dont use the camera for video? Thanks for any help given
The image quality between them is indistinguishable. The difference is build quality & features. Stills will be virtually identical. So again, it's build quality & features.
70D is simply better in every way, except cost is slightly more (at least in your market, in the US market, the 70D costs virtually the same so it's a no-brainer here).
70D has a bigger buffer (much bigger, almost 3 times as much), full shutter capability (1/8000s), better overall battery life, better build quality, better FPS.
Frankly, I'd get the 70D even at the higher cost just from a build durability, buffer and battery life. Nevermind video.
Lastly, you're going to be hard pressed to really see a discernible difference moving to one of these cameras from that T3. Slight (pixel peeping level) edge to these newer models. But really, you'd frankly get more of what you say you try to get the most of, which is depth of field control, by either moving to a larger sensor, or getting a faster and longer focal length lens. Example, using a 100 F2 or 85 F1.8 will yield a much thinner depth of field than that 40 F2.8 will. A simple lens change would drastically alter the look, while changing cameras and using that 40 STM with a newer camera would change literally nothing about how the image looks.
